Online Safety

It has come to our attention that there is a possible disturbing online challenge going around called the 'Momo Challenge'. We have also noticed talk about it amongst some of the learners in school. 

This challenge is said to pop up during harmless youtube videos, online games such as Fortnite and  'Whats app'. It presents itself as a scary looking head with bulging eyes. The figure encourages children to harm themselves or others and even threatens them with death  if the task is not carried out.

Momo is a sinister ‘challenge’ that has been around for some time. It has recently resurfaced and once again has come to the attention of schools and children across the country.
