Parent Notice: The Blue Whale

May 2, 2017

 

Child Protection at the Education Authority have alerted us to the existence of “The Blue Whale”.  This is described as a game, but the Blue Whale Challenge is far from a game.  Young teens   who accept the challenge are encouraged to complete a series of tasks which get more and more sinister and at the end of the game the player is urged to take their own life in order to “ win”.

 

We would like to alert parents/carers to the dangers of their child engaging in the distressing online trend and would urge parents/careers to discuss online activity and safety with their children.
