Momo Challenge *important notice*

Kia Ora Whanau

Through media reports and the Ministry of Education, we have been made aware of an online "challenge" called the Momo Challenge. A recent article from the NZ Herald outlines more about this challenge: NZ Herald article.

Should your child mention the Momo Challenge to you, PLEASE listen to their concerns and support them. If required, seek further professional support.

Some tips to use to help your child:

- keep devices out of the bedroom

- monitor what your children are watching

- if they share something with you about what they have seen online that scares them calmly support them and, if necessary, report the website to NZ Police and/or Netsafe.

I have just recently been in contact with leading NZ online safety expert, John Parsons, and he endorses the above advice, especially about being available to listen to your child.

Please also see the following information from Netsafe New Zealand: Click here.

As always, as a school, we are here to listen to and support you also.
