URGENT PARENT INFORMATION 'BLUE WHALE CHALLENGE'

4th May 2017

To all parents and guardians of pupils in Antrim Grammar School

It has come to our attention this morning that information about the Blue Whale Challenge has been circulating on social media and that pupils in school know about it.  The press have reported a huge increase in suicides across Europe in the wake of this ‘sick’ game which encourages young people into dares and risky behaviour, even taking their own life.  It is my belief that parents should be made aware that this is happening and to have a conversation with their child about it.  We will also talk about it in Assembly tomorrow, but also want all parents to be informed today.
