Stranger Danger alert – Holy Trinity Academy

A year 7 boy walked home from school (Holy Trinity Academy) and waited at a bus stop on Priorslee Avenue for his  family to collect.. A grey blue van pulled up and pointed to him to get in the back of the van. Fortunately the students family pulled up to pick the student up and the van drove off. Police have been contacted. We have informed students and given them advice on how to stay safe. Can we ask parents/carers to do the same.

Sinister App Called Doki Doki (Literature Club)

We have been advised that there is a new APP that is going viral among many (primary and secondary) school age pupils.  The APP is called DOKI DOKI (literature club).

The game is advertised as a school dating app and does not require parental checks to download. It is a free APP and although users should be 13+ years children can easily agree to being over the age. Once downloaded, children have ready access to their own account.

The APP begins as a colourful and light-hearted game but takes a sinister turn within an hour of children playing where their online friend starts to talk about depression and eventually commits suicide.
