Dear Families,

We have received notification from one of our secondary schools this morning advising that there is a very distressing video on Tik Tok, and it is also reported to be on Insta.  The video is reported to be hiding behind other videos and to pop up without warning.  Exposure to this video would be very distressing for students (and adults).

We are aware that many secondary and some primary school students access these apps.

Any queries can be referred to the esafety commisioner’s website: https://www.esafety.gov.au/parents as they will be sending out some general advice to parents to check in on their children’s tech use at this time/helpful tips for monitoring tech use.


Kind regards,

Dana Halm-Forshner | Acting Team Leader/Psychologist – Student Support Services| Southern Melbourne Area
