THE MINISTRY of Education has issued a ban against students playing the game called Charlie, Charlie Challenge in schools. In a bulletin issued today, Chief Education Officer Grace McLean instructed schools to monitor students to ensure they are not allowed to play the game.
The Ministry issued the ban following reports from several schools across the island of very disruptive behaviour by students who engaged in the game. Some reports intimated that students displayed demon-possessed or paranormal behaviour while playing the game.
The Ministry further advises school personnel to immediately contact the regional offices if they need help and further support to address the situation.
The Education Ministry is also calling on parents and guardians to monitor their children carefully outside of school, as based on the reviews of Charlie, Charlie Challenge there can be serious psychological effects on children. Parents and guardians should note that the playing of this game can also result in serious physical harm to our children.
