In a post on the school’s Facebook page, Headmaster David Hegarty said: “It has been brought to my attention that a character called ‘Huggy Wuggy’ is being viewed online by our children, some as young as Primary One.
“Easily viewed on YouTube channels, the character is a teddy bear with razor-sharp teeth who sings worrying songs about hugging and killing.
“In one of the videos, the bear asks the viewer to breathe his last.
“It is a very deceptive character as hugs should be seen as something friendly and loving and due to its name is capable of infiltrating firewalls and filters.
“I just wanted to let parents know so you can know and be vigilant about what your kids might be seeing.”
