In collaboration with the Hertfordshire County Show, the Leaf Education Teacher CPD session will give you an overview of farming in the UK and an opportunity to share ideas on ways to embed food and farming into different subject areas, to enrich the curriculum. There will also be a tour of the showground, plus a prize draw for tickets for this years’ County Show. arrow Hertfordshire Agricultural Society flyer (pdf)

Recent media reports have suggested the social media trend, the ‘Momo’ challenge encourages participants to commit acts of self-harm. It is supposedly a form of cyberbullying prevalent on platforms such as WhatsApp and YouTube, where children get anonymous threatening messages.  Over the past few months, the game has been in the news frequently due to its alleged links to three cases of teenagers committing suicide in South America and Asia, such allegations have not been confirmed by the authorities. The charity Samaritans said it was ‘not aware of any verified evidence in this country or beyond’ linking the momo meme to self-harm. arrow Momo challenge
