The South Korean series features indebted contestants competing in a series of games where failure results in death.
Curro spokesperson Marí Lategan told TimesLIVE on Wednesday that Curro Holdings acknowledged that parent letters were issued by various schools within the group to encourage responsible use of electronic devices after some younger pupils stumbled upon Squid Game.
“The issuing of the letters was an attempt to alert the group's parent communities to remain vigilant when it comes to exposing under-aged learners to certain online and streaming programmes,” she said.
“As a responsible education institution, the group aims to remind parents that while the streaming platforms offer a plethora of necessary educational content, it also hosts many that may have a damaging effect on under-aged learners and their behaviour.
“Parents are urged to monitor learners’ online and streaming activity and remain informed as to what their children are looking at or watching.”
