Bigyn Primary School in Llanelli took to facebook to warn parents of a private facebook messenger group set up in South Wales to encourage children to commit suicide.

In the facebook post, the headteacher Marc Howells says he’s been informed today of a private facebook messenger group called ‘Small Butterflies’.

He said: “Girls in particular are invited to a Facebook/Messenger private group called ‘Small Butterfly’ and are then ‘supported’ by the group for a short period of time before being given their date for their ‘big day’ – ‘big day’ means the day they need to take their own life.”

Mr Howells goes on to say that South Wales Police are working to identify the admins of the group.

The facebook warning has been shared over 2,000 times so far.

South Wales Police, who were mentioned in the school’s facebook post declined to comment, but did say that they did not cover the Llanelli area where the school is located.

Dyfed Powys Police said: “The All Wales School Liaison Core Programme has provided information and advice for pupils, teachers and parents in respect of this concerning and harmful group.

“It is important that the names and details of these challenges or content are not shared widely.

“It is far better to discuss the themes surrounding these challenges with children and young people, such as peer pressure, mental wellbeing, and being safe online.”
