On Tuesday 20th August the year 7 cohort assembled in the drama room for an entertaining performance from Brainstorm Productions called Verbal Combat. The performers, Blake and Pia, shed some light on the challenges that students are facing in schools across the world. Pia played the role of the new girl at school, Emily, as she had to navigate the murky waters of fitting in and the role social media can play in students’ lives today. Through the production we saw things spiral out of control and reputations damaged through false information, lies and excluding others…ultimately we saw Emily being bullied and no one stood up for her. The other students in the story decided against doing the right thing in order to fit in socially. We thank the Brainstorm Productions for the experience.
