Bullying and Cyber Safety Program
Cyber safety and cyber bullying in schools is addressed through a cutting edge educational theatre performance.
When cyber bullying is anonymous and undercover:
WHAT drives cyber bullies to send that nasty message, post that hurtful comment or embarrassing photo on Facebook or Snapchat?
WHY are some people more likely to be a target and why is it hard for victims to be assertive or resilient?
WHERE can they go if or when they are being cyber bullied?
HOW can we stop cyber bullying from happening?
A cleverly crafted narrative allows students to examine these questions AND their own behaviour.

Engaged! Responsive! Debrief afterwards was detailed and timely, more meaningful that it was led by the performers. Students demonstrated a good understanding of what the performance was about - keeping self/others safe in friendship, legalities and other issues students may not have been aware of.

Rose Bay High School
Students really connected to this performance. Brainstorm always presents quality productions, addressing issues that students can relate to. Performance definitely engaged the students to make positive changes – many of them get caught up in social media issues that they don't know how to handle. Highly recommended. Keep up the awesome work!
