The Flipside
Bullying and Cyber Safety Program

Description

Anti bullying program that explores the responsible and ethical use of technology for improving student wellbeing and mental health. 

This performance highlights the importance of personal responsibility, empathy and values in the digital world.

When bullying and revenge are used to wield power, Jack and Ella realise they must create an ethical roadmap to navigate the online world. When people post words or images, how will they be received? What will be the consequences?

The Flipside challenges students' perspectives on what's humorous, toxic, private, humiliating, informative, safe or appropriate online. The performance encourages them to think critically about their online values and behaviour, and provides strategies for respectful communication.

Beverly Hills Girls High School

quoteAn outstanding production! In a rural setting we have limited access to productions around this topic. I believe that Brainstorm fills this void. Coolamon has students from diverse backgrounds - the production accommodated this and students were constantly engaged. A tremendous feat, well done! Supports Positive Behaviour and Reflective Practice. The actors were absolutely unreal! Punctual, positive and approachable, very accommodating. I am more than happy to recommend Brainstorm to other schools. 10/10end quote

Coolamon Central School

quoteThey had the students' undivided attention! The show was highly engaging, relevant and interesting. Great use of humour and audio/sound effects. It was a great educational experience and discussion on online ethics that students will remember. 10/10end quote 

Mitchell High School

quoteThe performance was captivating! Really engaging and maintained students' interest and attention. The weaving of facts, stats and information through the narrative was very clever and effective. The performance really highlighted the pervasive nature of technology in teenagers' lives. The Q&A at the end was an excellent way to consolidate the ideas. Excellent acting! The high level of student engagement observed is a testament to their processing of the content. The performance is relevant to their lives so I would be surprised if they didn't use it as a reference point when they interact online or use social media. Strength approach is excellent. Relatable characters using very real situations, with real consequences. Highly recommended! 10/10end quote

quoteStudents were engaged and found the performance interesting and very apt - they were immersed in that world. I thought it was very good and the actors were excellent! Highly recommended. 10/10quote

International Grammar School

quoteDefinitely thought-provoking! Positive messages throughout. Very relevant content that gives students meaningful examples and something to think about before they post on social media - e.g. who can see it, once it's there it can't be deleted, and how quickly posts can spread. Excellent opening - grabbed their attention with wonderul use of sound effects. Great actors! Punctual, organised and very professional with their interactions. The questions at the end were a great way to bring home the messages. The actors were relatable to the students. 10/10end quote
