Saving Lil & Archie
Wellbeing, Cyber Safety & Anti Bullying Program
A live theatre performance for primary schools that fosters resilience, balance, cyber safety and positive connections. Supported by a Q&A and curriculum-linked teaching resources.
This exciting live performance shows students how to regulate their emotions and connect with people in a positive way. It explores strategies for the safe use of technology, dealing with bullying and getting the right balance between screen time, sleep, exercise and face-to-face communication.
There is pandemonium on Planet Arkon when two robots, Lil and Zig, are zapped to earth and into the lives of two siblings, Bella and Archie. Bella is being bullied by the girls in her friendship group. With no sleep and too much screen time, Archie finds it hard to connect with other children. He is lonely and confused.
Bella learns to be assertive, and to ‘report’, ‘log off’ and talk to her parents when her online interactions become negative and nasty. To restore the balance, Archie must control his impulses, listen and use empathy so Lil and Zig can return to Arkon.
Saving Lil & Archie is designed to complement your school’s existing wellbeing programs and facilitate further learning in the classroom. Brainstorm Productions is endorsed by the eSafety Commissioner as a Trusted eSafety Provider.
