STICKS & STONES Yrs K-6
CYBER SAFETY & ANTI BULLYING PROGRAM
EDUCATIONAL THEATRE FOR PRIMARY STUDENTS THAT PROMOTES RESILIENCE, CYBER SAFETY AND ANTI BULLYING IN AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS. SUPPORTED BY A Q&A AND CURRICULUM-LINKED CLASSROOM RESOURCES.
Sticks and Stones is a fun and inclusive student wellbeing program for primary schools that reinforces positive relationships and supports vulnerable children to build confidence and social and emotional skills.
When things go wrong at home, at school or online, Toby’s body goes into fight/flight. He feels angry, frightened and confused by messages from peers, family, video games and YouTube. Toby responds in the only way he knows how – with aggression and antisocial behaviour.
When Toby meets Joe, he learns to be assertive and respect boundaries. He deals with negative online experiences by reporting and telling an adult, and learns more positive ways to deal with anger: he stops, breathes, puts his hands in his pockets, walks away and talks about his feelings. Toby cooperates with other kids to create a circus routine with acrobatics and juggling.
Sticks & Stones is designed to complement your school’s existing programs, engage students in discussions and facilitate further learning in the classroom. It encourages positive connections cooperation, impulse control and respect. Brainstorm Productions is endorsed by the eSafety Commissioner as a Trusted eSafety Provider.
