Being Brave
Student Wellbeing Program


A resilience program for primary schools, using educational theatre to provide simple strategies for supporting emotional wellbeing and mental health.


Being Brave gives children strategies to deal with their emotions through good communication, persistence and positive self-talk - making them more resilient. This inspiring show uses song, dance and drama to give children strategies to bounce back after dealing with bullying, loss and change.

Researched and developed in consultation with teachers and school counsellors, this emotional wellbeing resource is carefully crafted to ensure children can relate to the scenarios.

Fly is a young boy whose parents have separated. He misses his dad desperately and tries to be brave by keeping his emotions 'bottled up'. Isha has been forced to come to a new country and Tim has to stand up and seek help when he is being bullied. Mikalia has to give up the rigours of ballet dancing and find a new dream, and Celia comes to terms with loss in her family.

Dedicated to Luke.
