Bullying and Cyber Safety Program
Educational theatre that addresses bullying in schools, and empowers vulnerable students to be assertive and safe in the playground and online.
'The Protectors' is an emotional wellbeing resource that has been researched and developed in consultation with teachers and students. It offers concrete solutions children can use to protect themselves from hurtful comments and negative behaviours they may encounter online or in the playground.
Cyber safety messages are delivered in a fun, memorable way. Children will be able to understand the consequences of cyber bullying. 'The Protectors' unlocks the secrets of assertiveness and gives students 'Protector Tools' to curb aggressive behaviour.
The performance follows the stories of Serena and Leo, who are both struggling to get along with their peers. Serena is aggressive and doesn't listen. Leo is thoughtful and sensitive, but he doesn't have the skills to stand up for himself and remain resilient in the face of bullying.
When they enter Protector School, Serena and Leo learn how to 'freeze and breathe', say sorry and be themselves. They discover that empathy, assertiveness and impulse control are the only superpowers they need to build confidence and positive relationships.
