Educational Theatre

Brainstorm Productions 2016 tour launched yesterday, Wednesday 27th January, so we thought we’d give you a sneak peek at the hard work that goes into preparing for a year-long tour of ten different school theatre productions. 

The journey begins in early January and the first day of rehearsals is always positively electric. The team is brought together in a 100-year-old country hall near Byron Bay in NSW. The large space is used to introduce the team and for general horsing around to relieve any nerves. There’s dancing, singing, miming and lots of drama (of the acting kind of course!).

With the launch of ‘The Wellbeing Framework for Schools’ by the NSW Education & Communities Department in April 2015, more and more schools are developing initiatives that are aimed at empowering students to take better care of their wellbeing; as well as that of others. 

One school that’s had a long-running student wellbeing program is All Saints’ College Bathurst. Their successful approach is focused on teaching skills that students can use in their everyday life, not just about conveying information on what is ‘good’ or ‘bad’ behaviour. One example of this is incorporating Brainstorm Productions anti-bullying and violence prevention program ‘Sticks & Stones’.

R U OK 2015

At Brainstorm Productions, we did lots of important and substantial things to support R U OK?Day 2015. That’s because we believe conversations do make a difference. We believe we can help each other by taking the time to ask, “are you ok?” We believe that having a meaningful conversation is powerful. And of course, R U OK? is such an inspiring message with potentially life-changing consequences.

We also loved this year’s campaign drive to encourage people to give a big old-fashioned thanks to someone who had asked “are you ok?” when they needed help through one of life’s ups or downs. It was a great way to give our activities focus and help students reflect on the types of conversations that can be helpful to a friend who’s not doing so well.

Thanks for asking 1

Communication plays such an important role in human interaction. A heartfelt note is always a great way to let someone know how you feel, as it carries with it sincere words, personal thoughts and our deepest gratitude. In the days of Snapchat, text messages and twitter, a thank you note might seem old-fashioned – but R U OK? is bringing it back with their 2015 campaign ‘Thanks for Asking’.

Thanks for Asking is all about celebrating the power of a conversation. By encouraging people to give thanks for someone who’s helped them weather one of life’s storms when they needed a bit of support, it will help prove that conversations do make a difference. Whether you’re the writer or the recipient, it’s an opportunity to reflect on how we can positively influence the lives we touch.
