Sticks & Stones yrs 7-10
Bullying Program

Description

Educational theatre that addresses bullying in schools and provides strategies for anger management, conflict resolution and breaking the cycle of violence. 

Two energetic young performers explore the different forms of bullying at school, in the street, at home and online.  

Toby is falling into destructive patterns of aggressive behaviour. When he meets Joe, he begins to understand how these behaviours have emerged. He develops strategies for impulse control, self-regulation, conflict resolution and assertiveness.

Sticks & Stones encourages students to have empathy and understand that violence and intimidation, invading people’s personal space, and offensive comments about a person's gender, sexuality or race are all illegal and can have serious consequences, both in person and online.

This award-winning show opens up discussion about gender stereotypes and negative patterns of behaviour that can develop through inappropriate modeling from peers, family members, TV, the internet and video games. It examines the link between hormones, the fight/flight response, aggression and violence

The hard hitting narrative is punctuated with circus skills to demonstrate co-operation and strategies for improving self-control through breath, focus and channelling energy into positive pursuits.     

WINNER of an Australian Violence Prevention Award. Seen and enjoyed by over 1.75 million students!
