Bullying Articles

Bullying-Program-2015

We were thrilled to be featured on the Generation Next website this week with an article about how theatre can help school students deal with bullying and violence. We're huge fans of this website and the tireless work they do to help tackle social, cultural and emotional challenges affecting young people today. Read the article below:

How Can Theatre Help School Students Deal with Bullying and Violence? 

What is the number-one social issue for students across Australia? According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics landmark CensusAtSchool survey, reducing bullying in schools [1]. So how can theatre help students deal with the far-reaching and negative effects of bullying and violence?

Anti bullying

One of the most significant dates in the 2015 Brainstorm Productions calendar is March 20th 2015. Firstly, Brainstorm Productions will be taking part in the 2015 National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence by raising awareness about the impact of bullying and providing real-life strategies to help primary and high school students stand together against bullying. Actors from Brainstorm Productions will be visiting 10 Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide schools on 20th March and sharing the Bullying. No Way! message with more than 2,500 students. 

The importance of this anti-bullying initiative cannot be overstated. Not only does the National Day of Action against Bullying and Violence aim to raise awareness about the destructive impact of bullying on March 20, but it also encourages schools and students to implement longer-term strategies and programs to help address this issue.

White Ribbon Day 2014

Violence against women is at epidemic proportions. Devastatingly, on average, one woman is killed every week in Australia as a result of partner violence. While death is at the pointy end of a broad spectrum, violence against women and girls encompasses verbal, emotional, psychological, physical and sexual abuses, which all form part of a destructive cycle of violence.

The two Brainstorm Productions White Ribbon Day events held at Canterbury Girls High School and Girraween High School used educational theatre to address anti-social behaviour and how this can have a profound effect on student mental health and wellbeing. Students participated in a performance of ‘Cyberia’ which tackled digital violence in the form of cyber-bullying, one of the biggest threats to teenagers today.

The Herald-Sun recently reported that bullying behaviour is starting in children as young as age three; with research from the University of Wollongong revealing 93% of early childhood educators believe young children are capable of bullying. With most instances of bullying beginning in the playground with name calling, pushing and hair pulling, anti-bullying programs are vital to help guide primary school children who may already be displaying challenging or aggressive behaviour or to help kids who are being bullied.
