This trial confirmed that LBF's "Stop Bullying" workshop is ready to launch. In the morning of 6th July, 30 students, discussed, wrote, rehearsed and performed for each other a rich variety of scenes about bullying, its causes and solutions. The year 6 students, ( 10 years old ) produced such insights as the bully whose father is a drunk and the wheelchair used accused of being a bully when she tries to defend herself from taunts.
Student quotes included:
"You get to really explain the emotion. I enjoyed performing because if it has happened to you, you can express it without telling someone"
"I enjoyed performing most because it makes people understand more what I have been through"
"I enjoyed watching, to see what other people think about bullying"
The class teacher, Sam, said "Fantastic session that has led to all the children feeling more comfortable talking about bullying"
