Don't Pack up your Troubles - Effectus Theatre Company

Today the children had a visit from the Effectus Theatre Company. They watched the piece called 'Don't Pack up your Troubles'. This is a very topical and challenging piece, which hopes to provoke thinking amongst children on internet safety, the effects of cyber-bullying and how to act upon anything that worries children regarding the internet (stop, block, tell, forward). After the performance all the children returned to their classes where they had a good discussion with their teachers about what they have learned and how can they put it into practice. Here are some of the quotes from the children:

"I learned that you need to be 13 to open a Facebook account", Tom class 3

"If we are worried we tell our parents", Luciana class 5
