Brainstorm Productions will present their student wellbeing performance, The Flipside, to Year 8 students at Green Point Christian College on March 11.
The Flipside is a live theatre experience that addresses issues of cyberbullying, online safety, digital citizenship, bystander behaviour and online ethics.
The performance highlights the importance of personal responsibility, empathy, respect and values in the online and offline worlds.
When bullying and revenge are used to wield power, characters Jack and Ella realise that they must create an ethical roadmap to navigate the online world.
College Principal, Phillip Nash, said The Flipside performance was part of the College’s student wellbeing curriculum and has been developed by education and mental health professionals.
“It challenges students’ perspectives on what is humorous, toxic, private, anonymous, humiliating, safe or appropriate online.
“Real student experiences are woven together to create a compelling narrative and theatrical experience, that poses questions about how we treat ourselves and others.
“The performance is supported by curriculum-aligned classroom activities that are designed to spark further discussion and expand on the messages from the play,” he said.
