Interactive Theatre Workshop
Following on from sessions with children who are currently being looked after, pupil representatives from the school council in every Secondary School in RCT were invited to participate in an interactive theatre session, at Aberdare Community School on November 17th 2016.
Spectacle Theatre Company were commissioned to facilitate this session, on the four areas of safeguarding children in relation to abuse i.e. physical, neglect, emotional and sexual (this was to explore sexting). The session was well attended by schools with a mix of ages.
The pupils who attended fully participated in this interactive session, where they had to give their own views and ideas as to what was being conveyed via the theatre workshop. They explored the various issues of safeguarding and then went on to participate in person.
As we did not have enough time to fully explore the issues which were arising, we intend a follow up session on 19th January, 2017.
The young people expressed their enjoyment of the session, as did the teachers who brought them along!
