Year 7s Become More Streetwise

Staff and Year 7 students were delighted to welcome Performance in Education on Wednesday 16th October who put on an amazing Pedestrian Safety theatre presentation.

Staff and Year 7 students were delighted to welcome Performance in Education on Wednesday 16th October who put on an amazing Pedestrian Safety theatre presentation. The presentation, fully funded by Kent County Council, focused on the potential consequences of lapses in concentration and risk-taking behaviour around roads (such as using phones and listening to music, as well as 'messing about' with friends) and the importance of paying full attention on the roads.  The project, which is touring Kent, is a live theatre and multimedia style show representing four Year 7 students on a Geography field trip. During the show the students saw all the characters being distracted from safe road use with mobile phones, messing about with their friends and listening to music. The presentation is designed to change unsafe behaviours and attitudes. Stanhope student, Grace Babington and Morrison student Skye-Louise Wright said “It was a really good show. It actually made us think about taking our headphones out when we are near roads. Everyone must be more aware of their surroundings”.
