Year 7 Verbal Combat
The Year 7 girls watched a performance by Brainstorm Productions which was a play set in a secondary school.
The focus was on issues relating to relationships and friendships, with a particular focus on exclusion, verbal bullying and cyber bullying. It was a riveting performance, with many messages for the girls to think about. In Form, in the forthcoming weeks, the girls will explore these issues further with their Form Teacher.
Below are some of the messages that the girls took away from the play.
