Northants Students Teach Online Safety To Youngsters
Drama students in Northamptonshire are getting creative to teach children about online safety.
Sixth-formers from Rushden Academy have written, choreographed and produced two short plays to help educate kids about dangers online.
They are performing to pupils across the county aged between 8 and 14 years old.
Further performances are scheduled this coming term. Professional videos of the performances have also been produced.
Dr Albin Wallace, Director IT and School Development for The Education Fellowship, said "The messages about online safety are crucial to the safety and wellbeing of our students, and these performances have been incredibly valuable in raising awareness and driving home the message to them, as well as to their teachers. The plays were also performed to great acclaim at the Education Fellowship's Northamptonshire Cluster teacher training day at the start of this term."
Jordan Ede, Head of Performing Arts at Rushden Academy, said "The students and I are very proud of the work that has been created and the fantastic response we have had from the schools we have visited. The cast were determined to create something that would both entertain and educate audiences and they have definitely achieved this."
