Year 8 watch Anti-Bullying Play

On Tuesday 9 October, as part of our Well-being programme Year 8 students watched ‘The Hate Play’ in the Antony Barnard Theatre. This play was performed by Box Clever Theatre Company.

The play focused on the devastating effects bullying can have on friendship and on the health and emotional well-being of a group of young people. Year 8 students were placed in the heart of the action and challenged both to recognise the reality of what happens and to think of ways in which it could have been prevented, both in the fictional world of the play and in the real world of their own environment.
