Using comedy, magic and puppets, STAMP Out Bullying has the audience in fits of laughter and hanging on every word as the five important STAMP principles are illustrated.
A face, that has been sketched on a pad in front of the students, comes to life as it first looks around the room and then starts talking. The hilarious dialogue which ensues highlights the importance of making friends. In fact, the picture continues talking, moving both its eyes and mouth right up to the time it is torn from the pad and given to its new found friend in the audience! A truly neat trick.
Objects appear, mysteriously grow in size and then vanish while simultaneously students explore ways to deal with bullies and to avoid being bullied.
There is loads of audience participation and comedy as the students learn through laughter.
Each strategy of the STAMP acronym is explored as Croc, Drawing, Brice the bully and numerous illusions keep students entertained as they learn effective strategies to deal with and prevent bullying.
