Easy to remember positive strategies to deal with bullying.

With a winning blend of drama, poetry, puppetry and staging, this light hearted, humorous production tackles the problem of bullying head on. Throughout the show students are assured that if they are being bullied it is not their fault and there are things they can do about it.

The show explores the effects of bullying on the victim as well as offering strategies to deal with bullies. Strategies such as self confidence, walking away and talking to someone who can help, are presented as useful tools to disarm bullies. Students are also reminded that we all need friends and that to have a good friend you must be a good friend.

With its colourful cast of puppets, masks and student volunteers, My Friends and I gets its serious anti-bullying message (bullying is not acceptable and cannot be tolerated) across in a fun, entertaining way.
