Cyclone Rep featured in the Irish Times a few weeks ago! The article called “Bullying in school: now is the time to act” written by Colete Sheridan, is an exploration of how theatre is used to help students prevent bullying, and our “Bullying Prevention Session” is the protagonist!

We are coming close to the end of our Bullying Prevention Session October Tour and we are delighted to hear so many great comments about it. Here you can see some of the feedback we have received so far about these shows:

 

 

“The children and school personnel really enjoyed today. Cyclone was the word of the day in the staffroom and the school yard. We are working already to implement the suggestions. I will email you with some pictures and details when the strategies are being rolled in. Thanks again”
– Niall O Sullivan, Secondary School Teacher, Glanmire, Cork

 

“I think the workshop went very well and they found it very beneficial. Thanks and regards”– Emily Lewis, Secondary School Teacher,  Cork City

 

“We very much enjoyed your show and all the teachers had positive things to say about it afterwards. It was a very effective workshop for getting the message across to the students and staff about the types of bullying and how to confront it. Many thanks again”

–  Mairéad Uí Chárthaigh, Primary School Teacher,  Cork County

 

“Feedback was extremely positive and students were more confident about identifying bullying behaviour. Thanks again”– Maeve Keane, Secondary School Teacher, Cork County

Our Bullying Prevention Session Tour (Secondary and Primary) is starting this Monday 28th and we are delighted to have so many schools interested in the show! Cyclone Rep has been busy this last year establishing connections with different organizations and groups nationwide who work raising awareness and curbing the effects of Bullying in schools.
 
Find here below an account from a member of one of these organizations who participated in one of ours sessions last season:
 
“My name is Joe Curtin & I’m a Youth Worker with Youth Work Ireland Cork for the Gurranabraher/Churchfield area, on the north-side of Cork City. I work in collaboration with the HSE/HAZ on a Mental Health programme (Mind Your Head) for young people which we deliver in secondary schools in the area. Cyclone Rep came on board to deliver their Bullying Prevention Session to students in one of these schools. I was asked to participate in this by having a table at the session. My role was to provide information about groups and supports for these young people that might have been effected by an issue highlighted in the play. This proved to be successful as I was since invited back to the school to give a more detailed talk on what services I provide. This success was magnified when 5 young people from that school signed up to complete their practical achievement award, as part of the LCA programme, with me at a Teen Gym group I operate. This may not have been possible if it was not for the partnership between Cyclone Rep/HAZ/YWIC.”
