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.”
