Chelsea's Choice Performance

 

This week our Year 8’s watched a hard hitting play from the Alter Ego Theatre Group. This important educational show, supported by the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Safeguarding Children’s Boards and backed by the police and NHS, aims to 
raise awareness for young people 
about Child Sexual Exploitation (CSE), what makes healthy relationships and how to stay safe online. 

The 35-minute performance features just four actors and tells the tragic story of a teenager called Chelsea. In the tale, Chelsea has fallen out with her friends and family and is befriended by an older man. Three students find her diary detailing her experiences and along with their teacher, attempt to understand what happened and how it could have been prevented. It is based on a true life story of a girl who was groomed.

This is what some of our Year 8’s had to say: 
“It was an extremely moving performance that made me cry! Very, informative and effective. I learnt a lot about online safety. “

“It was really good, and a bit scary. It made you realise what can happen online and not online as well. It was also quite upsetting.”

“I thought that the production was very dramatic and very well explained. It made me feel uncomfortable, but everyone need to learn about it so that made me feel better.”

“ I loved the way they presented it, mixing up the classroom with the diary drama. Funny in parts but very hard hitting and sad at the end. Really shocked to learn that this kind of thing happens in real life.”

All students were given a leaflet to take away and encouraged to speak to parents or any members of staff if they had any concerns or questions.
