Performance raises awareness

A cast of young people aged 10 to 16 are helping raise awareness of how to deal with cyberbullying through performing a short play.

The idea for the play was suggested by Jessica, one of the young people who secured a Tackle Cyberbullying grant in 2019. Jessica’s grant application was supported by the Deception Bay Neighbourhood Centre.

Jessica brought a number of students together to talk about their experiences of cyberbullying and strategies for dealing with this issue. They have performed the play in front of their peers, their parents, community members and residents of a local aged-care facility.

The play has also been made into a video.
