It’s no drama as learners help fight bullying

Learners from Macclesfield College used their creative talents to get an anti-bullying message across to primary school pupils.

The level two performing arts students created bullying-themed drama scenarios and helped year three and four children from Hurdsfield Primary School, in Macclesfield, act them out.

The learners, who were also challenged to organise enjoyable warm-up activities for the school children, wore hooded tops branded with an anti-bullying logo designed by level three graphic design students from the college.

Maura Shilton, lecturer in creative studies and visual media, said: “It was great to work with the school because the pupils were so enthusiastic and our students benefited from gaining valuable work-related learning experience, helping to build their confidence.”
