An anti-bullying program that uses educational theatre to provide simple strategies all children can use to develop positive and healthy relationships.
As players in an exciting video game, Charlie and Lucy must co-operate to overcome the forces of Aggrator, earn the eight ‘Friendship Discs’ and restore the ‘Ancient Ring of Friendship’.
When they enter the cyber chamber they learn to ‘stay in the safety zone’, ‘copy’ , ‘block’, ‘delete’ and ‘report’.
Together they realise that a true buddy is a real friend of your own age who is kind, tells the truth, listens, says sorry, makes you feel safe and allows you to be yourself.
Buddies 2 Anti-Bullying Program Covers
Fantastic! I would highly recommend Buddies 2 to other schools as an anti-bullying resource! Clear messages about cyber safety, friendship, peer pressure, bullying and restorative justice. 10/10.
Enfield Public School
Awesome! I liked it because I can use those ideas if I have the same problems. We learnt to relax, take a breath, count 8..9..10, put your hands in your pockets ‘til you’re calm again.....never put personal information online...we love the friendship discs and the song.
The play was creative and fun and taught me to be safe online and how to look out for online dangers. 10/10.
