26 May 2011 - Research supports social welfare education
Education experts from the School of Education at Macquarie University say research indicates the integration of the social welfare of a child is inextricably linked to academic performance. A child's education cannot be looked at purely in academic terms. "You just can't separate aspects of students' lives when they cross the door into school. A child's development doesn't just stop during that time, particularly with something like cyber safety, where there is a flow-on effect from inside the school gates to outside the school gates."
Brainstorm's repertoire of shows encourages positive behaviour at school and online, assisting teachers and students to create a happy and harmonious learning environment. For more information about primary and high school productions, visit our website: www.brainstormproductions.com.au
26 May 2011 - Actors on tour - snippets from the road
After an extensive (and booked out!) tour of Adelaide, which began in early Term 1, actors Dan & Ildiko are gearing up for the drive back to Brisbane over the next few days. "We've really enjoyed Adelaide, the teachers and students are just great, but we are also looking forward to heading to sunny Queensland."
Queensland has indeed been sunny for actors Libby and Alex, who are currently in Townsville and looking forward to the rest of their regional tour, which finishes in Hervey Bay in Term 3.
At the opposite end of the east coast, John and Tyler are braving the earliest snow season on record. Hopefully they will get a chance to take advantage of this on the weekend!
Caitlin and Zac are also keen to head into regional Victoria next week, with 'The Hurting Game' and 'Being Brave'. This is just a taste of the comprehensive regional tour they will be doing in Term 3, travelling through Victoria and New South Wales, finishing up on the Far North Coast.
