Over the past month, students of Caedmon College, Whitby have learned about important issues in the form of theatre performance.

Year eight students at the college recently watched a play that centres around underage drinking and the dangers of alcohol.

The play Smashed warns students about the dangers of underage drinking

This was part of a worldwide project by Collingwood Learning.

They present a play to students - Smashed - and this is followed by a workshop for the students in which they are tasked with re-writing the play to have a better outcome.

It helps students to understand the dangers of excessive drinking and how best to avoid this and also teaches them how to help friends who may be in trouble.

Year nine students at the college are starting to think about the subjects they wish to choose to take at GCSE level.

To help with this, Performance in Education came to the college to present a show that gave detailed information about education beyond year nine.

This even involved audience interaction where the students were given the opportunity to show the knowledge they already had on the subject.

Featuring comedy, singing and a fair amount of parody, the show delivered information to students in a fun way, making it truly memorable for them.
