On Monday 3rd July our Year 9 pupils were visited by The Riot Act as they gave a live performance of their What Went Down theatre production during their Learning for Life lesson.
The extremely powerful and engaging drama aims to demonstrate safe behaviour around roads to students at a critical age, highlighting the importance of recognising and understanding how peer influence effects our choices and behaviour and how to deal with it. Following the story of an incident taking place around a busy junction pupils were able to consider the lasting impacts of inappropriate behaviour around roads.
Whilst we know that Etone College pupils are considerate and hold our Etone Values it is always good to give pupils the opportunity to consider the impacts in helping them to develop themselves as leaders of their age group. The session was well received with one pupil saying “It was the best performance I have ever seen.”
We would like to thank The Riot Act for coming to see us and delivering a faultless performance.
