The Riot Act Safety Workshop

The Riot Act Theatre Company visited school on Friday 6th March to perform "Death at the Bus Stop"

The theatre company delivered important educational messages to the pupils through their performance.

The project taught the children key transitional road safety skills, enabling them to become safe and sustainable travellers, raising awareness of:

➢ The importance of good road safety skills around roads and buses

➢ Highlighting distractions such as phones, friends and peer influence

➢ Motivating students to identify acceptable and unacceptable behaviour around roads

Each child filled in their own incident report and examined an accident scene in which a young person has been hit by a car after getting off a bus. Using live drama, multi-media and an interactive set the children listened to witness statements, looked for clues and questioned key characters to find out what happened and how it could’ve been avoided.
