Wise Choices

On Monday 15th March the p7 classes had a chance to make new friends from other primary schools in Orkney. We took part in a drama workshop called Wise Choices, along with pupils from Evie, Flotta, Westray and Papa Westray. The workshop was run by the Youth Theatre company.
We played games that required lots of cooperation and action. It was interesting to work with pupils we didn't know and as the day went on we relaxed more and everyone became a bit less self conscious. The games all led to a focus on the dangers and effects of alcohol.
We had a relay game that was a group task and led to discussions about the importance of rules. We decided that there are good reasons for some rules and laws and learned who we should look to for help and advice if we need it. The activity that most of us really enjoyed was when we had to be the arms for someone else and perform an operation on a patient. Each group acted a scenario with hilarious results! There are some very active imaginations in p7!
All in all the day was informative and a great, interactive way to learn about alcohol abuse.
