We were able to reach the whole school here by doing one performance in the morning, and one after lunch, making for a nice short ten hour day;);) Despeite our initial impression, the students were all very respectful, grateful and into everything we did.
When we did our, “leadership challenge”, which is when we bring kids up on stage to read quotes and role play in different scenarios, at first no-one volunteered. There was just so much peer pressure. Then one brave girl walked to the front and was a beautiful example of how to be an individual. After her, like 20 kids all wanted to participate! Later, a few kids sent me a message specifically saying how this activity showed them what w different they can make and that they can find purpose in being a leader.
