    Hello,

    Does anyone know any organisations that we could get into school to run a no smoking assembly for secondary schools?
    I have tried searching, but only American ones come up. We are based in north England.

    Thanks.

    Chain Reaction specialise in using theatre and the arts to educate young people around key issues, our interactive workshops for 5-19 year olds challenge young people to think about issues, learn new facts and ask questions which are relevant to them in a fun engaging way.


    Topics we can cover:

    -Drug, alcohol and smoking awareness

    -Healthy living

    -Aspirations

    -Sexual Health (including teenage pregnancy and respectful relationships)

    -Conflict resolution

    -Bullying and difference

    -Community Cohesion


    We work in line with the current national curriculum, the every child matters outcomes and the S.E.A.L guidelines.

    Here is some info about what people have said about our workshops:

    ?An invaluable resource ? difficult for us to replicate so effectively within school. Children engaged with new adults and worked together in teams.?

    Pauline Shotton, Teacher, Waterside Primary School, London Borough of Greenwich

    Students saw the issues of racism/discrimination from a new viewpoint. Drama gives a perspective on issues that other approaches to PSHE topics do not? it is very useful in exploring what/why people believe and act in particular ways? it is a powerful way to explore difficult/controversial issues.?

    Mike Roy, Head of Behaviour Support, Swanlea School, London Borough of Tower Hamlets

    ?The strength of Chain Reaction is their ability to engage with young people and sustain that level of engagement throughout the intervention. The workshops are put together in a fun way, and are readapted to suit all age groups, with current themes that maintain a comedy aspect, whilst simultaneously transmitting and focusing on the serious message they are conveying to their audience?

    Anne-Marie Sabaroche, Youth Crime Prevention Coordinator,

    London Borough of Barking & Dagenham Youth Offending Team

    I hope this is of some use to you,

    Simone Watson
    Workshops Coordinator.
