On Tuesday the 22nd of May we
went to see a performance on cyber safety. There were two actors, Brett and Alice. Brett played Dylan your average guy and Michael the cool dude. Alice played Emma, a new girl at a new school and Hannah the popular girl that got jealous. It had lots of singing but taught us not to believe everything you see online, because Dylan got tricked online by a 45 year old man who pretended to be a 14 year old girl named Sally. Also Hannah tricked Dylan and got his phone and sent bad messages to Emma. For this Emma feels really really bad. Then the
police turned up and Dylan kept on blaming Hannah and Hannah got the blame.
Our favourite bit about it was that it taught us a lot. We learnt that not everything online is real and if you get caught up in the wrong things it can be bad. For example, if somebody bullys you online there is always evidence and they can be traced. I thought it was a good idea for Emma to ring 0800Whatsup for help.
Overall it was a good play which taught all of us a lot and it was helpful to us.
