Bullying remains a serious issue in schools,
despite the Western Cape Education Department declaring a zero-tolerance attitude towards it. With the rise of social media, it is at times difficult to manage bullying at schools.
The effects of bullying include:
|Faking illnesses to avoid having to attend school|
|A low self-esteem|
|Unexplained bruises and injuries|
|Becomes upset after using the internet or cellphone|
|And, becomes very secretive about online activities|
It’s important to remember that the bully often comes from a background where there is insecurity, little parent involvement, and inconsistency in actions of parents. The bully, like the victim needs to be loved, and they need to find that value within themselves first before they are able to seek it within their peers.
The KW Media Learn 2 Love Campaign is a project whereby we use comedy and magic to engage with learners at schools as well as youth groups in a fun and interactive manner. The 30 minute presentation, which uses interactive magic (illusions) and psychology, helps learners discover their value, boost their self esteems, (re)learn how to love and accept themselves and to speak positively into their own lives and into the lives of others
We started the campaign in September 2012 and have toured schools and youth groups throughout the Western Cape, Eastern Cape and Gauteng.
From Primary schools to High schools and Youth Groups, we have three different productions aimed at various age groups.
