Learners and students watched a production.

Based on a true story, Gemma, feeling under pressure and overwhelmed, starts to slip under the negative influence of her classmate, and via social media, all her friends. This leads to experimenting with drugs.

Students observe Gemma’s journey and in doing so learn to discern between supportive and destructive relationships. It is in the workshop that they identify key factors that impact on their own self-esteem.
