Cynffig DC

Ugly Duckling, Cynffig Drama Club

Drama Worker Alyson Evans is working with Year 9 pupils from Cynffig Comprehensive School. The group named themselves, ‘DC’ meaning drama club, and this group is going from strength to strength. Cynffig DC is currently working with Alyson on a peer education drama and emotional health project based around ‘The Ugly Duckling’ which they have adapted to suit Primary School pupils.

The first performance of this new drama touring workshop took place at Mynydd Cynffig Junior School at the beginning of March. Year 6 pupils enjoyed a performance followed by a workshop around the issues of friendship, bullying and attitudes that appear in the play.

This workshop was facilitated by the Cynffig DC group who have been developing their facilitation skills in this peer education project. Due to the success of this first performance we hope to continue to tour The Ugly Duckling around Primary and Junior Schools across the Bridgend Borough over the next few months.
