PERFORMERS from a theatre company encouraged youngsters to unlock their full potential during a recent visit to a Worcester school.
Liverpool-based Pure Creative Arts spent a day at the The River School where they used creative theatre performances and workshops to try and help pupils overcome problems such as low esteem and peer pressure.
Abi Nevill, the company's events manager said : “In our schools and community work we find many struggling with low self esteem and self worth, due to the culture they are growing up in and peer and media pressure.
"We work with young people reinforcing their value, building self esteem and reassuring them that they do have choices and can make wise ones that give better prospects for the future."
Richard Wood, headmaster of the independent Christian school said there was an enormous amount of pressure on young people in society to fit into a culture that is led by materialism and celebrity.
"Pure Creative Arts complements the school’s ethos which aims to build ethical character; academic success naturally follows where young people are confident of themselves and their place in the world," he added.
