Saltmine put on a fantastic performance for our pupils; the recent preventative education production and workshop that took place for KS3 pupils was informative and brilliantly delivered. The production focused on important topics such as social media use, sexual harassment, consent, cyberbullying, AI, and pornography.

The performance centred around the story of Samantha, a typical “IT girl” whose life revolved around TikTok dances, selfies, and staying up-to-date with the latest trends. Samantha had a large online following and big dreams. However, as the story unfolded, cracks began to form in her once unbreakable friendship group.

The production highlighted the dangers of the digital world, where truths can easily become distorted and personal images can be exposed online without consent. Samantha found herself in a situation where she had no control over the dissemination of an explicit image of herself. This led to a crisis where she had to decide whether to try and repair the damage to her online persona or watch everything around her unravel.

As the story progressed, it became clear that filters and illusions could no longer mask the mess that had been created. Samantha and her friends were forced to confront the issues in their own lives and deal with the consequences.

The performance served as a powerful reminder of the importance of responsible online behaviour, the need for consent in all aspects of life, and the potential dangers of social media and technology. It encouraged pupils to reflect on their own online presence and consider the impact their actions can have on themselves and others.

We are incredibly proud of our talented performers who brought this thought-provoking production to life. Their dedication and commitment to raising awareness about these important issues were truly commendable.

We hope that this production has sparked meaningful conversations among our pupils, leading to a greater understanding and empathy towards the challenges faced in the digital age.
