CURTAINS UP: Pinner school pupils put on performance raising awareness of online grooming

 Published on: 11th May 2022   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Two local schools have teamed up to put on a performance of a play telling the story of a boy who was tragically murdered in 2014.

On Tuesday, April 26, more than 300 Year 8 students from Nower Hill School went to Hatch End High School to watch a performance of Game Over.

This is a play on the case of Breck Bednar, a 14-year-old boy who was groomed over an online gaming platform and tragically murdered in 2014.

A spokesperson for Nower Hill School said: “This performance is the result of a cross collaboration project between Year 11 students from Nower Hill High School & Hatch End High School, who have spent the past few months working incredibly hard alongside The Breck Foundation to bring this tragic story to life, with the aim to raise awareness of child exploitation and online grooming.

“The Year 8 students found this play to be really thought-provoking, awakening as to the dangers of grooming online and a fantastic opportunity to witness their peers perform such a tragic, but real life story.”
