Last week, our students in 5th and 6th class visited the Axis Theatre in Ballymun to see the play Aunty Ben. This play deals with issues of gender and difference in a child-friendly way.

The children took part in a Q&A with the cast, crew and writer after the show. They got loads of enjoyment from exploring the set! It was a wonderful experience that tied in really well with our classroom discussions we have been having on LGBT issues and gender stereotypes. Thought provoking and engaging for the children.
