It’s ‘last orders’ for underage drinking

Last orders

Causeway Coast & Glens PCSP have put the issues of alcohol and anti-social behaviour centre stage for local secondary schools.

Through the performance, Last Orders, students see the real life story of three teenagers on an alcohol-fuelled night who face disastrous consequences. Organised by the PCSP, the aim is to help children become more aware of the lasting physical, mental and emotional impact that risky behaviour can have now and in the future.

Humorous, but with a serious impact, the play was developed with a team of doctors, NSPCC professionals and teachers, and staged by the educational specialist Solomon Theatre Company.

Commenting on the project, PCSP Chair Cllr Margaret Anne McKillop said “Causeway Coast & Glens PCSP is delighted to offer post-primaryschools across the council area the opportunity to take part in this initiative and the level of interest, again this year has been really high. The interactive workshops that take place after the play which include cast in-character improvisation allow students to effectively exploe the vital issues of cyber safety, illegal purchase and attitudes to risk.”
