“Percy the Penguin and the Quest for Flight”

In December 2017 30 children from the Children's University had the opportunity to take part in a work shop run by Oaklands College Students. The children discussed topics covering multiculturalism, equality and diversity, family values, friendship, mutual respect and strange danger. The students from Oaklands college then performed a play called   "Percy the Penguin and the Quest for Flight” which covered the topics from the workshop.

12 Children were given the opportunity by Oaklands College to visit the Sky Studios Academy in London. They took on roles of Producer, Editor, Script Writer, Presenter and Camera person in order to make their own news report on Cyber-Bullying and E-safety.
