Online Safety Assembly or Class Play
Cast of 10 – 30 (or above)
The script is written for a cast of 30 but this number can easily be adjusted up or down as 25 of the speaking parts are Child 1 – 25 i.e. non-specific.
Duration: 10 - 15 minutes (not including music suggestions)
Whilst this is obviously a very serious subject there are still plenty of opportunities for humour in this performance - largely supplied by two well-meaning but rather naive grandparents!
Child 13: There are things you should be aware of.
Child 14: And the most important of these is to do with your safety.
Grandma: Oh, I always switch everything off at night, don’t you worry!
Grandpa: (Patting Grandma’s knee) No dear. I don’t think that’s the kind of safety they are talking about. Just listen!
Child 15: The internet allows us to explore a whole new world
Child 16: We can go to countries we’ve never been to
Child 17: And meet people in the farthest reaches of the globe.
Child 18: But whilst the majority of these people are good
Child 19: And use the internet for all the right reasons
Child 20: There are a lot that don’t.
Child 21: They want to get to know you for all the wrong reasons.
Child 22: They may want your money
Child 23: They may want to take your identity and use it for bad purposes.
Child 24: Never ever give out personal information to people you do not know.
Child 25: In fact, do not have anything to do with people you do not know. Anyone, apart from your family and friends, are strangers.
Grandma: (Indignantly) But I like strangers! You wouldn’t believe the number of times they’ve helped me across the road!
Child 1: But that’s different. We are talking about strangers online.
Child 2: People you’ve never met
Child 3: People you know nothing about.
