2SMART roadshow is a hit

Young people from schools across Tendring were the first to see 2SMART 2010 when the tour started in Clacton last week.

2SMART

2SMART is an Essex Police project which aims to give young people advice about bullying, alcohol, drugs and knives via music, dance, sport and drama.

Almost 2,000 year seven pupils saw the 2SMART 2010 show at The Princes Theatre, Clacton.

Pupils from Clacton County High School, Tendring Technology College, Clacton Coastal Academy and The Harwich School attended one of two showings on the day.
 
Chief Inspector Jon Hayter, district commander for Clacton, said: “The event was a great platform for us to take the 2SMART message out to a wide audience. It gave us an opportunity to engage with young people and their families while speaking about the dangers of bullying, alcohol, drugs and knives.

"It is important for us to keep finding ways to engage with young people so that we can build a relationship that will stay with them throughout their lives.

“There is also plenty of information on the website, you don’t have to have been to one of the shows to be involved."

Pupils from around Essex are being invited to write a song for the 2SMART tour 2011. The 2SMART team will judge all entries and select a winning song which will be performed at all 2SMART 2011 shows. Entries can be submitted on the 2SMART website.

The website also includes competitions to win tickets to a Southend United game, a trip to the Essex Air Ambulance helicopter base, and a Nintendo Wii.

The University of Essex, Children’s Trust Approach in Essex and Heart are the sponsors for the 2SMART tour 2010 and around 15,000 young people are expected attend the shows throughout Essex this year.
