Refugee week

22nd June 2007 at 01:00
A play aimed at helping P7 pupils cope with a more diverse community when they move up to secondary school is one of about 100 events taking place during Refugee Week Scotland, which launched on Monday.

Common Ground, which has its final performance today, has been written and presented by third-year pupils from Bellahouston Academy in Glasgow. Twenty pupils have been taking part in the drama project delivered by arts organisation conFAB.

Rachel Jury, the project manager, says: "The play is loosely based on an American movie called The Breakfast Club, which shows how students from different cliques overcome their prejudices."

Common Ground is being performed this week for P7 audiences at Bellahouston Academy and the Tron Theatre in Glasgow.
