Created to use with young people (aged 15-18) in schools and youth settings, the City of Melville's 27 minute professionally produced drama can be used as a cutting edge tool to support discussion with young people and raise awareness of the acute harms associated with binge drinking. The resource can also be used to facilitate discussion with the community to discourage the secondary supply of alcohol to juveniles. Accompanied by teacher resource material, 'The Gathering' has strong curriculum links to Year 10 Health and Physical Education, Health Studies (Units PAHEA, PBHEA, 1AHEA, 1DHEA) and the Year 10 Viewing Strand of the English Learning Area.
The Gathering Story
A group of friends organise a spontaneous 'gathering' when parents are away for the weekend. Fuelled by an abundance of alcohol and gate crashers, events spiral out of control with consequences that will impact on the lives of the friends and their families forever. Through realistic drama and storyline, 'The Gathering' shows ways to prevent and minimise alcohol related harm and assists in making the decision not to drink alcohol easier
Warning - contains frequent coarse language and adult themes.
