Colin is a teenager who leads an extremely unhealthy lifestyle and when he is told that the Commonwealth Games are coming to Scotland, he thinks they are irrelevant to him.

Join our four actors and learn about the history of the British Empire and the nations of the Commonwealth along with Colin, our unhealthy, lazy teenager who cares more about computer games than the Commonwealth Games happening right on his doorstep!

CfE Experiences and Outcomes

HWB 2-44b – I am aware that positive friendships and relationships can promote health and the health and wellbeing of others.

SOC 2-03a – I can investigate a Scottish historical theme to discover how past events or the actions to individuals or groups have shaped Scottish society.

What schools say

“Fantastic energy which kept the pupils and teachers of all ages enthralled. Good mixture of information tempered with great humour. All pupils will have learned something.”

Gillian Stewart, Fishermoss School, P2, 30/05/14

“The actors engaged all the children with the interactive aspects of the show and they made the content relevant for the children. I loved the way the actors incorporated aspects of the unfairness of Britain’s accumulation of the Commonwealth sensitively.”

Pauline Eddie, Giffnock PS, P4, 2/06/2014
