Unfortunately, we hear all too often of the devastating impact that knife crime has on families. On Tuesday 11th June, year 6 children participated in a workshop aimed at educating and preventing knife crime. The workshop (funded by the London City Mission) was led by Jason O Shea and Sarah Olumegbon, a family personally affected by knife crime. Because of their loss, this family are determined to make a difference to the lives of young people.
The workshop was very powerful and at times emotional. It was delivered in an age appropriate manner and the children responded really well to the family presenting. The children designed posters, raps and poems in response to the workshop. Please see below for samples of their work.
