On Weds 9 July the Jimmy Mizen Foundation's double decker bus came to the School. The Foundation was set up as a way of remembering Jimmy Mizen, who was tragically murdered in May 2008.
The main aim of the Foundation is to promote building safer communities by increasing young people's awareness of the potential consequences of their actions. The Foundation has also been instrumental in a Borough-wide youth-led campaign for peace. The School was pleased to take part in the campaign by leaving handprints on a roll of cloth. Hand prints will be collected from primary and secondary schools in Lewisham and across London.
Sadly Mrs Labiche's best friend's son, Ryan Gray's young life was taken, when he was stabbed in Islington. She proudly added her hand print to the cloth along with our Head Girl and Mrs Saunders, our Deputy Head.
The hand printed cloths will eventually be displayed at Tate Modern, demonstrating schools' commitment to safer neighbourhoods.
