"Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be young was very heaven!"

We have been worried about the refugee crisis. We wanted to raise awareness of the issue, and to make positive contributions which will help the refugees. We collected clothing, etc, raised money, and put on this exhibition in St Oswald’s Church. It was inspired by various artists’ work (Banksy, Gerry Judah and especially Arabella Dorman). It sparked a lot of interest and discussion. Prince Charles visited it. This is the sound installation which we created to go with the 3D artwork in church. These are our hopes, wishes and prayers.

HRH The Prince of Wales visited our installation and talked at length with children about it. He was very impressed.

BBC and ITV News came into school. We think that we made our voices heard. Small school, huge voice. Roaring like lions. Gentle as lambs.
