Day of Action
Summer Safety @ Bedford Academy
Last week our Youth Intervention Specialist team were invited to Bedford Academy to deliver a number of presentations and workshops to students.
The sessions provided young people with the tools and knowledge to be able to identify situations, peers and people in the community that could have a negative influence on their life.
We were touched by the feedback received on the day, along with messages of support received from teachers and pupils online.
One pupil took the time to reach out via social media saying: "I just wanted to say thank you so much for coming to our school. I feel like this has really done some good for me and all of my peers. Thank you so much for inspiring us."
We also received a wonderful poem from Year 9 student, Lily:
young minds they seek,
fills our needs with technique’s,
we try to escape a lie they made,
but we are already too deep in the pay,
a mess we made can no longer go back,
once one is dead a life that we attacked,
unsuspected killer running lose,
whilst another is in drug use
We would like to say a massive thank you to Mr. Roberts and Bedford Academy as a whole for their ongoing support and for facilitating our visit!
