Speak Out! Sing Out!

An innovative, creative, one-day workshop devised through Living Song in preparation for Anti-Bullying Month November 2012. We work with small groups of pupils (8 from each school) to compose a song collaboratively, developing language of emotional literacy. This special day has been extended to East London schools after its popular success in Waltham Forest for the past two years. Click on the link below to open the flyer for more details.

“Whilst we were waiting for the concert to start one of my pupils said to me . ‘Will this be happening again and will you chose the same pupils? Please say yes, please say yes!’. My pupils got so much out of the whole experience and it always amazes me how open they are to singing so many different styles of music, nothing seems to phase them”. Jo Cull, Assistent Head Teacher, Nelson Primary School, Napier Rd, E6 2SE
