Elfrida have been working with the charity For Jimmy for sometime now. This charity was set up in memory of Lewisham teenager Jimmy Mizzen who was sadly stabbed and killed in 2008.
The charity have worked with our Year 4 and 5 children to travel with them on a journey for peace. As part of the programme, they ran sessions over two terms, looking at how they could develop character, confidence, leadership, problem-solving and teamwork skills in the young people.
This half term For Jimmy are taking part in the WHY? festival at the Southbank centre. Throughout WHY? Festival, the charity For Jimmy is creating a large artwork on the windows of the Riverside Terrace Cafe with school groups and members of the public. It will be called The Peace Mosaic.
The Peace Mosaic is made up of around a hundred Perspex acrylic sheets placed along the length of Royal Festival Hall. It will grow as hundreds of young people and members of the public add their handprints to represent their hopes for peace and safety in their own neighbourhoods.
