On Wednesday our Year 6 pupils took part in Knife Angel’s educational workshop at Gloucester Cathedral as part of the UK National Youth Anti-Violence Tour & Programme. They also had the opportunity to see The Knife Angel monument, which aims to raise awareness of all forms of serious violence, including knife crime. The children took a lot from the experience and here are some quotes from them.
‘The Knife Angel made me aware of the risk of carrying knives.’
‘The knife Angel was made by 100,000 knives collected from 43 stations.’
‘I think the knife Angel is very sad, but a good way to show awareness.’
‘The Knife Angel made me surprised about how much knife crime happens’.
‘I think the Knife Angel is good because it helps spread awareness about knife crimes.’
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
