    Story

    Plastic pollution is definitely going to be the big, buzz topic for 2019.

    We know that children feel very strongly about this issue and are genuinely upset by images they see of dead whales’ stomachs full of plastic, strangled turtles, sea birds dying in plastic bags etc..

    We have recently launched a new environmental campaign called “We Are The Voice”, giving our children a voice in driving change and innovation - something they want for their future, their planet. Our aim is to directly challenge the manufacturers of children's products to be more responsible and sustainable in their use of plastics and ultimately to reduce the devastation caused by plastic pollution.

    Several of our local schools and choirs have leaped on board and we are very excited to be recording a fabulous song, “We Are The Voice”, to spearhead our campaign

    The song was originally performed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (The Earth Summit) in Johannesburg, 2002. We feel it’s message is even more relevant today.

    As well as recording the song, we will also be filming these early stages to highlight the children’s passion for the campaign. Our first choir workshop is on 10th February and our studio recording session is 3rd March.

      We spent most of Sunday in the recording studio - recording the song. The kids were fantastic and soon we will have the completed song....

      Its all picking up speed...on Friday BBC Surrey came into St Lawrence School to interview Niamh, Aleisha, Sally Cary and 4 of the performers. It was a great interview and the children all spoke from the heart. Yesterdays rehearsal at St Lawrence was a huge success and it was lovely to see all the schools getting together with their various parts and it all coming together...they sounded amazing!
