Eastbrook School would like to offer its full support to the Lost Hours Awareness Day which is the 24th March. It focusses on the dangers and consequences of knife crime; a very important issue which has impacted many families locally and across the country.
We are proud to be supporting the initiative and we are pleased to be sharing the information below, provided to us by Barking and Dagenham Council. We urge all parents to take a moment read the script and watch the clip below.
School has finished for the day, but do you know what your son or daughter gets up to before they get home? Grooming into gangs, fighting and stabbing is happening in Barking and Dagenham and we all need to play a part in putting a stop to youth violence. So, please take a minute and ask your children where they are and what they’re up to when not at home
Have a watch of this film, produced by Barking and Dagenham Council and hear from two local parents who have lost their children to knife attacks
We’re supporting the #LostHours campaign launched by Barking and Dagenham Council, which aims to put a stop to youth violence. Data shows there is rise in violence amongst young people between the hours of 3pm to 7pm.
So, do you know what your son or daughter gets up to after school, do you know where they go and do you know who they’re hanging around with? We’re asking you to please check in and start asking questions. Find out more www.losthours.org
As part of our commitment to the Lost Hours Awareness Day, on the 24th we will be showing students in year 9-11 the short video below and taking part in activities that highlight the damage that knife crime causes.
