Stockwell school launches knife and gun crime campaign

Stockwell Park High School has launched a new intiative called the Black Rose Foundation.
Inspired by the Poppy Day appeal, students at the school devised the multi-layered scheme: The Black Rose Badge, which can be worn to commemorate young victims of knife and gun crime. Wearing it symbolises a commitment to opposing violence. Black Rose Month will be celebrated annually. The Black Rose Foundation will raise money to fund grants and bursaries for young people to develop creative, sustainable projects.

The launch event was held at the Oval on Tuesday 3 March when Stockwell Park students presented their project to an invited audience.
Email enquiries about the Black Rose Foundation to theheadteacher@stockpark.lambeth.sch.uk or phone 020 7733 6156 ext 222.

An anti reflective and scratch proof sapphire crystal replica watches sale the dial. Protecting the movement is a caseback engraved with the US hublot replica and with the option of adding a personalized engraving. Will be available with either a black or blue dial and with the option of rado replica uk or a rubber strap with a pin buckle. At the pre order price, this is a lot of replica watches for the money. This is the sort of watch I have to see in real life in order to decide if I like its style or not. Ball has really carved out a pretty unique look for its watches. What replica watches sale me besides the price is that it only a 42mm, not some ridiculous oversized number. So in theory I should like them. But I feel these military seals on the case backs are strictly for poseurs. Shorter versions of the tubes might have been used to make the 12 and 6 numbers. That would be a bit more replica watches sale and balanced looking for the overall aesthetics.
