This morning, together with Supertintendent Pilling of Merseyside Police and a number of other invited guests, I went to both these High Schools.
My daughter went to Deyes and I went to Maghull High so we have family connections with them both.
The purpose of the visits was to watch videos produced by young people at both schools about how the behaviour of young people affects the wider community. The Deyes video concentrated on knife crime and was a very powerful message. Maghull High’s video was about how groups of young people gathering in parks or around shops can be intimidating to older people, shop keepers etc.
and again it was great piece of work.
I am happy to say that both had won prizes in a competition organised by Merseyside Police and they can be viewed on Utube. See if you can find them via links from the school web sites or indeed Sefton Council or Merseyside Police web sites (I am told that links were being set up from today); they are both well worth looking at.
