Three Little Birds

Pinewood school provides for pupils who have a wide range of additional learning needs including specific conditions and autism.

YAP Music was asked to originally do four music sessions with young people from P6 and P7. The sessions worked out so well that the pupils opened up 2014 Annual School Conference and came to the studio to record their song.

Youth Actions Peer Educators along with YAP music staff were asked back to work with and support the pupils from P6&7 for the  annual Blackburn Schools conference. To work with pupils, encouraging them to identify and express their views on their community through the media of music.

2013 saw the team work with Our Ladys School, they chose Cyber Bulling and this is there song.

Youth Action Project has had the pleasure of working with Community Action Blackburn for over five years running. Providing music workshops and Peer Education. Repeat requests have been made over the years asking for our Peer Educators and music staff to support the P6&7 Blackburn schools conference, to work with pupils, encouraging them to identify and express their views on their community though the media of music, drama and dance.

 

CAB also support an additional weekly Streetwork session, increasing the capacity of our service to Blackburn. The Streetwork team engage with young people in the community and address issues relating to youth disorder.

2014 saw the YAP Music team working with pupils and staff from Pinewood School where they recorded and performed the song ' Three Little Birds ' at the annual interschool p6/7 conference.
