By sharing Jimmy’s story with young people, The Foundation allows them to see the catastrophic effects of violence. The Foundation also extols the principles needed to build up the common good: the promotion of peace, commitment to solidarity, participation in community, a preferential option for the less fortunate, and a respect for the dignity and potential of every human being. Moreover, convinced of the goodness and potential of all young people, the Foundation enables them to identify and fulfill their God-given talents by encouraging them to find positive ways to spend their time and helping them into work. In short, The Foundation makes our streets safer places and helps create a society in which everyone can flourish.

We worked with the year 6 group last time, so we spoke to the new year 6 on our return. Margaret’s talk brought up lots of thoughts around anger, a lot of students commented how hearing Margaret’s story made them think about and want to change the way they treat other people in the playground and in their class.The playground, the place that soon turns into the street and the wider world, the place where this reflection needs to start.We will be visiting Calverton in summer again, they have lots of plans for peaceful events involving the wider community. Two students will also be attending our safety conference at Brampton primary, where they will share the school main safety concern with the police.St Augustines in Lewisham is one of our Flagship schools so we have events with parents, the local community and the police organised throughout the year.
