As cold as ISIS

A group of muslim students from Leyton have released their own music video to help tackle Islamaphobia in the capital.

Year 10 pupils at Lammas School and Sixth Form were inspired to write and perform this spoken-word track after seeing the coverage of several high profile terror cases. 

The video was filmed during a school trip to the Houses of Parliament and challenges the ethos of terrorist groups such as ISIS as well as far right extremism.

Lammas School and Sixth Form Headteacher, Shona Ramsay, said:

"A core responsibility of all teachers is to help students understand their world so that they can be involved in shaping its future and giving students a platform to speak and be listened to is crucial. 
 
"This film demonstrates the power of the words written and spoken by Lammas students as they react to recent terrorist atrocities."

Lammas pupils have previously created music videos to tackle issues such as food waste and homophobia through the Spoken Word Educator programme, which places performance poets in schools.
