Catton Grove Primary School Rising!!!!!

All the children at Catton Grove Primary School showing off there new amazing T-shirts that arrived minutes before the Newspaper reporter turned up.

The school children at Catton Grove Primary School have been learning the One Billion and Rising dance at school. Every break they get, they practice the dance. They are all fantastic at dancing. 
Shelly Telly made a film of the practice today. 

There teacher Elle Barnes has been very keen and taught them in philosophy class all about the violence against women around the world. 

They had T-shirts printed with the Billion rising logo with the words Strike/Dance/Rise and there school logo. 

There practicing in there school Gym. 

Some of the children from the children went on the radio and talked violence and danced in the studio.

A reporter from the Evening News came to the school to take photos of children dancing.

On the radio just chatting about ending violence against women. Thanks to Jasmine Marie who organised for us to come on her show. Listen to the podcast.

Breaking the chain a symbolic dance move for breaking the chain of violence before it escalates.

Such a cool school in Norwich, the first school to join in the dance in the whole world.
