By Louisa Quinn and Rowan Oldham from Year Nine WADDESDON CE School pupils worked with creative practitioners and community members to explore key issues which were showcased at St Michael and All Angels Church, Waddesdon in Buckinghamshire. In their citizenship lessons in Year Nine they worked as a team to produce work inspired by problems brought up by villagers.

They produced work under the guidance of artists Pippa North and Ali Berrett and poets Mark Neil, Milton Keynes Poet Laureate, and Harry Baker, the UK Slam Poet of 2012. They created poetry, music, drama, role plays, visual art and installations which all explored local concerns that included traffic, parking, lack of youth activities and HS2. The work was showcased in St Michael and All Angels Church, Waddesdon, on the 25th October.

The students spent the afternoon transforming the church with the artwork and filling it with music and poetry. The students said: "It was a wonderful day which allowed us to freely explore our ideas and feelings on many of the problems in Waddesdon as well as discussing these matters and working closely with members of our community.

Art work by the Year Nines.
