27th February 2019

‘Breaking the Chain’ – A Gang and Knife Crime Awareness Spotlight Event

Dear Parent/Carer,

It is my pleasure on behalf of the Milton Keynes Community Safety Partnership “Safer MK” to offer you the opportunity to see a performance by AlterEgo of an educational production entitled ‘Breaking the Chain’.

This current half term, starting on 25 February, years 8 or 9 in every secondary school in Milton Keynes has been given the opportunity to see this inspiring and thought provoking production as part of SaferMK’s efforts to educate and raise awareness amongst our young people of the risks of Knife Crime and Gangs. This show will have been seen by nearly 3000 Milton Keynes Students by the 6 March.

Not only are the young people of MK seeing this production, schools will be building upon the experience with a series of workshops to reflect on what they have experienced, to cement learning and to inform them of the consequences of choices they make.

I appreciate this is short notice is short, but thought it important that having been given the opportunity, It would be beneficial for parents, professionals and other stakeholders to be provided an insight into this awareness programme. It will also provide an opportunity to share thoughts and ideas

The event is being held at Kents Hill Park Secondary School, Timbold Drive, Kents Hill Park, Milton Keynes, MK7 6BZ on Wednesday 6th March 2019 at 6pm.
