On Friday 9th November, two days before Armistice Day and the centenary of the end of First World War Oasis Academy students around the country joined one another in 14 different venues for a special occasion called INSPIRE. Hundreds of young people and teachers honouring the sacrifice of previous generations by joining a movement of change for peace as part of a national day of events.

INSPIRE is a peace-making initiative for young people, schools and communities. Its aim is to commemorate those who have given their lives in conflict in response to the centenary of the ending of the ‘Great War’, by acting as the impetus to take positive action to work for peace in local communities and personal relationships.

Young people and teachers gathered together in 14 different venues across England, Wales and Northern Ireland, alongside hundreds of assemblies, local gatherings and projects to participate in INSPIRE.

We went to St George's Cathedral in Southwark for a special service.
