Siraj in Year 9 has been involved in a six-week campaign held at his local youth club, The OBC, on the dangers of passive smoking. He has been working with a core group of 10 young people that meet on a Wednesday evening.
The group have been taking part in discussion forums, research, filming, editing and acting in a film that will highlight the dangers of passive smoking and be shown to children and young people in schools and youth setting across the London Borough of Southwark.
Siraj took an active role in the group and was primarily involved in the discussion, research and editing of the film. To celebrate his participation, he attended a special ceremony recently during which his group received two awards for ‘Special Achievement in Participation’ and ‘Best Acting’. Well done Siraj!
