The students have loved the music as we knew they would, but principally they have loved the message that the bands are putting across and that is what we wanted.
Mrs Jill Pollard, Head teacher at DeWarenne Academy, Conisbrough
It's been really great to have the bands in. They've done a fantastic job at connecting with the students and reinforcing the same messages that we give all the time about respecting others, taking responsibility and demonstrating kindness and generosity. The students, for whatever reason, tend to listen to the bands more than us!
Gareth Ingle, Firth Park Academy, Sheffield
The bands have really inspired the students to want to do something in life. I'm convinced some have actually changed from the direction they were going in, and they've said that to us.
Dean Webster, Co-Headteacher, Newfield School, Sheffield
Following SHINE our students have gone away thinking that they can change their future and make choices for themselves
- to be individuals who can make a change in their world, in their own personal lives and also to society.
Mrs Mary Pryce, RE Teacher and Head of Personal Development Department, The Hayfield School, Doncaster.
