Made in Manchester project helps pupils to remember arena attack victims

22 May 2018

Cheetwood Community Primary School in Manchester has honoured the victims of last year's Manchester Arena attack with a touching entry to our Made in Manchester project.

A year on from the bombing at an Ariana Grande concert which killed 22 people and injured hundreds more, the school has shared a video demonstrating their support for those affected and showcasing their pupils' interpretations of the pride, strength and resilience of Mancunians.

One of the sources for inspiration was local poet Zahid Hussain's Made in Manchester poem. The Read Manchester campaign is running an project which asks schools to add new lines to the poem in different languages, aiming to create a poem made up of 100 languages to celebrate the diversity of the city. 

Cheetwood Community Primary School's entry begins from 1 minute 55 seconds in the video below:

The Made in Manchester project is open to both schools and adults in Manchester until Friday 13 July. All schools that take part will be entered into a prize draw to win a collection of dual language books for their school library and the children whose entries are selected for the final poem will receive a book token.

This competition will close on 13 July 2018.
