Please Share! This is a song my son Jude made as part of a campaign to stop his school – Firhouse Educate Together Secondary from being moved to City West. This would involve a journey of an hour to an hour fifteen each morning and afternoon.

Jude is on the Autism Spectrum and has had various difficulties over the years. Jude loves this school – it is amazing in so many ways. If this goes ahead I’m not sure that it will be possible for him to continue there.
