“Don’t Waste” – Lammas School – YouTube

As Spoken Word Educator Cat Brogan prepares to leave Lammas School this month for exciting new poetry projects in Malaysia, here’s a reminder of some of the stunning collaborative spoken word work she has inspired her students to create over the last 3 years. Also check out ‘As Cold as Isis’ in which Yr 10 Muslim students at the school speak out against Islamophobia. Terrific work from great new voices.

      Thanks for your interest in the Lammas School video. Great isn’t it? You will need to contact the poet Cat Brogan for access to the lyrics. I can put you in touch with her if you give me your email address.


  2. Hi! I’m an italian teacher in a primary school. My students like your song “Don’t waste” and they would like to sing it on the occasion of our school project on food waste. But we need the words of the texte. Can you write me them, please?
    I would be very grateful if you helped me.
    Thank you in avance.
