Learners and staff at Project Challenge starred in a film produced in a joint production with the Orange Box.
'Ripple' tells the story of how an incident with a knife impacts on the victim's family, friends community and the young person who committed the crime.
The finance for the film was from a government funded scheme to raise awareness of knife crime among young people.
