A group of wise and talented primary school boys from Sydney's west have put their thoughts about stopping domestic violence into a rap.

The students from Bankstown Public School, aged 11 and 12, wrote and recorded the song called 'We All Say No' with the help of not-for-profit organisation Bankstown Youth Development Service (BYDS), after a series of workshops tackling the issue.

Year 6 student Natrell Tawa told the ABC the song "is about domestic violence against women, but not only women, kids, parents, anybody". He also said working on the project helped to heal some of the hurt he was experiencing around his parents' divorce.

"Throughout my life there has been a few fights between my parents so the best thing to do was [for them] to break up," he said. "So domestic violence against women, we should not have it ever in our lives."

Not only does the song have a great positive message, with each boy getting a turn to have his say, it's also pretty catchy!

Well done boys, we're giving this an A+
