Hi Mike,

Talk to Becca Laurence (email becca@sonicpostcards.org) at the Sonic
Arts Network (UK). She's project manager for Sonic Postcards
(http://www.sonicartsnetwork.org/postcards.htm). The project is
working with children aged 9 - 14 and I'm sure they use free software.

End results at http://www.sonicpostcards.org/

Good luck,

Lisa
