This year we looked at the perception of peace and identified the values we would like to see encouraged in our school. It was crucial that both pupils and their parents participated and offered their own ideas to create the vision of peace in the school. We hope that the children will eventually remember the importance of peace as an adult to help create a better world.
All the children took home a white dove on which to share and record their views of peace with their families. Once they were returned to school carrying their own peace message the doves were hung in the courtyard for Peace day. At the end of this special day the children welcomed their parents with an original version of “El patio de mi casa – My School playground.”
Among many ideas our families chose
“We will value love, friendship and happiness.”
As a souvenir of the day each child took home a scroll with all the values and attitudes chosen for the school.
