IBSB Students Celebrate International Day of Peace

September 23, 2015

Following on from the Year 3D assembly last Friday, based on the International Day of Peace, the children generated lots of ideas as to how we as a school could celebrate this day. In the end, they decided what better way to mark this occasion on September 21st than to make the peace symbol involving every child in the primary school! During the afternoon break, each child made their way to the football pitch to join in the making of this symbol, becoming one in the name of peace. Peace One Day aims to advance active learning in the areas of conflict resolution, global citizenship, and human rights. We joined hands to unite in an effort to create the largest reduction of violence globally, as well as the largest gathering of children in the name of peace, on one day – Peace Day. It is our participation as a school and other schools around the world on Peace Day that will ensure the success of this historic event and contribute to the institutionalisation of Peace Day around the world.
