Peaceful Project Award

Tuesday 6th November 2018 - All Day

Alexandra Park Primary have been focussing on creating a peaceful school community and peaceful relationships. They organised and held a whole school Peace Week to coincide with the 2018 International Peace Day in September. Year 6 worked with Oldham Peace Talks to create an artwork installation for Oldham Library linking to inner peace. Throughout the week other staff ran sessions with their classes on peace discussing why they have a peace pole in the school grounds and the role of their peace bears. They have elected new Peace Ambassadors to help support a peaceful playground environment. Activities during Peace Week included making paper Sadako peace cranes, peace walls and meditation. At the end of the week they had Laura Topper of 'Omazing Me' doing a 'Peace Beings With Me' session. Whites more, throughout the school year they have daily 30 minute Relax Kids sessions, The Peace Ambassadors work on all aspects of peace as does the Children's Leadership Team. They use peace thoughts and themes in weekly assemblies and in the classrooms to encourage peaceful thinking. Well done!
