International Day of Peace

The theme this year is 'End Racism. Build Peace' and took place on September 21st.

The United Nations state that this is a date dedicated to strengthening the ideals of peace through a non-violent period of a 24-hour cease-fire. The United Nations also wants to address hate speech and violence directed at racial minorities. They aim to speak out against hate speech and promote a message of anti-racism through education.

Peacehaven Community School students recognised the International Day of Peace on Wednesday 21st September by lighting candles and writing messages for our Peace Wall.
