What is a Peacemaker?
In early November each year, students will learn about the importance of Remembrance Day, what it means and its significance.
Also at this time of year, we learn about peace and the difference between a peacemaker and peacebreaker. Today, each student wrote a paragraph about an instance when he or she was a peacemaker themselves. Some students shared that they helped put dishes away without being asked. Another student shared that they helped friends come to a resolution, thus avoiding an argument. There were many wonderful examples!
We also watched the video below and stopped at various points to discuss what was happening and understand how the man’s acts of kindness had a ripple effect on those around him.
