As we remember our fallen heroes and honour those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom, we must understand what peace is. It is easy to get caught up in the negativity that we may see in social media, on the news, and around us. But, we must celebrate the good, and remind ourselves how we can be peacemakers in our world, in our school, in our families.
We read a beautiful book called What is Peace by Wallace Edwards and had some terrific discussion around the thought-provoking pictures in the book and the great questions posed on each page.
Next, we designed our own peace posters with the theme of remembrance and peace. We recorded ourselves against a green screen sharing what we think peace is. Our posters are proudly hanging in our school.
