Peace­ful school day

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News Brief -

DRESSED in white, pupils at a city school learned the im­por­tance of peace.

Beeches Pri­mary School, in Beech Av­enue, held a Day Of Peace where young­sters put money into a wish­ing well to raise cash for a well in Africa, learned about be­ing kind and ate their lunch in si­lence.

Deputy head­teacher Craig Ken­dall said: “The pupils be­gan talk­ing about peace as be­ing silent but we were also ask­ing them to be thought­ful and peace­ful be­fore they speak be­cause words can hurt. I think they were quite taken about that.

“Our school motto is ‘one school, one world united’ and we were putting this in the big­ger pic­ture.”
