Mayor on school’s ‘Path to Peace’

Stockport Express - - News -

GREATER Manch­ester mayor Andy Burn­ham vis­ited a pri­mary school to add his hand to a ‘Path to Peace.’

The Peace Corps of Brook­side Pri­mary School, High Lane, in­vited the mayor into school.

Last year the chil­dren par­tic­i­pated in One Voice Cel­e­bra­tion Concert, at the Bridge­wa­ter Hall in Manch­ester, a mil­i­tary ini­tia­tive which united many faith groups in a common goal.

Since the concert pupils from the school’s Peace Corps have con­tin­ued this work with their ‘Give Us a Hand’ project, aim­ing to join as many hands as pos­si­ble with pledges of peace writ­ten on them in a gi­ant path­way around the whole school.

Mr Burn­ham said it was an ‘in­spir­ing’ visit.

He said: “We are liv­ing in a world full of divi­sion so it is more im­por­tant than ever that we stand to­gether and try and make it a bet­ter and more peace­ful place.”
