International Day of Peace


On September 21st 2019, International Peace Day, organised by Dr. Jane Goodall, took place in Harmony Woods. On this momentous occasion, the Mayor of Test Valley, Martin Hatley, the Hampshire High Sherriff, Lady Portal and representatives from Jane Goodall’s Roots and Shoots organisation all attended. Everyone made speeches and we got to take part in some marvellous activities. Some of these were:

  •        Taking a stroll with a remarkable peace dove.
  •        Hung Peace Doves on archways
  •        Ate delicious cake
  •        Planted a cherry tree

After all of this, we said our goodbyes and parted  ways and we came back to school. Some of the Eco Group featured on BBC’s South Today on 21st September. It’s probably still available on catch up if you wanted to have a look!

We had a great day. Lots of thanks to Mrs Walker for organising the trip for us.
