On the International Day of Peace on the 21st September our children created a design they would like to go on a ‘Peace Pole’.
Peace poles first originated in the mind of Masahisa Goi of Japan in 1955. They are made of varying materials, but each has the phrase, “May Peace Prevail on Earth,” in the language of the country where it’s placed, as well as three other languages which hold meaning to the place in which it’s erected.
We decided to create our own ‘Peace Pole‘ and erect it in time to commemorate 100 Years since World War 1 ended. The children are going to spend some time in each class today reflecting on the designs of our ‘Peace Pole‘ and why it had been created, led by our Caritas Ambassadors.
I think you will agree that our ‘Peace Pole‘ looks fantastic with the sun coming out behind it to welcome all our children to school this morning.
