Art of peace in Pakistan school

World Class Virginia | 16:36 UK time, Tuesday, 27 September 2011


Children show the art they have created for their world peace project


Teacher Aliya Asim at the Roots School in Pakistan has been in touch with World Class to share their latest project.  She writes:

"Wednesday, 21 September was marked globally as World Peace Day . For the past 30 years this global day of ceasefire and non-violence has called people to forget their differences and join hands together for peace.

"Roots School Pakistan also celebrated this day with full zeal and zest.

"Children made posters, murals, slogans, delivered speeches and promised to play a vital role in world peace.

"All these activities motivated our children to take an active role in bringing the peace to the world and they all got the chance to express their view on this topic through Art."


Thanks to Aliya for sharing pictures of pupils and their art.  Roots School would love to Twin for 2012 and is looking for a partner.

Peace One Day also contacted World Class to let schools all around the world know that they are offering education resources building up to a Global Truce event in 2012.
