Warwick youngsters celebrate planting of a peace pole at their school

Leamington Editorial 21st Jul, 2022   0

YOUNGSTERS in Warwick have celebrated the planting of a Peace Pole at their school, donated to them by the Rotary Club.

The pole took pride of place in the Peace Garden at All Saints Junior School during a special assembly led by headteacher Sandra Sutherland.

Mrs Sutherland told the Observer: “The garden provides a quiet place within our school for all our pupils to benefit from an area of tranquility and reflection, which is so important for young people today. The peace pole with its very important message of peace prevailing on earth has become a focal point of our garden.

“We are so grateful to Warwick Rotary for donating this to our school. It will act as a powerful tool for us to encourage our young people to think about what peace means in all aspects of their life. We have placed it so it can be seen by all our young people where ever they are within our school”.

The Rotary Club also presented the school with a sunflower to plant in their Peace Garden.

Warwick Rotarian Laurie Day said: “Listening to the children singing their hearts out and giving so many insights into what peace means to them and how refugees from all countries can be helped made it an absolute privilege to attend”.

Every Peace Pole conveys the message “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in eight languages.
