Each year the International Day of Peace (IDP) is observed around the world on 21st September. The UN General Assembly has declared this as a day devoted to strengthening the ideals of peace.
This year's theme is Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals. It is a call to action that recognizes our individual and collective responsibility to foster peace. Fostering peace contributes to the realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and achieving the Sustainable Development Goals will create a culture of peace for all.
We will be recognising the UN International Peace day with a non uniform day and an art competition.
Non-uniform Day - We are inviting students to come to school wearing white in recognition of the day. This is not a fundraiser and we are not asking for donations.
Art Competition - We are also launching an art competition on that day - watch out for more information. The closing date is Monday 16th October so students can spend time during the Autumn holidays if they want to enter.
