Year 9 – World Peace Day

World Peace Day 2018, CranesYear 9 School Council reps are raising awareness of different global learning days with their year group. January saw World Peace Day, and to celebrate this, year 9 made paper cranes which have now been displayed in the library. These cranes represent the wish of peace and celebrate the importance of non violence across the world. April will see World Earth appreciation day when year 9 will be growing sunflowers in their forms.
