Friday 24th November 2017 is Graduation Day for some of our Small Steps for Peace participants.
The ceremonies will take place in the games room here at the Peace Centre, with three schools from Burnley at 10:00am and four schools from Liverpool at 12:30pm.
Well done to all participants!
Small Steps for Peace has been developed by the Tim Parry Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation for key stage 2 pupils. It is designed to be delivered by teachers to class-sized groups of primary school pupils in six two-hour sessions. Many of the activities have direct links to the key stage 2 national curriculum learning outcomes for spiritual, moral, social and cultural education (SMSC).
It helps young learners to understand the diverse causes of conflict, and how ‘us and them’ attitudes can arise.The impact of conflict, and how it makes them and others feel, is discussed and the possible outcomes of violence are explored. The programme helps to develop active listening skills, and to build emotional intelligence. Problem solving and collaborative skills are learned in a group setting.
Participants enjoy the programme and proudly receive their diploma.
