There's a handy little list of the final key dates for the 2023 Springs-Waiōrea school…
After the terrible events in Christchurch the WSC NPoW Peace Ambassadors decided to hold a bake sale, with the proceeds going to Victim Support. We also invited students to write a peace message which was attached to our Peace Wheel. We raised over $450, and it was great to see students working together to bring some comfort and relief to those who have suffered.
This event has made our whole school more aware of how we treat people, and our Principal challenged students to call out racism when they see it happening.
Throughout the year we will be raising money for Shine and Youthline. Next term a team from the Peace Foundation will be coming to run our annual training day. The students will learn how to resolve arguments in a peaceful way, how to listen effectively, and how to support friends who are going through difficult times.
