Ss Aidan and Oswald’s has a long tradition as a lead peace school and a peace curriculum is taught throughout the year. Each year we have a dedicated Peace week in which we cover a wide-range of activities and learning experiences for the children to develop their understanding of inner peace, peace in the local community and global peace and how they can proactive citizens to support this. This compliments our work for the International Schools’ Award in line with the statement, ‘May Peace Prevail on Earth.’ Children and their families are invited to take part in a special peace walk, assemblies, celebration of children’s work and to take the message of peace into their own homes. Our peace activities have a truly international dimension. Our peace cranes have been all over the world and have been presented to the Mayor of Hiroshima in Japan. You can see the journey they have made by seeing the display in the small hall. Our school is a signatory of the International Pledge to Peace, supporting the peace curriculum we follow. We are regularly featured in the Oldham Peace Times. At the heart of our school is a wonderful peace garden. One of our ‘statements to live by’ reads, ‘Having a special place at the heart of our community – by having peace alive within ourselves so that we can reach out to others with the message of peace.’
