UN International Day of Peace
Wednesday the 21st of September was the United Nations International Day of Peace. On this day, around the world, tens of millions of people join in acts of peaceful solidarity. A small delegation of students from Phoenix went to the Hammersmith and Fulham event in Lyric Square organised to mark the occasion. There was music, there were speeches from the Mayor and other community leaders, and students were asked to write pledges for peace that were sent up on balloons released by Phoenix’s very own Aminata Koroma, the borough’s Youth Mayor. All the pupils who attended were a credit to the school, and their participation stands as symbol for a more peaceful and harmonious world.
