SCHOOL DAY OF NON-VIOLENCE AND PEACE, 30th JANUARY
Next week, we celebrate the School Day of Non-violence and Peace (30th January). We will have different activities (including an outdoor one in which some students will read texts about peace and some pigeons will be released) aimed at developing a peaceful behavior among our students.
The goal of this day is to point out the importance of education in and for tolerance, solidarity, respect for human rights, non violence and peace. And the importance of schools as instruments of peace and understanding between people of different formation, race, culture and religion. Likewise, January 30 is the anniversary of the death of the spiritual and national Indian leader, Mahatma Gandhi, murdered by a Buddhist fanatic.
