Teach Peace: Second Edition

Building on the remarkable success of the first edition, the Peace Education Network are delighted to present the second edition of Teach Peace revised and updated for 2016.

In Teach Peace you will find ten assemblies, follow-up activities, resources, prayers, and reflections on peace and peacemaking for 5-12 year olds.

Whether we are Remembering for Peace [11 November], flying a kite for Nao Roz [21 March], or reflecting on the witness of Austrian peacemaker Franz Jägerstätter [21 May] the school year is full of opportunities to use this pack. Teach Peace will help ensure peace is a key theme in our children’s education and help you to celebrate peace and peacemakers in your school.

The entire resource is free to download below. Hard copies of Teach Peace are available from the Peace Education Network for £5. Contact us
