On Friday, 22 September 2017, the LIS Secondary School community celebrated International Peace Day. Special thanks to Mr. Chilton, our Year Level Coordinators, Homeroom Teachers, workshop leaders, and Kimbo student leaders for coordinating a day full of reflection, fun, and action.
The day began with all secondary students and teachers gathering in the gym to hear a special presentation by Dr. Pier Paulo Balladelli, the UN Representative for Angola. Following this, everyone moved to the field to take the annual Peace Day photo. Afterwards, Year 7 students left campus to visit FÁBRICA DE SABÃO, a local organisation for creative social change, while the rest of the students participated in a variety of activities ranging slam poetry to silent skits and everything else in between!
Year 12 and 13 student participated in a special all-day workshop that focused on conflict resolution through the use of forum acting. Led by drama teacher, Mr. Colley, our DP students shared their experience with Year 4 to 6 students from the primary school, before demonstrating their talents in front of secondary school students.
As you can see from the photo and video below, a fun and thoughtful day was had by all.
