Peace Walk 2017
Saturday 23rd September 2017
We had the chance to demonstrate our values to a huge audience today when we participated in the annual Luton Peace Walk! The event is a marvellous occasion and brings together Luton's diverse community who walk together to local religious buildings, spreading love and peace on the way.
This year, we started off at High Town Methodist Church where we helped to open the 'Peace Garden', which featured lots of 'peace poles' that had been decorated by local community groups/schools (including some of our own). We then set of to Hope Church where we heard all about the great work they're doing in the town centre area.
We then moved onto Jamia Mosque in Bury Park, where some of our pupils read out peace poems to a captive audience of over 100 people (very brave!). From here, we made the short journey to the Guru Nanak Gurdwara where we learnt lots about Sikhism.
All the stops along the way gave the children a fascinating insight into how different cultures and faiths live their lives, but ultimately how, as people, we all share the common value of peace.
It was a wonderful day for all involved and was one we were proud to be part of.
