On Wednesday 21st September, Year 12 Religious Studies students were delighted to attend the ‘Amazing the Space’ Peace event at the Eikon Exhibition Centre at the Maze. Here they were able to hear from different speakers on the subject of world peace, including Yasmin Kayali from Aleppo in Syria, who runs a charity for refugees; Rev David Latimer, the founder of the event; and Martin McGuinness, Deputy First Minister.

 

 

This was the culmination of a lot of work for the students as they produced a peace pledge for our school which Jessica and Rachel recorded for the event. The pupils really enjoyed the experience of meeting lots of different pupils from other schools and hearing from the different speakers.
