PRLog - Oct. 9, 2012 - Pupils at Bedales Prep, Dunhurst campaigned for Peace on National Peace One Day (21 September) by lobbying MPs, celebrities and members of the Royal Family through letter-writing and producing songs celebrating the tenth anniversary of Peace One Day.

Pupils worked on a presentation to American President Barack Obama and sent a letter to the Princess Royal. They were delighted to receive a response from the Princess in which she thanked them for their letter and informed them that she was about to visit Zambia to see some of the charities she supports.

Some of the pupils interviewed members of the public in Petersfield to ask them if they had heard of Peace One Day. The vast majority had not, so the pupils took the opportunity to raise awareness of the day. They finished their celebration with a whole school photo of the school community holding posters of peace doves designed by the pupils.

Commenting on the day, Jane Grubb, Head of Dunhurst said, “Peace One day is an important annual global event that aims to halt conflict for one day so that medical help, vaccinations and food supplies can get to families in war torn areas. By participating in Peace One Day, our pupils discover more about the world and its political history. It opens their eyes to the plight of children in countries such as Libya and Afghanistan and empowers them to take action. It was very rewarding for the children to receive an acknowledgement from the Princess Royal and see a real impact resulting from their actions.”
