Tizz Time

We are working with the Violence Reduction Unit on a Community Project. The preschool children have had sessions on protective behaviours. Our school community has worked together to make hands to hug the building during the 10 days of peace. There will be hands in other places too.

There are lots of activities happening to promote peace and community.

Look out for your hands 🙂
