Origami for Peace
According to an article in the Welwyn Hatfield Times, pupils from a variety of schools took part in the United Nations International Peace Day by making a thousand or so origami ‘peace’ cranes. Barbara Middleton, who is the president of the Brookmans Park Rotary Club, initiated the school events as her project in Landmark Education’s Self-Expression and Leadership Programme. The club donated the supplies and instructions to the schools.
Middleton said the event was success, saying the displays created “were fabulous and I was very inspired by them…in this day and age it is very heartening that children were trying to take the message on board.”
