"Just because it isn't happening here doesn't mean it isn't happening" - Peace Day

On 30th January we celebrated Peace Day at school. In Year 6 we watched two videos and discussed about them. 
The first video was about a year in a girl's life and how her life was changed by war. It was filmed by Save the Children organization to make us aware of the big number of children that are suffering from the effects of war in our world.
