From August 5-9, students celebrated Peace Week with a range of activities including writing messages of gratitude on paper doves, chalk drawings about peace, Spoken Word poetry and a poster/poem competition.
More than 600 doves – with anonymous messages of gratitude to either staff or students – have been collected by Peer Mediators who will distribute them to recipients today and on Monday.
This year, Secondary Schools Peace Week saw secondary schools all around New Zealand undertake activities around the theme of Peace and Technology. Peer Mediators at MAGS encouraged students to put down their devices, talk to one another face-to-face and be in the present moment.
