As a school, we celebrate the diversity of faiths, cultures and lifestyles, this has been further developed since our Peace Mala journey began back in 2012. We continue to enjoy our Peace Mala celebrations and were extremely proud to achieve the Peace Mala accreditation in July 2013 and re-accreditation in October 2016. We believe that being part of the Peace Mala community has allowed us to help aid our children in becoming better local and global citizens. We look forward to continuing our work for many, many years to come and look forward to the different opportunities our continued work will help us achieve.
Peace Mala Re-accreditation Ceremony 2016
This year our children have been working closely with St Martins Church in Wythenshawe. We were invited to St Martins by Rev’d Robyn Usher, to celebrate our Harvest Festival. The children and families of Newall Green Primary worked hard to collect donations of food which would then be donated to our friends at The Tree of Life centre for their community food bank.
Celebrating Harvest Festival at St Martins Church. Thank you for all your donations, were received by Heather from Wythenshawe Food Bank.
At Newall Green Primary School we aim for our pupils to become independent learners, motivated by their natural curiosity about the world in which they live in. We want them to enjoy life and be happy and aim to achieve this through the teaching of our 6 peace commitments:
· We love
· We are compassionate
· We respect
· We are patient
· We are tolerant
· We forgive.
We believe that our pupils have the right to learn in a safe environment and believe they should feel and be safe at all times. To enable this to happen we work together with all members of the school community, children, staff, parents/carers and governors to promote our peace mala Golden Rule;
‘To treat others as you would wish them to treat you!’
