This page provides links to CAC student pages that reflect on a collaborative project with 3rd grade that was designed to mark Peace Day on September 21st 2007.


These were some of the questions students considered as they made their pages:

-what was the most significant or surprising thing you learnt about the dropping of the atomic bomb?
-what questions you are left with?
-how did the story of Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes make the topic relevant?
-what did you learn about resolving conflict in the world?
-how can we make the world safe from nuclear weapons?
-how did working together with an ES class move us towards a more peaceful community?
-how would you extend this project or interaction with the elementary students?
Include at least one visual - a photograph, an image, cartoon, drawing...
Include a peace quote.

These five points have been identified as ways to develop a culture of peace at CAC:
• Communicate and interact respectfully
• Seek peaceful solutions to conflict
• Engage in democratic, collaborative decision making
• Practice empathy, compassion and forgiveness
• Work to sustain our environment
