The Peace Club is structured around a handful of interactions between the students and the Prajnya resource person. The activity that carries on through the academic year is the ‘What’s going on in the world’ bulletin board. Peace Club members are responsible for updating this ‘news board’ everyday, and ideally take individual and collective responsibility for it. For each day, they must post ‘good news’ about peace, ‘bad news’ about peace and then they have the liberty to post one thing of their choice–a thought for the day, a drawing or cartoon or photo, a poem.
The following photos illustrate this activity, and also give us an idea of how 11-year olds interpret this assignment.
