The Federation were pleased to be invited by the town council to take part in celebrations to mark World Peace day in September.
Two children from Year 2 were chosen to represent the federation and we went to Dereham for a special ceremony in the market place. The Mayor spoke, as did Rev Sally Theakston, about peace and why we all need to work towards peace in our lives and in the world.
Mr Macdonald from Northgate had made a planter and each school put their plant into the planter, which was then put on the war memorial.
We were very pleased to be part of such an important ceremony.
@NgateCouncil @EDP24 @daviddomoney To commemorate International Day of Peace. Children from Dereham Community Schools attended a service in town. @NgateDereham We are proud our planter, with peace plants placed by the children is in pride of place, at Dereham War Memorial. 🌿 pic.twitter.com/ZIxgZLtYhN
