Pupils from Alexandra Park Junior School celebrated their Peace Week with a trip to the Mayor’s Parlour.


The children attended the raising of the Peace Flag at the Oldham Civic Centre before retiring to meet the Worshipful Mayor of Oldham Cllr Javid Iqbal in his parlour. The group got to ask him questions about what was happening in Oldham as well as discuss fundraising ideas for the Mayor’s Fundraiser.


PHSE Co-ordinator, Samantha Nicholson Hickling, said: “They felt so privileged to be invited and really enjoyed the event. The Mayor even gave the children some gifts.”


The school held a Peace Week in the run-up to International Day of Peace where they created a peace wall by each decorating their own brick, made peace paperchains and welcomed Laura Topper from Ommaysing Me who teaches workshops around the UK called Peace Begins with Me.
