For the past four years, Rotarian Anna Jurak, Peace Committee Chair of the Rotary Club of Windsor Roseland has hosted a “Peace School” designation program in partnership with local school boards in Essex County.
To designate schools annually as Peace Schools. Schools that achieve an 80% designation on the self-assessment questionnaire are designated as Peace Schools. The top 4 schools receive a “Peace Pole to erect in their school yard and a ceremony to celebrate their achievements.
The Peace Schools receive a Peace Pole Ceremony at the school and an all inclusive peace party, where each student is gifted a jelly bracelet with the inscription, May Peace Prevail On Earth.
The 4-sided Peace Pole is inscribed with the words “May Peace Prevail On Earth” in English, French and two languages of choice by the schools that reflect their multicultural make-up of the school population.
