Success with Avonbourne College


PEACEJAM

Bournemouth East Cliff appear to have achieved a major success with Avonbourne College over the launch of the PeaceJam programme across the school’s four academics judging by the feedback from four students who attended this year’s PeaceJam Conference in Winchester.

It all started in November last year when Brian Pain, an ex-headmaster involved in the UK PeaceJam organisation did a presentation at the club. Head teachers from several local schools were invited including the Executive Head of the Avonbourne Trust. Avonbourne immediately took the whole essence of the PeaceJam movement on board and after a series of meetings with the school including Caroline Millman, PeaceJam UK Chairperson, the club agreed to sponsor six students on the Winchester Conference led by Nobel Peace Laureate Rigoberta Menchu Tum. The school are actively encouraging Acts of Peace among students with the aim of achieving One Million acts towards PeaceJam’s international target of One Billion. A barometer is being set up in School Reception to record these as well as a large poster with images of the Peace Laureates and the Rotary logo outside the school gates as a reminder.

The four students, Jordan, Cavell, Grant & Donna, pictured with Assistant Head Kathryn Loughnan, Club President Andrew Dawson and ADG Mike Dwyer, have just visited the club and gave us an excellent account of what PeaceJam means to them and their personal experiences at the Conference.
