There will be learners selected to be Peace Buddies in all the schools. Their role will be to provide a non-violent presence at the school and to introduce systems and ideas to maintain a non-violent climate at the school. Teachers from each school involved will be trained in peace education and will be able to teach the values of non-violence across the curriculum. The teachers and learners together, will set up peace clubs at their school to engage learners in creative and non-violent activities and outings, to broaden their understanding of non-violence and to occupy their free time in constructive ways. Material on non-violent education will have been developed during the year by the teachers, learners, the Western Cape Education Department and the Quaker Peace Centre. Teachers will be trained to use this material in their classrooms. The progress in schools will be monitored at 2 reunion functions held during the year.More about The Non-Violent Schools Campaign ...
