Visitors from Neve Shalom Wahat al-Salam, Israel

By January 12, 2017Uncategorized

On Thursday 20th and Friday 21st Carmella Ferber (Headteacher) and Raida aiashe-khatib (3rd Grade Teacher) visited Gallions. The visit was instigated by John Ward who visited Neve Shalom Wahat al Salam in May 2016. Our visitors experienced a mixture of music, P4C (Philosophy for Children) and classroom teaching. They also observed musicianship for Years 3 and 4, a selection of strings lessons. On the Friday we had our half term concert, before which Carmella and Raida led a dove decorating workshop with R&B class (Year 3). The creations were taken back to the School for Peace and given to pupils in Raida’s class (also Year 3).  We would like to nurture our relationship with the School for Peace and are planning a Skype call between R&B class and Raida’s class in Israel.
