The latest edition of Justpeace – our members’ newsletter – has been sent out to members and supporters today. This edition is focussed on peace education and includes articles by Ben Griffin of Veterans for Peace UK, and John Harding, Head of RE at St Bede’s school in Lytham.
The newsletter also includes a word of thanks to Chris Gabbett, principal of Trinity Catholic School in Leamington Spa, who walked the The Camino Inglés during the summer to raise money for the Christian Peace Education fund. There is still time to support Chris’s fundraising efforts.
A particular concern of this newsletter is how members can support, encourage, and promote Pax Christi’s peace education work in schools and with young people. A leaflet enclosed with the mailing showcases Pax Christi’s work with schools and explores how members can champion this work in their local area.
