Limavady Schools Celebrate Peace

1 Mins read

Schools throughout the Limavady area have been participating in a fantastic creative arts project to celebrate peace, supported by Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council.

Part of the national Peace Pledges project initiated by Reverend David Latimer, the schools are creating their very own collaborative peace flag bunting which will be permanently displayed at the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre, Limavady. Reverend Latimer has inspired schools across Northern Ireland to write their own unique pledge to peace and encouraged many local councils to develop the project by helping the schools create a lasting artwork illustrating their pledges.

Mayor of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council, Alderman Maura Hickey, stated, “We are delighted that pupils from schools throughout our Council area and beyond are engaging in this project, devising their own pledges for peace and respect between local citizens of all backgrounds.

“We have been following Reverend Latimer’s exciting initiative and are happy to support this work through our Good Relations Programme this year. We cannot underestimate the important role that young people have to play in helping to build a more peaceful future here.”

Desima Connolly, Arts & Cultural Officer and Centre Manager at Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre added, “It has been a pleasure to involve all twenty four of the local schools in this wonderful project in partnership with Good Relations and we are looking forward to exhibiting the stunning, colourful peace flags which are testimony to our young people’s dedication to a peaceful future.”

The Peace Flags will be available to view at the Roe Valley Arts & Cultural Centre from early July. For further information on the project, contact 028 777 60650 or visit www.roevalleyarts.com.
