Schools from across Hyndburn came together to mark the United Nations International Day of Peace.
The Rotary Club of Accrington invited schools across the borough to participate in making pinwheels for peace, and then supplied the interested schools with kits for the pupils to construct and display.
Supported by the Rotary Club of Accrington, children from St John’s CE Primary School in Baxenden, St Mary’s RC Primary School in Clayton-le-Moors and Peel Park Primary School in Accrington all made Pinwheels for Peace.
The finished articles were displayed at special assemblies at which the Day of Peace was celebrated and ideas about peace were discussed.
The ‘pinwheel’ has been adopted as a symbol of peace, with many similar projects taking place around the world.
Judith Williams, headteacher at Peel Park Primary School, said: “We were delighted to welcome members of the Rotary group to school to highlight the International Day of Peace as it reflects our beliefs, values and ethos.
“It is vital for children to develop peace within and between each other.”
