The Students’ Council at our school wanted to create a game related to the theme of ‘Peace and Harmony’ which was the theme of our annual exhibition this year. The students met regularly to discuss ideas for a game that could promote peace and make their peers better aware of various processes that help reduce conflict and establish peace. The Students’ Council also wanted to introduce the school to Computer Games that may lead students to better understanding of Global Conflicts, like Global Conflicts: Palestine and Global Conflicts: Child Soldiers. Gaming is fun but it may also be a first step to opening a window for Peace.

We in Malta are fortunate to have both geographical and historical features in our immediate environment. My school is on Margherita hill which was flattened and blocks built in the retrenchment close to Verdala Fort. All this is right ahead of us! The photo shows a particular historical feature at school built on purpose so that soldiers could refill the guns whilst another soldier was firing. We can actually see the links that exist between our geography and our history. As young people we need to support the protection of geographical and historical features. We need to understand how people in the past lived. Our country is really small but has a great history that we should all appreciate. We need to look right ahead of us to understand the full story that lies so close to us wherever we might be in Malta!

At school we are organizing an exhibition from 3rd April to 7th April 2017 on the theme ‘Peace and Harmony’. With our teacher of geography we wrote letters to children on the move. We wanted to support other children that are suffering from serious problems in their countries. These children are less fortunate than us but they are still happy and always with a smile on their face. This is the loveliest thing that we found about these children who are passing from mountains of problems in their lives!
