Maria Fidelis Catholic School FCJ

Maria Fidelis Peace Ambassadors

Students from Years 8 and 10 started their training to become Peace Ambassadors.

The school is working with the Tim Parry and Johnathan Ball Peace Foundation on their leadership development programme to help students develop the skills needed to support other young people.

The students will explore issues, such as identity & belonging, prejudice and discrimination, conflict resolution and social action.  They will get to experience situations in which their assumptions are exposed and constructively challenged.

The Foundation was set up by the parents of Tim Parry who was 12 years old when he was killed by an IRA bomb that exploded in Warrington in 1993.  Johnathan Ball was also killed; he was 3.  Amongst other things, the Foundation provides education and trailing for young people to promote peace in their communities.
