CIS students celebrate Peace Day

They built a huge Peace Wall and learned about the ongoing refugee crisis

On Wednesday September 21, students from Copenhagen International School celebrated the International Day of Peace.

In the primary school, pupils started the day with an assembly and afterwards enjoyed a morning filled with various grade-level activities on the topic of ‘peace’.

They also created and drew designs on large plastic blocks for a huge ‘Peace Wall’ that was built throughout the day.
