It’s Peace Week at the high school. Ensworth High School will be participating through the Peace Exchange in one to one exchanges between over 10,000 American students and a corresponding number of students in other nations. The Peace Exchange is an international exchange of art and messages of peace between students throughout the world.
During Peace Week, students will explore what “peace” means to them, work to understand and express personal ideas of peace, consider what it means to create peace within their community and learn to communicate in a way that positively influences the lives of others.
To kick-off Peace Week the students got a chance to hear from Phyllis Hildreth, an Ensworth parent and great scholar of conflict management among many other things. She discussed conflict management and how we obtain peace through properly managing our conflicts. She also discussed the importance of art as an outlet to rid any built up feelings of resentment and conflict that we hold on to that keep us from obtaining peace.
