Barking & Dagenham pupils spell for peace

Barking & Dagenham pupils lined up to spell out ‘Peace Week’ at Daggers stadium

SCHOOL children marked London Week of Peace at Dagenham and Redbridge Football Club last week.

The 99 pupils from Eastbrook Comprehensive School, Dagenham, lined up in the new stand of the stadium to spell out the words “Peace Week.”

The theme of this year’s London Week of Peace is ‘Giving Back’ and focuses on individuals who contribute selflessly to their communities.

Peace Week in Barking and Dagenham was launched at Eastbury Comprehensive School, Barking, on September 20, where representatives from the council, schools, police and community groups released 17 white doves – one for every ward in the borough.
