We’ve had a wonderful morning in the Peace Garden at Peace Mala HQ, unveiling some beautiful Peace Mala artwork created by Terrace Road Primary, Swansea, and local artist Katie Kneath. Penllergaer Primary School in Swansea, Hafod Primary School in Swansea, and Central Primary School in Port Talbot, also joined us. Penllergaer Primary performed two brilliant songs for us, and children from the other schools joined in.
Many thanks also to the Peter Black, Lord Mayor of the City & County of Swansea, Sally Goldstone, High Sheriff of West Glamorgan, for unveiling the artwork. Thanks also to the High Sheriff who cut our delicious rainbow cake. We also thanks Cllr John Warman Deputy Mayor of Neath Port Talbot, and Mrs Lesley Warman, Deputy Mayoress of Neath Port Talbot; local Morriston Cllr Andrea Lewis, and PCO Kate Hopkins for joining us.
We luckily managed to avoid the rain for most of our event, with it arriving just in time for the cake! The children also enjoyed some cupcakes – topped with fizzy rainbow sweets.
We were so impressed with the artwork when we visited Terrace Road Primary for their Bronze Award Accreditation in March that we ordered a copy of it. The beautiful artwork now stands proudly in our Peace Mala Garden. Artist Katie Kneath explained that the pupils of Terrace Road Primary produced over 180 images for the artwork, which took a week to complete. It is stunning. Well done to all the pupils and to Katie.
