Peace Week celebrates Aotearoa New Zealand - 30 Years Nuclear Free. 

About Schools’ Peace Week
The Peace Foundation New Zealand, started Schools' Peace Week in 2000, as our contribution to the United Nations Decade of the Child, to educate people of the consequences of nuclear war and to campaign for a world of nuclear weapons. The date of Schools’ Peace Week commemorates Hiroshima Day on 6 August, and Nagasaki Day on 9 August. The event has become increasingly popular in New Zealand and abroad each year and students are engaged in various activities, which promote peaceful practices in our schools and communities.  By making small changes we are able to empower people to create a safe world based on justice and human rights as well as to build a sustainable environment and peaceful relationships. This year Schools' Peace Week is being held from Monday 7th August to Friday 11th August. The theme for 2017 is “Nuclear Free”.

Here are some Quick Writes that we did after finding out what happened at Hiroshima and Nagasaki:

The only reason that the USA dropped the atomic bomb was because the Japanese refused to surrender. The people from the USA dropped the first bomb was when the Japanese first refused to surrender and the bomb was dropped Hiroshima and the emperor still refused to surrender and three days later another bomb was dropped in Nagasaki and the emperor finally surrendered. By Nela

We learn from history! As you now it is peace week and today we are learning about atomic bombs. I feel sad that they did this and it was not a very nice thing they did. I would hate to be in their shoes. I wish I could of stopped it. why did they need to bomb that country, just because the emperor would not give up and surrender. By Isabel

During world war 2, 2 bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The bomb that hit Hiroshima was called “little boy” and the bomb that hit Nagasaki was called “fat man”. Tens of thousands of people were killed by the bombs. The 2 bombs were dropped by America. The the bomb that hit Nagasaki was dropped on the 9th of Aug 1945 and the bomb that hit Hiroshima was dropped on the 6th of Aug 1945. The bombs were only dropped a few days apart. By Arabella
