Kia Ora Koutou ... Terms one and two have been busy for our Cool Schools, LtPM and Kia Tau te Rangimārie peace education programmes. Thank you to our national team of consultants who have successfully trained hundreds of students and teachers during this period. Thank you to the schools who have embraced the trainings and are committed to Christina Barruel implementing our programmes effectively, to help create a school culture where the health and wellbeing of staff and students is enhanced. On the topic of health and wellbeing, a relevant resource that has recently been released to schools nationwide from the Ministry of Education is Relationship Education Programmes: Guide for Schools. These guidelines really support Cool Schools, LtPM and Kia Tau te Rangimārie as programmes that contribute to social and emotional learning (SEL) for students. SEL is one of the three areas of learning in relationship education. I wish to acknowledge my colleague, Dr Gillian Tasker, for the wonderful effort she has done in writing the initial report. For more information and to access the guidelines, go to: Pink Shirt Day 2014 Reflecting on Pink Shirt Day held on Friday 22nd May, I am pleased to see how this campaign is gathering momentum, not only in New Zealand schools but also in workplace environments. Pink Shirt Day is an annual event celebrated in many countries around the world. It focuses on encouraging people to work together to prevent or stop bullying by celebrating people’s differences and promoting positive relationships. I wish to congratulate my colleagues at The Mental Health Foundation for the wonderful job they did of providing schools with resources, an informative website and Facebook page: If your school got involved with PSD, please do send a selection of photos to The Mental Health Foundation so that they can enjoy the results of all their hard work. I was very proud of Chikita Kodikal, one of The Peace Foundation interns, who gave an informative presentation during Pink Shirt Day to staff from both The Peace Foundation and The Problem Gambling Foundation. Her topic was: “The Psychology of Bullying”. Chikita has her own story to tell and wove this skilfully into the research she did on the topic. For more information, visit Chikita’s website: Effective bullying prevention involves the whole school community staff, students, parents and whanau. It means having well-planned responses in place for when bullying does occur. - Mike Williams Vice President of the Secondary Schools Teachers’ Union.

Something to consider… Has your school got a policy on ‘bullying’? Do your students, teachers and parents have a clear understanding of what ‘bullying’ is? This should be part of your school policy. Peer mediators also need to know that ‘bullying’ is not behavior they

deal with. A helpful resource from the Ministry of Education sent to all New Zealand schools in June 2014 and updated in May 2015 is Bullying prevention and response: A Guide for Schools: No2Bullying Conference Good news! I have been selected to be a presenter at the No2Bullying Conference 2015 being held on the Gold Coast of Australia at the end of June. My topic is: Promoting Health and Well-being through Relationship Education: An introduction to the social skills taught in Cool Schools and LtPM. The purpose of my presenation is to inform participants about how the skills we teach in our national school programmes help students and teachers to nurture positive relationships with others, especially when they find themselves in conflict. “Conflict is a part of everyday life; it is how we deal with it that makes the difference.” For more information on the conference, you can visit:

This year’s symposium promises to be better and bigger than ever before. If you would like a registration form, please email: Host a School Peace Mufti Day The Peace Mufti Day is a nationwide appeal for funding support in celebration of the 40th Anniversary of The Peace Foundation. As our theme this year is ‘Collaboration4Peace’, we invite all schools, businesses, groups or organisations to host a Mufti Day. The Peace Foundation needs your support. Host a Peace Mufti Day and help raise funds to have more schools and families benefit from peace education. For more information and to register for this event please go to: Cool Schools Information Days The national team of consultants are facilitating

Cool Schools Information Days (CSID) around the country in schools that have agreed to host the event for their region. The advantage for the host school is that they can send two staff members to the workshop free of charge. The purpose of this workshop is to provide valuable information and ‘skill tasters’ for primary school management, teachers and Cool Schools Coordinator’s who need exposure to the updated programme concepts and resources. It is also an opportunity for schools who are not implementing the programme to get some idea of the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’. At the conclusion of a CSID, a school can book a full or revisit training with the regional consultant. In most cases, funding can be provided for this training by The Peace Foundation. To see information about up and coming CSID’s, look on the website: > Peace Education > School Programmes > Cool Schools > Workshops

Research Project: Capturing the Stories of Past Peer Mediators The Peace Foundation has been granted a research voucher from the Research and Enterprise Department at Auckland Unitec. The funds will be used to document the stories of past peer mediators, investigating how the secondary school peer mediation training and the role of peer mediator at school, has influenced young lives. Daniel Pegado, a past peer mediator from Mount Roskill Grammar School already has his story uploaded on YouTube: com/watch?v=gQCSMMtWSYc Thank you to John Stansfield, Dr Helen Connor and Shane Stuart from Unitec for your support in launching this exciting project. Thanks also to Donna Hourigan-Johnston, Guidance Counsellor from Mount Roskill Grammar School, for your encouragement and determination in making this project a happening thing! Latest Additions to The Peace Education Team I would like to take this opportunity to welcome our two latest members to the peace education team: Carol Smith (Te Rarawa), our newly appointed part time programme coordinator for Kia Tau te Rangimārie and, Chris Siver, our part time Youth Programme Coordinator who is taking the place of Lucy Stewart while she is on maternity leave. (We wish Lucy all the best in her new role as ‘Mum’ to a bonny, baby boy). Carol comes from an Early Childhood teaching background and is a skilled facilitator of te reo Māori me ona tikanga. She is also helping to strengthen the bicultural practice of The Peace Foundation. Chris is a recent Masters graduate in political science and philosophy and is passionate about social justice and indigenous rights. Both Carol and Chris have a great deal of expertise they can offer to our peace education programmes. Finally, I would like to thank our funders and partners for their valuable support to The Peace Foundation and our peace education programmes. Special thanks to The Ministry of Health, the Lottery Grants Board, the Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board, the Puketāpapa Local Board, The Mental Health Foundation, members from LEADR & IAMA and Janine Edge from TalkingWorks.

Positive Message Bombing at Waitakere College

School News

By Sandra van Eden (LtPM Programme Coordinator) This was the best promotional activity our Peer Mediation team has ever done. Three years ago one of our Mediators spontaneously filled one wall of our mediation room with positive messages. They were about the value of now, of valuing yourself and others and of the small things in life, which are really the great things in life. Last year another of our Mediators suggested we put messages like this all over the school. We printed them on brightly coloured paper and stuck them up with one piece of sellotape in places where they could be easily removed. Staff and students were invited to choose one they particularly liked and take it down to keep, and at the end of the day we took down any remaining messages so they did not create a rubbish issue. It was great to do something positive and proactive, giving the school community "warm fuzzies" on a cold winter's day. Compared to some of the other promotional activities we have tried, this was the easiest and least time consuming. Best of all we know it touched the whole school, not just those who might benefit from mediation. We know this as we were told the messages generated conversations between

students/students, staff/students and even staff/staff. Also, some staff took some of the messages and taped them up in their classrooms. We had very positive feedback and even repeated the exercise at the request of our Principal. Our messages are reproduced in the purple box (on the left) in size 12 but we printed them larger, putting 4 on one page so using an A6 format. You are very welcome to use our messages, they are all quotes from other people and places. However, as the mediators had great fun finding the quotes you may wish to do that instead. We found some of the most inspirational quotes on the back of trucks, especially the dark blue Mainfreight trucks. We used half the messages the first time and the other half the second time - so there was no repetition, and each time we used 20 messages reproduced 10 times so a total of 200 messages. There are 1,400 students at Waitakere College and there weren’t many to pull down at the end of the day so we think we got the total number of messages about right for the size of the school.

Waitakere College

What is Mediation? Mediation aims for a win/win solution agreed on by both sides. Participation is voluntary, nobody can force you to attend. All mediations are strictly confidential.

Harassment Harassment is forcing unwanted attention on another person verbally, physically or sexually in person or by phone/ text / online. It includes; Bullying, mocking, teasing, insults, put-downs and spreading rumours. Racial harassment – hassling someone because of their race, colour, culture or religion. Sexual harassment – giving someone unwanted and inappropriate sexual attention, or harassing them about their sexual orientation or gender (male/female). Intimidation or threatening someone to make them feel powerless or uncomfortable, even if the threat isn’t carried out. Doing any of these things on behalf of someone else is also harassment. Harassment is abuse. It is NOT the Waitakere Way. No-one at this College has to put up with it.

We can help you with; Sorting issues Solving problems Class disputes Friendship conflicts Disagreements Threatened violence Harassment Disputes

You can approach a Teacher, Dean, House Leader, Counsellor or Peer Mediator for help.

Every year, as part of promoting the peer mediation service our mediators create a poster. It's a different colour each year and last year it was purple to match the badges. We have enough copies printed so that there is one for every classroom and one for each senior manager's, dean's, nurses' office, the student centre, etc. It is always placed on the wall next to a copy of our school harassment policy. The purpose of the purple poster is to promote the service, show the faces of the mediators so students with an issue know who to look out for and to give other information about the service such as where and when mediations can take place. The poster and the pamphlet are the main ways we promote the service. In addition we do assembly presentations and visit each Year 9 tutor class. The message bombing wasn't so much promotional as wanting to give something positive to the school community.

Peer Mediators are senior students with special training to help you solve problems in peaceful, non-violent ways. Look for their poster in your classroom. During interval or lunch time you can approach a Mediator directly and ask for help or you can go to the Peer Mediation Room in C Block where there will be Mediators to help you. This service is confidential and can only proceed if everyone involved in the dispute is willing to participate.

Peer Mediation at Pukekohe High School By Renee Twidle (Year 13 Senior Peer Mediator) We as peer mediators have taken it upon ourselves, with the assistance of student support to initiate change within our school. The aim for peer mediators is for students to help students. We do this by helping them in coming to terms with the situation at hand and guiding them to come to their own resolution. At Pukekohe High we identify the peer mediators within our school by a badge and a coloured ribbon. The mediators are situated within different areas of the school making us approachable by anyone that feels the need to express conflicts that they may be facing. In order for us to provide this support for students, we have attended a training course run by “The Peace Foundation” as well as having our own training days with one of our guidance counsellors Mr Campbell. We also have frequent meetings every

fortnight to discuss ways to promote ourselves and events that we could run. We would like and are aiming to create a whole school event for Peace week which we are currently in the planning process for. As far as the awareness around school goes, peer mediation is becoming increasingly popular because it not only provides a form of comfort as the student are more able to understand the situation but it also prevents dean, or parent involvement to a certain extent. Teachers have said that this form of conflict solving creates a calming effect on the students, as they are less anxious with talking about the issues they face to students who make them feel comfortable. Not only does it impact the students being helped, but those that undergo training for peer mediation as we are taught to become receptive to a broader and more

understanding perception on issues and people themselves. Peer mediation enables students to create a positive difference within the school, and as a peer mediator ourselves we recommend those from others schools to jump on the bandwagon to help make a change as well.

Cool Schools at Willow Park School By Nicole Pirovich (Cool Schools Coordinator)

Recently, Willow Park School were lucky enough to have Christina Barruel visit for a recap with both students and teachers. The peer mediators involved were excited and confident having worked for most of the day with Christina. The session affirmed what they were doing and made myself and Christina question if all staff were aware how they could support the peer mediators. After further discussion, it was clear that teachers needed to have

4 MediationWORKS

a complete understanding of what peer mediator’s roles were so that they were able to support them during break times. That afternoon, Christina held a staff meeting where we were given opportunities to discuss the kind of behaviour they we were concerned about. This was followed by positive ideas for changing those behaviours, using the Cool School’s programme. The staff love the new resource provided by Cool Schools

and came away from the staff meeting with ways to move forward with the programme and understanding how peer mediators can be supported. Today classes are trialing conflict resolution lessons and already an impact has been made. The peer mediators of the school are finding less and less conflicts to help sort out. We are now having to move them into doing positive reinforcement within the school to support the classroom lessons. But this wasn’t the most exciting part yet! It came to my attention that one of the peer mediators has been using their skills at home to help resolve minor conflicts between their siblings and even parents! To me, this is the highlight of the whole programme! When students start to figure out that these skills can be used in all settings of their life, then we really do have it made! 2015WINTERedition

Youth Peace Ambassadors training at Edgewater College and De la Salle College By Lucy Stewart (Youth Programme Coordinator) and Ymke Kootstra (Intern) With thanks to funding from the Ministry of Youth Development, The Peace Foundation was able to conduct two very successful ‘Youth Peace Ambassador’ training programmes at Edgewater College and Delasalle College during term one and two this year. The rationale behind the project was to build the capacity of youth to be their own leaders and role models in their schools and communities, and to help them promote peace and peaceful conflict resolution skills within. The Peace Foundation targeted areas and schools that were multi-cultural and diverse, as well as areas that have not always been known for their peaceful nature. The training sessions were held over three days and were designed to be ‘youth-led’, in that the students participating really drove the agenda and the programme content. This was possible in the following ways: firstly, the students identified areas of conflict in their families, schools and communities that they wanted to address. Secondly, after being presented with a range of ‘peaceful conflict resolution skills’, the students identified which ones they believed would be of benefit to them and that they would like to learn. And thirdly, at the end of the training session the students brainstormed how they could take the new skills they had learned into their homes, schools and communities to promote peaceful solutons to conflict and to make a difference. They highlighted


various projects and initiatives that they could get involved in which would help to spread a culture of peace. The training sessions were also facilitated by one of The Peace Foundations young interns; Ymke Kootstra (24), who is a Psychology student from the Netherlands. Under the experienced guidance of Christina Barruel, the Head of Peace Education at The Peace Foundation, Ymke was able to design the training format, the skills taught and was also the main facilitator at the sessions, assisted by other Peace Foundation team members. Having the sessions youth-led was successful for a number of reasons. Firstly, the students participating built up a great rapport with Ymke and were able to relate to her and communicate openly and with shared understanding. Secondly,

Ymke’s skills as a trainer and facilitator were greatly enhanced by the experience and she has gained the confidence to lead other trainings. Some comments from the students who participated in the trainings: Year 9 student Briana Valgre says the training has helped her in several areas. "It will definitely help me at home with my sisters and parents. If I get into an argument with them I will not just walk away but I will know how to solve it more constructively," she says. Year 9 student Hayley Gatward says the training made her think a lot about how people act in certain situations. "It teaches you how to deal with your emotions and trains you to be someone that others can trust and speak to," she says.

Family Programme

Communication – understanding your intention By Virin Gomber, Family Programme Manager When looking to enhance and strengthen our family relationships, we need to value the 3 C’s – Change, Commitment and Consistency. We need to be prepared to make the change we desire, and then commit to achieving it, followed by consistency in what we decide to do to make that change. Now, there’s another ‘C’ that connects all these values and has a huge influence on how things turn out for us. It’s the ‘C’ of Communication. While the word ‘communication’ is thrown around quite liberally in our everyday life and at the workplace, and its importance is consistently emphasised, do we really understand the basics of this word? We all know that communication is more than just exchange of words or chunks of information and that its success depends hugely on the method of delivery. However, we also need to understand another basic – the intention behind our communication. The intention with which we begin a conversation or a discussion affects the method of its delivery. It defines the ‘Why’ of our communication, the purpose of what we want to communicate. The three key components of communication that we keep hearing aboutbody language (visual), Tone of voice (auditory) and Words – are crucial in the ‘delivery’ part of communication. But, our communication process starts well before our delivery. It starts in our own mind. How we begin this process in our mind determines how we deliver it, and

eventually the outcome. Since communication is an integral part of our life (almost up there with oxygen or maybe food!) and now that we understand the vital role our mindset plays in identifying our intention behind our communication, we know what to do to be a successful communicator in most situations including when we need to be spontaneous. It’s to sculpt our mind towards a state of perpetual preparedness to deal with any small or big communication challenge and to make it a partner in our communication strategy, with ourselves and others. This approach is bound to lead to effective and desired outcomes in our communication efforts and have a powerful effect on our relationships. With all the skills provided at the Peaceful Family Communication course, most participants are able to start making these little changes in their everyday communication and develop a mindset of understanding the ‘intention’ while empowering themselves to continually move towards more peaceful family relationships. In the past year, almost 125 participants

have directly benefitted from this course in various parts of Auckland, including to SWIS (Social Workers in Schools) in Otahuhu, and parents in Pakuranga, Te Waipuna Puawai (Ellerslie), Torbay School, St Heliers Community Centre and Mt Roskill Grammar School. The impact of these skills not only reflects in the participants’ communication with their family and friends, it has a ripple effect on the lives of the people they communicate with. Our aim is to offer this programme to an increasing number of school staff, social workers, community organisations and anyone keen to improve their family relationships. It all just starts with a chat with us about your communication requirements, and we will take it from there. To organise the Peaceful Family Communication course for your school and parent network, please contact: Virin Gomber Family Programme Manager

Celebrating Pink Shirt Day By Chikita Kodikal - Intern at The Peace Foundation On Friday 22nd May, The Peace Foundation held a Pink Shirt Day Celebration where everyone who attended dressed in Pink to show their support and raise awareness about bullying. Pink Shirt Day NZ (PSD NZ) is an event organized by The Mental Health Foundation that aims to raise awareness about bullying in schools and workplaces across New Zealand by celebrating people’s differences and promoting positive relationship building. It is a day where schools and work places, throughout the country, stand together and speak up against bullying. I felt honoured to be invited by Christina Barruel, Head of Peace Education at The

Chikita delivering her presentation on 'The Psychology of Bullying and The Pink Shirt Day Initiative' at The Problem Gambling Foundation.

Peace Foundation to give a presentation titled, “Psychology of Bullying and The Pink Shirt Day Initiative.” In this presentation, I wove my personal experiences with bullying in school with research on Social Dynamics and Culture, Brain Development, Mental Health and Social Emotional Learning (SEL). Following this presentation, I facilitated a brief discussion revolving around student wellbeing, student learning and bullying, after which everyone was encouraged to indulge in some very tasty treats. It has been two years now that I have been a part of the Pink Shirt Day Initiative. It feels great to be able to contribute to an initiative that I feel incredibly passionate about. Just a week prior to this talk, I was invited by Dr Helene Connor, Senior Lecturer and Programme Leader at Unitec to speak on the same topic in front of a bunch of first year students studying Social Practice. It is incredibly empowering (and a little nerve-wrecking) to be able to share my experience with bullying in front of individuals from all walks of life in a way that will, hopefully, motivate and inspire them to do things, such as to being compassionate towards themselves, differently. The reality of the matter is that ‘we cannot practice compassion with others if do not treat ourselves kindly.’


I would like to give a special thanks to Karina Abadia, reporter for Central Leader, for covering this event.

Navigating and Building Positive Relationships - Diocesan School Leadership Programme - Conflict Resolution Workshop for Year 9 Students By Jemima Po (Year 9 Leadership Day participant) In Term 2, Year 9 had a Leadership Day that built on our term’s focus being ‘Interpersonal Acceptance’. The Leadership Day was mainly focused around conflict resolution and building positive relationships. The Peace Foundation came in to help organise workshops and presentations throughout the day that taught us many skills to help us with our focus. During the first part of the morning, Christina Barruel, from The Peace Foundation, taught us about the different response options to conflict. I found this particularly interesting, learning about the different ways people responded through an analogy of an animal. For example, shark - having an inability to accept other people’s wants and opinions, teddy bear- letting everybody get their way and not able to express their own wants. I found it helpful to be able to pick out specific conflict response characteristics in an animal that we identified with ourselves, as this meant we were more aware of our


tendencies and could change those that might help us deal with conflict more constructively. The third workshop of the day was on rapport building facilitated by Lisa Gibson also representing The Peace Foundation. Rapport is a feeling of being in-tune or comfortable. During the workshop, we learnt that we could create rapport by matching voice (tone, speed, volume and pitch), posture and eye movement. By adopting the same position as other people, it makes you feel more at ease with each other. I can apply these skills I have learnt about rapport in different situations, especially while resolving conflict or comforting a friend. After lunch, we all gathered in the hall to discuss the ‘ice cream’ model. The ice-cream model is a tool that helps solve conflicts constructively through creating a win/win situation. The first step is defining the problem. This can be done by effectively listening to the different points of views on the problem. The next step is to explore the problem using effective communication (asking effective questions, using I statements, building rapport and using active listening). The last step of the ice cream tool is to generate a solution and reach an agreement. The skills I have gained today, I will be able to apply not only in school, but in my family and social life as well. For example, if a friend at school was upset, we could use some of our new skills to help them. We can empower them to

resolve their own problems by asking effective questions, as well as showing empathy for them and building rapport. Another example is that conflict is fairly common among siblings and parents; we need to be able to resolve it so that no relationship is damaged. I have learnt that having strong communication skills is key to a positive relationships and effectively resolving conflict. In conclusion, I thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt many skills, which I will be able to apply in everyday situations, whether in school or out of school. The Peace Foundation did a brilliant job at helping us throughout the day, giving us many valuable tips and skills. By developing effective communication skills, we can enjoy ourselves more around friends and family, as we will be able to effectively resolve any conflict that may arise, achieving our overall goal of the year being “Enjoying the Dio Journey”.

Peace Week 2015

Collaboration4Peace – Schools’ Peace Week 2015 Schools’ Peace Week is back! The Peace Foundation invites every student to be a Changemaker for Peace – a Peacemaker for Change. From August 3rd to August 9th, schools in New Zealand and from all around the world will work on projects surrounding this year’s theme Collaboration4Peace: local, national, global. In 2000, the Peace Foundation started Schools’ Peace Week to promote youth voices and ideas about peace. Since then, each year students have come together to work towards peace in their school and community. It is always held in early August to honor Hiroshima Day (August 6th) and Nagasaki Day (August 9th), to raise awareness for the destructive consequences of nuclear war and to campaign for a world free of nuclear weapons. This year we ask students to collaborate with their classmates to create a peaceful and safe school environment, with their peers to reach out to the community or with their families to make a positive difference in their everyday lives. Collaboration4Peace can be introducing the jar of kindness in your classroom, preparing a peace banner for your school, organizing a peace sports event or volunteering in your community. You can come up with your own ideas or refer to the

Peace Foundation Toolkit for a project. You can choose to collaborate in your classroom or across year levels at school. You might want to organize a project in your student club or with your peer group. Schools’ Peace Week is about youth voices and ideas – your voices and ideas for peace! Our Schools’ Week Peace Youth Ambassadors are leading youth who are passionate about creating peaceful communities. Grace Brebner, student at Auckland University, and Emma Cooper-Williams, Auckland High School student, have both won the Peace Song Competition which included a visit to Hiroshima, Japan to learn about the destruction of nuclear war first hand. Kainat Khan is the Schools’ Peace Week Ambassador for Pakistan. She is a tennis player and has founded the Kainat Welfare Organization to make sports available to all youth. Together with these inspiring youth The Peace Foundation encourages students from all around the world to join Schools’ Peace Week 2015. We are hoping to see Collaboration4Peace projects from Pakistan, India, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Indonesia, and many more pro-active countries. Whatever projects you are planning, make sure you let us know about it. Send us your

“REACT raises awareness and promotes discussion among young people …” Responding to Armed Conflicts

By Lucy Stewart (REACT programme coordinator)

Today’s youth will be the leaders of tomorrow and as such it is vital that they are informed, responsible global citizens who value diversity, and practice critical thinking and understanding. The Peace Foundation’s Responding to Armed Conflict (REACT) presentation is available for free to all high schools in the wider Auckland region. The presentation focuses on issues of armed conflict and promotes peaceful solutions and disarmament. The purpose of the presentation is to raise awareness and promote discussion among young people on these issues and present them with ways that they can engage in global issues in a peaceful way. Our topics vary from presentation to presentation depending on schools’ needs and wishes. The REACT program this year has been going from strength to strength with numerous successful presentations to a range of high schools across Auckland. We have an experienced research team who have Photo credits: Peace Pals - One People One Planet 2012

a lot of expertise in the field of peace and disarmament and are eager to share their knowledge and experiences. Topics requested by schools this year have been varied and challenging: terrorism, ISIS, the Charlie Hebdo attacks, Ebola and its connection to conflict and poverty, the Baltimore Riots, conflict in Sub-Saharan Africa and child soldiers. Our REACT team have been thoroughly impressed by the attentiveness of the students we have presented to and their insightful questions and discussions on the issues. It is obvious the desire of students to help bring about change in the wider world. Some comments from students regarding our presentations: n "They put the situation in another perspective that was very encouraging and open." n "I learned the factors that had contributed to this issue and that it was different from what was first perceived."

"Great ideas were brought up, and I really enjoyed it! Thank you Peace Foundation for bringing up great ideas." The REACT presentation can be delivered to class groups, lunchtime clubs or school assemblies. The content is flexible depending on a school’s needs and wishes and we are happy to adjust our topics to fit into NCEA requirements. If you would like to book the REACT team to present at your school, please email us at: react@peacefoundation. or contact us on: 09 373 2379 We look forward to hearing from you.

He moved into this position from his internship at the Peace Foundation and is very pleased to have been given this opportunity. Although he has lived in many places in the world, Chris can claim to 2015WINTERedition

be from Australia, considering that is where he has spent most of his time. He has done a large variety of things in his life; he was a roadie and lighting director, he spent a few years restoring antique Chinese furniture, and he has spent quite a lot of time working in bookstores. All of these things gave him experience working in a very broad range of areas. He moved to New Zealand six years ago to study at the University of Auckland, and has been here ever since. His bachelors and honours degrees were in

philosophy, and he recently completed his Master’s Degree in Political Studies. The focus of his Master’s thesis was an evaluation of Native Title Legislation in Australia. His most recent occupation was as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the Philosophy and Politics Department of the University of Auckland. He taught political philosophy, political theory, and ethics. Chris has also worked doing project management and funding administration for various NGO’s in Auckland. In his spare time he likes reading, walking and cooking.

Exploring the world of peace at The Peace Foundation, New Zealand By Nadeem Ghazi (President of the Peace Education Welfare Organisation in Pakistan) My relationship with The Peace Foundation began in 2011 when I first initiated the promotion of peace education in Pakistan with Christina Barruel, Head of Peace Education and Caroline Ongleo, General Manager. I felt honored and extremely fortunate to complete an internship in peace education at The Peace Foundation from January to March this year. It was one of the most amazing days of my life when I flew to New Zealand. I was very excited to experience, live in and see the third most peaceful country in the world, having travelled from Pakistan, the third least peaceful country in the world! I was filled with optimism and excitement to learn more about the culture of peace in individuals,

organizations and schools in New Zealand. The Peace Foundation gave me an awesome opportunity to learn about, and experience, the Cool Schools Programme, Leadership through Peer Mediation (LtPM) and the Peaceful Family Communication programme. When I saw how the lives of young people in schools and colleges were transformed by developing conflict resolutions skills, I realized that the youth of Pakistan urgently need training in these skills. It was an amazing experience to talk about peace work in Pakistan at Auckland University, Massey University, a Rotary Club, ANZ United Nations, King’s College and Sancta Maria College with the kind support of The Peace Foundation. I

would like to thank all the staff of The Peace Foundation for their support. I was touched by the Māori culture and felt honored to be welcomed and farewelled in the traditional Māori way. I would also like to thank King’s College and Warkworth Gas (Hugo and Alana Barruel) for their kind donations for Schools' Peace Week in Pakistan 2015. Thank you very much, Gary Russell from United Nations for your generous help in mentoring, accommodating and supporting me like one of your family members. I can assure all of you that your investment in me will be an investment in spreading the word of peace amongst communities experiencing unrest in Pakistan.

Kia Tau te Rangimarie

Kia Tau te Rangimarie by Carol Smith Kia Tau te Rangimārie Kia hora te marino Kia whakapapa pounamu te moana Kia tere te karohirohi I mua i te huarahi Let the peace be with you Let the calm be widespread Let the sea glisten like pounamu Let the shining summer Forever dance across your path Tihei Mauri Ora I would firstly like to acknowledge the commitment, passion, knowledge and skills of my predecessors Johnnie Black and Tania Te Whenua. Nga mihi ki a korua. He mea nunui ta korua mahi mo te kaupapa rangimārie i tenei whenua o nga iwi Māori me nga tamariki mokopuna nga rangatira mo apopo. No reira, kei te mihi atu kia korua. It is always difficult to follow in the footsteps of others however, my excitement is that the mara (garden) has been well prepared to nurture the seeds which have been planted. The programme Kia Tau te Rangimārie is an exciting programme which will cater to those tamariki, rangatahi and whanau who

give the same mana to others. Another role that I am required to play, is to create and move the waka of Te Tuapapa Rongomau o Aotearoa (The Peace Foundation of New Zealand) in a direction of bicultural practice. Creating a strong waka (canoe) of bicultural practice will allow for the incorporation of multicultural practice which will certainly enhance our delivery of peace education in Aotearoa New Zealand and meet our mission statement.

will be able to embrace dealing with and facing conflict using kaupapa Māori processes as they pertain to each individual iwi. This is a truly exciting concept as it allows for the programme to be delivered in a tailored and individual manner ensuring that mana whenua and mana tangata is considered and maintained. Ways of knowing, being, doing and relating in te Ao Māori are essential to be implemented if there is truly to be a shift in thinking of catering for the needs of tangata whenua, as we all know, one size does not fit all. I believe Kia Tau te Rangimārie can be an important “tool” to address the differences. This programme is designed to be presented in kura and mainstream schools where there is a demographic Māori and where schools may wish to embrace the concepts of Te Ao Māori as an alternative curriculum. We are coming to the end of the 2014-2015 funding round and are about to complete our quota of full trainings and revisits. Bookings for trainings are being arranged for the next year. Using hohourongo (restoration of mana/ justice) is a powerful “tool” in ensuring that one’s well being is of the utmost importance and is attended to. To have a sense of Mana Atua (well being) of myself will enable me to

No reira I look forward to the wero that I have accepted to undertake and very much look forward to my engagement with kura, rangatahi, tamariki and whanau. Naku noa Na Carol Smith Te Rarawa/Ngati Pakahi Co-ordinator Māori Programme Email:

In Focus

‘Jade Speaks Up’ in Schools The behaviours of children that we see in schools are not always directly related to what is happening in school. There are children in every school who witness bullying or domestic violence that leaves them feeling unsafe and unsure who to trust. When a child is on ‘high alert’ it is a huge challenge to focus on learning. It is also a challenge for that child to not overreact if they get knocked over, or are laughed at, or told off. Each of these incidents register as a potential threat deep within the brain,

and suddenly we have an ‘out of control’ child. Teachers often wonder what to do with such behaviours and try many ways of dealing with them. A programme has been developed by Violence Free Waitakere to help all children in schools explore issues related to the effects of violence – whether it is domestic violence or bullying. ‘Jade Speaks Up’ uses an animated short film, made in New Zealand, to share the message of Jade and her little brother Jasper with children who may be dealing

with a scary situation. The film contains sung jingles that children aged 8 years -12 years can easily memorise and recall in times when they may need to think ‘what can I do right now to keep me safe?’ The DVD is accompanied by a second DVD with additional lesson plans and teacher resources for covering aspects of wellbeing such as trust, creating a safety plan, and good self-talk. These are aspects of self-management that all children can benefit from thinking about and engaging in activities with their classmates and a trusted adult. Training for teachers, youth workers, SWiS workers and RTLB’s in the use of the programme within school is available through Violence Free Waitakere. Violence Free Waitakere is a partner organisation with the Peace Foundation and the ‘Jade Speaks Up’ resource was developed over four years with the involvement of one of the Peace Foundation consultant-trainers, Andrea O’Hagan. For more information contact: Violence Free Waitakere;
