Schools in Lichfield are being invited to take part in a project aiming to promote peace and wellbeing in young people.
The Peace Pole education initiative is being organised by the Heart of England Rotary Clubs.
The organisation hopes it will help highlight issues such as discrimination, equality and poverty in schools
The roll out of the scheme to Lichfield comes after a successful pilot in Warwickshire.
Project co-ordinator, Margaret Morley, said:
“Promoting peace is a Rotary area of focus, as well as part of the school curriculum.
“It’s not just about planting a peace pole, it’s about working with schools to encourage young people to think about what peace means.
“Peace Poles are so important as they take children out of the classroom as well as providing areas of tranquillity and reflection.
“The pole is a constant reminder that we are working together to create a caring and compassionate society.”Margaret Morley
