 Pro-PEACE Assembly (Anti-Bullying)

 

“I was once asked why I don’t participate in anti-war demonstrations.
I said that I will never do that, but as soon as you have a pro-peace rally, I’ll be there.”

-Mother Teresa

 
We believe that focusing on the negative will always produce more negative, even if your focus is in opposition.  Therefore we choose to focus our energies on the positive side.  Hence the name PRO-PEACE. Through inspiration and music we teach the students to recognize the influence their energy is having on others around them.  We challenge them to take responsibility for their energy and to give what they wish to receive.  Together we explore the concept of choice and empower them to discover the endless possibilities of making positive choices.

 

 

In the Rhythm of P.E.A.C.E. Assembly

(Black History Month)


An enlightening musical presentation honoring the rich history of the African continent and the diaspora.
With the focus on African Canadian pioneers P.E.A.C.E. looks to remind us of the great accomplishments that happened right here on Canadian soil and talk about Canada’s role in the abolition of the intercontinental slave trade. Musically infused, high energy and informative P.E.A.C.E. looks to inspire youth with its message of perseverance, love and unity. Africa’s history is everyone’s history and should be commemorated as such.

Specialized Workshops

 

     Using the power of words, sounds and rhythms we encourage youth to take hold of the great possibilities hidden in their abilities. By engaging youth and inspiring them to take advantage of life’s great opportunities, we make tangible connections with their goals and passions.  
    
This becomes a means of communication and a way to initiate change in their lives. Understanding the principles of discipline and academic merit we thrive on empowering students to reach for higher potential in the educational system and dedicate all of our material to the pursuit of excellence.
     Drawing on our own experiences and travels we infuse high-energy performances into our workshops and connect with children in a unique way that leaves seeds planted for the future.
