Pool Academy students sing for World Peace day

Students from Pool Academy will be singing to help raise awareness for the UN International Day of Peace.


The event will take place on Friday, September 21, and will also support ‘One Day One Choir’ – a global initiative which started in 2014.

A group of Year 7 students will be singing in the Main Hall to their peers before lunch time on the day.

Emily Cromey, Music teacher at Pool Academy, will be helping the Year 7’s to rehearse a song for the day.

She said: “It goes without saying that world peace in our time is a goal we should all be striving toward whether we achieve it or not. Supporting the UN International Day of Peace raises awareness plus it is a wonderful opportunity to get together and sing.”

World Peace day events will be taking place in Truro and throughout Cornwall from 21st -23rd of September.

Pool Academy will be joining in along with many other schools, colleges and communities.

Miss Meakin said: “I am so pleased that Pool Academy students have been given the opportunity to join in with the UN International Day of Peace on Friday. It is such an inspiring event to get involved with.”

In Truro there are three days of events being organised on Lemon Quay, Truro Cathedral, Truro Methodist Church, and for the first time at County Hall.

Funds are being raised for “Children of Peace” and “The Amos Trust”.

The events are supported by Truro City Council, Cornwall County Council, Truro Cathedral, Truro Methodist Church and many other individuals and groups.
