Peace Pole

Flagstaff Hill Primary School is proud of its association with many community groups in and around our area.

On the 2nd July 2024 we had our first ever Peace Pole Ceremony.

The Peace Pole program which had its beginnings after the Second World War in 1955, was developed by the World Peace Prayer Society Founder, Masahisa Goi. Now, more than 250,000 Peace Poles stand in approximately 200 countries around the globe, symbolizing the common wish for a world at peace.

The 4 sides of our Flaggy Peace Pole are English, Kaurna, Braille and Japanese.

Each side says 'May Peace Prevail on Earth'.

We are called to remember to always act from a place of Peace and Kindness DSC 0001

Jai’s Walk

Every year, students and teachers drop pens and workbooks for an afternoon to complete laps of the school grounds in honour of Jai Galliford, a much loved and valued student who passed away from Neuroblastoma in March 2015 at the age of 9.

Students, teachers, parents and friends come dressed in blue & white; Jai’s favourite colours and donate money and purchase afternoon tea on the day to raise funds for The Kids Cancer Project.

At the conclusion of the walk, The Jai Galliford Memorial Award is then awarded to a girl and boy who best displays the qualities that Jai displayed and will receive a medallion.

To date, the school has raised: $12,697.80

We will never forget the impact Jai made on our school and the community.

One Tree Per Child

As part of the One Tree Per Child Onkaparinga Council School Program, we were given over 40 plants to plant around the school.

These are all local native plants that provide food and habitat for the vulnerable Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo that lives in this area.

As part of our Day of Friendship (23/7/2024) our Friend-o-leaders buddied up with some reception students to plant our trees, along with members of council, and the One Tree Per Child program.

The reception students decorated the tree guards with images connected with friendship.

Students have partnered with The Flagstaff Hill Rotary Club to complete the Anzac Walk, located opposite the school on Black Road. The Flagstaff Hill Rotary Club succeeded in winning community funding for this local project which commemorates the 100th Anniversary of World War I and the school is honoured to have been part of this wonderful project.
