In September, six Ray-Pec High School International Baccalaureate (IB) students and several parents attended a lecture at the World War I museum about peacekeeping to commemorate the UN Day of Peace.
Students learned about the experience of being a peacekeeper in conflict zones, the challenges of peacekeeping with the technology of the 21st century, and the positive contribution women make to a peacekeeping operation. The students also attended a memorial wreath laying ceremony to the peacekeepers who were killed this year. The students will study UN Peacekeeping operations during the 1990s in IB History later this semester.
