A member of the Bell Community achieved an incredible feat over the recent holidays… Dave, father of 5/6 student Mungo and also a founding member of ICAN (Intenational Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons), was part of a team who received the Nobel Peace Prize! The prize was awarded to recognise ICANs ‘role in achieving the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons’. To read more about their achievement and the organisation check out: http://www.icanw.org/action/nobel-peace-prize-2017-2/
During the week Mungo spoke to 5/6O and 5/6E about the achievement of the ICAN team. Mungo explained what the prize is and why ICAN received the award, and displayed his depth of knowledge about nuclear weapon prohibition when responding to questions from fascinated students and teachers! Thanks Mungo – and congratulations Dave!
