   Comprising 1296 handmade terracotta tiles, the Peace Path linking Bialik’s Gringlas Sports
Centre and Early Learning Centre, is the culmination of a two and a half year project involving
children from our 4 Year Old Kindergartens and Primary School.
   Peace, a key theme at Bialik College, was the focus for these young children from 2004 until
2006. Having discussed and researched peace, each child engraved their understanding of
peace - their thoughts, hopes and conclusions - onto a clay tile.
   While these tiles are certainly attractive, their decorative function was secondary to the
principal educational objective of enabling the children to make their thinking ‘visible’.
   As you walk along the Peace Path, you are encouraged to inspect these beautiful tiles. May
they inspire us all to work for peace and harmony in our families, in our school, in our community
and in the world.
