Peacefulness is not just an absence of violence for children. It is a genuine feeling of being safe with each other and with themselves.
Feeling ‘at peace’ is a state of calm confidence even when things are not going well. Taking time and knowing skills to rest, relax, reflect and be calm are some of the things children discover about peacefulness at Jabiru, that will be vital skills for feelings of well-being for the rest of their lives.
In a Jabiru community peacefulness also means that we are committed to children and adults knowing and practicing non-violent ways of being together, including at times of conflict. No violence, including bullying and abuse, is tolerated.
