Importance of imparting “peace education” in the educational institutions to end all forms of violence in the families, schools and communities was highlighted by founder & director of Peace Channel, Fr. C P Anto.

Speaking at the induction programme of new peace club members of Assisi Higher Secondary School, Dimapur on February 18, Fr. Anto stressed on the importance of peace education in the multi-cultural, religious and linguistic communities of Nagaland. 
“Peace always begins with self and then transmits to others by following certain universal values and principles suggested by the movement,” said FR. Anto. 
He also emphasized on impact of peace education programmes centred on conflict resolution which typically focus on the social behavioural symptoms of conflict, training individuals to resolve inter-personal disputes through techniques of negotiation and peer mediation. 
Encouraging students to be “messengers of peace”, Fr. Anto asked them to be “self-starter” by taking initiative to study better, lead the group, volunteering for service, helping the needy and resolving small conflicts. 
He asked the students to show respect to all kinds of life, to develop a healthy self-image, build trust with others, promote social growth and address the suffering in the world while learning compassion and empathy. Fr. Anto also urged the students to start practicing forgiveness as it is the first step towards making peace. 
The programme was chaired by Kisuilei, welcome address was delivered by Sr. Judith Eliz Pinto and vote of thanks by Seyikhrereto. The new club members took peace pledge to be the peace lovers, peace makers and peace promoters and the programme was concluded with a Peace Anthem.
Later, district coordinator of Peace Channel, Apong, trained the students on capacity building.
