peacemaking in primary school
PeaceWiseKids courses for primary school aged children can be delivered in three main ways…
The courses can be taught in class by a classroom teacher as part of achieving curriculum outcomes.
The rules for what can legally be taught in scripture – whether in church or school – vary all over the country. Click the image above to take you to a page which explains the options in more detail!
And you can teach the material in your homes! For example as part of ongoing family devotions time or as part of a home- schooling programme.
The best way to see if PeaceWiseKids is right for you is to actually have a play with the content from the course you’re interested in.
Our one-time 14 day trial gives you chance to check it out for free!

I have personally seen the impact of using the PeaceWise approach to resolving conflict within the School community and am delighted that teachers and other leaders within schools can learn and apply these principles in their school communities.”
Dr Paul Burgis Principal – PLC Sydney
“What an absolute joy it is to see students’ lives transformed as they learn to be peacemakers who breathe grace and respond to conflict in a way that honours God. I know from personal experience what a change it can make to the whole culture of a school and the relationships within it!”
Judy Linossier, Principal (Drouin)
Chairo Christian School
“As a principal of a Christian School I am excited by the potential of the PeaceWiseKids material. I have personally seen the impact of using the PeaceWise approach to resolving conflict with adults, especially in Christian communities, and look forward to further shaping the lives of the children in our care by embedding the principles of PeaceWise in the life of our school.”
William Rusin, former Principal
Covenant Christian School
“As a Kids Ministry Director I wanted to include a unit on biblical peacemaking to holistically care for our little ones. Our children need help, as do we, in working out the gospel in relationships!! I love PeaceWise – it is Australian, gospel focused, engaging and age appropriate!! And can be delivered in person or online – meaning that you can adapt it to suit your kids church format!”
Jay-ellen Wright, Ministry Director
every child needs help with relationships – just like we do!
It’s normal for every young person to experience conflict. This could be at home, it could be unfriendly behaviour at school or with friends on some level, even in a really subtle or unintentional way. This could be teasing, bullying, exclusion or just plain selfishness.
Our courses help kids and youth understand relationships within a Christian framework in their language and in a fun and interactive way. We give them the practical tools to address their problem relationships and build better friendships.
With their new skills, young people have a greater understanding of themselves and their peers. Being a peacemaker is a “life-skill” they can then take with them for the rest of their lives. And use it to change their communities and their world.
