What did I learn in school today?

 Original date: 08.10.2013

As the title of this post says, our task for today was to write what we learned at school today, or to be more precise, what we learned during our English class.
A quick and short answer to this question would “Peace One Day” and Jeremy Gilley, but a longer and more detailed answer is that we have learned what the charity “Peace One Day” is and what it works for, and that Jeremy Gilley, who is (was) a British actor and a film maker, is the one who founded it. And believe it or not, we have also had a chance to speak with Jeremy via Skype. It was a very exiting experience because he is (was) after all an actor, and he is also known worldwide for his work and accomplishments with “Peace One Day”. I think that we are in fact the only ones at this school who have had the chance to speak with Jeremy on Skype.
So, now that you know that we have spoken with Jeremy Gilley, you’re probably wondering what we were talking about. We asked him some questions about his charity and their progress so far. He seemed very prepared for the conversation and he managed to answer our question with both precision and detail. And you could see that he was a professional actor because he seemed relaxed when we were having the Skype conversation with him.
I think that this is all I have and need to say about the day today. If you want to know more about “Peace One Day”, you can visit their website by clicking this link: http://peaceoneday.org/


  1. Yes that is true! We are not only the only ones at our school who have spoken to him on Skype, I think we are the only class in Norway as well! I thought it was fun too!

  2. That is so cool! I want to one day become an actor. The fact that you got to talk to one is amazing. I will definately look into that charity.

  3. Wow, I wish I could be able to meet an actor like that one day. You are so lucky, the charity seems very nice and helpful.
