IBSB Students Celebrate International Peace Day

September 25, 2014

On the 21st of September every year, over 2 million people celebrate International Peace Day. Peace One Day is an organisation working with global leaders and celebrities to bring a day of ceasefire and non-violence, allowing humanitarian aid to reach children and adults in need.

This year on Friday the 19th, IBSB joined schools and communities around the world to recognise this wonderful day of peace. The Primary and Secondary school joined together for a minute of silence, before releasing 350 white balloons into the sky, each sending a message of peace. Then later the same day Year 5 presented a memorable assembly on Peace Day. It was a wonderful day, with many happy thoughts and good wishes shared. We hope everyone had a peaceful weekend and that these peaceful thoughts last with us all year!
