Our primary school began Peace One Day by drawing and writing what peace means to each child. This activity generated lots of ideas as to how we as a school could celebrate this day. Therefore, we decided what better way to mark this special day than to make the peace symbol in our houses! During the afternoon break, each child in their colours of red, yellow, blue made their way to the playground to join in with the making of this symbol. It truly was a coloured spectacle in the name of peace! Every child joined hands to unite in an effort to create the largest reduction of violence globally, as well as the largest gathering of children in the name of peace, on one day – Peace Day. It is our participation as a school and other schools around the world on Peace Day that will ensure the success of this historic event and contribute to the institutionalisation of Peace Day around the world.
