Friday the 21st September was the United Nations International Day of Peace. We celebrated the day at my daughter’s Montessori Preschool. The children all dressed in white or blue (colours of the Peace flag) and a ceremony was held with a short speech followed by singing of the Peace Song and raising of the Peace flag next to the lit Peace candle. We were invited to light our own candle from the flame. We finished with a picnic for the students, parent, staff and carers.
I was so proud to be part of the celebration and for my daughter to learn about what it means, and to know that she can make a difference.
As you can imagine, the outfit was prepared and perfected, and she was happy to pose.I have already suggested that it be something added to my daughter’s primary school calendar – to be marked in some way. Here is a link suggesting 10 ways to promote peace in your classroom.
