The U.N. designated the International Day of Peace, as September 15, in 1981. Last year, young people in 32 countries all over the world took 1 minute of silence at noon, to support efforts for world peace.
On the International Day Of Peace we had a short assembly. Short introduction
of the purpose of the day, we sang our peace song then observed 1 minute of silence.
Ended with everyone saying “May peace prevail on earth”.
Follow-up Activity: Each student traces his/her hand (finger together) on construction paper. They then write their name on it and a peaceful word. Cut out hands. These will be sent to the office and placed on a bulletin board (on a tree). Display work.
