Peace Day

The International Day of Peace

Peace Day – September 21

imagine . . . whirled peace!

Pinwheels for Peace is an art installation project started in 2005 by two Art teachers, Ann Ayers and Ellen McMillan, who teach at Monarch High School in Coconut Creek, Florida, as a way for students to express their feelings about what’s going on in the world and in their lives.  The project was quickly embraced by their students and the entire school community.  The projects have extended to a world wide participation in just two years.

Blue Mountains Organic Community Gardens  worked with local schools Katoomba North Primary School, and Katoomba Primary School.  Kids  created their beautiful pinwheels with their own special messages.

Children gathered on the labyrinth  At 12 pm we had a minutes silence while the kids stood on our beautiful labyrinth  holding their pinwheels.  The children sang “Deep Peace” for us.  Brief messages of peace were  spoken from the Buddhist and Brahma Kumaris group.  The children planted their pinwheels and had lunch while parents walked the labyrinth afterwards to the beautiful Shakuhachi flute playing of Bronwyn Kirkpatrick.

Deep Peace to You!

This year International Peace Day is on Monday September 22nd.  This will be a round the world thing so we still get to hook up when we have a minutes silence with all those peaceful vibes.  At this stage it is the Katoomba primary schools.

If any other schools are interested they can contact us.

We celebrated International Peace Day 2007 with Katoomba North and Katoomba Primary Schools
