Lower School Students Reflect on International Day of Peace

Bolles lower school students on the Whitehurst Campus and Ponte Vedra Beach Campus held special Flags the morning of September 21 to recognize the United Nation’s International Day of Peace.

According to the UN, “this year’s theme is Actions for Peace: Our Ambition for the #GlobalGoals. It is a call to action that recognizes our individual and collective responsibility to foster peace.”

On the Whitehurst Campus, lower school language teacher Linda Farber shared the history and significance of the International Day of Peace before turning it over to Grade 5. The fifth graders performed a song about peace in Spanish and English for the entire school and attending family members. View photos and watch the performance here.

Students on the Ponte Vedra Beach Campus shared what peace meant to them during Flag in George Hall, with many focusing on the need to find peace within themselves in order to spread peace across the world.

After Flag, all grades participated in a Peace Walk around the courtyard to reflect and view the peace poles made by last year’s Grade 5 students. These poles, each unique in design, feature the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” written in English on one side and the same phrase written in another language on the opposite side.
