Peace Day, which is often referred to formally as United Nations Day, is observed every year in October. Another occasion that is celebrated in October is International Children’s Day, which is celebrated during the last week of October. This holiday was originally created by UNICEF to celebrate our cultural diversity and ethnic heritage.
This year, all pre-primary classes (Rooms 1, 2, and 3) celebrated both United Nations Day and International Children’s Day on October 23rd.
As a part of our Peace Day Celebration, students sang peace songs, created peace artwork, and alongside their parents prepared and tasted authentic foods from the culture they represented. Teachers and spectators enjoyed watching the children parade as they represented different nations.
Maria Montessori believed that “establishing peace is the work of education.” With this in mind, Indian Harbor Montessori focuses on helping adults and children alike to understand the interconnectedness of all people.
“We shall walk together on this path of life, for all things are part of the universe, and are connected with each other to form one whole unity.”
Peace Day was a very special celebration; however, the real celebration… each day at Indian Harbour Montessori is peace day as we continue to celebrate our connections within both our local and global communities.
What a beautiful celebration of International Peace Day!
