Peace Day 2013
Indian Harbour Montessori had a Peace Day celebration last Friday, October 18th. Students 3-6 years at IHM have been learning about peace and other cultures since the first day of school. 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 IHM is peace day as we continue to celebrate our connections within both our local and global communities.
