St. Paul the Apostle Catholic School will be celebrating International Peace Day on Friday, September 21, 2007 at the school by highlighting peace in our lives at school, at home and in our world.|
During announcements throughout the week, St. Paul Catholic School students have shared information with the student body regarding a famous peacemaker. In all classrooms teachers have dedicated time to talking about how peace begins in each person’s heart, and how each student can do things to bring peace into their world, either at school, at home or in their neighbourhood.
On Friday, September 21, 2007, one student from each class will read his or her peace pledge on the announcements. In addition, students will gather in the gym in a moment of silence to pray before embarking upon the school’s walk-a-thon.
The school will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the fundraiser to Development and Peace to help promote peace in Third World nations.
