Staff and students at St. Anne Catholic School had the opportunity to participate in the World Harmony Run at their school recently. |
The World Harmony Run is a global torch relay that seeks to promote international friendship.
An international team of runners carry a flaming torch, (symbolizing the aspiration of human oneness), through more than 70 countries around the globe. Staff and students were told of the significance of the Run, listened to the World Harmony song, signed a banner, and were able to touch the torch as they each made a silent wish for World Harmony.
The St. Anne Catholic school community formed a gigantic circle in the school yard with Mr. Thomson’s Grade 6 class joining the World Harmony runners for a few laps around the circle, passing the torch among themselves. The World Harmony Run afforded the school a wonderful opportunity to participate in a global event which helped connect grassroots efforts to world harmony.
