Hampstead School Marks Peace Day

On September 21 Hampstead Elementary School celebrated the International Day of Peace, joining together to send amessage of Peace out to the world. Everyone in the entire school formed two circles, expressing a wish for a more peaceful world. A message was read about peace, then three Grade 6 students read peace poems. This was followed by a moment of silence wishing for more love and less violence everywhere. We closed with a Bob Marley song, “One Love” where we inspired everyone to see through our differences into our similarities and how we are all one. May this day motivate all of us to bring more love and less judgment and hatred to our homes, schools and world.
