The 30th anniversary Peace Run in Australia
The 30th Anniversary Peace Run in Australia started this morning with a visit to St Joseph's Primary School at Kangaroo Point, Brisbane.
Cultural captains, Eamon and Charlotte, accepted a Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of their school.
Our next visit was to the Caboolture Montessori School which, situated in bushland outside Caboolture, was a delightful experience.
Our team was greeted firstly, by an impressive Entrance sign welcoming the Peace Runners to the school, and then the students were lined up, welcoming us with high fives as we proceeded into the school.
We then all headed outside for the Peace tree planting. Two of our stronger team members, assisted by students lifted the the new Olive tree into its place.
The third school the Team visited today was Beerwah State School. The principal, Janet Austen, met us and led us to a classroom where Atul presented the Peace Run to year 6.
The children asked some great questions and Ryan received the Certificate of Appreciation on behalf of the school.
The Peace Run had visited the zoo in 2013, when the zoo was dedicated as a Sri Chinmoy Peace-Blossom.
