Video of the days events. Enjoy!
This morning, a large group of runners from over 30 countries paid a visit to Indonesian School in Kota Kinabalu (SIKK).
The Peace Torch was lit to mark the start of this special, collaborative program by Rotary District 3420 [Indonesia], Rotary district 3310 [Malaysia], SIKK (owned by Government of Indonesia), Indonesian Ministry of Tourism, and the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run.
National Anthems of both Malaysia and Indonesia were sung, followed by the Peace Run theme song composed by its founder Sri Chinmoy.
We were honoured to have the President of Sri Chinmoy Centres International Ms. Ranjana Ghose (right) at the ceremony.
The Torch Bearer Award was presented to Consul General of Indonesia Mr. Krishna Djelani, with much joy and gratitude.
A special plaque from Sekolah Indonesia Kota Kinabalu was presented by Consul General of Indonesia Mr. Krishna Djelani.
As the last performance, these student dancers entertained us with their original, dynamic performance, combining both the traditional Indonesian and modern sounds and movements.
Dr. Agraha Levine from the Peace Run briefly introduced the proclamation of Sekolah Indonesia Kota Kinabalu as a Sri Chinmoy Peace School.
This temporary plaque proclaiming SIKK as a Sri Chinmoy Peace School will soon be replaced by a permanent plaque.
