The head of Birkdale Intermediate welcomes the team, and asks us a few questions about where we are planning to visit today.
Q and A: Where do the runner's come from? Vera spoke in her native Russian as a clue.
Lena and Vera make their way up the hill to Birkdale Primary, blissfully unaware that a powerful downpour is about to happen!
We huddle for cover from the downpour under a solitary tree!
Birkdale Primary seemed quite excited during our skits : "Is this an example of peace?" One runner is tired and another runner kindly offers to take the torch.
The children love learning the actions to a song we sing with them.
Imagine peace in your heart...
Make a wish for peace.
It just so happens that Kana, a member of the Peace Run, visits her son,Sotatsu, and his school, Birkdale Primary, on the Peace Run!
