Fenton st, Tauranga - Western Heights Primary School

Reported by Daniel Rubin 8.0 km

We met representatives from St Mary's School's running team...

Did you know that the late and great Muhammad Ali honoured the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run and held a Peace Run torch? Watch the demo video on our home-page to see!

We ran to Kawaha Point School. Lots of toots from friendly truck drivers along Koutu Rd.

Matua Terrence meets us with school representitives. He was really enthusiastic and warmly welcomed the torch. He told us that peace is an important value that they teach at Kawaha Point School.

Running around sportsgrounds

In the background you can see different flags which represent the different nationalities that have attended Kawaha.

Our presentation at Western Heights Primary School. Note the mottos on the back wall, much like ours: "Peace begins with me!"
