Students at Bay Farm Montessori Academy Celebrate International Day of Peace

Monday, September 12, 2016

Today, the students and staff at Bay Farm Montessori Academy observed the International Day of Peace with a brief ceremony held around the Peace Pole on the Bay Farm campus.  Students in grades 4-8 recited quotes and famous sayings about peace from well-known people.  In addition, all students from pre-school through grade 8 sang Light the Candles All Around the World.

The United Nations’ International Day of Peace is marked every year on September 21.  It is a global holiday when individuals, communities, nations, and governments highlight efforts to end conflict and promote peace.  Peace education is an important part of Montessori education.
