25 September, 2017 · Peace Day Celebrated @ Silver Oaks
The International Day of Peace ("Peace Day") is observed around the world each year on 21 September. Established in 1981 by the United Nations, Peace Day is a day for all humanity to commit to Peace above all differences and to contribute to building a Culture of Peace. It is to recognize the efforts of those who have worked hard to end conflict and promote peace. The International Day of Peace is also a day of ceasefire. The Day’s theme for 2017 is “Together for Peace: Respect, Safety and Dignity for All.” The peace dove flying with an olive branch in its beak is one of the most common symbols for the day. In Judaism, Christianity, and Islam a white dove is generally a sign for peace. Peace is an occurrence of harmony characterized by the lack of violence, conflict behaviors and the freedom from fear of violence. Commonly understood as the absence of hostility and retribution, peace also suggests sincere attempts at reconciliation, the existence of healthy or newly healed interpersonal or international relationships, prosperity in matters of social or economic welfare, the establishment of equality, and a working political order that serves the true interests of all. Conversely, at Silver Oaks, while celebrating Peace day, our intent was to get Oakians focused on giving thought to the role each and within this context Oakians were provided reference context to develop and deliver English Speeches on the theme with topics of “International Peace Day” (Grades 1-2); “A Peaceful World” (Grades 3-5);”Is War necessary for peace” (Grades6-8).Pupils of pre-school enjoyed Peach and blue color day with Show and tell activities.
