Peace Day at the Aga Khan Academy, Nairobi-Junior School

01 November 2011

"Peace Begins With Me" was the theme of this year’s World Peace Day celebration.

"Peace Begins With Me" was the theme of this year’s World Peace Day celebration on Wednesday, September 21st 2011.

In preparation for the event, Aga Khan Junior Academy students explored the meaning of the theme and showed their understanding in the form of poetry, story, drama, music and art. Each class chose individual or collaborative works to share at the school presentation on World Peace Day.

The intention of the theme was to recognize that peace occurs at many different levels but always begins at the individual level. The school hopes that they have inspired others to also reflect on what they can do to make everyday a world peace day.
