Creating world peace may be challenging for primary school students, but “whirled” peace was a meaningful and fun way for students at Bayville Primary School to be a part of the Pinwheels for Peace Project.  A celebration of International Peace Day, the event is intended to make a visual statement about Peace for all to see.

Throughout the school, kindergarten, first, and second graders created colorful paper pinwheels to display in front of the school at the flagpole. It is estimated that nearly 3.5 million pinwheels were spinning in the wind around the world on September 21 to recognize International Peace Day. Bayville Primary students are proud that they are counted in those numbers!

Assistant Principal Dorothy McManus said the activity was a fun way for students to learn about International Peace efforts. “It is also important for children to feel that they are part of something meaningful,” she added.
