Peace-zza and Peace Soup for Peace!

Hackley Lower School celebrated Peace Day on Friday, 9/20 by sharing a “Peace Meal.”

Eating Peace-zza (pizza) and Split Peace Soup (split pea) added to the general excitement of the meal. During their lunch shifts, students had the opportunity to mingle and make friends across the grades. It was a peaceful meal!!

Peace One Day was established in 2001 to create an annual  annual international Peace Day. The  member states of the United Nations unanimously adopted the first ever annual day of global ceasefire and non-violence on 21 September – Peace Day.  Since then, Peace One Day has worked to to institutionalise Peace Day, September 21, as a self-sustaining annual day of global unity and of  intercultural cooperation.
