International Peace Day was celebrated at the Apeejay School Saket at its campus. The programme started with a projection of two short video films on 'Peace One Day' produced by students. This was followed by a melodious chorus with inspiring lyrics on peace and harmony in nature and humanity at large
The message of peace was depicted through a short skit, poem recitation and chanting of 'Shanti Path' to the individuals, social and global level. Students of the primary wing dressed as pastel of peace from different parts of the world and religion conveyed the message of brotherhood and oneness. The thought of unity in diversity, unanimity and love was communicated beautifully through a synchronized dance performance.
The students then moved towards the specially erected peace pole, a symbol of wish for world peace, where they lit candles .This was followed by tying of peace bands and pinning of peace badges under the peace tree, with symbols of different religions hanging from its branches. Everyone shared a cup of tea and expressed their views about the necessity of sowing the seeds of peace and harmony in society.
