International Day of Peace

International Day of Peace

On September 21st, Blue Mountain Union observed the United Nations’ “International Day of Peace”.  Students and staff participated in a parade led by our peace dove, which was followed by the erecting of a ‘peace pole’ located at our outdoor classroom. The peace pole is inscribed with the word ‘peace’ in the four different languages represented in our student body: English, Abenaki, Chinese and Gujarati. Each student placed a handful of sand to help with the installation of the peace pole.
