This morning we joined the students and staff of East Para Primary School to unveil a Peace Pole in their garden. The Pole was donated by the members of the Rotary Club of Modbury Golden Grove as part of a project to mark the Centenary of Rotary in South Australia.
The unveiling today, on this, the International Day of Peace was a statement by the school community on its commitment in joining with Rotary and other Peace Pole Schools, to be a messenger of Peace to all of Australia.
President Alan read a message from the Secretary-General of the United Nations calling on us all that Peace is not only a noble vision for humanity, but a call to action.
For the students of East Para Primary school, preparing the garden and planting their Peace Pole is their first action to see Peace Prevail on Earth.
