International Day of Peace activities at Port Jefferson Schools

International Day of Peace was celebrated throughout the district with activities organized by the High School Student Organization.

As part of the observance, Student Organization members decorated school hallways, lockers and classrooms with messages of peace. They also produced a short film featuring middle and high school students speaking about what peace means to them. The video was viewed throughout the day in the school’s hallways. To add to the theme of global unity and serenity, songs with messages of peace were played over the high schools’ public address system.

At the elementary school, art students designed pinwheels for display in the courtyard, Picasso-inspired doves, Tibetan mandala designs, and a peace “quilt.”

Established in 1981 by a unanimous United Nations resolution, Peace Day is observed around the world to provide a time for all humanity to commit to contributing to building a culture of peace.
