Students Display Handmade Pinwheels for Peace

On Monday, September 21, St. Agnes-Sacred Heart School students will celebrate the International Day of Peace by "planting" pinwheels for peace and holding a Prayer Service for Peace at both the primary and middle school campuses. Each student created a pinwheel, which on one side features his or her written thoughts about war and peace, tolerance and living in harmony with others. On the other side of the pinwheel, students were asked to illustrate peace through a drawing or painting. These pinwheels of all shapes and sizes will be "planted" into the ground around the schools, as a visual representation of the students' prayers for peace.
