Accompanied by teachers and principals of the Sant Vicent Ferrer School in Teulada, classrooms of children spilled out onto the streets to commemorate the ‘World Day of Peace’ carrying banners and badges displaying the symbol of peace.
Chanting ‘Peace not war,’ they paraded their message through the town to the council offices where they were greeted by Mayor Joan Antoni Bertomeu and Councillor for Education Anna Puig.
Then in an emotional moment, the councillors accepted a message from two small children representing the entire school that called for world peace, happiness, freedom and the elimination of violence of any kind.
Afterwards, Councillor Anna Puig congratulated the staff and children and assured them that the city council shared the sentiments expressed and quoted Mother Teresa of Calcutta as the ultimate message.
“Peace is much more that non-violence, living in peace is to live with joy, peace begins with a smile, it is not enough to speak of peace, each person must believe in it, work for it and contribute their bit to make this a peaceful world”
Later, the children took part in several ceremonies throughout Teulada and Moraira including the release of doves as symbols of peace, donated by the Sports Club Azure, Costa Blanca.
