World Interfaith Harmony Week

“Love of the Good and Love of the Neighbour” -  words to live by and ones we certainly took to heart in our Elementary School last week as we celebrated World Interfaith Harmony Week, a UN initiative that encourages all people of goodwill to recognize that their common values far outweigh their differences. 

During two special assemblies, our students sang about “peace, salaam, shalom, namaste,” and they learned the meaning of each of these special words. We also welcomed Dr. Henry Bishop, an artist, musician, educator, and expert in African culture, who took our kids on a musical journey, experiencing the fun of creating rhythms on the djembes, a type of African drum.

Thanks to all who helped mark this special week.
