To coincide with the convening 74th General Assembly and to mark "International Peace Day" Student Observance was held at the United Nations Headquarters on September 20. For the fourth straight year, our students were invited to attend this event.
This year's theme was Climate Action for Peace
The day began with the ringing of the Peace Bell followed by a session lead by Secretary General Antonio Guterres. The session was followed by a performance and talk session with United Nations Ambassador for Peace, cellist Yo Yo Ma and violinist Midori Goto. A session lead by young students followed.
Our students were exposed to a very unique experience that can only happen in New York and they are more aware of the urgent need to act to prevent climate change disaster.
