Second graders at the Searingtown School in Herricks recently celebrated International Peace Day on September 21.
Students participated by wearing white and singing songs such as “Teaching Peace,” “Picnic of the World,” and chanting tunes about the continents and oceans.
Under the leadership of second grade teacher Deirdre Bambrick, the students were actively learning through song and hand movements about how we are all together on this beautiful planet at a great big “Picnic of the World.”
Mrs. Taliercio’s fourth grade class also joined hands to help make peace in the world.
Many classes celebrated Peace Day by going outside and sitting around Searingtown’s Peace Pole, reading poems and stories.
