Today is International Day of Peace. In a joint initiative with other international schools in the region, six of our 8th-grade students joined students from BEPS, ISF and DYP outside the Bourse in Brussels city centre to create a wish tree for peace. We brought the wishes of all our 8th-grade students to hang on the tree. There was an opportunity to recite peace poems and reflections. Passers-by were invited to write wishes for peace as well. The weather was wet and blustery but the spirit of all involved kept us warm.
