Global peace relay visits Ballarat.

CANADIAN LEAD Primary School students considered world peace and how they can play a role in it when the Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run visited during its 30th anniversary journey run from Brisbane to Adelaide.

Principal Darlene Cameron said the run’s motto, that peace starts in the heart of every child, fit well with the school motto to develop the head, heart and hands of every student.

Each student held the torch during its visit and contributed to a whole-school artwork about how individual actions could bring more peace to the world.

After a lap around the school and discussion about the different countries the torch-bearers hail from, the run set off on its 113km leg to Melbourne via Ballan and Bacchus Marsh.

The Sri Chinmoy Oneness-Home Peace Run is a global relay to promote international friendship and understanding.  

“The torch is purely a symbol of peace that goes through countries sharing the message that peace start in the hearts of all of us,” said coordinator Stacey Marsh.
