Join Glen Urquhart School for this free family-friendly event to celebrate International Day of Peace. The GUS nature trail and grounds will be open for exploration and play, and we will host a number of activities to celebrate peace. Kids of all ages are welcome, with a caregiver, to join.
Activities will include:
- Picturing Peace: Participants will have materials and inspiration available to create depictions and messages of peace, to keep or to pass on.
- Community Art Project: Using materials from nature, we will create a temporary, collaborative art installation that transforms a section of our outdoor campus into a universal symbol of peace.
- Peace flags: Decorate prayer flags
- Mindfulness Walk: Join us for a guided walk on our GUS nature trail and cultivate inner peace through mindfulness, yoga and forest bathing!
- And more!
