Sing Peace Around the World
Children’s House Montessori Elementary Students with the direction of teacher Germain Koomen
Camden, Maine, USA
“Each child decorated a felt figure to represent him/herself and his/her pledge to be a peacemaker. The felt figures join hands around the Earth to ‘Sing Peace Around the World.’
“This song was written by a Montessori parent to commemorate the strong role of peace education in a Montessori school. The textile artwork was circulated throughout the region before being sent to their global art project partner in Singapore.
“Teacher Germaine Koomen has participated in this project since 1999 and her classes have exchanged peace messages with students in Australia, China, Romania, and Columbine High School, amongst many.”
