Montserrat included in International Peace Quilt

St Augustine School's submission - Peace Quilt

– St. Augustine Primary School participated in a special ‘world peace’ project which will be revealed at the London Olympics 2012.

“For this project, our school had to submit a drawing symbolizing peace, which will be transferred onto fabric by to form a Quilt,” explained Ms. Anne Marie Dewar, Principal of St. Augustine. “We had to think about what peace meant to us, and we had to include our island’s flag and to identify our school. We also had to make a sentence which stated why we wish for world peace.”

The school’s sentence for peace is “We want World Peace because we want fighting to stop and harmony and love to shine through everywhere.”

“Our International Peace Quilt works as a collective response to the principle behind both the traditional and modern Olympic ideals of building a Peaceful and Better World,” Lucy Tasker of Abrahammoss School in the United Kingdom and the creator of the project said online. “The focus of the Quilt is to invite children from all over the World to make a wish for Peace.”

“Thanks to everyone who made suggestions and took part in the project,” the principal added.

More than 160 nations have already submitted drawings for the quilt. The project has also received the London 2012 Inspire Mark, which recognises exceptional and innovative projects inspired by the 2012 games.
