The Laguna Hills High School PTSA sponsored the Peace Pole Project which was dedicated to promote peace, tolerance and inclusion. Students celebrated with Peace essays and song.

The PTSA members believe strongly in the value of diversity and hope this to be a visible sign and reminder to everyone in our school community that peace at Laguna Hills High School is the focus.

Thanks, this was a great success.

A peace song I composed with the peace message, “May Peace Prevail On Earth ” was sung by all.

Amongst the issues we discussed, was the 2016 International Day of Peace, inclusion of the peace message, “May Peace Prevail On Earth” in the state program and for him to become a member / adviser of WPPS in Nigeria, which he accepted.

We need your prayers for more successful plans in Nigeria for WPPS in 2016 and in the future.

At the end of our meeting, the deputy governor took a photograph with the group.

Press coverage in both print and electronic is now going on.

Attached are a few photographs and more to come when the photographer and videographer submit their work.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to contribute my little quota for peace in this regard.

May Peace Prevail on Earth.

Sincerely,

One of the Society members, a headmaster,  already planted a Peace Pole on his school campus and offers advice & help in a circular.

The Waldrose Society also suggests that the schools hold peace prayers in various languages and with various religions.

At the Peace Festival in September, the schools will give a short presentation on how they organized their school peace event.

The World Peace Prayer Society-Europe Office now sends out various translations of MPPOE both on a Peace Pole signs or per email.
