Mercy Bells of Mercy College, Mackay Queensland marked the Day of Peace by playing “Peace I leave with you my friends” on bells and chimes at the assembly. A young 14 year old chorister sang the words and then the students joined in. The dedication to peace read as follows:
Throughout the world, bells are a symbol of freedom and peace; honouring our past; celebrating our present and inspiring our future.
The ringing of the bells throughout the word on the ‘International Day of Peace’ reminds us that we all need to dedicate ourselves to working for peace.
