COOK ISLANDS, Avatea School

15 Nov

Thank you to everyone in Avatea School, The Cook Islands for this lovely piece.

“We all wish for Peace because it makes us happy.”

“This is the  winning entry for the Peace Quilt drawn by Alex Nootai in Year 8. He is 13yrs old. He drew the school logo and the Cook Islands flag at the top of his artwork. He used some traditional designs to decorate the wooden seat that has Cook Islands written on and ‘tiare Maori’ gardenia flowers – valuable flowers used for medicines, dance costumes, oils, etc. He also drew hibiscus flowers which is also in abundant throughout the islands of the Cooks.”

Nga Charlie (Ms) Principal

Peace

Peace
is not about anger.
It’s about love.

Harmony
is not about war.
It’s like a dove that soars gracefully in the
air.

And
if you think that you can fight
Then you are not all right.
