Students of Comercial N° 11 “Dr. José Peralta” School in Argentina have submitted these wonderful designs. The first one has been drawn by Camila Gómez   1° 3° T.M. and was voted the piece to represent Argentina by the jury composed of the principal: Gabriela Gramont, the design professor: Sabrina Idaberry and the student: Carla Palermo, who made the drawing in  the 2012 SIPQ.

Camila’s quote reads: “Queremos la paz porque queremos ser felices”

“We all wish for peace because we want to be happy”

The first design above has been done by Aylén Chávez, Bárbara Junco,  Sheyla Alarcón, Micaela Medina, Abigail Namaka, Oriana  Fortuna and Milagros Balbuena  1°2° T.M. 

“Queremos la paz porque todavía hay esperanza”

“We all wish for peace because there is still hope”

The design alongside has been drawn by Bradly Navarro, Gustavo Cabral, Alexis Ibañez and Francisco Quispe 1°2° T.M.

“Queremos la paz porque queremos vivir mejor”

“We all wish for peace because we want to live better”

The first of these pictures has been drawn by Charly Choque Flores and Ricardo Tocón Cardozo.

“We all wish for peace in the world because we don’t want more wars”

The next one is by Heber Barbieri and Thomás González  1°2° T.M.

“Queremos la paz porque no queremos más guerras”

“Peace & love. Unity makes strength”

Then we have La Paz by  Priscilla and Antonella Iabichella  1°2° T.M.

“Queremos la paz para que el mundo sea más tranquilo”

“We all wish for peace for the world to be peaceful”

8The final design has been created by Bárbara Ponce, Belén de María, María Ibañez y Franco Castro 1° 2° T.M.

“La paz exige cuatro condiciones esenciales: verdad, justicia, amor y libertad”

“Peace requires four essential conditions: truth, justice, love and freedom”.

A huge thank you to all those involved and to Paula Burd who coordinated the project for Argentina.

Interesting Argentine Flag Facts:
Argentines call the blue colour of their national flag ‘celeste’, which is the colour of the day sky seen from normal angles of sight.

When ceremonially carried, the Argentine flag and flag bearers are subject to certain particular and elaborate practices set by law and flags are always carried with at least two escorts.

Argentine’s flag bearers usually have to go through a screening process and in schools there is strong competition by students to achieve the honour. Often students with the best grades are chosen to be Argentine’s flag carriers.

Argentina, Comercial N° 11 “Dr. José Peralta” School “Displays the quilt”

Carla y su dibujo-web

Carla Palermo is stood with the chosen design she created to represent Argentinians in the Schools’ International Peace Quilt for 2012. 

Thank you so much  to Mónica Suarez and Paula Burd for going to great lengths to have the quilt displayed in Comercial Nº 11 “Dr. José Peralta” School in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is a long story but one which thankfully has a happy ending.

Argentina,a group with two professeurs looking at the quilt and talking about peace (1)While the quilt was in the school all the foreign language classes went with their professors to see the quilt and talk about peace.

“I wanted to send a big big thank you because we are very very happy with the exhibition of the quilt. More than that!  Many students and professors are very touched by the vision of this peace of art. Our school is a public middle school. It has 700 students more or less that come from different parts of the city and the suburbs. Many of them come from poor neighbourhoods with violence problems. You can imagine the important thing that the quilt is for them. They can’t believe that the design of our school is in the quilt and represents Argentina!  Another important thing I wanted to tell you is that Carla when she saw the quilt  she couldn’t believe her eyes. She didn’t say nothing but she smiled and gave me a big hug.

It was a very very beautiful experience to the school despite the difficulties.  It’s a way to  inspire students and teachers to see that among others we can do wonderful things!  Everybody was very touched by the art of the children and they were surprised by the beauty of the quilt. 

The quilt is golden like peace………..”

Some quotes which two students from the school have wrote.

“We want peace because it gathers all together beyond origin or colour”

“We want peace because it is the way to achieve a balance in our society.”

A huge thank you to everyone in this school, the Principal Mónica Suarez , Paula, all the staff, parents and students. It is so heart warming for the Schools’ International Peace Quilt team to hear Paula’s words and to see the impact of the childrens’ art work from half way around the world. We have been moved and encouraged to see the difference the project can make to the hearts of all.
