”  At noon the students of  4, 5 , 6 and 7 grades together with teachers ( total 210 people) went in our school yard  and joined their hands to be part of the International Circle of Peace. They sent their best wishes to the world and prayed for peace all over the world.It was the first time we had participated in such activities but it was unforgettable.” Irina Volynets.

Special thanks to  Irina Volynets, teacher of English and the coordinator of telecollaborative projects in Slonim gymnasium 1, Belarus.

We all wish for peace because peace is LIFE on our planet Earth. Everybody has the right to live.We want to see happy, smiling people, the sun shining in the blue sky, to listen to birds’ singing, to enjoy the beauty of nature,… We wish for peace in the world, peace in the family and peace in our hearts.WE are PEACE.

Here is our acrostic poem about peace:
P – peaceful coexistence of all countries
E – equality between people of different nationalities and religions 
A – attention to the needs of others, tolerance and mutual understanding
C – care and support
E – equal relations and harmony  betweeman and nature

Well done to everyone involved from this school. A really powerful message for Peace by All.





The Belarus flag consists of two horizontal stripes, the upper stripe of the Belarus flag is red, and the lower stripe is green in color. The flag has a red ornamental pattern on a white vertical stripe leveled at the hoist. The green stripe symbolizes the future, hope, spring and revival and also the forests and fields of Belarus. The red color symbolizes Belarus’ past and the blood shed by the country men to achieve independence. The decorative pattern on the flag symbolizes Belarus’ rich cultural heritage, its spiritual continuity, and the unity of its people.
