CLARK – On Sept. 21, the International Day of Peace, students from all grades at St. Agnes School in Clark created pinwheels in honor of world peace. Art teacher Lina Crincoli displayed the work of art in front of the school – a sun design made from the pinwheels, representing new hope. The center of the design had a Flag of Heroes in remembrance of Sept. 11.

The Whirled Peace project has over 3.5 million pinwheels spinning in more than 40 countries around the world. It has been a huge success for art advocacy, uniting schools, and communities. “Pinwheels for Peace” is part of anti-bullying and anti-violence campaigns.
