“The family is the centre of life and it is the key to eternal happiness.”- L. Tom Perry
Global Family Day is celebrated on January 1st of every year. This day is celebrated as the global day of peace and sharing. Class 5 students discussed the importance of spending and sharing time with their family members for a day. They talked about the UN General Assembly’s declaration in 1997, which was based on the theme, ‘One Day of Peace’. Students highlighted thought provoking ideas like,
‘Focusing just on our family is selfishness,
Focusing on Global Family is humanity.’
Two meaningful songs added to the significance of this wonderful theme. A special Family Trivia was conducted, which involved the entire class to answer questions pertaining to their families.
“Being a Family means you are a part of something very wonderful…. It means you will love and be loved for the rest of your life.”
