OLD FOURTH WARD — The Intown Academy, a kindergarten-to-8th-grade school, dedicated a peace garden on Friday, Sept. 20, 2013, to commemorate the United Nations International Day of Peace on Sept. 21.
The peace garden includes a peace pole inscribed with the words “May Peace Prevail on Earth” in English, French, Spanish, and Chinese.
“As a school, one of our goals is to be an International Baccalaureate World School,” Dr. Alieka Anderson, the Intown Academy's assistant principal, said in a statement.
“The peace pole is a tool that our students can use to communicate our emerging love and understanding for all children around the world regardless of race, religion and national origin.
"As a community, our goal is to promote peace and nonviolence among our students and families and to teach our students better ways of solving problems through peace in their neighborhoods and the Old Fourth Ward."
