Scuola Elementare di Paderno Franciacorta(Castegnato,BS, Italy)

Teacher Abrami Marilena of Paderno Franciacorta Elementary School applied for tree planting, and it took place on 9th of April. The school started projects on peace a few years ago, and has conducted a number of projects since then.They want children to have a firm belief that wars will not help people grow and thrive, and in order to do so, they have proceeded with the projects associated with the tree-planting.

Originally, they were going to plant the tree in the school yard, but it was actually planted in the park near the elementary school. At the tree-planting ceremony held on 9th April, children, their parents and many people from local groups took part in. They put decorations on a big tree nearby, displaying promises of peace made of cardboard, and celebrated the occasion with music and singing. Already tiny buds sprouted from the planted tree.
