28 OCT, 2015. Six St Louis Schools in Nigeria and Ireland recently celebrated St Louis Day and International Day of Peace.
Most St Louis schools were still on holidays on St Louis Day, which occurs on August 25 every year. However, many schools decided to celebrate this important day in the school calendar shortly after their return to school. Many of them also celebrated International Day of Peace, usually held each year on September 21, in an effort to keep the students in touch with the St Louis charism Sint Unum (That all may be one), which underpins the four pillars of St Louis education: 1. Education; 2. Migration, Human Trafficking, Poverty and Land Issues; 3. Care of the Earth; and 4. Ecumenism. The schools that celebrated one or both events were: Louisville Girls Secondary School, Abuja, St Louis Nursery and Primary School, Akure; St Louis Nursery and Primary School, Bida; St Louis Girls National School, Monaghan; Marywood Girls College, Lagos; and St Louis Nursery and Primary School, Owo.
