New Zealand 21 June 2006: Auckland's North Shore

Today on the North Shore of Auckland we began by visiting Milford Primary School. They sang us a very nice song called "Just One World" which some of the runners said brought tears to their eyes. Seven children from different countries said a few words about world harmony in their language. These children were from Macedonia, Denmark, China, Palestine, Korea, Argentina and New Zealand. The students passed the torch around, making a wish for world harmony. They were very enthusiastic, and one student actually kissed the torch.

The next school visit for today was Forrest Hill Primary. As we ran into the school, all of the students and teachers assembled and formed a guard of honour. They sang us a song called "We Are One" which included an amazing solo by a girl from Iraq. They were very enthusiastic and loud when we brought in the actions to the World Harmony Run song and we had to yell to hear the song above the booming singing and stomping feet!

We then ran to Glenfield to Target Road School. They sang with us very nicely and were very welcoming. After our presentation we went outside and ran with some of the fastest runners of the school. One girl was so fast that our runners were miles behind and dying of exhaustion. After a couple of laps around the field the children came and signed the big world map while the World Harmony Run team stood puffing and sweating trying to catch their breath.
