Great Britain 22 June: Greenwich

It was bright and fresh this morning as we made our way to the first school of the day, St. Alfege and St. Peters. This was to be the first of an action packed day of school visits.

There is nothing like the cheerfulness and enthusiasm of children to get you going in the morning. As soon as they see the World Harmony Run torch it captures their imagination and they are always full of enquisitive questions which, of course, we are always happy to answer.

The School Principal also joined in on the fun.

We ran a short distance to the second school, Meridian School,where we played some games with the children. The boys did a short play using a frisbee which all the children got great joy from.

The School cooking crew were eager to hold the torch.

The torch was then passed from hand to hand by each child. Each face lit up with joy as they held the torch. Some even did a dance.

After a visit to our third school, Sherrington primary we had time to relax for a while in a near-by Park. We enjoyed a lunch and Dipika, one of the coordinators, bought us all ice-cream which was a welcome treat. We enjoyed the lovely view of London city from the hill top.

After lunch we ran to James Wolfe school were the school children had gathered in the playground. After all having the chance to hold the torch, the children ran with us to school gates to see us off.

All Saints Primary school was the last school of the day and they welcomed us in to an assembly hall filled with happy faces. Before leaving they sang a peaceful song for us with beautiful harmonies. It was perfect after such an energetic day.

Later that evening in Battersea Park we had the great opportunity to participate in one of the many self-transcendence races organised by the Sri Chinmoy marathon team.

This particular event was a three by one mile relay and there was a pleasant crowd of 150 participants. Arthur, Pierre and Sadanand entered a team and did quite well despite a busy day of events.
