Great Britain 17 June: Glasgow

It was a wet day in Glasgow.

Good parking :-)

Garscadden Primary (non-denominational) were joined by some students from St. Paul's Primary (Catholic) as part of a special social inclusion program - Sense over Sectarinaism.

The children performed a rousing rendition of a very encouraging song culminating in the children exclaining "You are a Star!"

Positive messages were all over the school.

Teekhnata makes a new friend.

We then headed outside for a lovely run in the rain with the torch.

It was raining the whole day, so we were tempted to take a bus...

Our next engagement at St. Pauls Primary School provided some unexpected excitement.

The torch accidentally set off the school fire alarm and the fire brigade were on hand in a matter of minutes.

Once it became apparent what had happened they were only too happy to hold the torch.

We didn't know that waiting outside in the rain could be so much fun :-)

Mark Adam's from "Sense over Sectarianism" enjoys the day of harmony.

Our photographer Apaguha is joined by students from St. Pauls Primary and Scottstown Primary as part of Sense over Sectariansim.

The BBC was also there capturing the children's thoughts on social inclusion and buidling harmony in the community.

Alison Logan (in yellow jacket) and Mark Adams, from Sense over Sectarianism, join the team.

Meanwhile, six members of our team went to visit the Glasgow School of Sport. The Glasgow School of Sport is an extension of Bellahouston Academy that is set up to offer the exceptional opportunity to train and concentrate on achieving excellence in myraid sports to students who are already outstanding in their fields.

The students very excitedly held the torch that many olympic athletes have held in the past, such as Carl Lewis, Jackie Joiner-Kersey and Paula Radcliffe.

Some oif the athletes point to their outstanding achievements.

Angela Porter (white shirt), the Director of the School of Sport and our very gracious host, gave us an infromative tour. She was very inspiring with her boundless enthusiasm for the program and also for the ideals of World Harmony Run.

Half of the team then made their way to Willabank Primary School where we were offered an incredidle song by the children that all about building one another up. It was so very fitting for the message of the Run.

Shyamala lead the way through our guessing game. The children were sharp and very quickly guessed all our countries of origin.

The children all hold their "torches" as part of acting out our theme song.

One student decided to wear her Harmony Card which shares some of the artworkof the founder, Sri Chinmoy, dedicated to peace and harmony.



Next we had an appointment with the City of Glasgow.

Deputy Lord Provost (Deputy Mayor) Allan Stewart took time out of his busy schedule to meet the team.

Deputy Lord Provost welcomed the run saying, "Events like this are a great way for our young peolpe to have fun, get fit and learn an important message about good citizenship."

We visited the St. Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art - an interfaith museum dedicated to exploring and displaying different faiths.

There are only two museums of this type in the world.

Ali MacAdam, Facilities Manager, met with the team to learn about our experiences on the road.

The team enjoyed some quiet moments to reflect on the underlying spirit which permeates the world's religions.



and Symbols

Some of the museum's cafe staff were happy to hold the torch.

As a grand finale to a spectacular day Adarsha Stephen Kelly took us all out for a delicious Indian Meal.


The World Harmony Run proudly supports the International Year of Youth (IYY) and the International Year of Forests (IYF) proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly.

See the recent Youtube video on African experience which illustrates IYY slogan "Our Year Our Voice"  International Year of Youth - Zambia World Harmony. They surprisingly mention Presidents and UN Secretary-General in a unique way!
