The participants were very excited to participate in the walk festival and march for peace together holding colorful pickets and banners.

The principle requested the event to be continued in the future and encouraged students to participate in and spread the movement to other schools and communities.

They also voluntarily appointed three students as student peace advocates to establish peace and spread such messages.

The school commented that the peace walk took place at the right time and right place because youths of today have experienced and exposed too much to violence-related acts than ever.
