Kids' Guernica at Kiakawasoe Elementary School in Japan

May 28, 2018,   A wonderful Kids’ Guernica painting was created by the sixth grade pupils of  Kitakawasoe Elementary School in Saga-city, Japan last year. In the period of Integrated Study, the pupils learned about peace and thought what they could for peace. Their school excursion to Nagasaki gave an opportunity to study about the misery of war and the important value of peace. They thought that they should tell what they had learned to as many as possible and decided to make a Kids’ Guernica painting. The executive committee of Kids’ Guernica led the workshop. After adding all the 94 pupils’ handprints, this peace painting was completed. They wish to express their thoughts to as many as possible.

The 2nd Kids' Guernica at Manila Japanese School in Philippine

April, 2018  
The second Kids' Guernica peace painting was created at Manila Japanese School attached to the Embassy of Japan in Philippine. The sixth grade students visited Baguio City in the northern Luzon island. Many Japanese people were living in this city before World War II. During the war time, some of them had to live very hard hiding they were Japanese. Many of those descendants are still living in this city. The students had an exchange program with those people in Abong and performed their original drama based on Sister Kaino's story. Through this excursion, they learned that they should not repeat the tragedy of war. They thought what they could do for peace and decided to create a Kids' Guernica peace paiting like last year. Each of the sixth grade students made his/her own peace painting and they discussed the suitable painting for a big canvas. After voting, Koharu Tanaka's "Friends Forever" and Miyu Kodama's "Love and Peace" were selected as a main design of the big canvas. Finally, the painting filled with all the sixth grade students' wishes for peace was displayed at the entrance of their school. It conveyed their message of peace to visiting children and parents.
