Students Make Pinwheels for Peace

EUGENE, Ore. — Local elementary students will be planting pinwheels for peace.

Each student at O’Hara Catholic School made a pinwheel with messages of peace and attached it to a pencil.

At 1:15 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21, more than 520 pinwheels will be placed in the school’s front lawn.

O’Hara first started the project in 2005.

“I think they are learning to interpret peace in their own minds and being able to express it through art. They’ve had such a wonderful time doing it year after year and sharing it with millions of student across the world,” said Tammy Conway, O’Hara Principal.

Pinwheels for Peace is an international project. Last year, more than 3.5 million pinwheels were spinning at 3,500 locations.
