Naw-Ruz means a new day and is not only celebrated by the Persians but also by all the Bahaís from all cultural and ethnic backgrounds, it is also celebrated by our planet earth as the time of renewal and rebirth. The earth is a divine trust much like our children and we wish it a long and happy, peaceful, and balanced life with all its resources flourishing and abundant. May the fragrances of spring fill your life and your soul.
Center for Global Integrated Education and its staff wish all of you a most joyous Naw-Ruz. May you also be infused with a new surge of energy and renewal in all your efforts in educating the children, the parents, the educators, and the global village we are all so fortunate to have in our trust.
As a token of our appreciation for your loving support, we share with you this most springy and joyful song in Persian about Naw-Ruz performed by Shakila a well-known Iranian artist.
