One possible good opening would be to talk about Seeds of Peace International Camp held at Pleasant Lake in Otisfield, Maine. Seeds of Peace brings together students from foreign lands with the objective of instilling the desire for peace and the means by which to help achieve peace through leadership in their own generation. The Camp started with the needs of Israeli and Arab youths but now also invites students from India, Pakistan and Afghanistan. In 2003, the Camp opened its invitations to Maine students as well. Your speech could go on to tie student peace summer camps in with education at whatever level you are focusing on. The reference to an active effort at highly focused peace education will give your speech a winning start.

One of the ways schools can promote peace is through character education and the eradication of school bullies. A great way to start a speech like this would be to ask your audience a thought provoking question? If this is the strategy you use, however, make sure you provide them with your ideas on what the answer should be. Never leave them pondering their own ideas because they might answer in their own minds contrary to what you want them to be thinking. This question can tie directly to points you will make about the role of school in peace.

The best way to start this speech would be with an anecdote or example.  I can see you telling a story about the value of education.  You want to begin a speech by drawing your audience in.  Give them a taste of the topic, but leave them wanting more.
