Ever Art and Essay Contest!
The Intercultural Dialogue Institute is an internationally recognized organization whose primary goal is to help bring communities together to promote compassion, cooperation, partnership and community service through intercultural dialogue and conversation whose mission of encouraging the study of the global communities’ cultural traditions from the vantage point of respect, accuracy, and appreciation is exhibited through such efforts as the Peel Region Art and Essay contest amongst numerous others.
We were proud to have eight talented Glenforest students as finalists in this contest whose theme, “Who’s my neighbor”, inspired them to explore their relationships with those around them and to celebrate their diverse cultural backgrounds as well as their own rich heritage.
Our students and their parents were treated to a gala dinner at the Mississauga Convention Centre amongst such illustrious company as Tony Pontes, Director of Education, Deep Saini, Principal of University of Mississauga and Rosey Edeh, the anchor and host of News at Noon amongst many others!
