Parents and visitors were their to witness the momentous event of the Search for Mr. and Ms. United Nation. Every time we celebrate we have fond memories to speak out, educational, entertaining, engaging and meaningful activities. Students may come from different cultural backgrounds and traditions but they are unified in promoting peace and celebrating their cultural differences in their multi-cultural schools.

The program started with flag ceremony and a parade of national flags with their national costumes involving all GLDCES students from preschool to Grade VI and accompanied by the drum and bugle corps. After the parade, the Search for Mr. and Ms. United Nation started with an invocation performed by selected candidates in different nations with the song “You raised me UP”.

This year’s theme was “Voices for Human Rights.

She emphasized the rights of every child. The values of every Filipino remain and let the students to be respectful, informed and appreciative of the different cultures and traditions through the world. According to her, living in our country is an obvious way to help broaden our minds and experiences. Being at a school with so much diversity provides all of us with an even richer experience while performing the best in our abilities. The message of our District Coordinating Principal makes us proud how Filipinos are and the hopes of every nation is to live peacefully and build a camaraderie, explore, expose and express of what is the right of every nation. Hence, help remind all of us that our support has the power to shape young lives and build bright futures.
