THE PHILIPPINES, Cebu International School

2 Sep

Here we have the colourful drawing received from the students of Cebu International School,The Philippines. Thank you so much to everyone and to Ms Deidre Fischer Superintendent at the school for coordinating the project for this country. This drawing will soon be copied to material and quilted to join over half the World already represented in The International Peace Quilt.

“Just to let you know, the challenge to the kids was to express a design that reflected how we could use the IB Learner profile to contribute to understanding worldwide. In that way, that is how we believe that peace can be achieved … through the development of the attributes of the IB Learner Profile in education.:) ” Ms Deidre Fischer.

Philippine Flag Meaning:
The blue stripe symbolizes patriotism and justice. The red represents valor and the blood spilt for freedom and independence and the white stands for peace and purity. The white triangle represents equality and the Katipunan nationalist organization. The three stars represent the three main geographical regions of the Philippines: Luzon, Mindanao and Visayas. The sun represents independence and its eight rays represent the eight provinces that led the Philippine uprising against Spanish rule.
