“St. George School proudly presents the art work of Mary Liang to be part of the Peace Quilt for the Summer Olympics 2012 in London.
We would like to extend our most sincere gratitude for allowing our students to be part of such an important event and message to all the world. We firmly believe that these types of educational projects also serve a lesson in civics and the need for Peace during times of conflict throughout the world. I would like to thank Mr. Mauricio Benavides, Head of the Art Department for all the guidance he provided to the students during this project.
Once again, thank you for considering St George as a representative of the Dominican Republic and the values we share.
Valinda Valdez, Director of International Projects/School Development”
Well done to Mary whose quote reads: “We all wish for peace because it is a state of mind in which we can all accept each other as equal.”
A huge thank you to all the students who took part and to Valinda Valdez for making it all possible.
Dominican Republic Flag Meaning:
The blue in the Dominican Republic flag stands for liberty; the colour red for the fire and bloodshed of the struggle for independence; and the white cross symbolises the sacrifice of the people.
