8th CONVENTION RETURN SLIP: Please bring this with you on February 9

Dear Parents/Guardians, Warmest greetings and incitement from Mindanao International Studies Society (MISS)! The MISS Convention is an annual convention held for three to five days that had been the meeting place of our nation's future diplomats. Aside from the intense and fun training on the fields pertinent to the discipline of International Relations and Diplomacy, the participants also develop amity and collaboration among themselves. th

The 8 Mindanao International Studies Society (MISS) Convention with the theme KALINAW: Deepening Awareness and Understanding on Mindanao and Global Peace, purports the profound desire and necessity for peace in Mindanao and the world. Peace is the central objective in the Mindanao problem and global disharmony. Yet peace is multidimensional hence it necessitates a multidisciplinary understanding and approach. Global peace must also be understood and addressed through local and personal acts toward peace.

I allow my child ________________________________ (complete name of son/daughter)
