INTERNATIONAL DINNER AND SILENT AUCTION

International Dinner 2017 PosterThe Faculty of Education will hold its Annual International Dinner and Silent Auction at 5 PM on Sunday, 26-Nov-2017. Chef Emily Wells, of The Mill in New Glasgow, will again work with the 39 BEd students who are planning to complete an international placement in one of 14 countries! Some of these students will be in an Indigenous community abroad.

This event is a fund-raiser  to assist the students with the cost of their travel and accommodation costs as they are personally responsible for covering all of their expenses.

 

Tickets may be reserved by emailing Carolyn Francis at crfrancis@upei.ca or by calling 902-894-2813.
