The Toronto Minghui School was set up by Falun Gong practitioners in 2001. The contributions of the school in promoting Chinese culture and serving communities won praise from all circles. Five teachers from the school were awarded the Outstanding Achievement Award for Voluntarism by the Ontario Provincial Government.
The teachers in Minghui School are Falun Gong practitioners. Education in the school is based on Falun Dafa and also includes courses on Chinese traditional culture, Chinese characters, classical dance, martial arts, and qigong practice.
Ms. Li Ying, one of the recipients, said, "We wish to introduce the essence of eastern culture through these courses and train students with a rounded curriculum which includes the physical, spiritual and intellectual areas. Student Kerry of the school received a fellowship award from the Canadian Government last year for his excellent achievement."
Students of the Minghui School often perform Chinese dance, martial arts and Falun Gong exercise demonstrations for senior citizens, communities of various ethnicities, and government celebrations. They have been warmly welcomed and appreciated.
MPPs Peter Fonseca and Kevin Flynn, representing the Ontario Provincial Government, issued the Outstanding Achievement Awards for Voluntarism. Dalton McGuinty, Premier of Ontario Province, dispatched a representative to read his appreciation letter and congratulate the award recipients.
