As a unique feature of this school year, a lot of preparations will involve planning and designing instructional materials for the ONLINE teaching on the part of the Teachers, while the coordinators will be busy in the supervision and making sure that the lessons are well-prepared and apt for the children’s level. All persons involved will undergo technological training and must be well-prepared in this challenging tasks ahead.

The day started with a prayer with the theme “Giving with whole-hearted Generosity” led by Mr. Patrick Bugay, Pastoral Ministry Coordinator. A warm welcome address and general orientation was given by Sr. Nelida Peñaflorida, the new Legal Representative of the School.

Mrs. Daphne Peñalosa, Coordinator of Guidance Program, facilitated a “Feeling Check Activity” which is a simple debriefing of the experiences of the participants concerning the ECQ and being under “lockdown”. This was a meaningful and vital sharing of the actual situations, their feelings and the impact of this pandemic on their lives, and most importantly, how they were able to face so far and will be able to face these challenges as the pandemic will indefinitely be with us until a vaccine is discovered.

The last part of the morning session was the presentation and a detailed explanation of the revised Vision-Mission of the school by Mr. Eleazar Solas, the new Principal. He made it sure that this vision-mission was clearly understood by involving everyone to share their take of it. It was an enriching experience for all as this vision-mission is their reason for being.
