Last Saturday, October 5, 2013, The Ping monthly meeting was held in ICI-Kapatagan together with Mr. Michael Maestrado and Miss Kary Jane Vallescas from ICI- Bugo; Miss Beve Kint and Miss Dianne Niez from ICI- Iligan, and Miss Shiela Bulaclac and her staff. In the short meeting, Mr. Maestrado discussed about the School Newsletter Writing and Ethics which involves the ingredients of a school newsletter and how important are those to apply, remimding us that there are also rules in writing. when the meeting was done, pictures are taken and bondings are formed. Then, we go to our separate ways illuminated by a new knowledge.
On October 4, 2013, the SBO, in partnership of The Ping, prepared an event to the fellow teachers of ICI Kapatagan. The programme started with a surprising Invocation given by Mr. Jeffrey Flores, and dumbfounded Mr. Allen Buhion for his inspirational message for the students and for his co-teachers. Then, an intermission number from Miss Rowena Balala and Mr. Ronnie Aliño, sang the song “Salamat” by Yeng Constantino as thanks to all the teachers guiding, molding, and educating us. Nevertheless, a Pingster gave a message dedicated to all teachers on how they are the pillars of their future, but the highlight of the event was the video made by the SBO, consisting each of the faculty’s photos, on which the instructors were astonished about the short film containing their faces. After the laughs and noises, the cake’s candle were lit, another surprise, was given to the teachers. Photos were taken and everybody rejoiced as another year of giving thanks to our educators.
Without our teachers, we would have been lost. We will always be thankful to all their hard work and efforts they have put in for educating us. The best of us, reminds us of them, HAPPY TEACHER’S DAY!
