HOLY CHILD Celebrates World Teacher’s Day
“A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops.”
– Henry Adams
The COVID-19 Pandemic changed how we do things naturally. Different sectors were greatly affected by this shocking health issue. Education in this time of pandemic has been challenged in all sides.
Regardless of how things change, it never stopped us from celebrating even the smallest victories we have! Life must indeed go on. Education never stops.
This year, as we celebrate WORLD TEACHERS’ DAY we give tribute, honor and recognition to our teachers who tirelessly give their best in the midst of pandemic. HOLY CHILD College of Davao is one with the world in celebrating this feat.
Last October 5, 2020 several activities were prepared to celebrate this annual event. Early in the morning, Teachers had their Zumba DANCE CHALLENGE led by the MAPEH teachers. Light snack was then served after the Zumba dance. At 9:00 AM, everybody attended the Online Devotional and Fellowship led by Pastor Tom Arellano of Victory Church Davao. They also attended a Webinar entitled “PRESS ON: Moving Forward in the Midst of Pandemic” by Sir Francis J. Kong.
The Faculty and Staff also received free FLU vaccine from the City Health Office led by Dra. Joy Villafuerte. The vaccine was administered by the Health Services Office led by Aldith Caneda, RN, and her staff. Several departments also prepared their food products and merchandise enjoyed by everybody.
The fun and excitement continued in the afternoon as Teachers in all levels competed in the Cheers and Yells, Videoke and Isayaw Mo Dance Challenge. Special prizes were also raffled that day. The grand prize which is a mini iPad 4 was won by the Values Subject Coordinator, Juvelyn Estrella-Auxillo.
Indeed, it was a day of fun and celebration! No pandemic will stop us from appreciating the works of our dear teachers. Things might change the way we usually do it but life must go on! Teachers continue to inspire and affect eternity. Their influence never stops!
Happy World Teachers’ Day!
