As a way of showing appreciation to teachers during the month of September, the GS LRC Librarians and Staff, went around the offices and workrooms with a cart full of books to make it easier for the teachers and staff to borrow. Borrowers were able to join the raffle and win amazing prizes.
For Catholics, the month of October is known as the month of the Holy Rosary. In Xavier, it has been a yearly tradition that during this month, the students pray the rosary daily. In line with this, the GS LRC had several activities lined up for the said month.
We had a Mary Exhibit where more than 30 statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary were displayed and collected for the boys to see. Each statue had accompanying descriptions beside it to let the boys know more about it.
We also had a rosary exhibit featuring rosaries from different parts of the world.
Lastly, we had the Marian Quiz Bee where students were asked to answer 8 questions for a chance to win books from Fully Booked!
In partnership with the Grade 1 CLE committee, the EED LRC put up a Mama Mary statue in the EED LRC storytelling area as a way of celebrating the Rosary month and provided a basket where students can write a letter or a prayer for Mama Mary. There are times that the teacher brings her class to the LRC just to pray and teach them about the rosary.
It’s just amazing that sometimes you will just catch the students fervently praying to Mama Mary and writing sweet messages with love and sincerity. Great job Shotis!
As a way of showing appreciation to our teachers, the EED LRC prepared a two day fun-filled activity just for our teachers with the theme “Book Carnival” which happened last September 25-26, 2018. Exciting activities were prepared by T. Ela and T. Liza. One of these was the popcorn and mallows party which the teachers enjoyed the most. Also, they were encouraged to borrow books from the Teacher’s Collection for a chance to play games like Balloon Burst, Dice Game, Ball Roll, and Hula Hoop to win some exciting prizes.
Not only did the teachers enjoy their well-deserved treat, but also got to borrow a book for professional and leisure reading! You rocXS ‘chers!
For A-day, the GS LRC had a special treat for teachers!
Teachers from all departments borrowed their books and hoped they would win. Originally, it was announced that there would be three winners, but because of the overwhelming positive response from the teachers, the LRC decided to give out four Starbucks cards. Below are the list of winners!
Congratulations ‘chers and Happy A-day!
