The GS LRC joined in the celebration of National Children’s Book Day from July 17-24, with the theme “Laging Bago and Mundo ng Libro”. Various activities were held in the library to promote reading among the students. These activities include a Shadow Puppet Play of the classic “Si Pagong at si Matsing”, a Book Trailer Contest, Lunchtime Storytelling, and an author visit. Adarna House shared their talented storyteller and author Ms. Weng Cahiles and Mr. Bryan Anastacio for some of the activities.
Ms. Weng Cahiles, author of ” What Kids Should Know About Andres and the Katipunan”, met our Gr. 5 students and shared some surprising and interesting trivia about Andres Bonifacio and the Katipunan.
The week long celebration was full of fun and excitement for our students.

Last May 9, 2017, the Jesuit Basic Education Commission – Library Media Centers (JBEC-LMC) Consortium was launched in the Ateneo de Manila Junior High School Education Media Center. It was attended by the Xavier School librarians of both GS and HS Learning Resource Center together with the other librarians of Ateneo schools all over the Philippines. This consortium of librarians aims to share resources and best practices between its members, review the different issues and concerns of a school library, and promote professional development. After the launching, the consortium conducted a seminar-workshop titled “Disaster Management and Recovery Plan for Library Media Centers”. In light of recent events, this training wishes to prepare the librarians in managing emergencies and disasters.
As another school year begins, let us first recap what the GS LRC has been up to during the 2nd half of the previous school year. Check the video below:
Once again, the GS LRC recognizes the members of the GS Xavier community who frequently read and borrow books in the library. During the general assembly last February 7, 2017, students and teachers were given certificates of recognition for the 3rd and 4th quarter reading awards.
Congratulations to the winners!
The GS LRC volunteered to assist in the Aeta Outreach during the Xavier School fair last February 5. The staff even performed a theatrical play titled “Si Dindo Pundido” as part of the program. You may watch the video of the play below:
As another quarter came to an end, the GS LRC once again gave recognition to the top borrowers during the general assembly last November 16, 2016. There has been a new set of Junior Reading Idols except for Scott Atienza, who remains the top borrower among Grade 3 students. There is even a tie among the Grade 6 students who borrowed the most books. Sections 3-G and 4-F retain their crowns as Reading Champs, the class with the most number of books borrowed for the quarter. To round it up, there are new winners for Rookie Reading Idol, Mr & Ms. Book Lover as well. It will be interesting on who will be the next winners of the LRC Reading Awards.
