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.
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:
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 a special activity for this year’s A-Day, the GS LRC organized a “BooXS to Go” event for the teachers and staff. The LRC staff surprised everyone by bringing a cart full of books to the different workrooms and offices of the school. This gave everyone a chance to borrow them without going to the library.
As an A-Day treat, everyone who participated also got to pick out a surprise gift for every book they borrowed.
Happy A-Day and Happy Reading to Everyone!
