For the month of July, the LRC had various activities as we celebrated the National Children’s Book Day and the Jesuit Heritage Month.
It was during the first assembly in July when the Jesuit Heritage Month was launched. The LRC did an I-Spy Iggy Trivia Contest that lasted for three weeks.
Students from Grades 2 – 6 all lined up to answer the questions for the trivia challenge. The trivia contest was held for three consecutive weeks. Week 1 Winners are Ziv Keh, 4C, Ghabriel Tan, 5F, and Todd Muñoz, 5G. For Week 2, the winners are Zachary Calina, 2C, Jose Mamuric, 4C, and Chen Hua, 5G. The last set of winners are Marcus Ang, 5B, Joshua Go, 6D, and Alexander de los Reyes, 6D. They will be rewarded with a sumptuous lunch at the Jesuit Residences.
Another exciting event for the month was the National Children’s Book Day. The GS LRC celebrated it by having various activities like shadow puppet play, storytelling during lunch time, and the illustrator visit.
Miss Tin Arellano had a storytelling session with the Grades 2 – 4 boys last July 26, 2018. She read the book entitled, “When Zero Left Numberland” by Maita Songco Salvador.
We also invited Mr. Dominic Agsaway, a recognized illustrator in the Philippines to give a short talk to the Grades 5 and 6 boys. Mr. Agsaway was awarded the Alcala Illustrator’s Prize by the Philippine Board on Books for Young People (PBBY) for his work on the book, “Ngumiti si Andoy.”
The LRC also had a shadow puppet play for the story, “Si Pagong at si Matsing.” The Grades 2-4 really enjoyed watching this shadow play during lunch time.
Watch out for more activities from the GS LRC!
