NCBD 2017

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.

Xavier School LRC becomes part of the JBEC-LMC Consortium


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.
