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.
This 2nd quarter, the GS LRC features resources about the environment and appreciating our mother earth. We’re inviting everyone to visit the LRC and see the latest collection on this topic.
XS iLRC stumbled upon an article promoting love for reading. This article was written for Reader’s Digest Asia by a Filipino named Miguel Syjuco.
Why does XS iLRC love this article? Other than the pride we felt when we saw it was written by a Filipino contributor, we couldn’t help but agree with his explanations on what books can do for humanity. Read his article by clicking on the link below,

Last May 7, 2010, nineteen middle level administrators (MLAs) along with a few other selected teachers from different departments participated in the Book Selection Activity. This activity happens twice a year – once during the summer and the other during the International Book Fair, which will happen some time in September. The purpose of this activity is for the school to acquire relevant and much needed reference materials early enough.
