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.
The GS LRC celebrated NCBD with the theme “Basa Mga Kapatid” . The theme aimed to encourage everyone to read Filipiniana books. The said celebration showcased the rich Filipino authored books and how these books can be best enjoyed. In line with this celebration were series of activities, which most students and teachers enjoyed.
The celebration was launched in an entirely different presentation. With Pilandok, a character from the popular Pilandok adventure and Mr. Cadiz, our very own EED librarian as Andres Bonifacio, the launching was made entertaining and informative.
Showcasing the Filipiniana books in different ways enticed the readers to discover and re-discover the Philippine culture and literature.
So the next time you drop by in the LRC take a look, browse and be fascinated with the rich Philippine culture and literature.
