SORSOGON CITY (BicolToday.com/10-Feb2-2013) – The spirit of oneness is evident at Sorsogon Pilot Elementary School among the seventy seven strong personnel who engaged the more than three thousand parents to share their time and efforts to realize the 82nd Foundation Anniversary theme; “A Child Friendly, Family Oriented School of Today’s SPES Generation” is a collective responsibility, this was the remarks of Principal Concepcion Domanico who at this early expresses her appreciations to the movers of the foundation activities.
The day of the hearts, February 14 offers a thanksgiving mass for the numerous achievements earned by the school in its un-relenting pursuit of academic excellence.
“Time on Task”, now a credo of public school mentors enabled the teaching personnel of the school to compensate on the loss days due to unforeseen events. Focusing more on classroom instructions achieved provincial, regional and national awards by the school pupils ably coach by their teacher-advisers in mathematics, science, culture and arts, Filipino, hekasi and sports is no longer new to the school, said Domanico.
“The school must be self-reliant” echoed one of the parents, “we should not left the responsibility to the school administrators in sourcing out funds to upgrade the facilities and equipments, we are partnering because we want to have the best public education for our children”. The remark was a confirmation that the parents-teachers relationship is on solid grounds, observed another parent.
“We call upon the alumnus of Sorsogon Pilot Elementary School to recommit a little of their time and other resources in celebrating the 82nd Foundation Anniversary.” They can choose which activity to support, the Family Day on February 15, the 3K Fun Run/Walk on the 16th, perhaps the Mural Painting, a two day affair on the 16th and 17th, or even after the events, they can still contact the school”, the parents urged.
“You see, we are re-integrating family values, the concept of love, cooperation, helpfulness, respect for parents and elders, cleanliness, sharing responsibilities among our pupils” said Principal Domanico, on the part of the teachers, she continued,” they are practicing motherly approach, using stories worth emulating by the young minds of the pupils, they are becoming experts in hands-on style in solving classroom problems among pupils and best of all, the teaching and non-teaching personnel are now role models of the school.” “With the approach, the parents becomes cooperative and more receptive and our teaching personnel never encountered resistance to the policies of the school”, she added.
In closing she said, that the initial success of this years anniversary activities happened because of the solid cooperation by the parents, teachers and non-teaching personnel and that of the community in the division level, they’ve been supporting us. But I truly admire the pupils who never fails to fulfill their “angelic contributions to make the school a learning center for all.” [BicolToday.com]
