                                                           In July, the Department of Education led the whole nation in the celebration of the 30th National Children’s Book Day. This is in support of the Ten Point Agenda of the Aquino Administration, to promote the “Every Child a Reader” Program. Based on this school year’s theme, our school held activities like Storytelling, Shared Reading and  “Book sa Sulok .”

          On July 16, we held a culminating activity with the School wide Araw ng Pagbasa. Here, children READ aloud to others from a favorite book, GIFT a child with a book, SHARE their love of books and BROWSE in a library. A winner in Story Telling, Jana Golda Vichuaco of V – SPED shared her stories before all the students from Grades I to Grade V.

          We also conducted Storytelling, Book Making and Shared Reading Sessions in the lower sections of each grade level in coordination with the pupils of SPED and section 1.  This activity also served as our outreach program. Officers and members of the SPG also assisted us in undertaking this outreach program. 
The programs and activities helped strengthen students’ love for reading and further their communication skills.
