School activities again and that means I have to get up early on a weekend. I also need to go with Ruth to finally see how good their school’s performance was when they won in the Literacy Month Poem Reading Contest last October 3, 2008. It was a happy winning for the school and the students who performed were congratulated.
Today is Cainta’s program for their Plan Towards 2015 titled Local Government Plan to Achieve the Millenium Development Goals. As part of the program all government officials and teachers were invited to join and watched the program. Chosen schools were chosen to give a valued performance and being the champion in the poem reading the group was invited to render a repeat performance of the piece that they’ve won early this month. I sensed some pressures on the part of the trainor as teachers,district supervisor, government officials, dignitaries and Mayor Mon were there to watch them.
With practice and best efforts from the students and trainor they’ve delivered the piece clearly and with conviction. I saw Mayor and his foreigner guests smiling as they watch the children rendering ‘The Bells’ by Edgar Allan Poe’. Actually I was also smiling by myself forgetting the nervousness I’m feeling earlier. I’m always like that when one of my kids is performing lol! Here’s enclosing some pictures of them.
