Goducate staff in Laguna show their appreciation on National Teachers’s Day

In the Philippines, Sept 5 to Oct 5 was designated National Teachers’ Month for 2016. The theme for this month was “Guro Kabalikat sa Pagbabago”, meaning that teachers ought to be shown appreciation.

On Oct 3 & 5 Goducate helped to show appreciation to the teachers in two elementary schools, one in Puypuy, and one in Masaya. Ever since Goducate Laguna was set up, these schools have looked to Goducate as their partner whenever they had a community project.

For the Teachers’ Day celebration at these schools, Bernard Benedicto, a Goducate community worker, together with and some Goducate volunteers, helped the students to give the teachers a surprise. The Goducate team encouraged the students to write personal thank-you letters to their teachers, and also taught them a song to sing for the teachers. In addition, Goducate gave cakes and flowers to each teacher to show our gratitude for shaping the lives and minds of the students.

These actions led the principal of Masaya to say that in her 30 years of teaching she has not come across an organization like Goducate, which is sincere in its love for the community and always ready to offer a helping hand to the people.
