Students' Highlights

The year’s end always brings with it a tremendous sense of accomplishment. The School Year 2016 – 2017 for Grade 4 - Cooperation class was very productive. So many things have been accomplished this year. From the beginning of school year to the end, our students have been involved in an extraordinary number of activities. Of course, we should not forget the tremendous amount of learning, which has taken place during the year. Learning was made affecting, delightful and experiential. Throughout all of these activities our students have demonstrated great character! Different topics in each subject were integrated and applied in every school activity. Students were taught various concepts in creative ways in practical situations. The eight students got united through the school year; they formed friendships and they shared memories as one family. We look forward to hearing from them in the future and we hope that each of them will have gained a firm foundation for their education while studying at APDM.

Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end. Just like the line of Semisonic’s Closing Time, it is nostalgic that another school year has just ended though it feels like it has just begun – meeting new classmates, building friendships, working together and creating wonderful moments. The class of Grade 3 – Charity is composed of 18 students, namely, Julian, Danielle, Kelly, Penne, Miggy, Angel, Eloise, Josh, Nathan, Antonio, Juan Miguel, Kyle, Jhersey, Nicole, Sam, Hana, Pia and Leigh. Each of them has been an active learner who has exhibited character change through the concepts and knowledge gained. Together, they created a culture of having compassion and helping one another. They generously shared ideas, effort and talents not only in every performance in school programs but also in every team activity in class. This school year has been crucial in establishing these active, fun-loving, savvy, young leaders to become next generation’s responsible citizens, who have love for progress and people, as they were exposed to opportunities that helped them develop charity – benevolent goodwill toward or love of humanity.

A commitment is a promise to do or give something, a promise to be loyal to someone, to love someone, to trust and to be an inspiration, and to make each other happy and contented. It was in May of 2016 when the section Grade 2 Commitment was formed. Their class adviser who got married on the same year also committed herself to this class. She promised to do her best to provide her students enriching learning experiences, to love them like her own children, and teach them to be God-fearing. The students grew to love one another like brothers and sisters. They learned to be thankful of all the things they have now, big and small, to be honest in words and thoughts, to be an inspiration to others and most especially to make their parents proud by doing their best in everything that they do.

Looking for the kiddos who are warm, sweet and cuddly, but also bubbling with curiosity? Meet Prep – Patience! One class filled with outer-space adventures, dinosaur parks and robotic madness is more than enough fun for one school year. Together, Sian, Rjlyn, Sophia, Blair, Enzo, Zoe, Kyla, Zirjan, Zander, Zao, Yosef, Gaettha, Carsten and Symoune went through each lesson in a breeze, and each activity like flames, burning brighter, and better than before. These children have an innate sort of magic that, when put together, gives off an energy that cannot be compared. Truly, they are one of a kind, and out of this world, and a blessing to anyone who will see them.

This bunch of kids gave me this thought, “Am I handling kinder pupils or grade 1 students because they’re very quiet.” Our first week seemed like we were inside a convent. This group of students is so matured and behaved when we are inside the classroom, but of course, are very playful once they step out of the room. Thank you, Kinder Faith, for being good students. Each one of you has made me a better teacher, and for that, I will always be grateful. Teaching all of you was not without challenges, but our class was always full of happiness and love. Thank you for giving me so much joy and for believing in all my tricks! I love you all!

Why does time fly so fast? How did this group of adorable kids grow up so quickly? The first day of class was not the usual getting-to-know one another as most of them were my students last year. Instead of asking their names, I asked them “Hi, how are you? I missed you!” They responded, “Hi teacher! I missed you, too!” Newcomers were welcomed with tight hugs! They are not the only ones who learned but I also learned from them. It’s really good to reminisce how much 10 months gave us such memorable experiences. Surely, I will miss all your hugs and kisses. I look forward to welcoming you back in June. Thank you, my Kinder Joy, for sharing your irresistible smiles. You know much I love you all!
