An APDM Christmas Carol

The Academia Progresiva De Manila had its very first Christmas program on December 19, 2014 with the theme, “An APDM Christmas Carol." The pupils from the Preschool and Elementary Departments rendered different kinds of Christmas presentations. They also showcased creative Christmas costumes which made the pupils more adorable. After the Christmas program, each class also had their exchange gifts and enjoyed sharing delicious food. This activity not only allowed the kids to unleash their talents during the program, but also to learn the value of giving and sharing. This is another real-life learning opportunity for the pupils wherein they were taught how to express their love and generosity to the people around them without forgetting the real reason for the Christmas season – Jesus Christ who was born to fulfill His mission – to seek and serve the least of our brethren.

World Teachers’ Day

Who is your hero? People consider different heroes in life. For some, they may opt to say that their teacher is their hero. It is very humbling for the teachers to hear someone say these words. Thus, the Philippines had a month long celebration for our unsung heroes with the theme, “My Teacher. My Hero.” from September 5 – October 5, 2014. The Academia Progresiva De Manila culminated the National Teachers’ Month and celebrated the World Teachers’ Day with an intimate program inside the school premises. The school administration prepared simple yet fun teambuilding activities and sumptuous food courtesy of the Abelardo’s Diner. These heroes who celebrated the World Teacher’s Day may oftentimes be underappreciated, but they find sufficient fulfillment to see their pupils learn, live with good character, and find their purpose in this world.
