Celebrating Friendship and Making Memories
APDM had a unique celebration on February 14 – it was our Friendship Day! Each child was able to mingle with others and create new friends. Each class prepared a little gift for teachers, classmates, friends to show love and appreciation of their friendship. From their civilian attire that made them more adorable, delightful food that was shared, and their contagious smiles that truly captured hearts, the celebration was indeed a remarkable one. This year was the first time that the Friendship Day activities were held merging the different grade levels together. As such, students had the opportunity to play with other students from different sections and levels fostering camaraderie and friendship beyond their classrooms. The students’ smiles and laughter in simple things made us, teachers, feel just how lucky we are to be in this profession. It was just a simple celebration but one that yielded unforgettable memories that’s surely engraved in our hearts.

While Red Team Matapang won as the Over-all Champions for this year’s Friendship Cup! Congratulations! At the end of the day, it’s not the number of awards or medals that matter.

May we continue to support one another as we continue to count the years of our fellowship.
Fang-tastic Trick or Treat
The APDM students had a fang-tastic experience right after the relaxing semestral break that made most of them thrilled to go back to school to see their friends and classmates again after a long vacation. On November 7, 2018, the students went around the APDM and ILLC campuses to look for delectable treats hidden in various sections of the school. The excitement was evident in the students’ faces as they came to school wearing their colorful, creative and interesting costumes. Some opted to come in their spooky attire. No one was able to resist giving them treats as they flashed their winning smiles and projected their lovely costumes.
APDM’s 5th United Nations Day Celebration
On October 26, 2018, the APDM Community celebrated the United Nations Day with a theme “A Myriad of Global Cultures.” Each class represented different countries such as Mexico, Spain, Korea, United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, Brazil, France, China and Belgium. The students’ costumes were all amazing! Some chose to wear the countries’ traditional clothing and some picked more modern outfits. They flashed their beautiful smiles as they came up on stage for the parade and performances. Students didn’t just make themselves familiar with the countries’ dances but also learned the different cultures and facts about the countries that they represented.
APDM Community Field Trip 2018 – 2019
Every year, the APDM community organizes an excursion that seeks to provide students with an experience that is equally enriching and exciting. This school year, on September 19, 2018, APDM marks yet another milestone as its students embarked on their first educational field trip beyond the boundaries of Metro Manila. First on the trip itinerary was the Gardenia factory. The students had a chance to not only see the interesting process of how bread is produced and packaged, but they were also able to learn a bit more about the history and inner workings of the country’s leading bread brand. The next destination of the tour was the Galinco factory, where students were able to discover more about one of their favorite snacks – cookies – specifically, Chips Delight. Afterwards, the group proceeded to the most anticipated destination of the day, Enchanted Kingdom! Both parents and students alike enjoyed the picturesque theme park, with its colorful lights and thrilling attractions. Most students and their families spent their time at the park trying out the wide variety of game booths and family-friendly rides that the park offered, while the more courageous few opted for the more extreme rides. As the trip came to a close, students and their families rounded up back at the bus, tired from the long day, but with an undeniable smile still on their faces.
Earthquake and Fire Drill
During a disaster, life-protecting actions must be taken immediately. Having the knowledge of the important things to remember during such alarming and life-threatening situation is an advantage that one person can execute that can both save not only his/herself but also a lot of people. To increase awareness on how best to survive both earthquakes and fires, the APDM organized an earthquake and fire drill on August 1, 2018. Students in all grade levels, faculty and staff were taught how to respond to the complications of an actual earthquake or fire. These drills helped in evaluating how well all parts of the emergency plan work together and how well the students, faculty and staff have been trained. With the right precautions and reminders to everyone in the APDM building, the following drills were a success.
