The Xijen Supreme Student Council prepared a surprise program last October 7, 2013 to celebrate World Teacher’s Day. It was a most heartwarming program as students read tributes, gave tokens and did a parody on their teachers. The program made the teachers realize the importance of the role they play in shaping the student’s future.
Teacher Maura expressed her thoughts on the celebration:
“The message read by Ms. Marj Balusdan has deeply touched me that’s why I also made her cry when she saw my teary eyes… I never expected to be praised from having to scold the Second Year Computer Secretarial students during their classes from me. I take this opportunity to thank you from the very bottom of my heart the sincere and gratitude you gave and I hope that what we (instructors of Xijen) taught you will always be a stepping stone in your future employment and life. Thank you also for sharing your stories, anecdotes and concerns which made a big contribution not only to our school but to the community as well. “
