With the S.Y. 2015-2016 of the Senior High School Grade 11 batch coming to an end, the Student Government ended the year with an event dedicated to their teachers – the Thank You, Teachers. The whole faculty of the English and Chinese Instruction for Senior High was invited, along with the College President, Dr. Dory Poa, her guest alumnus, Dr. Raymond Datuon, and several office heads. The event featured an audio-visual presentation (AVP) that showcased pictures, video clips, and messages showing students’ love and gratitude towards their teachers. In addition to the AVP, there were also performances from singers Erika Chan (11-A) and Kimberly (11-D), accompanied by piano performances by Robin Oo (11-F), and dancers Karyna Santillan (11-I), Ashley Chua (11-I), Dhaniella Li (11-I), and Angelah Benigno (11-C).
The main event centered on students’ delivering speeches for each teacher present, making sure everyone was given his/her moment, including Dr. Poa. The event ended with a small surprise, the students’ giving cupcakes and roses to all the teachers. The simple celebration proves that not only on Teachers’ Day do students need to show gratitude to their teachers, but they have to make teachers feel their appreciation through simple gestures as saying “Thank you, teachers.”
