Last August 2016, we celebrated buwan ng wika, in which we had activities that we participated in as a class. It wasn’t really easy for the class since it was the first time for us to have that kind of activity that needed delegation of tasks and coordination with everyone. There were times that we had small misunderstandings and miscommunications with each other. But through it all we were able to pull it off as a class. We performed well during harana, made our classroom well decorated with our hugot lines and did very well in Posturang Pinoy. Sadly we didn’t place in any of the competitons, no banners for the class but im happy to say that we, as a class gained something even better than banners after buwan ng wika which were lessons learned and values gained. We now share a stronger bond and class unity that still continues to grow.
Last December 9 was a very memorable moment. Not just because we went out of school and have some fun, but because we went out bonding with one another as a class. We also love out the famous quote which says “ The family that eats together, stays together” during the field trip. We ate pancit canton together inside the bus, care of Mr. Rodriguez. Our field wouldn’t be as lively as it is without the ever energetic and ever humorous kuya richard. He was our tour guide throughout the field and i was surprised on how he managed to bring back our interest and hype during the field trip even though we were getting bored already.
Our first destination was the national divine mercy shrine located at Marilao Bulacan. There, we had a lot of fun looking at the religious things that has been imparted to us through the influence of the foreigners. Through these things, I could say that our nationalism was also exercised because we were able to appreciate the past. We also saw the different artifacts that imposes a great impact to our daily lives nowadays. Even Though the sun is so hot and the route we walked was far, we still had fun because we learned a lot and most of all we bonded together as a class.
Our next destination was the salikneta farm located at san jose del monte bulacan. There , we were given a chance to meet some of the famous farm animals such as horses, cows,carabaos, pigs, dogs, and even ostriches. Some of us were also lucky enough to milk the cows and plow the field with the carabaos. Through this experience we were able to appreciate the animals and the people who provided us with the crops and things we are enjoying right now such as the rice, corn, milk, and etc. Even though we were caught by the rain and rashes emerged through our skin because of insect bites, we still enjoyed the experience because it is very educational and for some of us it is the first time to experience such activity.
