Student-made exhibits and learning demonstrations highlighted the return of the festive and vibrant face-to-face events in Montessori De Sagrada Familia during the first semester culminating activities of the elementary department held last November 21-23.
The school-wide event encapsulated the pupils’ learning experiences for the first half of the academic year, as students of different grade levels held presentations and displayed their projects in various spaces of the elementary campus.
For the institution, it was a continued demonstration of its passion and commitment to better learning as the school celebrated the culminating activities of this school year despite the challenges of post-pandemic schooling.
“The first-semester culminating activity was a validation of how serious we are in upgrading the educational services that we give to our learners. It was an indication that all stakeholders- administrators, teachers, students, and parents are one with the vision of making MDSF the learning hub for creativity and innovation,” said Jomar Dela Cruz, Vice Principal for Academic Affairs in the department.
In keeping with its vision of being a learning hub for creativity and innovation, the various grade levels’ teachers planned a variety of exciting activities that piqued the interest of the Sagradan students.
Dela Cruz lauded the efforts of the Sagradan teaching force for making the event possible.
“It was a celebration of the efforts and dedication made by our teachers to produce learners that are creative, innovative, and problem-solvers,” he added.
The school believes that students learn best when they feel what they are learning is both important and relevant to their lives, and the showcase of the learners’ talents and knowledge is an avenue toward excellence.
“It was a manifestation that our learners are capable of doing meaningful activities anchored in real-life scenarios that we thought they cannot do. I am immensely happy, proud, and excited for more activities like this where students are the stars- shining and soaring.”
Earlier this year, MDSF assured the community that it would continue to bolster efforts on making learning more meaningful and relevant for students at a time when student engagement in learning has dropped significantly.
Stakeholders can expect similar activities in the future as the school eases to the new normal of education with its blended learning program.
