Jumpstarting the academic year virtually for the past two years due to the pandemic, the Montessori De Sagrada Familia has once again held an onsite welcome meeting, emanating its strong sense of family. With the theme “All Together: Sabay Sabay Tayo”, the Sagradan teaching and non-teaching staff gathered together last June 1, 2022.
“This activity aims at setting the mood for this new academic year” said Mrs. Maria Cristina S. Silamor, school directress, also emphasizing that “everyone must be on board.” On this day, the president and vice president as well as the board of directors expressed their heart-felt gratitude to the teachers and non-teaching staff for being the front-liners during the trying times brought by the COVID – 19.
The school’s three-year strategic direction was presented by the directress among the faculty along with the key result areas and goals. Likewise, each department’s annual plan crafted by the members of the academic council and student affairs council was shared by the school principal, Mrs. Maria Carmela S. Ong, to the employees. Moreover, the vice principals delivered their messages of inspiration and afterwards introduced the faculty members and the teacher apprentices for the school year 2022-2023.
On the other hand, the afternoon session was spent with a fun team building facilitated by the non-teaching staff. The color teams had to complete a series of challenging tasks, hence forging team- spirit among them. Said activities helped to encourage the Sagradan movers to work together to complete its common goal.
“I am so blessed to work here in MDSF; indeed, it is my happy workplace.” expressed Teacher Vanessa Pascual, ESP Subject Area Supervisor.
