The Elementary department of Montessori De Sagrada Familia held its 2nd “Career Guidance Awareness Day,” last March 24, 2023 at the MDSF gymnasium as part of the Students’ Activity Department program. It was spearheaded by Ms. Aira Mikaela Concepcion, Elementary department’s Counseling and Testing Officer who also introduced this culture to the institution.
The programs’ highlight was the students who are wearing the profession they want to be someday, manifesting their future self as early as now. Miss Aira also shared 5 important tips in choosing a career for the lower grade school pupils while a speaker from Victory Church was invited to share the importance of choosing a career wisely for the upper grade school students.
When asked of the significance of building this culture among the Sagradan students, Ms. Aira said that “ It allows the Sagradan students to express themselves, conceptualize their own chosen professional costumes, and help them to have an open discussion of what it means to have a career track. With this, it helps students know their future choices and decision making. The students become more independent and develop their sense of responsibility by being accountable for their actions. The students create a meaningful relationship with the people around them by having collaborative discussions and sharing each other’s opinions and goals in their career.”
The expression of oneself through the costumes they wore and the overflowing excitement and energy of students showed the event’s success after conducting it online in the past year.
