Happy Teachers' Day!

October 5 marks the "World Teachers' Day" celebration which started since 1994. Its aim is to mobilise support for teachers and to ensure that the needs of future generations will continue to be met by teachers.

According to UNESCO, World Teachers' Day represents a significant token of the awareness, understanding and appreciation displayed for the vital contribution that teachers make to education and development. *

The Department of Education (DepEd) issued Department Memorandum 352, series of 2010, to mark World Teachers' Day. Education Secretary Armin Luistro called on private and public elementary and high schools to give recognition to Filipino teachers who help mold the minds of the future generation. **

Various presentations were prepared by the students, after which the teachers received flowers, chocolates and gifts. As a school treat, students were dismissed early and the teachers enjoyed a hearty lunch.
