Yesterday, hubby and I attended the Parents-Teachers Association meeting. We were excited to meet other parents and our son’s adviser for the school’s special program – Engineering and Science Education Program or ESEP curriculum.
The meeting started with a transparency report about the centralized P.T.A. financial status and achievements. Majority of the projects focused mainly on cleanliness and security in and outside the campus.
We were also briefed about the following:
- School Rules and Regulations – the do’s and don’t for the students. I was overwhelmed on how the teachers speak and reach out to parents to help them mold and develop our children’s personality and social behavior.
- Child Protection Policy – we were informed about the enforcement of the anti-bullying law and how the school will handle and resolve issues of bullying under the supervision of the special committee that the school created.
- Operation and Management of School Canteens – the school canteen only serves healthy foods. No junk foods are allowed as they strictly follow the Department of Education’s policy. The school also prohibits ambulant vendor inside the school premises.
Then we elected homeroom P.T.A officers and eventually came up with a plan that will benefit our children while they’re in the campus.
The adviser willingly gave us his contact number and encouraged us to visit them at times so we can personally talk issues about our children’s situation or school standing. An act I do appreciate as parent because I believe that molding a student lies not only to the teacher but also to the parents. Our support and inspiration are important to our children in their journey to learn, grow and be successful in life.
