Play & Learn Community Center Blessing: Rekindling the Hearts of Youth Towards Learning
The newly rehabilitated Play and Learn Community Center (PALCC) in South Daang Hari (SDH), Taguig was blessed last August 23, 2014. The blessing marked the revival of this humble little community school in the outskirts of (SDH), Taguig.
The event became the motivation for former students of the day care center to coordinate and support the Management Board in the administration of the newly reformed school. Prior to the event it was evident that the former pupils happily and eagerly assisted in preparing the community center for its new students by helping in renovating the center and encouraging other members of the community to participate in rebuilding the school.
Rev. Father Mark Emman Sese, the parish priest from the Perpetual Church led the blessing of the community center. The blessing of the Play and Learn Community Center was also attended by SSC officials. To show SSC ‘s strong support, the occasion was graced with the presence of Sr. Celine Saplala, OSB , ISAC Director, Sr. Mary Emmanuel Espera, OSB, COC Director, Sr. Zita Jamisola, OSB, AGSO Manger and Mrs. Marie Merida, College Faculty in the Filipino Department.
After the blessing of the community center, there was a short program dedicated to the commemoration of the legacy and history of the “Paaralang Bayan” that was initiated in 1995. A representative of the Management Board, Mr. Alberto Hipitulan, recapped the timeline of this esteemed community learning institution.
Today, the striving former pupils of the community center, serve as inspiration to the new generation of students that will begin learning on the same cornerstone of education dedicated to promoting quality early childhood education.
