OPPS & GSP Outreach: Educational Tour with the Children at Museo Pambata
The outreach program to reach out to others and to be involved in the community has been an annual activity of the OP/PS and GSP.
Last December 13, 2014, 30 children from Gawad Kalinga Onyx, San Andres, Manila were given a chance to have an Educational Tour at Museo Pambata. Spearheaded by the HRD Office and the OP/PS and GSP Officers, the Educational Tour was a new learning experience for the children. They were exposed in the different hands-on exhibits that encourage them to explore and discover various concepts while playing. About 70 OP/PS and GSP volunteers took part in this outreach activity. Thirty of them volunteered as chaperones of the children during the tour.
After the tour, the children went back to St. Scho for the Christmas program and gift-giving. Different committees were also organized for this. The Christmas program was graced by the presence of Sr. Frances Dizon, OSB, SSC President who gave the welcome address and other administrators, Sr. Celine Saplala, OSB, ISAC Director, Sr. Mary Samuelle Formoso, OSB, HRD Manager, Sr. Zita Jamisola, OSB, AGSO Manager and Sr. Mary Emmanuelle Espera, OSB, COC Coordinator.
The fun-filled program showcased the talents of the children. Each of them participated in the different games and received Christmas gift from the HRD Office and the OP/PS and GSP Association. After the program, the chaperones brought back the children to their homes at Gawad Kalinga Onyx, San Andres, Manila.
