Giving importance to various languages and cultures that enrich literacy in the world, the Grade School Unit of Claret School of Quezon City celebrated Literacy Day last September 23, 2019.
The day started with a multicultural parade that showcased colorful attires of the South Americans (with the Grade 1 level), the Europeans (with the Grade 2 level), the Asians (with the Grade 3 level), the Africans (with the Grade 4 level), and the North Americans and the Pacific Islanders (with the Grades 5 and 6 levels).
A program followed at the School Auditorium with the talent presentations of the Claretians such as dancing, singing nursery rhymes, reciting poems, storytelling, and doing Readers’ Theater.
At the primary level, some parents were invited to tell stories of different cultures to the students. The intermediate students, on the other hand, listened to alumnus Mr. Lorenzo Miguel Relente on the importance and dynamism of literacy.
In the afternoon, varied activities were carried out such as flag-making, film showing of stories set in different continents, and big book and comics-making. All these activities aimed to help young Claretians have a deeper understanding of literacy.
Aside from the activities carried out during the day, there was also a story museum which was set up along the corridor of each level. All of the said activities to help appreciate literacy were made possible through the Language and Reading Areas headed by Ms. Maria Jobelle B. Formoso and Ms. Almira V. Reynaldo.
