Christmas: The Most Wonderful Time of the Year in the Eyes of the Child
Teacher Mylene Talabis
Casa Class Directress
Christmas is the most exciting month of the year, especially for the Casa Department children. Classrooms and Christmas trees at the hallways were decorated by children’s artworks – from garlands, to Christmas balls, angels with their faces, stars, and many more.
Casa pupils celebrated this season through a gift exchange activity, food sharing, and the much-awaited Christmas Carnival.
At the Christmas Carnival, our cute carolers enjoyed games such as Pin the Nose on Rudolph, Knock Down Cans, Ring Toss, Blow the Christmas Bauble, and the last but not the least… picking their special toy from the Christmas stocking.
This season will not be complete without reminding the children about the reason for this season, which is the birth of Jesus Christ, through a special story told by Teacher Monette Edralin. Children also had the chance to donate their gently-used clothing and toys for indigent recipients via The Philippine Red Cross - Las Piñas Chapter. This yearly donation activity makes our pupils aware of one’s social responsibility even at an early age, to share their blessings to less fortunate persons.
It was wonderful to see the delight in the children’s eyes as they received their prizes and gifts, but what was more amazing was the sparkle in their eyes when it was time for them to give their gifts to their friends and teachers, especially when they handed in their big bags and boxes of donations. Truly, Christmas is a season of hope, love, and sharing.
