Giving-joy-to-the-young-and-old-2013-8Silay Institute community celebrated the Christmas season by throwing a fun-filled party to the young and old of their adopted barangay, the Gawad Kalinga Village of Dacutan Diotay, Brgy. Guinhalaran, Silay City las December 21, 2013 at Silay Institute, Quadrangle. It was a very memorable day for all the kids, moms and dads, and most especially for the old ones because they received gifts and grocery items from the major stakeholders of the school. Each faculty, staff and some parents sponsored all the gifts given to the children which they truly enjoyed and proudly flaunted to their parents.
Giving-joy-to-the-young-and-old-2013-6Other parts of the program which were actively participated and enjoyed by everyone were the dance numbers from the kids of Gawad Kalinga, animated song and dance presentation from the Children’s Literature class of BEEd III students where they wore different animal-inspired hats like bunnies, tigers, panda, penguins and cows, and the parent-child tandem games.
The joy and the love shared by the whole S.I. community and Gawad Kalinga families will truly be remembered and treasured.
As Joan Marques onced said, “It’s easier to take than to give. It’s nobler to give than to take. The thrill of taking lasts a day. The thrill of giving lasts a lifetime.”
