The HCCD Student Council, along with the Dean of College, Engr. Ma. Chrystella Suzette I. Velasco facilitated a simple yet meaningful surprise for faculty members in celebration of World Teachers Day.

The student council, college dean, faculty, staff, and students were all gathered in the gymnasium of Holy Child College of Davao Mintal campus, last October 01, 2017, 7:00 pm right after the community dinner was done. When the search for HCCD Ambassador and Ambassadress 2017 was about to start, the dean gave her opening remarks and many were surprised when she gave her sweet reminder about the UNESCO (The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) declaration of the 5th of October to be the World Teachers Day.

Faculty members were called to be on stage. Then the student council showed off the Audio Video Presentation (AVP) dedicated to them. They also serenade teachers, gave them roses of different colors, and a simple token. It was an opportunity for everyone to acknowledge teachers for the significant contributions they make not just in school but in the community as general. We know that being a teacher is never easy and we owe so much to them.

Indeed, it was one of the night’s highlights. Teachers were all happy as students show gratitude to them for all of their hard work and dedication as they continue to strive and contribute to the global framework of needs and requirements needed to build a strong foundation to a more capable and productive future generation.
