Green Meadow School capped its parent leadership summit last Feb. 26, 2018, with an awarding ceremony at the Pedro P. Tenorio Multi-Purpose Center.
Community and Cultural Affairs Secretary Robert Hunter, who gave the inspirational message to about 89 parents who attended the ceremony, emphasized the role that parents play in their children’s lives, saying that parenting is the most important job one will ever have if you have kids.
Hunter said that responsible parenthood ultimately determines the success and happiness of the nation. Parents, therefore, have the responsibility to raise upstanding individuals who will be the future leaders of the community. “You set an example for all of us,” he said.
Hunter reminded the audience of another important role of parents—as teachers. The interest that parents take in the educational life of their child will determine their children’s success.
He thanked the GMS administration and teachers for recognizing the importance of parents as leaders and partners in the educational experience of their children. He encouraged parents to be involved in every activity of the school.
The GMS administration, which recognizes the importance of parents as leaders, presented certificates of recognition and gift packs to the parent-leader awardees.
During the ceremony, GMS president/principal Milagros Songcuan, preschool assistant principal Bona Angeles, and elementary assistant principal Rosalie Habijan gave talks about having safe and happy homes. Parents indicated in the evaluation their interest in attending workshops on Common Sense Parenting, Motheread/Fatheread, and health and safety. (PR)
