Youth is that phase of life when you dream big, hope for only the best to happen to you and look forward to a bright tomorrow. It is that phase when nothing seems impossible; you want to be successful and you believe you will. You feel you know exactly what you want from life and you believe you will get it. During these years, life looks bright and beautiful. You feel you can win the world. It's an important phase in your life - youth - when you turn into someone different. Turning from a child to an adult is a transition - a big transition. There's added confidence, added responsibility, there's growth, there's life - a new life. It's when you begin to understand yourself, discover your potential, know when opportunities knock your door and dream of only success. It's the time to reinvent yourself and redesign your personality. And that's where education has a big role to play.

is the best tool to bring a positive change in society, to develop a generation of responsible individuals and contribute to the development of good human beings. The fundamental purpose of education is to gain knowledge, understand the forms of proper conduct and acquire technical competency in specific subject. Education serves as the means to develop oneself physically, mentally and socially. In that, our government gives their full support in education last February 25, 1985 through a Presidential Proclamation No. 2399 it designated the second week of December of every year as Education Week. Department of Education (DepEd) celebrated Education Week nationwide with the theme “K to 12 Basic Education Program: Engaging Stakeholders and Communities Forward” last December 10-14, 2012. The program was started with a simultaneous Flag-Raising Ceremony at exactly 8 o’clock in the morning. After the ceremony Mrs. Lea de Jesus (K-12 Coordinator) discussed the K to 12 Program and cited some advantages. After the discussion she asked some question in order to know if the pupils understand K to 12. Then Mrs. Marian Robles (School Paper Adviser) announced the first distribution of school paper and explain the importance of having a newspaper in the school. In addition, a bazaar was organized at G.L. David Memorial Elementary School, AVR showcasing outputs of pupils from Kinder – Grade VI. A division Fun run for education was also conducted last December 7 as Pre-Education Week Celebration, immediately followed by a simple team-building, activity of the teaching and non-teaching staff at Mrs. Ramos residence.

Moreso, special awards were given to deserving teachers who served the institution whole heartedly and without expecting anything in return. Among the awards were – Best classroom, Best in Attendance (June – Dec.), Most Punctual, Most Industrious, Most Obedient and Most Serviceable. A certification of recognition was given to them. Lastly, a gift-giving sponsored by BPSU-NSTP was a highlight of this affair. School supplies will be distributed to Kinder – Grade VI pupils during the School Christmas Party come December 20, 2012.
