Even the scorching summer heat could not stop us from celebrating as we officially launch our newest adopted library, San Roque Elementary School (SRES) Library. The inauguration was held last April 18 with Marikina Mayor Ma. Lourdes C. Fernando as the guest of honor. SRES is AHON Foundation’s fourth beneficiary.
Pupils of SRES were all smiles as they entered their newly refurbished library. Upon admiring the eye-catching mural and colorful shelves and tables, they immediately picked up books to read. Some brought their new books to the storytelling nook and shared stories with their friends; others proudly posed for a picture while holding their favorite books. Parents, teachers, and DepEd and barangay officials also enjoyed watching the kids have fun, as this project is a product of their collaborative effort. Their hard work indeed paid off as the library was well appreciated by pupils and guests alike.
“Masayang-masaya po kami dahil sa wakas may mapupuntahan na ang mga anak namin para makapagbasa ng magagandang libro. Sinikap po talaga namin na matapos ito para mapasaya ang mga bata”, PTCA President Mrs. Dolores Manalo said.
Mayor Fernando lauded the community for their unity and cooperation. She also inspired them to think big and move forward so they can achieve their goal of continuously improving the city’s education system.
The event also served as a pre-anniversary celebration for AHON, which is turning 1 year old this coming May. Expect more things from us as we continue our campaign of building a culture of learning. We have bigger and more exciting projects coming up this year. We’ll keep you posted!
