In commemoration of the United Nations Day, ILLC held its UN Day Program on October 22, 2008. The theme for this year‘s UN Day festivities was entitled, "Beyond Boundaries: Moving Towards Unity". The class presentations gave us a taste of what each nation has to offer. Judges declared Valerie Limcaoco as the Best Dressed Female and Mannix Hashim as the Best Dressed Male. In addition, Class A – Egypt won the Best Decorated Class award. The Dance Club performed yet another groovy number depicting various dances from all around the world. Their number surely delighted the students and parents as well! The finale number was led by the Music Club. While they were singing Michael Jackson‘s ―Heal the World,‖ students from the different classes went out of their rooms to form a human chain at the ILLC gardens.
The beginning of the each school year can never be complete without the Parent-Teacher Assembly (PTA). This year‘s PTA held last Sept. 20, 2008 had a two-fold objective. The first and foremost was to foster camaraderie among the parents and teachers, while the second objective was to motivate the parents to become more active in school projects. The assembly started with an ice breaker called Two Truths and a Lie. The game definitely roused hilarious and even naughty bits of trivia from the parents!
Pabitin, Patadyong and Puto. What do these three things have in common? The correct answer is that we all see them during the Linggo ng Wika! Last August 22, ILLC celebrated the Linggo ng Wika with a fiesta! Students and teachers alike came to school wearing Filipiniana costumes from different ethnic tribes and provinces in the Philippines. The next part of the program was the Palarong Pinoy. Selected students had an interpretative dance number as the Music Club led the community in singing the finale song, Paraiso. Like a fiesta, the ILLC Community became one in feasting over pansit, lumpia, barbeque and different kinds of kakanin!
Was it an animal invasion?! A zoo on the loose?! Nope, it was ILLC‘s Foundation Day! Various pets and animals joined the celebration of Independent Living Learning Centre‘s fifth year anniversary on July 18, 2008. After a heartwarming introduction from Mr. Abelardo Apollo I. David, ILLC‘s Executive Director, Dr. Pineda talked about taking care of our pets properly. Then it was time for the pets to take the center stage. There were countless dogs of various breeds, a rabbit, a huge turtle, hamsters and many more animals! All the nominated pets strutted their stuff hoping to cinch an award or two. Special awards were given to the Best Groomed Pet, Best Pet Costume and Most Exotic Pet.
