Let the battles of colors begin! Every year, the ILLC Community takes a break from its regular schedules with the annual Friendship Cup. It was held on September 25, 2016 at the Mandaluyong City Gymnasium. The program started with a parade and followed by the Torch Lighting ceremony which symbolizes the commencement of the competition.
ILLC commemorated our country’s Araw ng Wika on August 26, 2016, entitled Laro ng Lahi. This year’s commemoration featured Filipino games that children traditionally played in the past. As such, games like tumbang preso, agawang panyo, and a lot of relay games were played. Teachers innovated and modified the games to cater to the dynamic needs of all students. Parents and caregivers cheered the children on as they engaged in friendly Pinoy competitions. The crowd-favorite pabitin was the much-awaited game for our dear MBE pupils. Students shared in an agape of traditional Filipino food and delicacies after the games.
Every year, parents, teachers and staff members come together to discuss matters aimed for the betterment of the institution. Thus, on the 26th of August 2016, the ILLC held its Parent-Teacher Assembly. This event aims to inform the parents of the improvements and actions made by the school over the past year to enhance the overall experience of the students.
With its desire to offer a more inclusive educational experience
to its students, ILLC has revitalized its partial mainstreaming
programs wherein students from the Modified Education Program
are exposed to carefully guided experiences to socialize, play and
learn with their typically developing peers in ILLC’s sister school, the
Academia Progresiva de Manila (APDM). The strategic physical
proximity of ILLC and APDM allows our capable mainstreaming and
inclusion teachers to conveniently assist ILLC students interact with
APDM students who have all undergone age-appropriate sensitivity
training. Through this innovative program, students from both ILLC
and APDM learn to respect, appreciate and celebrate each other’s
differences and diversity.
Once again, ILLC participated in a nationwide earthquake drill on
July 21, 2016. Everyone was familiarized with the sound of the
emergency siren which made it easier for them to recognize the signal
in the event of fires and earthquakes in school. ILLC’s staff and teachers
joined forces and came up with an emergency response protocol that
ensured the smooth facilitation of the simulation. Everyone did their
part cautiously which made it easier to lead the students and enabled
them to cooperate in the said activity. We would like to thank all the
staff, students and guardians for their support and cooperation in
making our school community a bigger, better and safer place for
2016 ANCA Awards. Vancouver, Canada. Our very own
Executive Director, Teacher Archie David, was awarded the
ANCA Community Mentor Merit Award last October 2,
2016 at the World Autism Festival. He likewise spoke about
ILLC and Project TEACH, a community-based rehabilitation
program he co-established with the local government of
Mandaluyong City. Moreover, through a benchmarking visit
in Vancouver’s Sunnyhill Hospital, one of the leading and
most comprehensive pediatric facilities for children with
special needs, Sir Archie gained rich insights about the
center's referral system from early childhood to adulthood
vocational placement programs.
