In 2008, Mano Amiga Academy opened its doors to deserving children from low-income families living in Taguig.
On May 18, 2010, two years after the school opened, Mano Amiga Academy celebrated the graduation of its pioneer batch of Prep graduates. The ceremony was made even more special by the stage that the parents volunteered to construct and design. Several Mano Amiga partners graced the event to partake in the celebration and witness their scholars finish preschool.
After the opening prayer and introductions, the 26 graduates sang You Raise Me Up, an inspirational song they dedicated to God and their parents.
The children beamed proudly as Mano Amiga Academy inc. President Amb. Jose Macario Laurel IV and School Principal Ramon Austria presented them with their diplomas. A number of students also received medals for academic achievement and special awards.
Students in Mano Amiga are provided with 14 years of education (preschool until high school). We look forward to the next 12 years when our Prep graduates finally finish high school, excited and well-prepared to pursue higher opportunities because of the quality formation they received.
Congratulations to Mano Amiga Academy's first preschool graduates!
