In celebration of Teachers’ Day, employees from Metropacific Investment Corp (MPIC) decided to give the Mano Amiga faculty a much deserved vacation by volunteering to be teachers for the day.
Held annually, the Mano Amiga Teachers’ Day OFF celebration gives partners and donors a chance to step into the Mano Amiga teachers’ shoes and to immerse in the school’s learning environment.
The theme for this year’s event is “Going Around the World: Exploring different cultures.” The MPIC volunteers prepared different games and performances to introduce the students to the history, traditions, and holidays of various countries. Activities include flamenco dancing, Origami making, storytelling, and trivia quizzes. The students also had the chance to sample famous dishes from Japan, China, and Spain.
“It is heartwarming to see all the hard work that MPIC employees put into making this a fun and enriching experience for the Mano Amiga students,” Mano Amiga Development Director Lynn Pinugu said. “Through this event, they have demonstrated their commitment to the community. The Mano Amiga faculty and I find their level of enthusiasm and spirit very inspiring.”
