I let Ericlead the prayer “Angel of God” as our opening prayer.

This day is our schedule of film showing. Mr. Kazu selected already a film for them. It is about Thomas, the train. The film is about friendship, concern for others, respectfulness and having many ideas to make someone happy. I switched off the light, as if they were inside a moviehouse.


After the film showing, I let the children write in their notebooks what they have learned about the show.


Gabriel lead the closing prayer. At 9:45 am, the children went home.


I thanked C. G who helped me prepare their snacks – popcorn and hamburger.

2nd  Session – Grades 4 to 6

Time: 10:30am – 12:30pm


Attendance: Ava, Jack, Fortune, Dorothy, Rachel, Anna, Lily, Nikky, Charles, Maike


(James is absent today. His mother Evelyn called me at 6:00am telling me that John has a high fever. She will not sell candles because she has to watch over John.)



We started at exactly 10:30am. Dorothy and Rachel lead the prayer. They performed an action prayer song. Everybody performed “The Chicken Dance” as their exercise with Lily and Fortune as the leaders. I was doing the exercise too at the back.


Today is their schedule of film showing. Everybody was shouting that they want to watch a horror movie! I told them if it is okey with them to watch a horror movie all by themselves and Mr. Kazu, M. B who is helping me today and I will leave them. Everybody chorused “Yes”. There was this news last week that 15 children were possessed by demons in their school in Buanoy, Balamban. After that incident, children are recalling what they have heard before especially in Tejero Elementary School. There were ghost stories that everybody was very excited to share them to me. But I told them that Mr. Kazu, Mam Chang and the directors are the ones who choose the film to watch. So I played the “Toy Story 2”. I switched off the light and the children began to love the show from beginning to end. In the middle of the show, I served them popcorn in a big bowl and everyone was sharing the popcorn. Just like they are in a moviehouse. Around 12:00 noon, a Japanese guest arrived bringing gifts to the children. I let them finish the movie and around 12:15, they are delighted to hear from our guest what’s their gifts. Since it was their snack time, we set up the tables. It was then that I let our guest introduce himself. His name is Mr. Tomo. Our scholars bombarded him with so many questions. He explained that he can speak only a little English. But the kids are staring at the plastic bags. When it was turned over to me, I distributed to them right away while they were eating their hamburger and juice. We serve also snacks to our guest, Mr. Tomo and his girl friend and they ate them up. Our guest gave them stationery set(composed of colored pencils, pencils, sharpener, glue, scissors, and pencil box. It has a Ben 10character print for boys, for girls, Sponged Bob and Dora print, for 16 children and 4 calculators for the high school students. And also they brought cakes individually pack from Goldilocks. Everybody was very happy.  They then washed their plates and tumblers, brushed their teeth.


We then had our picture taking with our guest. I thanked Mr. Tomo for the wonderful gifts for the children. I told him that they will take good care of them because it is very useful in school. We sat on the floor with Mr. Kazu and our guests, holding hands and sang the “Our Father” prayer as our closing prayer. It was 12:50pm  already when the session ended. I bade the children goodbye. Our guest also left the office after the session. Anna and Rachel with Fortune stayed a little longer to make their assignments and afterwards at 1:00 pm they all went home.


3rd  Session – High School

Time: 1:00pm – 3:00pm


Attendance: Chloe, Kayla and Ashley.


(Chloe was the earliest to arrive. She arrived at 12:45pm. Kayla arrived at 1:15 so we started the session with only the two of  them.


It was also their schedule of film showing so I played the film “E.T.” After 10 minutes, Ashley arrived at 1:25pm. She was able to catch up the show. She asks questions from Kaylaand Chloe. They told her the show just started. They were thrilled with the story because all of them have not seen this movie yet. The story was about an alien being left by his spaceship because he wandered so far that when the leader called their attention that it was time to leave Earth, he wasn’t to catch up. There are also humans chasing him because they noticed  their spaceship. The movie was very long. In the middle I have to serve them their snacks “Hamburger and juice” while watching. Afterwards, I cook them  popcorn. The movie lasted for 1 hour and 59 minutes! The movie ended at 3:15pm, so I distributed their calculators and snacks from Goldilocks. 


Kayla washed the plates and tumblers while Ashley was busy checking on her new calculator. Chloe, on the other hand was using the laptop to search some goddesses as one of  her assignments. She asked permission because she has no money to pay in the internet shop. At 3:40pm, we left the office. Everyone was happy because they received a gift from our guest. According to them, they were the most  useful gift . They were happy that they will never borrow from their neighbors again.
