Another sure sign that summer is coming are those final, end-of-the-year happenings throughout the school district. Here in SM City San Pablo , the graduation of the DSWD Day Care students has already commence and will run from March 28- April 3,2016.
The DSWD Day care, San Pablo City Laguna will have a total estimate of 4200 students graduating from different barangay this year. Each classroom put together an educational program that teaches 3-4 yr. old kids socialization and the basics of education. SM City San Pablo extends its congratulations to all the young graduates who have successfully gone through an important phase of their first study that lays the foundation of life-long learning.
Our new generations will face a much faster changing world than we did years ago. Globalization, the advent of information technology, and the development of a knowledge-based economy are leading to changes at an unprecedented rate and scale. The knowledge children learnt at schools will soon lag behind the development of the society. In the face of the challenges ahead, we need to equip our new generation to be “life-long learners” and with the ability to “learn how to learn”, so that they can keep abreast of changes and become active and valuable members of our community.
To prepare our children for the future, we need to provide them with the opportunities to develop the generic skills that are needed for them to become a productive members of the society. Apart from knowledge, our children need to develop their skills to acquire, construct and communicate knowledge. They should also be able to collaborate with others, be ready to listen and be creative in their thinking. Most of all, at this early stage of development, a positive view of themselves as learners is the most important benefit we can inculcate in our children.
