Assumption Antipolo’s commitment to Transformative Education gave the Grade 10 students the opportunity to visit the Antipolo City Special Education (SPED) Center. The visit was a fruitful interaction with their students on August 1, for Grade 10 Sections 1 and 2, and August 2, for Grades 10 Sections 3 and 4.
This program was initiated by the Alay Kapwa at Kalikasan Department to promote awareness, generosity, and respect for one another especially for those with special needs. The program started with a prayer including reading of the Gospel and a short reflection given by the Grade 10 students. After which, the students were given time to get to know their partners in an icebreaker activity.
During the performances, the AA girls decided to encourage the students from the SPED Center to sing and dance along with them. Other games during the program include, “HepHep Hooray!”, “The Boat is Sinking”, “Stop Dance”, and “Sing-a-long”. The prizes, including school supplies and extra food, were distributed by the Grade 10 students. The interaction ended at 11 in the morning when the students of SPED and AA bid their farewells.
