The organizer of the workshop Ms. Ginger Palma Arboleda is also the administrator of the website Manila Workshops. This year 2013, they will start of the year with an educational seminar for caregivers. In one of Special Education Philippines’ posts we mentioned the importance of support of the guardians and adults living with the child with special need. Here in the Philippines, that is usually the yaya or caregiver especially if the primary guardians are working parents.
Manila Workshop is organizing a one-day training for yayas and caregivers of children called “OK Ka, Yaya Ko! Below are details about the workshop:
Thanks to BrokenMindSet.Org, Special Education Philippines will be attending another seminar for teachers entitled Teacher’s Recess: INFLUENCE… A Passion for This Generation.
According to the posts we have seen online so far, this seminar is geared towards educators who would like to hear updates on educational statistics of case researches, participate in focus group discussions and listen to inspirational messages from current Filipino leaders. It will be a whole day event that will focus on educators and their influence in shaping future leaders and consequently, their role in the success of the country.
What does Special Education Philippines think about the seminar?
Hello again dear readers of Special Education Philippines, let us welcome you back on this bright, sunny day with our second half of Pitong Pinoy 2.0 winners for promoting children’s education.
Like we said yesterday, if the sole basis is advocating for children’s right to education then this will be our own list of 2012 Pitong Pinoy 2.0.
While looking at the Yahoo News this stormy week, Special Education Philippines was delighted to see not just one but 12 good news amidst all the chaos and hardships the country is experiencing due to the torrential monsoon rains. These 12 good news comes in the Pitong Pinoy 2.0 feature of Yahoo News SouthEast Asia.
Each and every one of the 12 candidates for the Pitong Pinoy 2.0 deserves to be highlighted in their own way. However, since this blog aims to keep abreast with matters concerning education in the Philippines, we are featuring candidates whose advocacy is related in promoting children’s education. Apparently, we found 7 out of the 12 contenders. If the basis is advocating for children’s right to education, then this is Special Education Philippines’ 2012 Pitong Pinoy 2.0 winners.
It took some time to write this post because this is the last part of Special Education Philippines‘ interview with this wonderful, young girl. I am not sure if our paths will ever cross again. I would love to see her perform or accept a medal for the hard work she and the rest of her team has done to reach the Palarong Pambansa. Who knows? Maybe she’ll become one of legendary gymnasts of Leyte? Maybe I might see her in the international arena representing the Philippines? But there’s also the other side of the coin. Maybe I won’t see her anymore.
