Five-day full and rich experience for ZNHS West teachers

PDFPrintE-mail

The Department of Education envisions of continuously improving itself to better serve its stakeholders. This is one of the reasons why Zamboanga National High School West (ZNHS West), spearheaded by its newly installed principal, Dr. Maria Pilar N. Gregorio, held its 5-Day School-Based In-Service Training for Teachers at Aristocrat Chinese Restaurant, the school campus, and Monte Verde Resort, respectively, on October 20-24, 2014.

 

The faculty and staff of the school has undergone sessions on K-12 Assessment Principle with Ms. Anita Tagadiad; Teachers’ Attitude Towards Work with Rev. Fr. Filmore D. Calibo; and, Child Protection and Welfare Bullying with Atty. Florencio M. Liong Jr., during the first and second day of the seminar. These sessions are like refresher lectures to teachers, since this has been taken in several seminars beforehand; but however, instil fresh ideas and realizations to teachers in their undertakings in dealing with their students and co-workers.

 

The third and fourth day of the seminar were spent at the school ground – teachers had sessions with their respective departments, with respective focused topics that each department heads decided on discussing as what teachers of each department deem of learning or reviewing further.

 

The 5-day activity concluded at Monte Verde Resort with the Induction of ZNHS West Faculty Club new set of officers; and could be considered exhausting but entails a lot of fun, team building activities, which gave way to teachers of a big school, the chance to have an acquaintance event between the erstwhile and newly-hired or installed teachers.

 

Such activities are being undergone by teachers of public schools every year, and at times post pessimistic point of views with complaints that the semestral break of public schools is only a break for students but not for teachers. On the other hand, it is always been said, that learning is a lifelong process and the in-service trainings are part of the process. Hence, these events contribute for the betterment of faculty and staff of every educational institution by making way for a time to retreat and look at what awaits ahead.

 

Dr. Gregorio concluded the activity by posing a challenge to the teachers and staff of the school to bring to fruition the knowledge gathered from the five-day experience through the increase of the schools Mean Percentage Scores (MPS) for the National Achievement Test (NAT) and less number of drop-out students.
