Field Trip

A field trip is one of the school’s extra curricular activities that allows students to explore nature, to enhance social skills, and to learn more about history.  Places like museums, zoo, economic zones, theme parks and national parks are very interesting to visit.

When I was an elementary student, my school organizes field trips or tour.  Because the school has a huge student population, sometimes the tours are grouped according to year levels.  The trip organizers get car rental services for transportation.  And, sometimes, they provide pack lunches for everyone.  The student pays the trip contribution that include transportation, food, and entrance fees.  I remember we went to Rizal Shrine (Luneta) located in the heart of Manila.  It is one of the famous National Park in the Philippines in honor of our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

I enjoyed seeing the animals at the zoo and playing at the playground in the park.  I also remember we went to Intramuros, also known as the Walled City, in Manila.  We visited Fort Santiago where Rizal was imprisoned during his captivity by the Spaniards.  These are only a few of the interesting tourist spots in the Philippines. Schools back home are still encouraging field trips.

If you are planning to have a vacation in my country, do not forget to see Luneta, Intramuros, and the Manila Zoo.

To Keep The Belongings Safe

Closing of classes is fast approaching back home.  Students cannot wait for summer vacation coming April.  I am glad that our students are doing great in school this year.

The good school environment helps them become more active and focused in their studies.  My niece and nephew, even my sister likes participating in school activities.  They are presently joining the Foundation Week and every year level has a presentation-field demonstrations like folk dancing, group exercise (grade school), and cheering.  Children don’t have to worry where to put their personal things because the school has lockers for kids to keep their belongings safe.

Special equipment like kids lockers are very beneficial to students because they can leave their extra supplies in the school.  They always have to remember to bring the key at all times.  Childrens lockers are the best storage place for school supplies, personal items, and even meals.

A Fun Cebu Trip With My Sister

While waiting for the medical and visa interview schedule notices in the mail, I went home and spent time bonding with my family which I haven’t done in a long time since I left the province to study and work in Manila.  My then fiance was very generous in providing funds for my traveling.  I appreciate his thoughtfulness so much.

One of the wonderful trips I had with family was the getaway in Cebu with my younger sister.  It was her first visit in Cebu.  The province of Cebu is in the Central Visayas Region.  It is located Southwest of Leyte.  Transportation to Cebu can be taken by air, land and sea travel.  Domestic flights schedule is very convenient.  The best for us is riding a ferry or a small passenger vessel.  There are few passenger vessels operating to-and-fro Cebu.  Most popular is the SuperCat.  It runs fast across the Philippine sea bypassing Camotes Islands and arrives Cebu in about 2.5 hours.

My sister and I stayed at the Crowne Garden Hotel in Lahug.  The room rates are cheaper than others.  We had fun shopping, going to the movies, and hanging out.
