Celebrating Career Guidance Week
The Guidance and Education Intervention Services (GEIS), led by Mrs. Carmela A. Alcantara, has once again taken the lead in celebrating Career Guidance Week 2019. Not only was it another fun dress-up day for the grade school pupils, it was an opportunity to introduce our young pupils to different jobs and inspire them to explore their interests, to bring community members into school to talk about their work, and to mount an exhibit highlighting several notable LSGH alumni.
For this school year, the activity revolves around the theme, “Sixty Years and Beyond: Careers through the Years”. The week-long event dwells mainly on building valuable impressions and general understanding of different professions and the world of work through an array of activities.
A key feature of this year’s celebration is the mounting of an exhibit that draws attention to distinguished LSGH alumni representing different batches. The launching, which took place on September 2, 2019 at the FMAC during the grades 2-6 assembly, coincided with the pupils, faculty and staff garbing themselves with accessories that matched the attire corresponding to their chosen career. Some dressed up as young engineers, physicians, pilots, a religious, a professional basketball player and many others.
A budding engineer, a future PBA superstar, or a member of the religious – our boys’ personal range of possibilities can be endless. With the sense of awareness and understanding that the different activities lined up for the celebration brings, our boys are a step closer to living those possibilities, a step closer to their future careers and lives beyond school.
