Dr. Jose Rizal once said, “Ang ka­bataan ay pag – asa ng bayan.”This is true! Every­one plays a ma­jor role in mold­ing the future gen­er­a­tion. The fam­ily has a sig­nif­i­cant duty in de­vel­op­ing the minds of the youth. Since home is the first school of the chil­dren, mem­bers of the fam­ily must show love care and af­fec­tion to every­one. Parents should dis­play pos­i­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics to en­hance the knowl­edge, skills and abil­i­ties of their kids.

Ed­u­ca­tion is an­other in­flu­en­tial fac­tor in the life of a man. It fo­cuses on hu­man de­vel­op­ment. The school is the direct agency for ef­fi­cient ad­just­ment to the en­vi­ron­ment. Schools must be trans­formed to be­come no­ble in­sti­tu­tions of learn­ing.

The role of the teacher should not be un­der­es­ti­mated in de­vel­op­ing holis­tic in­di­vid­u­als. It should be re­mem­bered that there can­not be other pro­fes­sion­als if there are no teach­ers. These ed­u­ca­tors in­deed af­fect the lives of these young chil­dren. Dis­ci­pline is the most im­por­tant in the teach­ing-learn­ing process. This will help the learn­ers real­ize that they are im­por­tant if they are given at­ten­tion, love and care. It helps the teacher to man­age the class in an or­derly and smooth man­ner.

LGUs, NGOs, pri­vate sec­tors and com­mu­nity peo­ple play a vi­tal role in en­hanc­ing the to­tal­ity of the in­di­vid­ual. They must ex­tend their help­ing hands and sup­port our youth. Let these chil­dren feel that they are im­por­tant part of our so­ci­ety. Through this they will be mo­ti­vated to im­prove them­selves.

May these young ones, our future hope bring a brighter to­mor­row for our coun­try. Hope­fully, most of them, if not all, shall serve as an as­set to our na­tion. Our suc­cess lies on them. — oOo— I of San Juan Ele­men­tary School
