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
