Symposium on Anti-Bullying Act of 2013

Bullying is one of the problems we face in this day and age specifically, in educational institutions. Both schools and workplaces are much more aware of the potential for bullying, and usually have plans and policies in place to manage it. With this, the DWCU organized a Symposium on Anti-Bullying Act of 2013 with a theme: “The DWCU Community Advocates Peaceful Learning to Learners: No to Bullying”. It was facilitated by Mr. Marione A. Cayabyab. The said affair was held last August 14, 2017 at St. Michael Gymnasium. The symposium started with an opening remark given by the Principal of Elementary Department Ms. Carolina T. Sayapen. The symposium was divided into three sessions and there is a one hour allotted time for each session. For the first session the participants were the Grades 5, 6, 7 and 8 St. Bernadette and St. Cecilia. While for the second session the participants were the Grade 8 St. Agnes, Grades 9 and 10 St. Francis and St. Joseph. And for the last session the participants were the Grade 10 St. Arnold, Grades 11 A and B, Grade 12 and the College students.

Mr. Marione A. Cayabyab starts the program with an activity that really captures the attention of everyone. He shared his ideas and knowledge about the Republic Act 10627 Sec.II. Or the Anti-Bullying Act of 2013. He encouraged every single learner to avoid bullying. As what he said on the said affair, “We are losing our identity, our relationship to God and to other people, and our dreams as well when we bully someone.” He gave emphasis on how do we manage bullying in any form of it. It is truly a remarkable day for the learners and educators as well since it is refreshment for them and to think that bullying is not good. At the end of the said affair, Mrs. Joelita M. Bernabe together with Mrs. Marissa Sanchez was tasked to give the certificate of appreciation to Mr. Marione Cayabyab.

Classroom Management Workshops

for DWCU Educators

DSC_0076In the utmost desire of the educators of DWCU to deliver quality education to the learners, a classroom management workshop was organized for them. It was facilitated by Dr. Reynald Mamasig, a DWCU Alumnus Batch ‘85. The said academic activity was held last August 11, 2017 at the DWCU Conference Hall. The workshop started with an opening remark given by the school President Fr. Ibay, SVD. He said, “Classroom management styles of teachers can be depicted along two dimensions (Baumrind, 1971): type of control exercised over students, and degree of involvement of teachers with students. Furthermore, in his welcome address, Fr. Ibay mentioned about the authoritative, the authoritarian, the permissive, and the indulgent style of classroom management.

DSC_0108Dr. Reynald Mamasig shared about the importance of creating and establishing an engagement with the students to have an effective classroom management. He encouraged the educators to employ varied means/style of greeting the learners to establish a connection with them. He said that learning is fun when there is participation and contextualization of the different concepts and strategies employed. The speaker also reminded the educators that they have a mentoring role and not just imparting knowledge. With this word, He said that teaching is an unconditional concern, it exudes meaningful sacrifice, it is impactful and paradoxical. He also emphasized that teaching needs to have vision, inclusivity, community and emotion (V.I.C.E)

Fr. Venerando Yator, SVD the DWCU Campus Minister was tasked to give the certificate of appreciation to Dr. Mamasig.  Mrs. Marlyn Laroco, the High School Principal  thanked the facilitator. She reiterated the value of having a vision before entering into the classroom and likewise the relevance of transforming the classroom as a class home to easily facilitate classroom management and ultimately to achieve quality education for the learners.
