LiBro’s A Giving Living and American Corner’s Thanksgiving Outreach Activity

The DLSU Libraries and the American Corner Manila, in cooperation with Philippine Normal University Library and Information Science Alumni Association (PNULISAA), organized an outreach activity for the pupils of Ricafort Elementary School (RES) in Brgy. Tungkong Mangga, Sitio Ricafort, San Jose Del Monte, Bulacan last December 5, 2014. Said school, according to the principal, Mr. Christopher B. Albino, mainly thrives on “bayanihan” (cooperative endeavour) of the parents, teachers and the students.

A total of 109 enthusiastic students from Kinder to Grade 3 participated in the activities conducted in two simultaneous sessions. The first one, with those in Kinder and Grade 1 as participants, was facilitated by the American Corner and PNULISAA while the second session for Grades 2 and 3, was facilitated by the DLSU Libraries’ Outreach Team.

The Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a national holiday in the United States and is celebrated every fourth Thursday of November to commemorate the harvest festival observed by Pilgrims in 1621.

In partnership with PNULISAAthe American Corner Manila prepared fun-filled activities for Kinder and Grade 1 pupils who were very much delighted as they dance, sing and listen to a story-telling session. As Thanksgiving literally means the “act of giving thanks” the children were also asked to do a modified version of pass-the-parcel where they formed a big circle and passed around a box of goodies until the music stops, and whoever gets the box also gets a goodie and gives it to his/her friend and the recipient will have to say “Thank You.” The passing of the box lasted until everybody gets his/her share of the goodies.

LiBro: A Giving Living

LiBro (coined from the words Library and Brother) is a regular outreach program of the Libraries which aims to help spread Lasallian education through the conduct of fun and exciting educational activities.  For this year’s program, the theme “A Giving Living” revolved around generosity, coinciding with the Christmas season which is basically about giving and sharing.

The children were asked to participate in the Shoe Game and Pass-the-Parcel providing for a fun and exciting way of introducing the concept of generosity and that it does not only mean giving away money or gifts but that it is also about sharing time and talent with other people.
The day ended with a gift giving while the kids enjoyed the thanksgiving snacks especially prepared for them.
