One thing that I have observed is that the public school year is interspersed with holidays and breaks. There seem to be a regular series of holidays to celebrate.
Going to school in the 1960’s and ‘70s, we started school the Monday after Labor Day and went until sometime the week before Memorial Day. The holidays during that time were few.
In the Philippines, they have holidays and special celebrations regularly. I think that must be nice for the children to have a couple times a month on average, to have other activities.
I have seen parades for nutrition, celebrating the towns founding, recognition days, and various other activities.
Some of the pictures are of our children, others are from the local town’s website or Facebook page but it will give you an idea of what can be celebrated.
You will also see that often the school participates along with adult celebrants.
Enjoy these pictures.
