BHKJOURNAL_2012_0014: The Power of Intercession…

Last week, I was sent by our school (Global Kids Montessori of Nueva Ecija Incorporated) to a two-day training for Video Editing and Production.

I am a Mass Communication graduate so I had a little background already on what the workshop would give to us but I was so blessed and humbled when I learned more during the workshop.

I was so blessed because the main speaker was my former English teacher during my high school days. He gave me a little favor by letting me leave the desktop computer that I brought in his office. I am the only one who brought that kind of computer because the other 66 participants brought their laptops.

I was humbled and I asked GOD to help me bring home an award after the workshop so that the fact that I am the only one who brought a desktop computer will be covered by the glorious award to be received.

I asked prayers from chosen friends during the night so that no expectations will be given to me but still I put pressure on myself to give my best shot and bring home one of the prize.

During the awarding ceremony, I was chilling because of the cold air conditioning and heavy rain plus I am nervous because I thought I would not receive an award anymore until my name was called. I was hesitant at first but when the name of our school was called, my eyes got teary because it was my 1st time to brought home an award for the school I am representing.

Then, I remembered my friends who prayed for me and I can wait to tell them that I’ve won not because I have an advantage for being a Mass Comm graduate but because there were people who interceded for me. Thank you very much guys!

I am proud not because I won the award but I am proud because GOD has shown his power through these mighty intercessors/friends that I have.

To GOD be the glory!

Now, I want to share the video clip that we (GKM Family) have won!

BHKJOURNAL_2012_0012: Irony Journey with Beshy Leads to Destiny…

How ironic that two “snobs” will become best of friends? =)

We never thought that we will get along very well. =)

We don’t usually talk to one another even though she’s one of my brother’s friend. We don’t usually say a simple “hi” to one another but ironically we were sent to one work place for a mission that leads us to the destiny we are in nowadays.

At first, we were the usual acquaintance but ironically the “snobs” found out that we were in the same page. What I mean the same page? We have the same break time, time of coming in and going out at work and we also have the same barangay that lead us to go home together most of the time.

Then, there was one question that I never thought she will ask and from that moment the door has been opened for both of us. The two “snobs” become best of friends. Some might think that our friendship became intact because we do not have a choice as the situations always led us to be together but one thing I know, we have a choice and there were no accidents on all of these. We are destined to be the “beshy” of one another.

Another irony with her happened on June 15, 2012. As I celebrated my 1st full year at Global Kids Montessori of Nueva Ecija Inc., it also marked her last official day as GKM Staff. Then, when we went out, she was even braver to eat in a “isawan” than I do. She even treated me for dinner that time. How ironic?!

One more irony is the fact that she’s the most bully best friend that I ever had but IRONICALLY, she is the MOST SUPPORTIVE one! She supported me through thick and thin (mapa-THICK pizza ng PIZZA HUT or thin crust ng GREENWICH).

Another thing that I appreciate in our friendship is the fact that NO ISSUES can BREAK us APART! =)

Ava, I just want to say THANK YOU for everything. Thank you for pushing me back on TOP and for helping me realized a lot of things. Thank you for all the support and thank you for all the times spent together – no dull moments with you (kahit na walang words minsan hehe – presence is enough). Finally, thank you for running with me in this great race marked out for us.


Let us run this race together with perseverance. We will help each other out through thick and thin!

At the end of this JOURNEY, our DESTINY is to say these words, “We have fought the good fight, we have finish the race. We have kept the faith.” excerpts from Philippians 4:7


BHKJOURNAL_2012_0011: Global Kids Montessori Conducts Parent’s Orientation in NE Mall…

Cabanatuan City – More or less 150 parents and guardians attended the Parent’s Orientation of Global Kids Montessori of Nueva Ecija Incorporated School year 2012-2013 held at the 3rd floor of NE Mall yesterday (June 11, 2012) from 9:00 to 11:00 in the morning and from 2:00 to 4:00 in the afternoon.

The event started with the invocation led by Filipino teacher, Aileen Reyes that was followed by the singing the Philippine national anthem with new Science teacher Ronalyn Morales leading the parents using the 2/2 beat.

In the morning, the Pre-School teachers led the attendees in a warm dance using nursery songs “Wind the Bobbin Up” and the children’s favorite, “Chicken Dance.” The “Chicken Dance” made the parents at ease during the event and it also became their favorite too. The Board of Directors of the school also joined the warm-up dance and enjoyed it.

Events host Libert Ong formally welcomed everyone to the event and introduced the teachers of the school year 2012-2013 from the pre-school department to the elementary level. He also introduced the members of the administrative staff and Board of Directors of the company. While they’re coming up on stage, the song “We are One” by 12 stones was playing in the background that symbolized their unity as a team.

The pre-school department teachers are Ann Kathrine Tagaza and Sally Friginal who are going to serve as Nursery advisers and will be assisted by Imelda Eduarte, Cristina Eclevia will once again handle the Kinder level and will be assisted by Marina dela Cruz, then the Preparatory level will be handled by newly-wed Rochelle Sta. Ana-Balajonda who will be assisted by Miafe Alcantara.

Elementary teachers will be composed of Rio Sebastian (Grade 1 AM adviser), Rebecca Ordonio (Grade 1 PM adviser), Ronalyn Morales (Grade 2 AM adviser), Sally Friginal (Grade 2 PM adviser), Maricel Eugenio (Grade 3 adviser), Aileen Reyes (Grade 4 adviser), Kristine Mendoza (Grade 5 adviser) and Libert Ong (Grade 6 adviser). Another elementary teacher is Paul Kenneth Matias (English 3-6) who was just newly married to the former adviser of Nursery, Manilyn Cawagas.

The administrative staff are Ferdinand Peralta (Maintenance), Maria Fe Tesoro (Bookkeeper), Aireen Trinidad (Cashier) and Rosalie Betuing (Human Resource), and the Board of Directors are Carlota Hipolito (Corporate Secretary/School Directress), Rocky Hipolito (Corporate Treasurer), Jo-Mario Angelo “Kuya Jojo” Matias (Vice President) and Vera Abrera-Borromeo (CEO/President).

After the introduction, “Kuya Jojo” shared a brief history of the company, how it started while the four of them (BOD) were sipping a cup of coffee. He also shared on how the school started with only 40 enrollees and on how it grows year after that makes it 333 as of today. He also discussed the mission/vision of the school with only lies in three important values – Leadership, Character and Excellence.

The School Directress discussed the school policies, addressed some issues and answered some questions that were boggling in the minds of the parents before the orientation started. After discussing all the rules and regulations, she asked the parents to partner with the school so they could work together smoothly all throughout the year for the betterment of the children.

She also announced the expansion of Global Kids as they also got the first floor of Insular Life building to have better facilities and will cater the needs of the children.

Corporate Treasurer, Ptr. Rocky Hipolito discussed the discounts that the children can avail if they have siblings and if they will get high honors. But what excites the parents is the new promos that includes the 2nd and 3rd honors on the discount list and the much awaited 100% discount for the pre-school valedictorian.

President and CEO Vera Borromeo in her turn, she assured the parents that their children is in good school as she shared the training that she and Ma’am Lot attended. She showed that they were part of the International Montessori Society that will give more security that Global Kids is not just an ordinary school.

Before she ends, she also honored the past officers of the Parents-Teachers Association. She also informed everyone that every parent is part of the association. Ms. Vera also made a bold statement that in Global Kids, the PTA is not just an association but it is a partnership.

In the end, there was only challenge they leave to one another – the Board of Directors, Faculty and Staff, and the Parents should work in partnership to DISCOVER each CHILD’s POTENTIAL!
