ENABLE DREAMS TO TAKE FLIGHT: TCAPS 17TH COMMENCEMENT EXERCISES

The Children’s Ark Preparatory School marked another period of successful achievement as it held the 17th Commencement Exercises.

The event — graced by guest speaker Ms. Ellen Rojo Galo — was held at the Don Antonio Clubhouse last April 1, 2017. A momentous occasion in the lives of our young students and a time to recognize the outstanding work of our staff as well as the parents.

The Children’s Ark Preparatory School upholds strong emphasis on being part of our community here in Don Antonio Heights. We believe a sense of community is very important to the future of our nation and our children.

This year’s theme “Enable Dreams To Take Flight” centers on the importance of encouraging children to dream and thrive on discovering; to interpret their goals as to their dreams.

We are confident our young graduates are very well-equipped to take on the next part of their educational lives. They have strong foundations and we feel very assured that they have learned many priceless lessons and that we have given them a great start in life.

To the graduates, we say: take on challenges, be God-loving, go for more learning, serve the community, laugh and be all that you can be.

New Beginnings

There’s one valid reason why we call these convocations and graduation ceremonies “Commencement Exercises.” Graduation is not the end, it is the beginning. Last March 29, 2011, TCAPS officialy ended the schoolyear 2010-2011 with a commencement exercises dubbed “The Graduate:  A Partner Towards Transformational Society. An Answer To Societal Change.” It was the end of another learning period for the Grade Six studes as well as the Preps and the commencement of a graduation to another of their level of education. A new beginning for the kids of The Children’s Ark Preparatory School.

The event, held at the Don Antonio Heights Homeowners Association Clubhouse, was graced by Dr. Zenaida Asidao from the DepEd together with TCAPS President Atty. Danilo B. Vargas and anchored by Teacher Giselle R. Cecilio.

One of the highlights of the event was the oral address by Valedictorian Ohmer Bautista and Salutatorian Shaine Cariño who were both acclaimed for their outstanding efforts and success in their academics.

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

Just what is a schoolteacher: The flight of the learner begins with a teacher who believes, who tugs and pushes and leads the learner to the next plateau, sometimes poking him with a sharp stick called “truth.”
