The year 2020 has been full of

challenges to all. The World Bank used

the terms: unprecedented, devastating,

and pervasive to describe what we this

year is bringing us. Yes, we were caught

off-guard to the point that we had to stop

our daily routines; it has taken so many

lives and continues to happen; and it does

not discriminate – no one is safe.

This has propelled all the schools to

transition from the usual face-to-face

interaction to distance education.

Challenging everyone to prepare syllabi

within a limited time frame that were

hardly accomplished due to the

unforeseen events that happened.

Students are facing multitude of concerns:

internet connectivity, gadget availability,

and completion of requirements, among

others.

We are learning a lot from this year.

Regardless of where you are, the circumstances

that we are in made us realize some things we

take for granted before. First, this pandemic

helped us find deeper meaning of the education

system and its delivery. The big question was:

“How to deliver teaching and learning to students

in such a way that they will learn academically

and still keep everyone’s sanity?” We now

realized that interacting with our students in

school brings more collaboration and learning.

Second, our family dynamics have abruptly

changed, but our relationship with one another is

as important as ever. Staying at home with our

family members 24/7 doing everything with them

was not our routine but we had to adjust. We

sometimes get annoyed at each other but at the

end of the day, we are thankful to God that we

are safe with them, that we are together. Third,

small gestures have a huge effect on our wellbeing.

Checking on our friends by sending

messages and doing video meets has now

become a norm. Ask your friends how they are.

Send them messages.

As the Officer-in-Charge of the SHS

department, together with your teachers, who

serve as your second parents, we urge the

students at Trinity Senior High School

department to communicate with us, your

teachers. We may not be able to physically meet

each other at this time but we are looking forward

to seeing each ang every one of you soon.

According to Zig Ziglar, “Your attitude, not

your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

With so many goings on this year, we are

reminded that how we deal with these

circumstances is much more important than what

we can achieve academically. This year has been

our learning curve.

As the year 2020 comes to an end, let us not

forget to thank God for His sustaining grace to

each of us. We are still here. We are still living.

Let us share to one another the blessings of

peace, safety, and understanding.

May the good Lord bless and keep all of you

safe.
