APRIL 2009: EDUCATION: Treat Times Two!

Reported by: Fr. Orville R. Cajigal, Education Program

Caritas scholars received a double treat by visiting the historical places of Mt. Samat and Mt. Bagac in Bataan on April 18-19, 2009. It was “double” not only because they visited two sites. These youth, together with SHEC’s education volunteers, also had two reasons for being there:

a) Closing party -- time for rest, relaxation, and recreation as they celebrated the end of another successful school year; and
b) Cultural enrichment – an opportunity to revisit important historical events that occurred in Bataan during the Spanish and Japanese eras.
>This memorable out-of-town trip was organized by the Education Committee under the leadership of Fr. Orville Cajigal, RCJ.
