In their own way of presenting the Filipino identity, the students of St. Edward School and the Galing LNC Youth shared with the students of Nadanohama Elementary School in Japan the famous Pinoy dishes and the many community activities that engage families in Lancaster New City.

During the second T3 Sessions last December 2 and 3, the Grade 5 and 6 students of SES presented how Filipino food and snacks are prepared, served, and enjoyed.

The students discussed via Zoom at least four pictures of Filipino dishes that their parents prepared for the week and one actual food. Participants gained interest with the Filipino culture through the presentation of the Philippine cuisine.

Meanwhile, the youth volunteers of Galing LNC shared how leaders and families in the community gather together in the spirit of Bayanihan and volunteerism.

The youth leaders shared the community activities as they define what “MaGALING” (good, excellent) and “MangGALING” (to come from) mean.

On the other hand, Dr. John T. Cabalo, principal of SES, hopes for continued partnership with the NES even after the T3 sessions.

The Japan Student Exchange Activity will continue until 2022 with Grades 3 and 4 joining the sessions.

The activity aims to cultivate understanding of other cultures, improve language skills, and broaden students’ social horizons.
