“Parents must know the equal rights and responsibilities of young people and constantly remind their children about it. This way, there will be no discrimination against young and old, poor, rich, abled and disabled, and every women can then be treated fair and equal in every way, ” Ms. Lea Castillo, RVED teacher, shared in a statement.

Ms. Monica Abaya and Mr. Sherwin Bagon, College department Social Work faculty members, served as the Masters of Ceremony who introduced the theme, while Sr. Mary Celeste Yuzon, RGS, warmed everyone by her welcoming message. Her message was followed by a video presentation that showcased the different female leaders in the history of St. Bridget College.

Sr. Loilo emphasized women’s empowerment, and the importance of celebrating International Women’s Day by presenting the history of the said celebration in the world, and in the Philippines.

In her said speech, she showed the different female leaders of the World, emphasizing German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President of Taiwan Tsai Ing-wen, and New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern who are both notable for their responses on the COVID-19 pandemic.

The said webinar also encouraged everyone to protect and promote women’s rights while recounting the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women; furthermore, Sr. Loilo invited everyone to participate in the Orange the World Campaign.

Sr. Loilo continued to empower womanhood by presenting successful women who were known in their respective fields like the different female CEOs in businesses and leaders who served in various branches of government in the Philippines including the country’s two Presidents, two Vice Presidents, and two Chief Justices.

With all these being said, Sr. Loilo deepened the webinar by explaining various laws and policies for women in the Philippines, and how it is being violated even by some government officials.

Celebrating its 108th Foundation Online

VIRTUAL CELEBRATION

St. Bridget College celebrated virtually its 108th Foundation Day on February 1, 2021.

The said celebration was anchored in the theme “Cherishing the Past, Celebrating the Present, and Braving the Future.”

It started with a live-streamed mass at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception with Fr. Angel Pastor, parish priest, as the presider.

In his homily, he explained the long history of St. Bridget College through the globe-trotting mission of the Religious of the Good Shepherd Sisters at that time. He likewise emphasized the importance of SBC to the lives of the students, faculty, staff, and alumni; and reiterated the theme for this year’s celebration.

FACEBOOK VIDEO

After the mass, an almost 30-minute video was live-streamed on the Facebook page of the St. Bridget College Senior High School department.

In the video, messages from prominent school administration officials and students are being shown. School officials who gave their messages include School President Sr. Mary Clare Bagot, RGS; Sister Sr. Mary Celeste Yuzon, RGS; and SHS Principal Dr. Dolores Borras. On the part of the students, a Grade 3 student, Sophia Grace F. Balido, gave a message focusing on thankfulness to God for the gift of technology.

According to Sr. Celeste, “There is so much to thank God for, particularly this year, as we continue staying afloat amidst the current situation,” and “SBC remains focused, flexible, and faithful to its vision and mission in the midst of this pandemic.”

Meanwhile, Dr. Borras on her part gave an overview of the theme: “Our theme hopes to capture SBC’s strong foundation in God’s providence in its past.” She also mentioned SBC’s launching of the “Missio ad Gentes” of the Philippine Catholic Church.

In her message, Sr. Clare stated that “This blessing of another SBC Foundation day is a great manifestation of God’s favor. We have been loved and have been encountering this God in our daily affairs. During this pandemic period, God has truly sustained us by His love, mercy, and compassion. The Church calls us to continue the mission and influence the future. May our school patron saints, St. John Eudes, St. Mary Euphrasia, and St. Brigid of Ireland, intercede for us.”

A video of the virtual tree planting activity, known as the “Tree Planting and Dedication Activity” was of the one prominent highlight of the celebration where 108 Bridgetine families planted their fruit-bearing trees at available spaces.

“We spark hope in the middle of this pandemic through our tree planting and dedication activity,” as stated by Grade 3 student Sophia Balido.

A rendition of Carlo Magno’s “We Give Our Yes!” by the ICAP is also featured.

Meanwhile, various memorable moments of the institution in its 108 years, in pictures, are also featured in the video.

On different social media sites, the hashtag #ProudBridgetineat108 was used to highlight the virtual festivities of the celebration. Some SBC alumni changed their profile pictures with the [email protected] frame along with the hashtag #ProudBridgetineat108 to show pride in their alma mater as it celebrated its 108th founding anniversary.

“The role of parents in this time of pandemic is really very important in the well-being of their children. Parents need to be involved most especially in their education. Attending parenting sessions would be of great help in knowing about how to raise their children especially their teens and adolescents. This kind of session would inform them of the things they need to do and should do throughout the development of each member of their family,” Mrs. Rona Manalo, the guidance counselor in charge of the event said in a statement.

Mrs. Manalo added that attending in this kind of webinar and event can help parents improve their sense of competency and efficacy when it comes to dealing with different situations and improving their parenting skills.

In the said webinar, Sir Mimo gave three parenting tips to the parents such as being kind to themselves, using their power of choice, and being a loving presence among their families. The webinar aims to spread awareness and knowledge about parenting to a lot of guardians, especially in the midst of online class and this pandemic.
