On October 11, six world-class speakers will share their experiences and expertise with 500 educators from all over the Philippines for the first part of this year’s “Today’s Teachers, Tomorrow’s Leaders.”
The final list of participants will be posted on Friday, October 4. These are the individuals who have complied with all the requirements (submitted completely-filled out forms with their official IDs or appointment papers), received an email from the EducAid team, AND texted the number provided in the email reply their commitment to attend.
To get the most out of this experience, the following are guidelines that the participants are highly enjoined to observe:
1. Limit toilet breaks. As sign of respect to the speakers and to really get a lot from each session, teachers are requested not to go out while sessions are ongoing. Toilet breaks are assigned at specific points in the program. It’s not everyday that they will encounter the amazing speakers, so they might as well listen and learn.
2. Observe University rules and regulations. It is through the benevolence of the administration of Ateneo de Manila University that EducAid was able to secure the use of the magnificent Leong Hall, hence, participants are highly encouraged to abide by the rules and regulations of the University. Teachers are expected to stay within the conference venue while sessions are ongoing, in the foyer during breaks to visit the sponsors’ booths, and in the roof deck dining area during the lunch break. No one is expected to loiter around the University especially during the conference hours; failure to abide by this may result in being accosted by the roving guards.
3. Pay P200 for the meal or bring packed lunch in reusable packaging. The Ateneo is very strict in implementing rules for environmental protection, including banning the use of disposable food packaging. In light of this, EducAid will refrain from serving meals and beverages in disposable packaging. Participants are advised to bring tumblers or mugs. No food and drinks are allowed inside the venue and at the foyer.
For the meal, participants can pay ONLY P200 for the meal, snacks, and a very limited, official EducAid baller ID as ticket to the food line and souvenir!
Those who will avail of this option will have to deposit the payment to this BDO account: EducAid Professional Services and Events Management, 390305529. Send a photo or scanned image of the deposit slip to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Subject: “Food payment of (name of participant).” Payments will have to be made not later than October 8, Tuesday. Participants may also opt to bring their own food provided it is in reusable, not disposable, packaging.
4. Prepare to have fun! EducAid’s seminars are incomparable to any other event that participants may have attended before. The teachers are encouraged to just relax, have fun, and more importantly, learn and apply. There’s a reason why those who have attended EducAid’s seminars can’t get enough, and most even become volunteers so they get to experience EducAid’s seminars on a regular basis!
The organizers and the speakers are looking forward to working with the participants build a better nation through better education.
