The student body, alongside with the guidance
and assistance of the publication team—Ad Altiora, has gathered as one in order
to showcase their utmost gratitude and appreciation towards the hard-working
educative teachers and staff of Don Bosco Technical Institute Victorias on
October 5, 2020. Despite the current situation of having everyone’s interaction

There was also a celebration prepared by the
end of the day in commemoration of their hard-work and effort for the past
weeks of initiating the online class. In the midst of today’s ongoing crisis,

waters of the new experience of online learning and have been optimistic when
serving the students with quality education, their patience stretched along
with their consistency in bringing forth their lessons. It is evident to see
that both sides of the educative community are going through difficult times in
serving lessons and to also learn, the students are further adjusting to the
new schedules and routines while teachers are paying off to think of methods as
to how they will lay out their lessons to the students. Though, despite that,
the teachers still manages to light up a flicker of hope; hope that everyone
needs to have during the ongoing crisis.

difficulty, it is definitely not impossible to learn and be enlightened within
our homes, in the middle of this pandemic. It all depends to every individual’s
belief and way in tackling the situation. With that, teachers may as well be
considered as the students’ little candle of hope, warm and comforting for
everyone to have.

“The capacity to learn is a gift; the ability
to learn is a skill; the willingness to learn is a choice.” —— Brian Herbert.
