Writing an essay about abortion

A friend of mine sends me a message asking me if I could help her on her school report.  Their teacher gave them the assignment to write on what is their stand on abortion.  And they are going to the debate it on class.  Scared, that is what she told me.  So, she is asking me if I could help her write the essay for her and explain it to her.  I should make it simple for her to express her views on the class in an easy way.  It is not an easy topic I must say because there are advantages and disadvantages on abortion.  And there are reasons why people opted to commit abortion.  Also, I have to cite an example for her to use in their debate.

 I did not promise her to give a good essay but told her to write the best I can do to help her.  Since she got pregnant at a very young age, I made her story the example on the essay.  I am glad that she likes the essay I made, and like my idea of sharing her life story.  The struggle she has overcome when she got pregnant at a young age.  I am glad that I can help a friend and happy to hear the good feedback on my writing.  It has been a while since I wrote an essay.

Writing an essay about abortion is a good thing because I learned things about abortion, why women do commit abortion, reasons of aborting the child, the kinds of abortion and the likes.  It is challenging for me to give the best essay because in that way, I am not only helping a friend but also helping the young once to be responsible for their actions, for abortion is not the answer to avoid the responsibility when they got pregnant at the early age.

Brigada Eskwela 2017

Before the school year 2017-2018 kicks off, the Department of Education conduct this Brigada Eskwela activity at school.  This is an annual program by the Department of Education wherein teachers, parents, students, interested parties, and other volunteers who give their time in this community service like cleaning the classrooms, doing some repairs, painting, and other things that needs to be done before the new school years starts.  This is a long week event wherein volunteers are encouraged to give their time and efforts for minor repairs at school.  Also, the schools accepted donations in kind such as paints, cements, brooms, rugs, lumber and other things needed at school.

This school year 2017-2018, the Brigada Eskwela starts on May 15-19, 2017.  The teachers, students, parents, and other volunteers are busy checking and examining everything at school.  Minors repairs will be done a week before the first day of school.  This program is a good idea because everybody are helping each other to make the school ready for the school year.  We will be able to see parents, teachers, students and other volunteers doing these volunteer works, also called Bayanihan (cooperative jobs).  My brother and nieces are already participating in their school.  They are now getting ready for the enrollment next week.

Wishing her good luck

My niece is in grade 8 now.  She is very excited to come back to school because she misses her classmates and friends.  However, after seeing that she belongs to the first section she is sad and nervous.  She is sad for she missed her grade 7 classmates and friends.  And she is nervous knowing that she belongs to first section.  All of the top students in all sections in grade 7 are now in first grade 8 first section.  I have not seen her this nervous I must say.  Though we do not expect her to be in the top 3, we just want her to her best for we will always be proud of her no matter what.

I can feel the pressure in her after she shared to be her first day of classes and it is not healthy.  I do not want her to feel that way that is why I am giving her my best advice and motivation.  I told her to relax and be calm.  She has to believe in herself and her ability.  Instead of feeling pressure, she has to take it as a challenge.  Her biggest competitor will be her own self.  So, she has to prove to herself what she can do.  Just inhale and exhale so that she can relax and enjoy high school life.  I believe in her and I know that she will shine still because she is determined and has goals in life.  Good luck niece!  Enjoy your studies.  You’re doing great since the day your started your journey in school.  God bless always!

Getting the classroom ready

Before the first day of school, I usually go to school to help my sister in arranging the classroom, cleaning the room and making little decorations welcoming the students.  I have done this since the day she started teaching.  I am her classroom decorator even though I do not know more about decorating, I just put the best art/decoration I have in mind.  Also, I do a little search online to get an idea of a decoration that would catch students attention and interest.  I am happy doing it knowing that the sister trusted me much in doing the classroom decorations.

Today, I went to the school with sister again to do my usual job before the class started.  I did not do much because the old decorations still looks nice.  We just do a little cleaning, and arranging books and some papers.  Luckily some parents are helping in painting the doors and chairs.  It is really nice to see people are helping each other in preparing the school.  Also, feels really good that some parents give their time to help.  The sister appreciate it a lot.  Her classroom now are so ready for the first day of school.  Good luck to my sister for the new batch of students!
