It’s definitely not a good week to celebrate Mother Language Week. And definitely not a pleasing idea to bring the students to a museum to see an exhibit when it’s snowing non-stop. But the plan was agreed beforehand so we proceeded. Children don’t complain about the weather, anyway. It’s adults like me who are capable of making a big deal of weather condition. I took my first group of students to the Museum of World Culture to see an exhibit of students’ works from respective mother tongue classes. It went quite well since they were only four but taking them on a tram was a big responsibility on my part. Since they were small, I had to ride with them to and from the museum. I was so tired already when we rode back to school but my students were still in full spirits, talking and laughing on the tram. They seemed to be enjoying the whole plan to get away from the classroom. I wish I had the energy as a child’s again.
Today’s group could have been better because my students’ parents came along. But the weather was worse than yesterday’s. I was waiting for them at the kiosk but I decided later to wait for them at the Museum’s entrance instead because heavy snow was falling again. Thanks to sms facility that made my job easier to contact them. The day ended well as expected and unlike yesterday, we had almost visited every room where exhibits were, not just in the Mother Language’s exhibit room.
I don’t have pictures of my students at the museum and even I have I am not allowed to post pictures online without the parents’ approval. This rule concerns all school teachers here so I may leave this post without an image. However, though irrelevant, I did manage to take some pictures while I was standing at the kiosk pretending to enjoy what was going on around.

Actually, I was switching thoughts between to write this post or to write about the danger of snow. Nagkasabay kasi ang mga ito this week. To answer your question, oo, maraming namatay lalo na kapag matigas na ang yelo at mula pa sa bubong. Pero kung snowfall lang ay di naman masakit.
hala, ganun ba yun? e di dapat, iwas iwas ka malapit sa bubong.. baka ka mabagsakan…usually gaano ba katagal yan? One reason siguro kaya walang mga squatters sa mga countries na may snow… if they would be building shanties, malamang matabunan sila…

Ganun na nga, delikado kasi. Ang ibang place may parang fence naman para di malapitan ng mga tao. Ang ibang schools closed last week dahil ni-checked ang condition ng mga ceilings ba. May isang sports centre kasi na bumigay ang bubong dahil sa bigat at matigas na snow, buti na lang di pa nakarating mga studes.
MOther languages week?
Which language are you referring to?
