[Press Release] Teachers support DEPED’s simple Christmas celebration – TDC

The Teachers’ Dignity Coalition (TDC) echoes the call of DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro to celebrate Christmas in schools in simple and meaningful ways. The secretary reiterated the strict observance of the DepEd Order No. 114, series of 2009 signed by the then Secretary Jesli A. Lapus.

TDC Chair Benjo Basas said “We are one with the DepEd in reminding school officials and even teachers that Christmas Parties should not be compulsory and expensive.  We may unwittingly teach the children to become materialistic. Christmas should not be a season of commercialism but rather of good values- sacrifice for the common good, love for others and sharing of blessings.” #
