• Private schools shelve Christmas parties for ‘Yolanda’ victims


    MOST private school teachers have decided to cancel their Christmas parties this year in deference to the victims of super typhoon Yolanda [international name: Haiyan]in Visayas and the allotted money for this event will be donated instead to the typhoon victims.
    Eleazardo Kasilag, president of the Federation of Associations of Private Schools & Administrators (Fapsa), said a simple celebration will be held but there are no kris kringle, no parlor games, no exchange gifts for the teachers and administrators.
    “It maybe lonesome yet the teachers and administrators are contented because that is better than those that have been ‘yolandized’,” Kasilag said.
    The Fapsa head however said they allowed private school students to have their own parties.
    “This occasion [yuletide]is for them [students]. Anyway, most of them have donated, helped in the packing and even volunteered their services,” he added.
