P'lok helps Haiyan victims

Phitsanulok, Thailand.

It started with a post in the FB wall on November 11, 2013.
Many of our "Kababayans" in the Philippines are in most need of not just our PRAYERS but our generous hearts to extend something to at least lessen their suffering. Many of them need FOOD, WATER, CLOTHING, MEDICINES, TEMPORARY SHELTER, etc and since it is impossible for us to hand them these things personally, our CASH DONATIONS (aside of course from our CONSTANT PRAYERS) might just be the best thing that we could offer at the moment. 

For those whose hearts are touched to GIVE...you can hand in your donations to any SNCFC Officers and rest assured that the little amount you may extend will go to a reputable agency (initially planned: SAGIP KAPAMILYA of ABS-CBN) to do the aid on our behalf. 
Little did we know that what was supposed to be a little request of help for the victims of the  super typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines will turn out into something bigger than what we imagined. The post was re posted and shared by the SNCFC officers in their FB wall and in no time, it gained hundreds of likes and overwhelming response. 

Ajarn Wanlapat Suksawas, an instructor at Naresuan University here in Phitsanulok has read the FB post of Letty Comeros, who is her son's teacher in Anuban Phitsanulok School. Ajarn Suksawas then created another post in Thai Language on her own FB wall and mobilized university students to go around the university to collect donations for the Philippines. In less than a week, Ajarn Suksawas and her students were able to hand in to us a total amount of 29, 606. 00 Baht.

When Ajarn Orawan Tagong, the EP Department Head of Chalermkwansatree School learned of the fund-raising activity for the Philippines, she informed the school director of the said project who never hesitated to give her permission to collect donations from the students. The next day, the seven Filipino teachers in CHS including myself were given the opportunity to share about the project to the students and teachers. After saying a few words, the collection started. It was a sight to behold. Our hearts melted seeing the students and the teachers who unselfishly shared for our country. The school director personally handed to us 52, 200 Bahts which we later send to the SAGIP KAPAMILYA of ABS-CBN.

COUNTING. Class leaders count the amount they have raised after the collection.

 The SNCFC set of officers approached Rev. Fr. Prasert Sitti, the Parish Priest of Saint Nicholas Church and School Director of Saint Nicholas School in Phitsanulok, to ask for his blessings for the group to have a little time in the school's flag ceremony to share about the project to the students. Fr. Prasert did not only gave us his permission but his 100 % support to the endeavor. Before we went out from his office that evening, he gave us an envelope containing 10, 000 Bahts. Two days later we went back to the school, most of us with heavy hearts brought about by the heart rending news we got from the grief stricken places that were hit by the catastrophe. As we sang songs for the students, we weren't able to hold back our emotions but we managed to finish the songs that we prepared for them even with momentary sobs. We were even more touched when we received their donation - 10, 000 Bahts from the School Administration, 23, 870 Bahts from the students and 2,000 Bahts from Vincent de Paul Youth Organization.

1000 BAHTS. A teacher shows her love gift for the Haiyan victims. 

BOX. Teachers and students fell in line to drop their donations.

Through the concerted efforts of the Filipino teachers and the administration in the different schools around Phitsanulok and even in the nearby provinces, cash donations and relief goods continued to pour in.

Anuban Phitsanulok School was able to raise a total amount of 35,043 Bahts which was later distributed to their teachers who were directly affected by the typhoon and the earthquake in Bohol. Janokrong School was able to donate 9,831 Bahts while Teeratada School had raised 10,000 Bahts. Meanwhile, the same fund raising activity was done in Rajabhat University - Kamphaeng Phet, Phitsanulok Pittayakom School, Watyang School, Wangthong Pittayakom School and Triam Udom Suksa School of the North (Phitsanulok).

LOVE. Overflowing act of kindness from Janokrong School students and teachers.
JR SCHOOL. A student leader who helped the teachers in going around the school to collect donations. 

The long list does not end here as there were more donations that came in coming from private organizations and concerned individuals that contributed to the total amount raised of 231, 629 Bahts.

To all of those who helped SNCFC in this endeavor - the students, parents, teachers, friends, the people of Phitsanulok and Thailand...

At 9:37 p.m on August 28, Janet Napoles surrendered to President Aquino. Napoles is wanted on charges of serious illegal detention arising from the alleged kidnapping of Benhur Luy.

The President turned her over to the custody of Interior and Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas and Philippine National Police Director-General Alan Purisima for processing and booking.

This is great news but let's wait and see WHAT HAPPENS NEXT...

Isa ako sa mga milyong milyong Pilipino na hindi lang galit kundi poot at suklam ang nararamdaman para kay Janet Lim Napoles. Simula nung una kong mabasa ang kwentong ito sa Philippine Daily Inquirer, araw araw ko nang sinubaybayan ang kwento nya at ng iba pang mga ganid, gahaman  at walang pusong mga pulitiko. At sa bawat araw na iyon hanggang sa inilabas na ng DOJ ang kanilang Warrant of Arrest para sa baboy na si Janet Napoles, lalong nag-aapoy ang aking galit, hindi lang para sa kanya kundi pati na rin sa lahat ng mga pulitikong yumayaman at nagpapasarap sa buhay gamit ang perang galing sa aking buwis.  

Sampung BILYON ang pinag-uusapan natin dito. Hindi pa kasama doon ang napunta sa mga baboy ding mambabatas ng Pilipinas. Kaya pala hanggang ngayon, hindi pa rin makahulagpos ang Pilipinas sa gapos ng hirap at paghihikahos. Kaya pala hanggang ngayon, andami dami pa ring natutulog sa ilalim ng tulay sa Kamaynilaan at maraming marami pa rin ang nagtitiis matulog sa kariton. Maraming pamilyang Pilipino pa rin ang hindi kumakain ng tama sa bawat araw. Maraming bata pa rin ang palaboy laboy sa lansangan at nananatili pa ring mababa ang antas ng pamumuhay ng mas maraming Pilipino. Kaya pala...kaya pala. 

Nandun pala napunta lahat kay Napoles at sa mga anak niya. Pinambili nya ng mga magagarang kotse habang ang mga ordinaryong mamamayan ay hindi makabili kahit mumurahing motorsiklo.  Si Janet Napoles ay bumili ng mahigit dalawampung bahay habang ang marami sa mga Pilipino ay nagkasya lamang sa maliliit na barong-barong sa mga "squatter's area. Ang mga anak ni Napoles, wagas kung magdisplay ng mga mamahaling damit, sapatos, at bags habang marami sa mga kawawang Pilipino ay nagtitiyagang magkalkal ng basura makatawid lamang sa pang-araw araw na pangangailangan.

Hanggang ngayon, di pa rin mahanap si Janet Lim Napoles.  Patuloy pa rin ang pagpapasarap nya sa buhay gamit ang pera ng bayan. Kailan kaya sya mapapanagot sa lahat ng kasalanang ginawa nya sa bawat Pilipinong ninakawan nya?

Sana lang wala nang Janet Lim Napoles na susunod sa yapak nya. Sana lang wala nang PORK BARREL Fund na mapupunta lang sa bulsa ng mga buwayang inihalal ng taong bayan. Sana...sana...

Masisisi mo ba kami kung MAGALIT kami sa PORK?

Finding a Good Physics Tutor for Your Child

Both physics and chemistry are among the subjects that are required to pursue a career in the science field. For this reason, the two subjects should not be sidelined as they form the basis of what might be the career choice of your child. To add on, both chemistry and physics are practical subjects, and their theoretical part of learning should be supported by intensive practical work for easy grasping of the subjects. Parents, on the other hand, might not be in a good position to handle these two subjects while assisting their children, and that's where physics or a chemistry tutor comes handy. Besides, the two subjects correlate and parents are more likely to find combined chemistry physics tuition for their children. So, how is physics tuition important to your child?

To start with, physics is a high level technology subject which is mainly composed of innovative mathematics. Actually, for students to understand physics, they must first have a liking for mathematics. A larger segment of students that hate Mathematics, have also been known to abhor Physics. Consequently, a tutor of combined chemistry physics tuition and other levels of physics must be smart enough to take the physics student back to the innovative mathematics concepts, before proceeding with the physics lessons. On the contrary, physics teachers in schools don't have the time to take students through the math basics to make them understand physics, which in turn may affect the students’ performance in the subject.  

Physics require a creative way of teaching, as well as a high motivation from the teacher. A larger portion of the child's learning process should be based on asking questions, and that is why the less confident students normally fail in the subject. Such a child can, however, be assisted if he or she learns to engage the teacher more by asking questions; or if the teacher can assist the students one by one, and not spend the entire lesson talking to the whole class. A physics tutor can be the best alternative for such a teacher, and you should consider going for one with fewer students.

Sometimes students are given complicated physics homework, and when they start remonstrating about how hard the homework is, then that should come as a hint that they need a tutor. For instance, when tackling a simple linear motion concept, the topic will progress to more intricate segments of the topic as they proceed to free fall and other parts of the topic. A single example handled in class might not be enough to handle everything concerning that particular concept, and the student will need some extra assistance to fully understand the topic. To back this up, ask your children about which tutor they need most, and they will definitely mention a physics tutor if not a math tutor.

If your child is innovative enough and has a strong passion for physics, but a poor understanding of the subject in class, then you should consider getting a Physics tutor for the child. This goes pertinent with other ambitions like going to an aerospace, or having a strong passion to pursue any engineering course, and then a physics tutor might offer the right guidance and motivation.

All these factors play a vital role in mentoring a child to pursue any physics related course in future. Furthermore, parents should be at the forefront of assisting their children in handling Physics subject, and part of the support entails getting them a competent physics tutor.
