How Kids Value Valentine's Day in School

by Gil Camporazo

Happy Valentine's Day!

Love may have different definitions according to its purpose, applications as far as lovers are concerned. Love may mean to different people, to different occasion, to different culture, and to different ideology. Whatever, it is, February is considered by many as the month of love, particularly here in our country PH.

The school principal, before reading the cards given him by their thoughtful grade six pupils, cited the three categories of love.

Love is between two opposite sex, the male and the female. They've expressed their love as an affection on how they do care each other and finally join together in matrimony after exchanging "I Dos". They both shall live and till death do depart. In the course of their married life, they've founded a family and a home.

Another category of love is a love among the members of the family. Thus, a home is built where there's love. Children obey their parents and they're nurtured in the admonition of the Lord by their parents. They establish a home wherein a family is believed to be forever spiritually inspired. Members of the family are holding family prayers, going to Church together and having a family home evening to maintain closed ties among themselves.

Last category is the greatest love of all - the pure love of Christ. Jesus sacrificed His life to save every sinner from eternal punishment. He did it without complaining. He did exemplify on how to be obedient to Our Father in heaven by faithfully submitting Himself until it is done.

The pupils of Balabag Elementary School had their own unique way of celebrating the Valentine's Day in a short program held for such purpose.

During their art classes especially the grade 4, 5 and 6 pupils, they took time to make their own special Valentine's card with simple heart art work and with a thoughtful greetings of love, care addressed to their best or favorite teachers and mentors.

Their school principal wasn't spared of this memorable gesture of those pupils. They'd prepared a special do-it-yourself valentine's cards and handed them during the program to their school principal.
