Christmas Gift Baskets for the ETL Night High Scholars

Thank you to ETL Learning for once again making the holiday season extra special for their 10 Night High Scholars at Siena College, Taytay, Rizal.

Every year, for Christmas, ETL Learning would prepare special gifts for their 10 scholars who are now on their 2nd year of Night High School.

Last year, ETL Learning gave them books and board games for Christmas, and this year, they were each given a gift basket filled with food items for a delicious Noche Buena feast for the whole family.

On December 14, Mr. Hector Tagaysay, President of Filway Marketing, and Mr. Lewis Edwards, Chairman of A Better Chance Foundation, visited Siena College, Taytay, to present the Christmas gift baskets to the Night High Scholars on behalf of ETL Learning.

Mr. Tagaysay was surprised by how much the Night High scholars have grown since he last saw them, last year.  Indeed, he could not at first believe that they were the same small, shy, scholars he met last school year.

The 10 ETL Night High Scholars prepared a short program, where they gave a short message of gratitude to ETL Learning, ABC Foundation, and Mr. Tagaysay, followed by a song interpretation dance number.  During their performance, they each went up to Mr. Tagaysay to give their individual thank you letters for ETL.

While the scholars were enjoying their snacks, provided by Siena College, Mr. Tagaysay chatted with them, trying to get to know them better.  Mr. Tagaysay encouraged the Night High scholars to speak in English as much as possible to improve their skills, and in turn, they asked him questions (in English) about his work, and Filway Marketing.
