Topics: Education, School
Back in the Philippines where I used to live, education is treasured and young people feels excited and I know the feeling because whenever I attend another day of school I feel happy because I get to learn new things and be able to meet my friends. However, education in the Philippines is hard to get into unless you have the money to be able to pay the tuition fee for a whole year which is very expensive.

This school is a school where I live where Elementary Students (Year 1-6) are educated. They do not have high technology equipment such as Interactive Whiteboards, Projectors or even laptops and computers in each room; instead they have Blackboards/Chalkboards. But even though they do not have those technologies in the class, they still manage to learn via text books and the notes that they get from their teacher. The school do not provide lunch, therefore the students can get out of the school and go to a nearby a shop that sells food and eat there and get back to class after lunch.
The location of the Philippines is an accident prone area to hazards like Typhoon, Earthquakes, Flood and Tsunamis. For example like last year when
Typhoon Haiyan, destroyed my hometown leaving the infrastructures broken and the area flooded. I heard from my relatives back in the Philippines that our house was on the brink of collapsing as the winds were too strong and the foundation was old and the huts and it flooded for days which had the possibility of having the schools closed because of transport problems to school. There may also be a possibility of the school getting flooded as well which will have the high chance of the text books getting wet and there will be fewer resources for the students to learn from.
The locations of the school near where I live are either within the mountain or the foot of the mountain as Dolores, Quezon is also known as The Foot of Majestic Mt. Banahaw, where there are residents like us and my family lives on the foot of the mountain. This also makes travelling hard for the children. If they choose the school of out of town they would have to take the jeepney and spend money to pay the fee, to and from but most people walk to the school to save money.
The children back in the Philippines who have the privilege to experience something like going to school, learning, educating for their future tries hard to be able to reach their dreams. Even some kids are very enthusiastic about getting homework done like myself back when I was in my Preparatory Years. Whenever I get new stationary or text books and new things for school I feel ecstatic about it because I’ll be able to think that I can do better and appreciate the things that I wanted which I think that every student does because they realise that they are lucky to be able to educated at such a young age because there are loads of children in the Philippines that doesn’t have the chance to be educated.
