“Give your smile to everyone but give your heart to only one.” This saying is popular among the high school students so as part of Jawili Integrated School’s celebration of the 14th National Dental Health Month, JIS teachers, especially the Nutrition and Health Coordinators – Mrs. Jean T. Daroy, Teacher III (Elementary) and Mrs. Vemalyn T. Felisario, Teacher I (Secondary), and MAPEH teachers facilitated activities that will help the learners make their smiles worthy of sharing. These activities also help the learners understand why taking good care of their dental health is a great investment and how they will reap its fruits when they get older. This is to emphasize the theme of the celebration which is, “Ngiping Inaruga mula Pagkabata, Malusog na Ngiti baon sa Pagtanda”.
Dental Health Care was embedded in different lessons in MAPEH, specifically in Health, in English and Filipino subjects as topic in writing activities and presentations, and in TLE subjects through PowerPoint Presentation Making activities.
A Poster-Making Contest was also held on February 21, 2018 in two categories – one for elementary pupils and another for secondary students. The certificates of recognition for the winners were awarded right after the flag ceremony the next day.
Jawili Integrated School continues to integrate dental health care in different subjects to raise awareness and encourage the learners to practice it and share what they have learned in school to other stakeholders.
