It’s that time of the year again—yep, it’s AMP Fest season!—and the students and teachers are getting ready to show you some fantastic artwork, products, and performances.
For new parents, here’s a little background: Started in December 2012, our AMP (Arts, Music, Peace) Fest was put together to raise enough funds for an extra classroom. This translated into our Green Room, which was built mostly with recycled wood and funds for labor and other materials donated by the school community.
The next AMP was held after Yolanda tore through Western Visayas. For this, we raised 1,000 schoolbags with slippers, towels, snacks, and school supplies for the children in Leyte, Samar, and Cebu.
In 2016, we held a homecoming for pioneer “Blendies” and raised funds for our first Blended Learning scholar.
We’re looking to add facilities for our growing community by next schoolyear, so that’s where funds from this AMP Fest will go. Plans include a multi-media room and at least one more learning space.
AMP Fest 2017 is titled “Love-stuffed: There’s more than enough to go round!” Picking up from our Love Parade last November, we’re celebrating what makes us unique—and that by knowing and accepting who we are, we learn to love and give more. There’s nothing more inspiring than someone who’s true to him or herself, and channels that truth to make the world a better place.
We hope you can reiterate this message to your child, and support this upcoming AMP Fest.
- Buy tickets. We’ll be giving each child 10 tickets for P100 each. Please feel free to order more and bring more guests!
- Become a merchant. Get booth space and sell your items. You can donate a portion of your sales to the school (any amount you think is fair will do!:)) The kids will be making and selling their own products, and you can, too! Just tell us what you plan to sell (please indicate):
