Classes on the Run

Last November 8, we officially started our second semester and while I have only 18 contact hours for three days a week, I find the job lighter than last semester since I have only one subject preparation.

The school however still accepts adding and changing of subjects until November 16 and enrolment can run until Friday next week.

Personally, I find second semester shorter than first semester because of the too many holidays. Specifically, Philippines  has the following national holidays this 2010:

Public Holidays:
New Year's Day1 Jan1 Jan
People Power Day22 Feb22 Feb
Valour Day9 Apr9 Apr
Good Friday2 Apr22 Apr
Easter Sunday4 Apr24 Apr

Our school vacation time shall start December 20  until November 3, 2010.  Then, after this semester, summer vacation shall commence. I am pretty sure students and teacher can only be happier.
