PAREF Woodrose School at Ayala Alabang Family Event
At Paref Woodrose School, the school year will not be complete without the “Family day” event.
I am glad I was invited to see and experience this most-awaited event of the school. I noticed that parents, siblings and even house helpers of enrolled students in this school are really supportive because as early as 8am last Saturday – Jan 28, there were already a lot of them in the school grounds.
Students were wearing costumes in 4 different colors: Red, Blue, Yellow and Green and I have noticed that their families were also color coordinated based on where their kids belong to.
The Yellow team and The Blue team were busy practicing, so we did not bothered to ask them to pose for a picture.
I was betting for the Yellow team or the Red team.. The Blue team had a very nice costume though and the Green team had a nice dance move, but the judges needed to deliberate first but unfortunately, we had to go after lunch so we could not wait for the announcement of winners.
After that, we went to the Flea Market.
Here, Parents donated some stuffs that the school could sell.
I bought different toy cars for my son and he was very happy to see it when I arrived home.

We then had the opportunity to learn more about the school and why it is different from other schools out there. During the discussion, a video was presented to us.
I found out that Woodrose is the first school established by PAREF (Parents for Education Foundation),a non-stock, non-profit organization of parents. Woodrose also pioneered home-school collaboration and the mentoring system in Philippine education.

We had the chance to ask some questions to the members of the faculty, students and even the parents were also there to answer.
I observed that the students with us during the discussions were very smart.
Chiqui Agoncillo a fourth year student said that they also have socio-civic organizations where they learn to interact and help different kinds of people. So when they go outside Woodrose, they are confident to face the challenges and meet different kind of personalities.
Ms. Delia Udani, Executive Director of PAREF Woodrose said that children greatly benefits on the home collaboration and mentoring system. In this system, there is one assigned mentor that is intimately concerned and involved to each student. They assist the kid on every aspect of his life, which helps them grow as a matured person.
Parents said that they knew from the start that when they enrolled their daughters here that they need to be cooperative with the school for the kids’ sake and not just to drop them off at school and let the school teach moral values to their kids. This home collaboration system actually helps them to become better parents.
Honestly, if we have the resources and if I will have a daughter in the future, I will enroll her to this school.
If you are near the area and want to give the BEST for your daughter and have the resources then you might consider enrolling her to this school.
