Train up a child on the way he should go...Tuesday, June 14, 2011
My daughter's school will formally start their class tomorrow, June 15. I attended the Welcome and Orientation Program yesterday. The school principal discussed about the rules and regulations of the school, the calendar of activities for this school year, and presented the teaching and non-teaching personnel, too.
At first I was a bit apprehensive that the school we've chosen, being known as a Christian academy, might infuse religion in their curriculum. However, based on my research, they are a non-sectarian school. The school principal confirmed it yesterday. What they do is to teach the children the different Christian values as well as positive Filipino culture. The most striking part of the school head's PowerPoint presentation, was the Maranatha Christian Academy's philosophy, which is based on Proverbs 22:6 which states that:
"Train up a child on the way he should go and when he is old, he shall not depart from it."
That is also exactly what is being taught to us in our church. We should teach our children as early as we can for them to become better citizens and most of all righteous servants of God.
