Central Philippine University Elementary School Grades One and Two pupils took delight in a short story storytelling session by Luis “Tito Dok” Gatmaitan, M.D. at CPUES Library on August 27, 2019.
The mini-program kicked off with the warm words of welcome from CPUES Principal, Prof. Janet P. Jaco, who appreciated and thanked the guest for stopping by at the university for his Iloilo Tour. Dr. Luis Gatmaitan, a Palanca Award-winning Author, then introduced to everyone his published works which are about 50 books in total. These are medical-related books made easy and simplified to be understood by children on their young age.
CPUES pupils attentively listened to one of the works of Tito Dok called “Isang Dosenang Sapatos (a Dozen Pairs of Shoes)” when he began to tell them the story. They, too, actively participated in the question and answer which came afterwards.
The said event was very timely as the CPUES celebrates Buwan ng Wika.
