“There is nothing more powerful, more glorious, more triumphant than the moment you start to believe that your dream has become a reality,” said Joseph Aureada, EPS- Values Education, during the launching of  Schools Division Office of Tayabas City’s Project 4C’s (Cascading Characters through Classroom Circles), held at Kalumpang Elementary School on August 16.

The program which he considered “a dream come true,” was conceptualized as a sincere response to the call of the Division of Tayabas City for the instilling and strengthening of important values to Tayabense students.

Project 4 C’s which is anchored on DepEd’s Core Values and DepEd Order No. 8 s, 2015 aims to address various student behavior such as delinquency among adolescents, substance abuse, chronic absenteeism and gang fights in basic education institutions.

During the project orientation, Aureada discussed the monthly character themes which shall be cascaded by teachers to their classroom character circles.  He added that the monthly themes which are anchored on DepEd Calendar are as follows – June- Cleanliness, July – Patience, August – Pride, September – Responsibility, October – Sensitivity, November – Respect, December – Gratitude, January – Conservation, February – Honesty, and March – Humility.

He also presented suggestive activities and indicators for each monthly theme to ensure that students will live up the values cascaded in mind, in words, and in action.

To measure the success of the said project, he has created a Facebook Group which would provide an avenue for teachers to share exemplary activities and outputs relevant to the implementation of the program.
