On Day 2, the focus was on discussing the General Shaping Paper and unpacking Quarters 1 and 2.

The final day featured an inspiring message from the Assistant Division Superintendent, Dr. Juan Obierna, who challenged participants to not only demonstrate competence but also show compassion and great love for their students. "Implementing the MATATAG Curriculum is not just about academic excellence. It’s about nurturing our students with compassion and a genuine love for their growth and well-being," Dr. Obierna emphasized.

On behalf of the participants, Dr. Teresita Arcos-Surot, the School Directress and President-elect of the Association of Private School Administrators, expressed a strong commitment to embracing the Department of Education's mandate with utmost dedication. "We are enthusiastic and ready to implement the MATATAG Curriculum, driven by our compassion and love for our students.
