The sudden leap to online distance learning brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic presented additional challenges to the Claretian learners and teachers. More so, parents, guardians and other family members were prompted to rise up to the extra challenging task of being a learning companion: a cheerleader, motivator, supporter, and many more all rolled into one.

To shed light into the many significant roles that learning companions play in the online education of young Claretian learners, the Student Development Center (SDC) organized a webinar especially tailored for learning companions entitled “Learning Companion: Roles and Responsibilities in the Student’s Online Education”. It was held last November 13, 2021 via MS Teams Live Event.

Mrs. Angelyn D. Santos, RGC, an SDC guidance counselor discussed the roles and responsibilities of a learning companion while Mr. John Patrick Sulit, LPT, an SDC guidance facilitator discussed the topic on creating a positive learning environment at home.

The 224 attendees, composed of Grade School parents, guardians, teachers and other learning companions, were somehow empowered by understanding the significant role that they play in the success of every Claretian student’s online education in this present time.
