  • Academic school year 2021-2022 officially started Monday, September 13, 2021, marking the second year of distance learning of over 24 million enrolled students, according to the Department of Education.

    DepEd Secretary Leonor Briones celebrated the “victory and success” of the school opening, but what about the moms and dads who have to deal with the children at home? Did they also experience a 'first day high'?

    “First day ng kids today sa school. Bakit mas excited ako? ‘Mommy, kalma!’” — Cheska Cruz


    “First day sa kinder, mas excited pa ata ang mommy kaysa sa anak!” — Vianne V.

    “Mapa-traditional o mapa-homeschool, ako talaga ang pinaka-excited LOL!” — JR R.

    “Naku. First day of school namin, bunganga agad!” — Zeil L.

    “Naka-My Day na po ba ang lahat?” — Shenly D.

    “Nagkakape ako sa sunud-sunod na stress.” — Mary E.

    “If it’s first day of school na face-to-face, excited ako kasi may ‘me-time’ na naman ako. But sa panahon ngayon? Lalo akong na-stress kasi dagdag trabaho sa akin magturo! Ngayong panahon ko talaga na-appreciate ang patience ng mga teachers.” — Sarah A.

    “Totoo ‘yan. Kahit makulit ang bata, kalma lang sila. ‘Yung panganay ko, grade 5, tapos preschool yung kambal ko. Thankfully, mahuhusay at pasensyosa mga teachers nila!” — Heidz P.

    “Sana all excited! Trial class pa nga lang ng kambal ko, para na akong maloloka. Pati yata yung teacher nila na-stress ng very light sa kanila!” — Kathleen A.

    “Ma-excite o ma-stress? Dalawa na ang magmo-module, dalawa na ang sasagutan ko. Char!” — Kat D.

     “‘Yung ibang moms kaya excited din? Dami ko nakita sa newsfeed first day, eh. High blood agad!” — Mel A.

    “First day of school sa daycare. Excited sana ako pero nung nalaman ko na magbabayad ako ng 300 pesos, plus 50 pesos weekly na ako rin magtuturo dahil walang face-to-face classes, back out muna kami. Better luck next school year!” — Thina D.

     “First day of school, grade 4 na anak. He does well without my supervision, especially today na nasa hospital ako to be with my mom. Mag-isa talaga siya mag-aral. Check ko na lang later if ano ‘yung daily output niya!” — Angelyn P.

    “Same with my boys! Dalawa high school ko, no supervision need na. Bunso is grade 5, less supervision na rin, pero minsan chinecheck ko at nakakatulog sa class minsan!” — Cheska C.

    "May mas excited pa pala sa'kin. 11 a.m. ang pasok niya, 5 a.m. pa lang gising na. Ang ending, nakatulog sa klase ang alaga ko!"
