Aringay District Guidance Program
Guidance Program has been a part of the curriculum in Aringay
Central Elementary School long before it was implemented by the
Department of Education. Homeroom advisers organized Homeroom
guidance programs for pupils. Along this endeavor, a thirty-minute
guidance activity has been included in the class program of every
homeroom adviser to implement the guidance program of Aringay
Central Elementary School. The said program has been intensified with
the integration of values education in the school curriculum.
This Program aims to facilitate learning at all levels of development.
The advent of the guidance program in school is considered an important
breakthrough in the educational system.
The significant role of a Guidance Program is indispensable in the
elementary level given the bulk of responsibility for developing and
preparing the pupil for leadership through better preparation and
choices, improved skills and attitudes, and good citizenship training,
which provide them a strong foundation.
From this point of view the Guidance Program has therefore
established its rightful place in the education of the child where he
develops his self-concept, self-esteem, and self-confidence. Therefore, the
teachers and parents should be aware of the guidance functions because
they have a vital role in molding the pupils to their holistic development.
There is really a need to look into the welfare of the pupils so that
they would be able to achieve education to the fullest. It is a fact that
when a pupil has emotional or personal problems, he cannot make use of
his potentialities properly. Guidance and Counseling is one of the ways
and by means which educators particularly the teachers, could assist the
learners in school. Guidance within education represents society’s
expression of concern to pupils.
Through the implementation of a Guidance Program in the school the
Guidance Services will help each pupil to develop his potentialities, like
leadership and the enhancement of values. The role of the teachers in
imparting knowledge in developing the child’s values should be
givenattention so that goal of learning will be possible and that the
development of the child is further enhanced. The interaction between a
teacher and his pupil, as well as between parent and teacher is very
important, As the child grows, behavioral patterns develop, and these
patterns depend on how people in his environment interact with him.

CONCEPTUAL AND LEGAL BASES

Management and Services of Teachers and Administrators in the Public
Elementary Schools of Aringay District” by Encarnacion F. Ferrer Master

The more or less systematic way of organizing and administering the
guidance program in schools may be based on the fundamental aims of
education as provided in our constitution, and as applied by Congress as
early as May 1950, namely that is the duty of all school and other
educational agencies in the Philippines to guide the children.

clear understanding on the child’s direction towards attaining selfsatisfaction and values formation. In collaboration with their staff,
they would be able to discuss and draw up plans for the
implementation of the project.
