Andrea Zubiri, the first SENIA Student Award winner in 2012, inspires once again as her story is featured on ABS-CBN’s news program ‘Bandila’. Aired on March 3, 2016, the feature entitled “How inclusive education helps students with special needs” tells the story of Andrea and her achievement as a new graduate of AB Photography from De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. SENIA board member was also interviewed as the Director of her school’s Center for Inclusive Education.
We would like to congratulate the members of SENIA Manila Youth Chapter for their outstanding work during the SENIA Conference at International School of Kuala Lumpur last February 26, 2016. The SENIA Youth conducted an informative, honest, heartfelt, and inspiring workshop for a room full teachers and parents entitled, “Empower Students to Be Advocates for their Peers.”
All youth group members represented their schools and SENIA Manila well, as they worked hard to collaboratively put together and execute an excellent workshop. They have inspired teachers from different parts of Asia to start their own youth groups! Representing SENIA Manila and their schools were the following individuals:
