Re-introducing the art of letter writing
MANILA, Philippines - About 100,000 students nationwide will participate in the 2nd National Letter Writing Day on October 9 to mark the celebration of World Post Day in the country.
PHLPost is at the helm of this simultaneous letter writing activity, with the Department of Education, Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino and SM Supermalls as partner agencies.
With this year's theme "Pinasaya," participating students are expected to write happy thoughts to delight a family member, friend, teacher, or anyone special.
The center of the festivities will be at the Samsung Hall of SM Aura in Taguig City, to be attended by about 800 students from Metro Manila. Meanwhile, the rest of the said activities will be held in 34 other participating SM Malls and 1,000 selected schools.
PHLPost Postmasters will facilitate the discussion and actual letterwriting and mailing activities in the said event.
According to Postmaster Josie Dela Cruz, the National Letter Writing Day is part of PHLPost’s Sulat-Mulat Postal Awareness Campaign with the aim of re-introducing and promoting the art of letter writing as a means of communication among students in today's digital age.
The activity also aims to help the students hone their composition skills and foster the enjoyment of sending and receiving letters through the postal office. - Rappler.com
