"Santa Klaus" Visits the School Early This Year!

Mr. Klaus Pfaender, a committed supporter of the Tapulanga Foundation, came up with a great idea to celebrate his milestone birthday in Spain. In lieu of gifts, Mr. Pfaender asked his friends and family to donate to the Tapulanga Foundation instead. On top of that, he also decided to match the total gifts he received thus making a generous donation to the foundation.

On behalf of all the students, faculty and staff of St. Francis of Assisi School of Silay City Foundation, Inc., thank you to Mr. Pfaender for the IMMENSE blessing he showered upon the school with this great gesture. We thank him for making the foundation a beneficiary during his birthday. And we thank all of his generous friends as well who made such a blessing possible.

This is by far the biggest donation the foundation has ever received. Mr. Pfaender's donation provided for the following:

our very first 47 inch flat screen LED TV, a home theater system with a new dvd player
and two airconditioners for our Audio-Visual Room,

two computers for our Computer Laboratory,

and two college scholarship grants to be awarded in March 2012.
Mr. Pfaendar is "Santa Klaus" to SFAS, bearing lots of gifts to our school!

This has been a much-needed upgrade to our Audio-Visual Room. For many years, we have been holding film screenings using a small 21-inch television for a class of 40 students and a karaoke machine as our sound system. This was definitely a birthday gift that will continue to give for years to come.

Dankeschon, Sir Klaus and to your friends and family!

Yup, the new tv and home theater system are perfect! It's captivating! Students don't get distracted or bored anymore because it's just visually grand. - Sir JR Abello, Social Studies teacher who regularly holds film showing classes
