The Philippine Postal Corp. is teaming up with the Department of Education to honor our teachers for World Teachers’ Day, with a special stamp and a letter-writing contest.
PHLPost issued special stamps recognizing the role of teachers who continue to serve their respective communities, molding the future generations of Filipinos.
It said the stamps feature the special se-tenant pair (two different designs and face value join together) stamps depicts the logo of “My Teacher, My Hero”, “Excellent!”, and “Thank you, teacher” stamped on the outreached hand of a teacher (https://www.phlpost.gov.ph/whats-happening.php?id=4097).
PHLPost said this aims “to give thanks and appreciate the sacrifice and dedication of our beloved teachers by sending them a letter of gratitude.”
Meanwhile, PHLPost also launched the “Salamat Po! Nationwide Letter Writing Advocacy program” encouraging students to recognize their teachers and other role models.
Students aged 10 to 15 will mail letters of gratitude, in which they will have the chance to win in the raffle contest and compete in the letter writing competition for local and international level.
A student can write a letter by saying “Thank You” to their teacher’s through letter writing using the theme: “4A’s of Gratitude: Appreciation, Admiration, approval and attention”.
The letters will be sent in a sealed envelope where the complete details of the sender and addressee are clearly written and visible. The thank you letters shall be mailed via the Post Office through Ordinary Mail Service.
Winners in the postal areas will qualify for the National on the Spot Universal Postal Union International Letter Writing Competition.
