Get them while they're young

Back in January, I posted a photo of the main gate and facade of Claret School of Quezon City. It has a second gate on a different road, which I think is closer to the preschool classrooms because the metal letters to the right of the tree read "Claret Childhood Center." If the mural is also a sign, then that little structure with the red roof is the vocation office of the Claretian Missionaries in the Philippines.

Beautiful picture!
The place seems so quiet and calm (I think that children are not yet for the school day.) The tree in detail in this photo is perfect.
Kind regards
Léia :-)

I think vocational schools are a good thing. A lot of students can profit from going there. Nice photography.

I like the orange trim on the building and I really like the mural! This shot is nicely composed.

I like the photo very much, Hilda...not only because it is an interesting place, but the colors are wonderful - red, orange, green, cyan, magenta, yellow - it's a veritable rainbow.

Is this where someone would go it they wanted to be a Claretian missionary?

Marc said...

I like the post title. And JC looks very cool in the mural, which will appeal to youths. Very clever.

George said...

You've done a wonderful job of capturing this peaceful scene.

Just wanted to say, I thought about you and your blog alot while I was on the cruise. I'm sure you know there are many Philipinos working in the cruise industry... and we had the pleasure of meeting some of your best exports. I really would like to come visit someday. Your really make Manilla attractive through your photos and commentary. :) :)

Hopefully I won't have so much work to get caught up on and can get back into my blog groove soon!!! I missed reading and seeing all my usual cities.

en réponse a ta question, il joue les yeux fermés pour faire une performance (et aussi, cela fait travailler la mémoire et la concentration du joueur), cela pour attirer du monde et faire jouer les gens aux échecs.

in response to your question, it plays with your eyes closed for a performance (and also, it's working memory and concentration of the player), that to attract crowds and make people play chess

Jacob:
Yes, at least in Metro Manila.

Mo:
They're a Roman Catholic order of priests founded by St. Anthony Claret in Spain.
