LOOK: Teacher Receives Native Chicken as Gift for Teacher’s Day

During the celebration of World’s Teacher’s Day, students often gift their teachers with flowers, balloons, or chocolates. Some bring cakes and other gifts, including bags, shoes, plants, and many other items that they wish to give their teachers as a way of thanking them for everything they did for the students.

But a young student’s gift recently went viral because he actually gave his teacher a native chicken – a live one!

A public school teacher at Banwalan Primary School in General Santos City, southern Philippines, who goes by the name ‘Talon Claude’ on social media shared photos of her student’s unique and impressive gift.

Wala yang flowers, chocolates, cakes and balloons niyo sa native manok ko! Hahaha..???? Thank you Legaspi. Pinaka happy teacher si Maam. It doesn’t matter how expensive or how cheap it is. It’s always the thought that counts,” Claude shared on Facebook.

The teacher told SunStar Davao that before Friday, October 4, she told her students to bring any gift for the teachers of the school. Since there are only three teachers and a school head, Claude told the students that they could also share their gifts to the others instead of giving her.

A boy named Legaspi asked Claude if he could bring a chicken, but she didn’t think he was serious or that the chicken was for her.

Three lang po kasi kami sa school so sabi ko bigyan natin lahat ng teachers kasi tatlo lang naman kami. Pili lang kayo sa amin. Nag-raise lang po sya ng question if pwede ba daw manok ibigay. I said yes pwede yan as long as bigay niyo from the heart at saka dapat ipagpaalam muna sa parents. Sabi ko kahit ano pa yang dalhin niyo okay lang. Wala silang na mention na name kung sino bibigyan,” Claude explained.

Na-shocked po ako. Haha sabi ko nga kala ko joke lang, yon pala totoo pala po. Sabi ng co-teacher ko ulamin nalang po daw namin, sabi ko ‘wag lang muna ma’am. E-document ko muna yan kasi first time ko pong makakatanggap ng manok. It means a lot to me…
