Hilda Cordero- The Visitation of the Gods

44 comments:

  1. This story of Hilda Cordero shows on how the Supervisors or the head of the School interact with each other. I can see that one when I'm still in my grade school years. There were lots of food when the Supervisors visits our school. It was kind of crazy that the one who teaches us does not have a good values in their self. some teacher used their own pupils to be their maids at home and its not appropriate to them. I hope those teacher will now the right thing ang show what good moral is.

  2. A story that depicts the reality happening in public schools when high positioned people visits the school. They made impressions to earn high rates from the them. Basically, they are just pretending on what they are doing. Pretending though contributes good effect yet its not good actually. Becoming true to oneself is better than having a mask which people are already aware that you are just pretending. It will just cause shame to ourselves.

  3. The story shows how difficult in sustaining ones interest in improving the standards of education in the country especially in the public schools. I realized that in the end, it is always the children who will suffer. The story were all part of my experience. Hope that those not good practices of the administrators will change. The story was indeed good because it shows reality in what is really happening when it comes to pretending.

  4. As a student, i have experienced how the teachers told us about this kind of activities. Everytime if someone that in a high position will come to our school,they just so busy planning what to to do. But they don't know that the their students are suffering from their tricks. They just doing it for the sake of their income and pride. They don't know that it is wrong to show that their school is good but actually not. As a student, I hope that this kind of activities will be minimized. And they will show the true color of a teacher.

  5. The prominent filipino author Hilda Cordero Fernando portrays some of the authorities' irregularities in society in his short story " The Visitation Of The Gods". Base in the story, the conflict between Mr. Noel and Mr. Sawit is just a proof that there is really happening that are not equal in terms of treatment in every members of this story. This argument is about the moment of truth with this hidden secret of being a snake. It is up to you to decide whether this snakes in society are acceptable. Aren't they?

  6. The Visitation of the Gods shows how unequal and unfair life is. Even there are people who act in a right way, still there are people who will block their way. It is the life of the public schools that I experienced once before. Preparing our rooms and some foods for the visitors from the DepEd. It is the life of our beloved teachers who sometimes do not receive equal treatment from other teachers. There are teachers who are best actors or actresses especially when there is a visitor in the school.I realized that being a teacher is not really an easy task to do, teaching the students and understand what the attitude of their co-teacher is.

  7. It is a real life scenario where schools often undergo evaluations to measure their performances.I just don't like the reality that some schools beautify their campuses during evaluation period only.Teachers train their students on what to do, what to say and how to answer during the said activity. But what is more disgusting is,some teachers are "sip-sip" to the evaluators just to be hired in a higher position,so where is the justice then? I know that being a teacher is not an easy profession, there are lots of sacrifices but isn't it more grateful that you are in that position because you deserved it? Still I salute those teachers who remain loyal with their job and those who give importance with their dignity.

  8. The story narrates the visitation of the gods(in which it refers to the deped superentindent and supervisors)in a public school. I did like how Hilda Cordero Fernando present it in a way that she was able to present what is really the situation regarding the educational system in the Phlippines. She presented it allegorically in the sense that it connects to the greek gods. For me, Hilda was able to identify the root of the problem-the culture. Because the story was all about the real scenario when a division head visit the school, the teacher rehears the students on what to do, beautify the school & so many more in order to impress the visitors. Eventhough they knew very well to themselves what is really happening but they don't mind it anymore because it has been the culture.

  9. In the Visitation of the Gods it shows the unequal life. because it is really happened in the reality especially when I was in the high school life there are some supervisors who visited in our campus to check the performances of the every teachers then the teachers pretending more that they really good in order for them to have a high position. In this case it is really unfair especially to those teacher who are do their best to have it. As a concern I hope this activity will totally gone in order to have a fair and equal relationship in every teacher. And have a justice for those affected people.

  10. The story is based on the real life scenario.It shows the educational system here in the Philippines.The practices done by a school administration and staffs when there is a coming evaluation are being shown in the story.They made so much preparations and do their job well only when there are evaluators to get higher rates which is not a good habit.I like it because it could bring the officials and the administration of the DepEd into a realization that there must be changes in the system.The story is not only focusing on the mistakes but it also shows those few people who are still loyal with their work!

  11. The story shows the realization of the culture. if we have an incoming visitor in our school and in our home, we cleaned and beautify our surroundings in our school and in our home as well. We entertained them well. Everything is ready for any purpose.We really did our best to please and impress the visitors. So that when they leave, we will not hear some bad thoughts or rumors towards us.

  12. This story shows the real situation when there's a coming visitor in different school specially in elementary level.Filipino people follow the culture in the sense that if there's a visitor we cleaned and beautify the surroundings of the school,we entertain the visitor in order them to appreciate the school.The message of this short story is "Justice is indeed hand to find in the Philippines".This short story is reflected to the life of the author which is Gilda Cordero Fernando.

  13. In the story of Gilda Cordero Fernando entitled," The Visitation of Gods", shows the hospitality of the Filipinos in their homes or in everywhere else.The story described the management of their educational system. In where they tend to be always prepare and pretend to have everything even if they don't have,just to impress their visitors.Above all these, Ms. Noel in the story tried to be loyal in her work.She did her best to influenced her colleagues for a change, but they didn't.In fact the story shows that this kind of misleading is already applied and practiced of the most, exemption to those few existing their loyalty in their works.!

  14. When you hate someone and you want to seek revenge, all i can say is forgive that person, because you can hurt your self and some people close to you, just like what happen to Celo when he hurt his son, which he is not expected that he will do.Only forgiveness can cure the pain in the heart and the only way to feel peace in mind and to let go of the past in order to move on.This story tells about a son who wants to revenge his father, by making a way to separate his father's girl away from his father, Celo here find a right time to do that revenge, when his father is old and sick. This story is related to some people, because they can seek revenge when the person they hate is weak, and they seem proud when they see that person hopeless. The author of the story relate his life to his story, just like Chitong one of the character study priest, Nick joaquin study also to be a priest at his early days,it is good to write something related to your self, in order for you to inspire write.

  15. Gilda Cordero Fernando was able to present the story which shows the educational system here in our country and this story was entitled "The visitation of Gods". This story was fact and its already happening in the real life scenario, because some people on the higher rank abused their position.Its shows the realization of culture and most of this happened in the public school. this story also shows that there are also some teachers that have a dignity.

  16. I like the way how Hilda Cordero wrote her story Visitation of the Gods because she showed how the teachers and the admin prepared for the said visitation and some teachers just pretend that they're doing good for them to be promoted. This kind of situations is really happening in the real life. In fact, i have experienced some of the situation that are being described in the story. The rehearsal that they did, the cleaning of the campus and all the preparations. You can see that Hilda Cordero is realism if you look at her writings.

  18. The story entitled "Visitation Of The Gods" portrays a true picture of the present scenario of the education system here in the Philippines. The story shows the pretensions of the teachers especially in elementary and high school levels when evaluators visit their school. It is a sad reality that even teachers do "things" like these. They are suppose to be the models of children in doing honest,legal and moral actions.I really hope that this story will enlighten our beloved teachers so that they can realize that the ACTIONS they SHOW are ACTIONS that the children will LEARN.

  19. the story entitled "Visitation o Gods"demonstrate about the situation of the system of education n our country.The flow of this story is based on the actions happened n the environment in which the reality about this story is how the teachers play as bad influence through the eyes of their students.Their is an evaluation done in where they train their students before the visitation those high level persons and make them impress.They are supposed to be the model to their children to honest, but what they do is not in that situation.In their way of doing that action, could give bad results to their followers.

  20. The story of Visitation of the Gods who was written by Gilda Cordero Fernando shows realism. Realism because the happenings in the story really happens in real life. The Gods here refers to the heads of the Department of Education who visit a school. In reality this really happens, especially in public schools. The Dep ed heads visit a school and they observe it, that's why all the people in the school especially the teachers prepare for the visitation, because they want to look good and they want to impress the visitors. Just like what happen in the story.

  21. The Visitation of the Gods is a story that the teachers and students can relate.From the beginning sentence down to the ending paragraph,the author emphasize the real scenario when the higher school management announced to have an evaluation.In the introduction,the author describes how tradition affects the reaction and preparation of the teachers concerning on strategies they did in order to get the attention of the evaluators.In the middle,the author emphasize how the evaluators react and appreciate the good job did by the teachers and students.In the climax,the author tried to emphasize that nowadays,there are still teachers who don't want to pretend,instead they show what is real and what is right.The ending part is the highlight and admirable part because the author describes how the teacher(Ms.Noel)influence the realization of the evaluator regarding on how to be true in the things you do.

  22. This story visitation of the Gods represents how hospitality we are as filipino. I like the way of writing of the author because in the first paragraph he states that the teacher or head of the school is very prepared when they have a visitors from other school. Which is very true stories that happens particularly in public school.This story also states and give information for us student on how to treat our visitors not only in school but also in home. For us to know how to socialize other people, we should stay prepared altimes not sometimes.

  23. The story entitled The Visitation of Gods,it was a true story which portrays of teachers,students and the faculties of the school.The story talks about the visitation of the visitors to inspection there school for accreditation.The story is a true story which happened nowadays,we have to do goods in front of the visitors in order to benefit our selves but if there is no visitors in front of us we did not do goods and it is reality.It is bad doing the wrong way in front of your students teachers should be the role model of there students but sad to say base on the story its not what should they do.In this kind of story they practice there students to do bad in order for the school to be more popular and to be benefited as well.

  24. When i read the story "The Visitation of The Gods", I recall those memories when I still in elementary. The preperations of students and teachers when they have visitors. The story shows the real scenario of the reactions of teachers especially in public schools when their heads visit the school. They train very well their students on what to do during the evaluation. But the best thing that the writer wrote in his writing was all about a teacher named Mrs.Noel whose attitude is very ideal.We must be aware of this sad reality but it still happening in todays generation.Avoid "PLASTICITY" !

  25. The short story entitled "The Visitation of The Gods" portray the real scenario of some of schools basically public schools that if their is a visitor the staff, students and teachers of that school treat their higher rank visitors as a God.By the time they receive a letter which their higher rank officers visit their respective schools,they immediately do things that their visitor admire them. They do some of things like they practice their student in what they are to answer if they where to ask by the visitors. The story portray the unequal treatment of some people, they are nice on the people who are higher from them higher in the term of position,but if they fell that that person is in their lower level they wont treat them well. By the story i remember my elementary days that what the story portray is happen every time we have a visitor in our school.

  26. The "Visitation of the Gods" written by Gilda Cordero Fernando gives us information on how a visitation in public schools is conducted and the preparations they made. the short story is about reality of death of the Filipino idealism. Sad to say that the death of idealism and corruption starts in the schools. The teachers nowadays have loosen their standards of teaching. What they had shown are only the good things and hide the bad things and infirmities. It help us to be awaken in our mistakes.

  29. On the story entitled "The Visitation of the Gods" I may say that these story really happening on the present time. Just like in the story ,schools, are very much aware of the visits of any school's head officials. Back on the story, in the introduction, i can very much relate my self to that because i also experienced that kind of events when i was in high school. Mostly the school heads or principal are the one to prepare as well as the teachers.But on the climax it was so weird, how could anyone imagine that kind of preparation of the visitation a PARTY? Oh come on...maybe on that time. But base on the totality i can say that the story gives emphasize.

  31. JUSTICE IS INDEED TO FIND IN THE PHILIPPINES. Through the writing of Hilda Cordero Fernando entitled THE VISITATION OF THE GODS. She stated here how important justice especially to us as a Filipinos. Even though sometimes we suffered a lot since we belong to a unjustice country , but still we find a ways to make things possible to find, to make everythings right and clear. Because, if we try to observe our economy now a days, we still facing unto unequal treatment of those people who are in high position. In terms of different crimes, they treated us unequal, we are unjustice in terms of it. That's why, Gilda Cordero Fernando portraits by using this kind of story to be able to enlighten those people who are committed this kind of issue. And I inspired her writing since I am an individual who belong to an unjustice country.

  32. The ''Visitations of the Gods'' by Gilda Cordero tells how nice to be a teacher although it's not that easy. The story shows the real thing that happened in school in which some of the teachers are not doing their job well. For them, they are superior when they were in school, there are times that they were lazy especially in elementary schools. But still, there are some teachers that doing their responsibilities efficiently for their students. The author wants to inform the readers that were not perfect, everyone has their own weaknesses and mistakes and we must learned about it.

  37. Gilda Cordero Fernando's "The Visitation of gods" is the reality of a public school situation when there is a letter for visitation. Teachers and students immediately make actions on how to beautify their school. They want the visitors to have a positive and good comments during their stay or observation. Public schools do not necesarily maintain beautification on their surroundings not like the privete schools that have enough workers to do it. It is a story that something we can relate unto

  38. The story "THE VISITATION OF GODS" shows the real scenario that still happening in our today's generation. This story emphasize that interaction between teachers and heads depend to their ranks or levels. We can notice this situation especially in most public schools. The students and teachers really prepare their school for the visitation that the heads will be going to do. The teachers train their students on how to answer and participate to the discussion for them to be appreciated by their heads, and this is the sad part that Gilda Cordero Fernando wanted to show to the readers that still happening today.

  39. This story represent the real situation that happened especially in our country.Like someone says "nobody's perfect",being not perfect is part of our life because we cannot expect that we've done something wrong.In this story,we know that some of the character's pretend to be okay in order for them to show to their visitor's that they've do thier very best to present their output succesfully. But we do not know,pretending can make our life miserable and incomplete because you are wearing mask,you cannot show your true personality wether positive or negative it is in face of the other people. Simply accepting yourself as you are is what self-esteem all about. You must learn to value yourself because it has everything to do with accepting yourself as you are. Honestly also seeing yourself for who you are is like giving birth-painful and frightening, yet wonderful to believe that you are created unique.

  40. The story talks about the visitation of high-ranking personnel into a public school. The setting is very common. The teachers prepared too much to impress the so-called "gods". Sad to say that the story speaks the truth and that it is obvious that it is really happening in our society. It's such a pity that today, even this kind of evaluation of a school's performance can be manipulated and the visit does not serve its purpose at all. These kinds of activities should not be announced so that superintendents would really see if the school has what it takes to give quality education and if it really has a child-friendly environment.

  41. The"Visitation of the God's" story is so usual to hear,were students,were practiced on how to act the right thing to be.Thus the story tells us of how rude it was,that being as a teacher's who must be an example and said to be an educator's of righteous things,is also the one who educates lie's just to be recognized..It is sad to hear that in our world today there is only few of the many who remains true in their position,their selves and true to their life,hence, they are the one who molded students to become such,to their future life.True in it,is that, this primary group has a greater impact that affect each individual,such as students itself.However,the story portrays hospitality of Filipino who give importance to visitors such that said "god's".Thus,when I try to calculate the story,it tells us of how real and how had strong personality Gilda Cordero Fernando was like Ms. Noel,why?because of this story she never hesitate or afraid to introduce to us the reality in such schools that there is that scenario happened to our schools every time there is visitation of God's or high ranked Personalities.For me,Ms. Noel is in person of Gilda Cordero fernando,That is what the story all about.

  43. The Visitation of Gods shows the reality happening in our school today. Some teachers from public schools are not doing their job well and students can notice it. The author tells that only few people are honest and trustworthy. Not all people aware about the feelings of the other,they just care about their job and to earned money. Just like the story of Hilda Cordero, it's the real thing happened in our society.
