In celebration of the National Teacher’s Month and World Teacher’s Day, Knowledge Channel Foundation (KCFI) and It’s Showtime honor educators from different parts of the country.
From September 30 until October 5, some teachers, retired educators and representatives from the Department of Education got the chance to visit ABS-CBN and secure special seats as live audience on ‘It’s Showtime’.
On “World Teacher’s Day” last October 5, “It’s Showtime” on its 10th Anniversary and KCFI now on it’s 20th year, surprised a group of ten teachers by granting their wish as they all received a Gift of Knowledge package for their schools which included Knowledge TV and an ABS-CBN TVplus box or a SKYdirect connection for remote schools.
