SM City Bacolod in cooperation with the Bacolod City National High School will honor Filipino teachers in a Teacher’s Day celebration to be held on October 6, Thursday at 4:30PM at the mall’s Northwing Event Centre.

There will be booths to provide free pampering services to teachers and a special tribute number to teachers where a successful BCNHS alumnus will give a special message. It will be highlighted by the posting of messages at “Thank You, Teacher” wall where everyone gets to write a message for his or her teacher.

Moreover, BCNHS teachers will showcase their talents in dancing while students will give testimonials on how their teachers influenced and touched their lives.

President Benigno Aquino III declared the period from September 5 to October 5 of every year as National Teachers' Month. By virtue of Proclamation 242, the President emphasized the need to generate widespread awareness and support for World Teachers' Day in the Philippines.

The celebration of National Teacher's Month aims "to revitalize the image of teaching as a vocation by increasing public awareness on the value of teachers in Philippine society and national development."
