Five hundred eighty-four family members and pre-elementary pupils discovered the joy of togetherness during the pre-elem family day, November 17.

Dressed in their chosen career costumes, pre-kinder and kinder pupils and their family members attended the Holy Mass in the Basilica of Immaculate Concepcion.  Rev. Fr. Aurelio Dimaaapi, mass presider, highlighted the significance of family day and showed appreciation to the effort of the school to give time for families to be together.

This was followed by a program which highlighted the talents of the pupils and the parents as well. Dressed in their school uniform, “Give Thanks” was interpreted by select pre-elem pupils as opening prayer. Amidst their eager parents, pre-elem pupils in their chosen career costume sashayed from the back of the auditorium to the stage. The children’s career costume varied as they became young nun, priests, beauty queen, bank manager, doctors, nurses, law enforcers, soldiers, engineers, architects, pilot, flight stewardess, scientist, astronaut, firefighters, chefs and teachers. One-hundred seventy-seven pupils expressed their gratitude to their parents through the song “Journey”. Songs expressing their hopes and dreams were likewise rendered by each section. Pre-elem pupils also wowed their audience with  recent dance hits such as “Bam”.

A lively dance number coming from the parents brought memories of their younger years. The singing families were also applauded by the audience with their interpretations of their own chosen songs.

Blue, yellow, green and red colors competed in varied games. Green had a head start as their team placed 1st in the flag raising. Ping-Pong challenge was won by red team. Yellow team landed first in the “tied-up relay” while the Blue team won the “fish relay” challenge. All tied with 10 points each, the last game, the hula-hoop relay became the deciding game. With only few seconds ahead with red team, the yellow team came up triumphant and was declared champion of Family Day 2018.

Rosary tokens were given to each family believing that a family that prays together, stays together.

In the welcome message of Mrs. Rossana Bagon, IBED principal, she stressed that the family plays an important role in the growth of the children. She said that family day can strengthen family bond and conducting one is the way of the school to help the children.

SJEC conducts overnight Socialization

Aiming to create bond and to build camaraderie among college male students, St. John Eudes Club (SJEC) conducted an overnight socialization at SBC gymnasium, Aug 10-11.

Inspired with the theme “Establishing strong relationship and camaraderie by acquiring the values of St. John Eudes”, various activities were prepared by SJEC officers and senior members.

SJEC members were divided into four teams: Yellow Team, Blue Team, Green Team and White Team. Several games such as Ubusan ng Lahi, Minute to Win it, Amazing Race, Volleyball and Basketball were facilitated by the officers. Blue team was declared as the overall winner.

Meanwhile, college alumni and former SJEC members were invited to give talk and sharing. Terrence Ambon, former Daop- Palad Student Council (DPSC) president, emphasized that being an SJEC member requires the sense of commitment, system of reconciliation and a strong relationship with God.

Afterwards, Armando De Chavez, former Knowledge Artisans in Business and Networks (KABAN) president, delivered his talk with an acronym MPBL. M stands for Malasakit sa kapwa, P stands for Pagkukusa sa mga gawain, B stands for Bukal sa puso and L is for Laging may pagdadamayan which are the attitudes that an SJEC member must possess.

Lastly, Jerick Ramos, SJE Awardee, opened the topic about gender and sexuality, identity versus role confusion, chastity, and zeal.

“The world needs a man that is not judgmental. A man needs to act and become a responsible human person that will leave a legacy,” he ended.

According to Sherwin Bagon, SJEC moderator, it is good that the tradition has been revived because it is one of the highlights of being an SJEC member. It is not only for the intention of bonding all boys but it also serves as a challenge for development, not only physically but also socially, emotionally and intellectually. After the socialization, the bond became stronger among the members whether with the same course or not.

The activity was concluded with brotherhood rites where SJEC members surpassed different obstacles while being blindfolded.

JHS Leaders Challenged to Become Shepherds

“How would you lead others if you cannot lead yourself?”

Rooted in the ideology of John Maxwell that “Everyone wanted to change the world, but no one wanted to change himself,” Mr. Nelberth Magbanua, JHS Faculty, challenged the Bridgetine Integrated Student Association (BISA), Class and Club Officers of the JHS Level in the Leadership Trainings held at Morrisey Hall, July 7 and August 4.

“Self-leadership is the process by which you influence yourself to achieve your objectives.”

Mr. Magbanua stressed the importance of self-leadership which is an “inside-out” leadership. He also emphasized that leaders should have self-awareness, self-confidence, and self-efficacy which he then called the ACE of self-leadership.

“To lead is to become a shepherd…”

Using Jesus Christ as the greatest leader and shepherd, Mr. Magbanua also asked everyone to become a good shepherd. He highlighted that to become one needs to have boundaries, to be a good example, to become trustworthy, to have provision, to be sacrificial, to be devoted, to be relational, and to be visionary.

Moreover, student-leaders also participated in the different activities that strengthened their camaraderie and leadership skills. They also experienced games that honed their cooperation and enthusiasm in helping others in need.

“Being a leader is not just about telling them what to do but showing them the real essence of being a leader – being a good influencer”, said Geraldine Jur Macatangay, BISA President.

Knowing that being a leader entails a lot of responsibility, she declared that she should be a role model to everyone. She also mentioned that the most striking lesson that she got from the training is that a leader needs to be alert at all times.

Organized by BISA and Student Activities Coordinators, Mrs. Julieta Macalalad and Mrs. Diosa Dimaunahan, the said leadership trainings ended with a challenge asking everyone to lead with good intentions while thinking the influence and impact they would bring the school.

Furthermore, Mr. Armando de Chavez Jr., an SK official, joined Mr. Magbanua in facilitating the training on July 7.
