Grade 10 class went to play Good Samaritans to a town in Batangas, needing coastal clean-up. This drive, to help make the water environment safe and clean for the town’s residents and visitors happened November 7th, Friday.
Good job, Ms. Verlyn Holaysan and her Grade 10 Homeroom Advisory Class!!!
Another school year of service-learning to become global citizens awaits all of us at the Upper School. For the first semester, Service Learning projects will have two thrusts–one focusing on a Social Science area (Education) and the other on a Science issue (Biodiversity or Deforestation or Infectious Diseases).
Students in their respective homerooms will decide on which area they would like to focus on, either Social Science or Science, for their major Service Learning Project for this semester.
It is possible that the commitments of our groups from the 2nd semester of SY 2013-14 may continue, but be sponsored by homerooms interested in continuing these.
One of our Service Learning Gang Groups this semester, “Education for All,” has “partnered” with one of the most respected NGOs in the field of education–the Hero Foundation, dedicated to providing children of members of the Philippine military forces with assistance in their educational needs. The gang group members interviewed the widows and children survivors of deceased members of the military with the intent of writing a digital storybook revolving around the life of a HERO scholar of the foundation.
A number of our high school grades 9-11 students returned from an outdoor educational trip to Borneo last week of February. They bring with them stories of roughing it in the wild as they toured Sabah, Malaysian Borneo!
