MSC Origins part X: MSC HS Opens at MSC Annex

In 1995, MSC was occupying the 4th floor floor of the La Suerte building along Rizal Avenue, MSC main and the former Agrix Supermarket along A. Fule St. fondly called MSC annex.

Before the end of school year 1995-1996,  a local event caused the displacement of numerous students, and they  frantically looked for high schools to enroll in.

The city mayor quickly responded with the establishment of public high schools, known then as the city high annexes to accommodate the students who suddenly had no school to go to.  However, the government  could not provide for ALL transfer students.  Parents were looking for private schools to relocate their children.  MSC stepped up by quickly accomplishing all requirements and applying for a high school permit.

Fortunately, everything went smoothly and the permit was granted in time for the opening of school year 1996-97.  MSC annex became MSC High School, with 63 students enrolled from first to third year on its first year of operation.

Classes for the high school were only until 3 or 4 pm, so the classrooms were used by techical-vocational students until 8pm.

Stories from the Alumni: Ednelyn Agulto

If you asked me what years in school I had fun with, I have to say it would have to be my high school days. I couldn’t help but look back on my four years at VYP-MSC Institute of Technology and ask myself, “What made my high school memories worth remembering?”.

I used to be a wallflower during the early part of my high school life. I was so shy and nervous but as time went by, I gained a lot of friends and experiences.

I had a lot of experiences during high school that molded my personality. I even got to know myself better because of the school programs. It gave me the full effect of being in high school. There is so much more to it than grades and school work. The school gave us the chance to show our full potentials other than academics. We got the chance to join the school’s different clubs and organizations to hone our skills, talents, leadership and yet to discover abilities. I got the chance to be a big part of the school’s newsletter and student council, play Volleyball, sing in front of the crowd which I never did in my entire life, be part of the dance group, and a whole lot more.

Staying after school for something you love to do give you a sense of pride and dedication to your school and while you’re there the memories you make and the people you meet are moments that you’ll never forget.

Of course, these experiences won’t be worth remembering if not for the friends I gained during my stay in school. I remember some of my friends wrote at the back of my notebook during break time telling me stories about their crushes – I still have those letters. We used to exchange text messages at night about our favorite koreanovela that time – Full House. We formed our chairs in circle to make chatting about random things easier for us during lunch breaks or free time. I still have bunch of stories to tell but the pages won’t be enough for all those stories.

How can I forget to give credit to our teachers and to the management for being awesome? You made learning fun and exciting for us. It wasn’t easy but it’s all worth it. Kudos to all of you!

High school was an emotional roller coaster ride. I miss it and all the crazy things we did. It was amazing and I will look back on it fondly.

MSC Scouts Investiture and Camping

MSC held its Scout Investiture last September 26, 2014 with students ready to take their responsibility to the next level. Their fellow Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts, parents and godparents attended the commencement ceremony.

The Girl Scouts Investiture was held first. Kyle Javier opened the program with a prayer followed by the colors; then singing of the Philippine National anthem. After that our very own principal, Ma’am Lerma Prudente welcomed the guests and of course the girls being invested to the new world of Scouting. After the warm welcome from the principal, the investing officers gave a little message then officially started the investing ceremony with the lighting of the big candles. This is followed by the lighting of the small candles by chosen scouts and cadets, and each one recited the Girl Scout Law. The investing officers started to invest each scout and cadet after the lighting of the candles. They made them recite the Girl Scout Promise and Law that served as their pass to the next level of scouting. They received new pins for their new chapter in scouting. All were very proud after receiving their new pins and wearing their own scarves put on them by their godparents. After the investing ceremony, the program proceeded with the celebration of Escoda Day.

The Escoda Day celebration started with the Escoda Hymn sung by the newly invested scouts and cadets with their fellow scouts. After that, the brief information about the beloved founder of the Girl Scout, Josefa Llanes Escoda, was read by each leader. A few songs were also dedicated to her. After all of that, scouts and cadets walked in circle for their contribution that was put in the basket while singing the Girl Scout theme.The Girl Scout Investiture ended with a message from Tita Au Punzalan which was followed by the retiring of colors.

After lunch is the start of the school’s class night. Excitement in the students’ eyes can be spotted. The program started with a demo on knot tying by Mrs. Rose Cleofe. She taught students some knots like; the basic, Square knot, Bowline, Sheet Bend, Two-half Hitches, Clove Hitch and Truckers knot. All scouts were enthusiastically minding their own knots. After the knot tying session, the scouts were given a chance to rest to be ready for the next game which was building a tower out of three long bond papers hosted by Miss Jinky Artillero and Miss Jhen Gonzales. All were serious in thinking on how to build one in just five minutes. In the end, the girl scouts won the game. Before the preparation for dinner, scouts were asked to prepare their own camp fire to be used for the camp fire session after scouts take their dinner. In the camp fire session, all were having fun in lighting their DIY mini camp fire. Pictures were taken and laughter filled the court. All were enjoying the night before they went to bed.

In the morning, Girl Scouts had a Scouts Own; a service that is usually short, often lasting no longer than 15 minutes. They are made up of a mixture of readings, prayers, reflections and music. After this session, all scouts were permitted to go home, bringing with them the fun, lessons, and memorable moments during these activities.
