Stories from the Alumni: Joan Miranda

I was asked to write about our batch in high school and talk about what made us unique, but I won’t.

To be honest, aside from our names and faces, we are just the same as you are. We are made up of different kind of students, the nerds, the athletes, the popular ones, the shy ones, and even one who seemed like God had showered him with everything.

What we went through was basically just the same things you thought you could never survive, such as exams, extra-curricular, and many more — we did and so will you.

MSC 18: Base Multiplication – Numbers Below the Base

When multiplying numbers below a power of 10, we subtract one number’s deficiency from the base from the other number and then add the product of the deficiencies.

Example 18.1: Find 98 x 97
= (100 – 2)(100 – 3)
= (100 – 2 – 3)(100) + (-2 x -3)
= (98 – 3) x 100 + 2 * 3
= 95 | 06
= 9,506

MSC Green Campus: A Stop-over for Climate Walk

VYP-MSC Institute of Technology played host to an environmental group currently conducting the Manila to Tacloban Climate Walk – a peoples walk for climate justice.

With the objective of promoting awareness on the effects of climate change, the group started at Rizal Park or kilometer 0 on October 2, and expects to reach Tacloban or ground 0 by November 8, in time for the first anniversary of Super typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan)

The group was composed of 11 “core walkers” but volunteers would be joining them in some parts of the walk.  Supporting the group are members of Greenpeace, Aksyon Klima Pilipinas, Fast for the Climate and Climate Reality Project.

The group has been spending nights in municipal gymnasiums and churches, and charges cell phone batteries and GPS trackers with their solar panels.  In San Pablo City, the group spent Sunday evening at the green school campus of VYP-MSC IT and left early Monday, October 2.

Headed by Nityalila Saulo, they held short programs and talks in communities along the way to raise awareness on the effects of climate change.  Also in the group was Naderev “Yeb” Saño, the climate change commissioner, environmentalist, philosopher, nature lover, and peace activitist who painted dolphins on the gate of the green campus of MSC.

Starting at exactly 8:30 in the morning, students of Grades 7, 8, 9 and fourth year assembled in the school hall. The program proper started with an invocation led by Kyle Javier,a Grade 9 student. It was followed by the national anthem led by the MSC Performing Arts, trained by Mr. Rene Antiporda and Ms. Krizzalyn Barrios, the Glee Club advisers. The opening remarks of the school principal, Mrs. Lerma S. Prudente, and inspirational message from Mr. Virgilio Y. Prudente, school president, have made everyone excited on their upcoming presentation.

Each year level presented their talents and special numbers with group dance performance and songs. The students showed and proved that each of them have talents that they can share and be proud of. The event included jail and message booths, which raised funds for the Student Council.

Yells and shouts filled the hall in the afternoon with the games presented by each group with  the winners receiving prizes. The   acquaintance party and program was successfully held as the first activity of the Student Council for this school year. It achieved the goal of the studentry in proving that learning cooperation and teamwork can be fun, and socialization will leave high school memories that will last and will never be forgotten.

MSC Ipinagdiwang ang Buwan ng Wika 2014

Ngayong buwan ng Agosto, muling ipinagdiriwang ng mga mag-aaral ng MSC ang Buwan ng Pambansang Wika na may temang “Filipino: Wika ng Pagkakaisa.” Ito ay ayon sa Pangpanguluhang Proklamasyon Blg. 1041, s. 1997 na nilagdaan ni Pangulong Fidel V. Ramos. Idineklara nito ang      buwan ng Agosto bilang Buwan ng Pambansang Wika kaugnay na rin ng kapanganakan noong Agosto 19, 1878, ni Pangulong Manuel L. Quezon, ang Ama ng Wikang Pambansa.

Nilalayon ng pagdiriwang na maipalaganap ang paggamit ng wikang pambansa upang maging instrument ng kapayapaan at mahikayat ang ating mga kababayan na bigyang halaga ang ating wika sa pagkakaisa ng bawat Filipino.

Ang paggamit ng Filipino   bilang wikang pambansa ay magbubunsod sa pagkakasundo sa mga usaping pangkapayapaan dahil  sa pagkakaunawaan ng bawat isa.

Lahat ng mag-aaral, kasama ang kanilang mga guro ay nagdaos ng isang palatuntunan noong Agosto 20. Tinampukan ito ng mga paligsahan sa larangan ng pagtula, pagtatalumpati, balagtasan, pagbabalita, sabayang pagbigkas, at mga paligsahan sa isahang pag-awit at dalawahang tinig. Mas pinasigla ang palatuntunan ng pagpili ng Lakan at Lakambini ng MSC at mga piling bilang mula sa iba’t ibang antas.
