# Trivia – MSC: NAMFREL volunteer, SPERM member

MSC has always instilled in its students, faculty, and staff to always be aware of what is going on in the community/country and to take active part in activities that will affect the future of the society we live in.

During the commemoration of special events, MSC is never “absent” in ceremonies and wreath/flower offerings.  Be it an activity by the government or the church, MSC has always lent support and participated enthusiastically.

Whenever election comes, all members of the MSC staff, some faculty members and students become volunteers of  National Citizens’ Movement for Free Elections (NAMFREL).  There were times when MSC became headquarter for quick counts.  Volunteers from civic and other groups would deliver results which were tallied by MSC programmers and encoders.  Partial results will then be displayed on a big screen outside for people to see.  The quick counts usually lasted for more than 24 hours.

MSC was also a member of SPERM (San Pablo Electoral Reform Movement), a group of San Pablo City citizens who were advocates of educating voters.  They were campaigning, not for individual candidates or parties, but for voters to know their rights, know the candidates, and their platform.

# Di lang Pang Akademiks, Pang Isports Pa!

ni: John Ellery S. Alcantara

Ang pagkakaroon ng isang progresibong “Sports Club” ay nagbibigay galak sa bawat mag-aaral ng MSC High School. Maituturing itong isang kayamanan sa paaralan dahil may layunin itong palawakin ang kaalaman ng bawat mag-aaral sa isports pati na rin sa mga termino ng bawat isport. Nagsisilbi rin itong inspirasyon sa bawat mag-aaral na paghusayan pa sa pag-aaral at pagsikapan pang tumaas ang kanilang mga marka.

Ang temang “Punla ang kaunlaran, tagumpay sa kinabukasan” ay mai-uugnay sa pampalakasan na kinakitaan ng walang humpay na pagsuporta ng mga kaguruan sa MSC High School. Kaya ipinagmamalaki ng bawat estudyante ang kanilang paaralan dahil sa mahusay na pamamalakad nito. Hangad nito ang isang aktibong komunikasyon na magbibigay inspirasyon sa pang-malawakang mga aktibidades ng bawat estudyante sa isang napakatamis na tagumpay.

Sa pangunguna ng mga mahuhusay na guro tulad ni G. Joseph Gutierrez at dahil na rin sa suporta nila, nabuo ang organisasyong ito.

Ayon sa napagpulungan noong ika-24 ng Hunyo, maaaring makasali muli ang mga manlalaro ng MSC High School sa darating na Palarong Panlunsod, kaya’t puspusan nang  naghahanda at nag- eensayo   ang bawat manlalaro ng bawat respetadong isports na kanilang lalahukan.

Ang temang “Punla ang kaunlaran, tagumpay sa kinabukasan” ay mai-uugnay  sa pampalakasan na kinakitaan ng walang humpay na pagsuporta ng mga kaguruan sa MSC High School.

Mahalaga rin ang palakasan upang maging maayos ang kalusugan ng bawat isa at maging kapakipakinabang silang mga mamamayan.
