The Junior High School students of MSC, together with their teachers joined the San Pablo community in celebrating the country’s 118th Independence Day at the city plaza. The event started with the flag raising led by San Pablo City officials.
Listening to the notable speakers during the event was another learning experience for the MSC students. Congresswoman Sol Aragones, Supt.
