The contest was held at Dolores Elementary School at Dolores, San Pablo City from November 14 to 15, 2014. Here is a complete list of the MSC delegation:
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 Origins part XII: Annex Stories 2
The MSC Annex was the “home” of MSC for 16 years and it has been the site for a lot of activities participated in by the students, faculty, and staff. Many people, even those not involved in the school, visited the place for the various recurring events. MSC Annex was the site for
- Quick Count Headquarters
- San Pablo City Fiesta Stage
- Summer Classes Venue for Music Lessons, Computer Courses, and Entrance Test Reviews
Conversion: Meters to Feet and Inches
Those who are accustomed to expressing their heights in feet and inches find it hard to estimate the heights of NBA players when expressed in meters. It can be easily done if we follow these simple steps
MSC firsts: First Registered Caregiving School in San Pablo City
In San Pablo City, MSC was the first school recognized by TESDA to offer a short course on Caregiving.
MSC started its first Caregiving class on July 16, 2002 which was held at the 4th floor and the penthouse of the El Coco building along A. Fule St., beside MSC Annex.
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
