Vision in a Cover

In March 2013, I had a principal with a strong vision for Canda National High School. Mr. Jessie V. Vasquez requested me to help put his vision in the yearbook cover. He had actually challenged me to be friends with Adobe Photoshop. That time, I was just starting to explore the program.

So it was a collaboration with the principal himself, Mark Glenn Beniten, a Fourth Year student who is a great artist, and Mr. Janlo Robil, my ever reliable friend (who is an Ateneo Professor). After the conceptualization and drawing and digital enhancement, the final product shown below was used as the cover of the yearbook.


The original sketches by Glenn:

Janlo Robil put the colors. I only finalized it with photos and other digital enhancements.

I was so happy to see the yearbook with this cover! And of course, so blissful to see that a vision was put in a cover to be seen by all.


Teaching in my Community

Three years ago, I went back to my town to teach high school students in my alma mater, Canda National High School. It was a decision made from a six-month sabbatical leave from teaching at Southern Luzon State University Laboratory Schools for more than four years. Just so lucky that I fitted in a vacant position left by my former English teacher and adviser, Mrs. Ma. Jennie L. Sayson. Those three years went fast and now I have moved into another school nearer my house. I am now teaching at Castañas NHS – Senior High School.

Why did I choose to teach in the community where I live? My new school is even nearer to my house. First reason, of course, is convenience. Since my father was the one to drive for me and fetch me to and from Canda NHS, I had to wait for his available time. I felt the burden on my father’s shoulders. I practiced how to drive our motorcycle though but I had a little accident. Moreover, the travel from our house in Limbon to Canda included passing by the river. So, it’s really tough especially in wet season. There were times we slipped and my father’s hands got injured. Rainy season dipped our motorcycle in more twisted fate because the river flooded so we needed to travel through the Eco-tourism Road sometimes. Or, I just needed to squeeze myself among passengers in not-so-safe trolleys travelling on slippery railroads.

Secondly, there was this desire to know the people near my place better. I was an SK councilor in 2002 to 2007. That was the last time I made some connections to our local folks. I don’t know now the teenagers who are the young children when I was visible in our local barangay. In transferring to the school where they go and learn, I believe that I can serve better and make meaningful connections with the people in my community.

The third reason is personal. Since my Ate Diane died, I long for longer family time and want to spend more time at home. Since my school now is nearer, I can go home anytime and in no time.

Deciding to teach at Castañas NHS seemed to be hasty decision especially to my principal at Canda NHS. But I had the later part of May to spend in coming up with this decision. Teaching in my community is, I think, a good choice and if given the chance, I would like to enjoy the rest of my teaching career here.

CamSur visits Canda NHS – Senior High

Almost one hundred DepEd key officials, supervisors, and teachers from Division of Camarines Sur of Region V visited Canda National High School today. They looked on how Senior High School Program is implemented in our small school. They were curious on how a regular high school came up with enough courage to volunteer in modelling the proposed Senior High School Program. They also wanted to know the strengths and weaknesses of the program and most importantly, how the whole Senior High School struggled to continue despite the shortcomings and lacks in different aspects.

It was not the first time that teachers from other school bench-marked on the SHS Modelling Program in our school but it was the first time that a whole division from another region came to visit our remote high school. Thus, it took us a really huge preparation not only for the Senior High School Department but for the whole school as well.

The highlight of the visit was the presentation of the humble beginnings of the modelling and early implementation program. It was our pride to say that our school was the first regular public school in the whole Region IV-A CALABARZON to respond to the call of modelling the implementation. In Quezon Province, there are two other model schools but they are specialized high schools who are enjoined to implement early.

The proponent of the Senior High School Modelling Program was Mr. Jessie V. Vasquez, the former principal of the school. With a very positive outlook and a strong sense of being a risk taker, Sir Jessie accepted the challenge bravely. At his side in taking the very first steps toward the grant of permit to implement was Mrs. Marita Resurreccion, designated Senior High School Coordinator. The two of them successfully negotiated with the partner higher education institution and partner industries to sign the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) on this academic cooperation.

Campaign through text, word by mouth, ‘bandilyo’, radio advertisement, and others were done. Everyone helped to disseminate the information to interested high school graduates and potential enrolees for the program. When it started in June 2013,  there were many students who enrolled but withdrew after some time. The remaining students were only 28. They were the first graduates in March 2015. We’re proud to say that they were all employed in different industries and one of them continued higher education at Computer Systems Technological College, Inc.

During the orientation program, I was the only instructor to present the best practices in teaching. I have taught Oral Communication and Research. I presented the photos of the activities conducted in these subjects and answered some inquiries. I feel elated sharing the strategies and methods I used during my teaching in consideration of the 21st Century Skills (—Digital Literacy, —Inventive Thinking, —Effective Communication, —High Productivity – NCREL & Metiri  Group, 2003) and the exits of the K to 12 Curriculum (Higher Education, —Middle Level Skills Development, —Entrepreneurship, —Employment -Department of Education).

Some of these are presented below:

I ended my presentation with this evaluative comment on the whole program:

“—Senior High School Modelling Program equipped high school graduates with work skills and positive attitudes to go on with life more productively. —As an instructor, I got the best opportunity to plow on a fertile land of aspiring students who want to change their lives and to become part of the labor force. —Despite of all the challenges we faced during the first two years of implementation, I still believe that SHSMP has marked a difference to the lives of the first batch of graduates.”

The CamSur visit was made possible through coordination with the Division Office of Quezon. We were glad that they mentioned positive comments after the visit according to Sir Don. This simply was a testament of the hard work and dedication of the people behind this program. 🙂



Housewarming of Alumni Office

Having a house calls for a housewarming. According to dictionaries online, housewarming is a celebration of the occupancy of a new home, a party to celebrate moving into a new home, or a party to celebrate the taking possession of a house or premises. Our home in our dear alma mater, Canda National High School, is now ready to be occupied after one year. And this called for a housewarming!

Taken literally, the house needed warmth because it was cold for not being occupied for more than one year since its construction in May 2014 (roof and walls only). The second part of the construction that included finishing the walls and cementing the floor was on January 2015. Last month, July 2015, the door and the steel windows were fixed. Lastly, the electrical wirings and lightings were furnished.

The housewarming for our Alumni Office was conducted today, August 4, 2015 (Tuesday). We have prepared in advance for this event by cleaning the office and fixing the bulletin board. I have sent out the invitations to the teachers who are alumni of Canda NHS, the School-based Management Coordinator, the principal, and the key officers of Canda NHS Alumni Association.

And the day came. At 3:30 pm, all the invited people came one by one. Mr. Bryan Tolentino, the president, arrived early. Then, the teacher alumni came one by one. It seemed like a happy reunion since we were always busy in school and we rarely had chances of meeting like this.

When everyone was ready, Mr. President started the meeting by expressing his gratitude for the support extended to the construction of the Alumni Office. He also emphasized that the office would be a venue for meetings and affairs of the Alumni Association as well as a house for memorabilia regarding alumni. Lastly, he also mentioned future plans and goals for the group.


Afterwards, as the treasurer of the organization, I presented the financial statement of the organization and the construction of the Alumni Office.


Here it is:

The Alumni Office was a collaborative project made possible by all the support extended by the alumni of Canda NHS. This is our “home”, our Bahay-Alumni. All graduates of Canda NHS are welcome to visit and drop by the office when you visit our school. And of course, all alumni are also enjoined to help furnish our office. Based on the financial statement, there is still a big amount to settle. And as you can see in the photos, the office still needs to be painted and furnished with ceiling. Furniture like sala set, even old but still functional, may be donated. The office also needs a comfort room and a kitchen (sink, utensils, etc.) for future gatherings like this and to entertain alumni who visit our school. For this objective, the teacher alumni and officers were given envelopes for solicitations:


After the formal meeting and presentation of the financial statement, the second part of the program started, and that is “warming” our stomach with hot sopas with boiled egg. Yehey! Plus a cake that is beautifully decorated.


Now, the office is warm. Well, not literally, but in spirit, it is. Because we all care for our Bahay-Alumni.

We hope to see you all Canda NHS alumni in our “home” soon! Everyone is welcome to visit! Keep in touch for updates for the next activities and schedule of homecoming!

Help Build the Alumni Office

Calling all alumni of Canda National High School, let us help build the Alumni Office which is now under construction. But because of the very small budget, the construction could not continue.

The budget for the construction was collected through the donations and contributions last Grand Alumni Homecoming on December 30, 2013. The total budget collected amounted to P48,920.00. 25% or P12,230.00 was donated to the school for improvement of facilities and land purchase. The 50% or P24,460.00 of the said budget was agreed to be used to construct the Alumni Office during the turnover and meeting last April 14, 2014 by the outgoing officers headed by Mr. Michael R. Magkalas and the incoming officers led by Mr. Bryan P. Tolentino. The remaining 25% is still deposited in the joint account of Mr. Tolentino and Ms. Donna Regulto (Treasurer).

Here are some photos of the partially constructed office:






For your donations, you can contact the following:

Help build the Alumni Office to make it functional as soon as possible. We’ll be very glad to hear from you soon! God bless us all!

My First Layouting Project Ever

For the first time in the history of being a campus journalist/adviser, I managed to do a layout for a campus paper. The sleepless nights and stress are all worth it. We have not won in the Regional Schools Press Conference last January, but the campus paper served as ticket for the three DSPC winners to join the RSPC in Dasmarinas City, Cavite.

How could this seemingly impossible project be possible in one week? Yes, in one week’s time because the super duper deadline of submission to the Regional Office of DepEd-CALABARZON was on January 17, 2014 and we just started the layout on Monday, January 13, 2014. Well, as a beginner to layouting, I downloaded many PDF tutorials from the internet. I also recollected some techniques learned from friends who are experts in Adobe InDesign and Photoshop from observing and editing .indd projects for campus papers, souvenir programs, and yearbooks when I was still at Southern Luzon State University, Lucban, Quezon. During those times, my friends who were doing the lay-outing then were generous enough to share tips and techniques in layouting. Plus, Google has always been so supportive giving me helpful links on all my ‘how-to’ queries.

I consider this project an achievement, a product of our collaborative efforts. No words could express my awe and admiration to the intelligent mind of Mrs. Ana D. Arandia. She tirelessly filtered and edited the journalistic and creative write-ups which are amateurishly written by the campus journalists. During the whole week, we shared the nights with at most three hours sleep only. This dedicated campus paper adviser spent these nights away from her family except for one night when her three boys (her husband and two sons) slept, too, at the ICT room. These nights we spent editing, lay-outing, sometimes chatting, and even hearing tapping from the keyboards with no people around except the two of us (creepy!). At last, the four nights, and at least five days fruited into something that bore the name of hardwork and dedication to campus journalism. We finished the editing and layout of ANG KANDA (Vol. 19. No.1) and submitted it (soft copy pdf) to the adviser of The Coconut of Quezon NHS just before they handed in the other campus papers at the Regional Office.

This endeavor, of course, would not be possible without the help of the two other co-advisers, Mrs. Joan Kathleen Brizuela and Mrs. Marites Quesea, and the cooperation of the campus journalists such as Marish Catibog, Marjun Mendoza, Jan May Bilaro, Jessa de Mesa and Jeannille Bundalian who also spent a night for the editing of the printed layout. And the delivery of the food and my clothes? Thanks to my ever supportive parents, Mr. Ignacio and Delia Regulto. The understanding of our school heads and co-teachers and all of our classes whom we left behind after the periodical exam the other week were immeasurable. One week without getting inside my own advisory class made me miss my students. But after we finished the project in the morning, we needed to doze off so I went home early morning of January 17. We also scheduled ourselves available (Ma’am Ana and Marjun) during the next day, January 18 to submit the paper to the printing press at Lucena City.

Layouting is actually a job of student journalists. But, since this is my first year in my new school, I took the challenge because I needed to fully experience the messy part of being a campus paper adviser. Plus, how can I teach my students to do the layouting themselves if I myself do not know it? Of course, the skills will not be solely mine. I am actually thinking of a workshop or sessions in learning Adobe Photoshop and InDesign for both campus paper advisers and aspiring layout artists. However, there are roadblocks here  such as the availability of equipment, the computer, which should be capable of Adobe software and high specs for graphics. To be able to this during the next school year is again another endeavor. So help campus paper advisers God!

P.S. Thank you Sir Gleeson Catahumber for installing Adobe CS3 on my laptop.

Young Writers’ Camp for Campus Journalism

A Narrative Report

Venue: Canda National High School

Brgy. Canda, Sariaya, Quezon

Date: August 2-4, 2013

In strong support of R.A. 7079 also known as Campus Journalism Act of 1991, that promotes the development and growth of campus journalism, the secondary schools of Cluster IV-Sariaya Chapter, led by Canda National High School and Lutucan National High School, organized a training workshop for campus journalists in preparation for the forthcoming press conferences. Moreover, the training workshop helped newly established secondary schools of this municipality to start establishing their own publication staff and publishing their own school paper.

In preparation for this training workshop, the lead persons, Mrs. Ana D. Arandia and Ms. Donna C. Regulto of Canda National High School and Ms. Shiela Niña L. Rea of Lutucan National High School, met for several times in July 2013 to talk about the flow of the program, to invite resource speakers, to set the venue and date, and to prepare the project proposal to be submitted to the office of the Division of Quezon for approval.

After the copy of the project proposal were signed by the principals of Canda National High School and Lutucan National High School, the lead persons submitted it to the office of the Education Program Supervisor for English, Helen L. Panol, and the Schools Division Superintendent, Tolentino G. Aquino, CESO VI, for approval. They suggested that the proposed registration of each student which was P175.00/each be discarded so that the students would not be burdened financially. With this recommendation, the organizers decided that there would not be any registration fees for the participants. The participants would just bring their own food or buy their food at the school canteen. Moreover, the organizers would solicit financial support from the local government and would use existing fund of the two publications, Ang Kanda and The Bridge. With this modification in terms of budgetary requirements, the EPS and SDS sent their go signal to pursue the program through Mr. Jessie V. Vasquez, the principal of Canda National High School.

The organizers made the necessary preparations. They prepared the letters of invitation to the resource speakers and handed them right away. These resource speakers who would share their expertise with the students willingly agreed to spend time and teach the participants for free. The financial support needed to buy some tokens for the resource speakers was sought from Mayor Rosauro V. Masilang, the municipal mayor of Sariaya, Quezon, through his Executive Assistant, Mr. Marion D. Saligay.

The first weekend of August finally came. The venue was prepared as well as all the rooms for accommodation, the session rooms, and the covered court. Furthermore, the facilities and equipment to be used were all set beforehand. The teachers from Canda National High School who helped in the preparation of the school facilities were Mr. Cesar L. Zarsuelo, School Facilities Coordinator, and Mr. Edmundo V. Manalo, Property Custodian. The teachers who also supported the conduct of the training workshop included the canteen manager, Mrs. Remily T. Magpantay who prepared the food for the speakers and participants, and Mr. Mark Anthony C. Vera who helped with the transportation of the resource speakers from the town proper to the school. Of course, the co-advisers of Ang Kanda, Mrs. Maritess N. Quesea and Mrs. Joan Kathleen T. Brizuela, acted as facilitators during the conduct of the training workshop. The event was also possible with the help of utility workers and security guards.
