Induction of the new set of HSA Officers

Induction of the new set of HSA Officers

S.Y 2017 – 2018

Last August 11, 2017, the new set of HSA officers that were elected last March 17, 2017 had now been duly inducted by NCBA’s Academic Coordinator. The induction of officers started at 2:00 in the afternoon, and the entire High School body witnessed the event. The new set of officers headed by the new HSA President had sworn in the name of our Lord to uphold the ideas and by-laws of the organization, and to help attain HSA goals and objectives. After the induction of HSA officers, we organized a mock club shopping event so that every club may have their pictorial as a whole. After the mock club shopping, we had a flag retreat. All in all, the whole program ended at 2:30 and the students were dismissed by their advisers.

I believe that the attainment of HSA goals and objectives would only be achieved with the full coordination of the students, the HSA officers, the faculty, and the Principal, and we have also promised that the activities we will be proposing will be beneficial to our 50 – year old Educational Institution.

Basic Life Support and First Aid Seminar

Basic Life Support and First Aid Seminar

The National College of Business and Arts Cubao held a seminar entitled, “Basic Life Support and First aid Lay Rescuers”. The school’s Community Outreach Program headed by Ms. Catherine Calamlam, a faculty member of Liberal Arts in NCBA Fairview, who in turn is oversaw by none other than the Assistant Vice President for Marketing and Placement Mrs. Mariflor M. Uber, had invited five Registered Nurses from Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital to be the lecturers in the said seminar, led by Gloria D. Domingo RN EMT, together with Carla Pamella N Guban RN, Fritz Garret C. Bonite RN, Arnold O. Carcosio RN, and Amorsolo G. Papa RN RMT. The seminar started at exactly 9:03 am, I invited twenty-three high school students, of which nineteen attended. Every High School Assembly officer was present except for the Grade 12 Representative, Julienne Francesca S. Talabis. The high school students were under the supervision of Ms. Anna Vanessa E. Batallones, Mr. Virgilio A. Bautista II, and Ms. Isabelle Mae C. Mauricio. Mrs. Domingo’s three hour lecture was both entertaining and informative, she was calm throughout the seminar until she got a little mad at the college students who were taking the seminar as a joke. She apologized for releasing a little tension, but we understand her fully. Before ending the seminar,  the attendees and the honorable guests did a mass Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation Demonstration, where all attendees were partnered and practiced CPR. At the end of the Seminar, Mrs. Uber spoke in front for about fifteen minutes about the Community Outreach Program.

Overall, the seminar went on to be a beneficial practice in saving lives, and I hope that we get to attend the 2 nd part of the seminar next week, August 12, 2017. The Seminar ended at 12:20 noon, and the HSA officers took a picture with the guests, Ms. Calamlam, and Mrs. Uber. The High School attendees were dismissed by Mr. Virgilio Bautista II at 12:40 noon.

Each grade level’s presentation was held inside their classroom. The celebration was aimed to promote healthy eating and diet habits. Students live in a modern world where technology has revolved around their daily lives.  Obtaining information, items, food and almost anything is easier than ever before; eating instant food instead of the healthier option is also what the youth prefer. This event does not only focus on the celebration of Nutrition Month but also showcases their knowledge and skills in preparing and presenting the food in creative way.
