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.

Nutrition Month

Nutrition Month

As part of the yearly school activities, the “Nutrition Month Celebration” was held last July 21, 2017 at National College of Business and Arts – Cubao, Quezon City with the theme “Healthy Diet, gawing Habit for life”.  It was led by Mrs. Veronica F. Caro together with the help of the T.L.E. Department head and teachers Ms. Eileen Estrada, Ms. Jaqueline Mogar, and Ms. Bea R. Sayasa as well as other subjects in SHS that’s connected in promoting good health.

The celebration was joined by the students from JHS from Grades 7 – 10 and SHS from Grades 11 – 12. The presentations for grade levels were as follows:

Grade 7 – Food Presentation

Grade 8 – Food Presentation

Grade 9 – Food Presentation

Grade 10 – Jingle Making

Grade 11 – Promoting Healthy Diet

Grade 12 – Food Presentation with Table Skirting

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.

Leadership and Journalism Seminar

Leadership and Journalism Seminar

To train the students to become good and effective leaders and to educate the proper way of writing their campus paper are the reasons why the Office of Students Affairs conducted the Leadership and Journalism Seminar last July 8, 2017. The participants were the newly-elected officers of the different recognized student-organizations. The Junior Public Institute of Accountants (JPIA), Bachelor of Arts and Education Society (ABSS), Hotel and Restaurant Management Society (HRMS), Junior Financial Executives (JMA), Human Resource Development Association (HRDMA), Junior Marketing Association (JMA), Information System Society (ISSOC) Kalinangan Ensemble, ROTARACT-CUBAO and The New Frontier Staff were among those who attended.

The lecturers were alumni from the National College of Business and Arts Fairview campus, Ms. Katrina Senosin, BSEd English major, Magna Cum Laude, Batch 2010 and Albert Martinez, BSEd English major, Batch 2012, former President of Society of Empowered Education Students (SEEdS). The students were given a lecture and workshop during the seminar to enhance their skills.



Students who are engaged in school organizations tend to learn the importance of leadership and camaraderie. Through academic clubs, they will be able to share their talents and abilities while having fun. The students can also learn worthwhile lessons from their experiences, which can serve as motivation to their students.

Last July 7, 2017 a “club shopping” day was held in the high school department of the National College of Business and Arts – Cubao. The students from Grades 7 – 10 were given the opportunity to choose from eight academic clubs. Grades 11 – 12 Senior High School students were automatically designated to the clubs that corresponds to their strand. The following are the clubs available for the students to choose from:

  • Math
  • Science
  • English
  • Filipino
  • L.E
  • Araling Panlipunan
  • and the two strands, General Academic Strand (GAS), and Accountancy and Business Management (ABM)

The club shopping started at 1:45 pm. The students excitedly chose their desired clubs and were required to pay a fifty peso registration fee.
