NCBA elem/high school department joined the annual sports festival last November 6-13, 2017. Intramural began with a parade led by the NCBA Drum and Lyre. It then ascended to the lightening of torch which was welcomed with thundering applause from the students. As soon as everyone gathered into their proper places, the pageant of Miss Intramural 2017 started. The title was battled among 11 gorgeous ladies from junior high school department, while there were ten elegant muses from senior high. Each were equipped with their best sport outfit, clothed with confidence, and carried a bright smile to outdo all the competing candidates. Finally, Kristine Faith D. Manalo was hailed Miss Intramural 2017 for junior high and Shalom L. Castillo for senior high.

What came after were all the sports which all the students have been waiting for namely basketball boys, volleyball boys and girls, badminton, table tennis and chess. The gymnasium and all the gaming areas were painted of the sight of players in their colorful jerseys. Amidst all the droplets of sweats, screams due to body aches, deafening cheers, and wild breathings rose the determination, teamwork, hard work, and the heart aspiring to claim victory. During those days, we witnessed how NCBAnians excelled not just academically, but also, in the field of sports.

College Teachers’ Day

College Teachers’ Day

“True teachers are those who use themselves as bridges over which they invite their students to cross; then, having facilitated their crossing, joyfully collapse, encouraging them to create their own.”   – Nikos Kazantzakis

September 29, 2017 was a very special day.  Yes, Teacher’s Day!!! This time, the college students were bedazzled (or probably bewildered…joke) by the teachers who participated in the games.  As in the past, it was the students who gave tribute to their teachers through performing in a program.  This year is a different story.  The teachers gave their best in basketball shooting, egg balancing, tumbang preso, sipa, jack en poy, hampas palayok, and egg catching among others.  Male and female teachers alike took their turn in shooting hoops at designated spots.  Of course we had a change of heart for the ladies; they used volleyballs. And note that some attempted ten shots in their high heels.  Now who says fashion and basketball don’t mix? Yep, they’re right!  Male teachers showed different strokes on how to throw a ball into the hoop, and the gallery went wild for every shot! The seasoned teachers showed gusto. Heard the bones creaking, too.  The Palarong Pinoy also showcased the teacher’s deep competitiveness. The students gave the teachers a run for their money in the jack en poy.  But the best part of the games was the egg catching thing.  The teachers were really having the distance covered against the student pair.  Alas, eggs splattered everywhere.  All in all, the teacher’s day was a blast!

College Intramurals

College Intramurals

The NCBA Taytay Campus held its college intramurals last August 14-16, 2017.  Every department was looking forward to this annual event wherein sports are a respite from all the academic preparations.  Of course, students also want to cheer for their respective teams.  The event started by 1 pm, with a simple parade which started from the main lobby marching onwards to the college gymnasium.  The ceremonies started with a simple program hosted by the DSA.

The Over-All Championship was hotly contested by the BSBA and the BSA departments. After the smoked has cleared, BSBA wounded up the best team for a record 7th consecutive “Over-all” title.
