The theme for this year’s foundation is Disney, a theme that related to our childhood, magic, and colorful memories.  

The Foundation week started on February 13, 2018 at morning with a Thanksgiving Mass. After the mass is the Field Demonstration where students from different levels compete for the best performance based on Disney animated movies. The rendition of The Lion King by the College Students won first place.  For lunch, there were many choices of food and drinks, as well as toys and other memorabilia available during the foundation week celebration along the school lobby and quadrangle. In the afternoon, selected talented students from different levels showcased their talents at the Grand Finals of NCBA’s Got Talent and James Cachuela from the High School Department became the Grand Winner.

On February 14th the foundation celebration continued with fun activities such as Dance Revolution, Club Fun Day, Service Awards Ceremony, and the hip-hop/music/dance contest. Several College students clashed with their knowledge to be the champion of 2nd Battle of the Brains and Expontaneous speech.  In the afternoon, NCBA Cubao’s Dance Troupe Kalinangan Ensemble (KE) held a dance competition called “Dance Mania” which was participated by several dance groups from NCBA Cubao and other schools and colleges.
