One of the most anticipated events especially for freshmen students and the pioneering grade 11 students was the Acquaintance Party. Last July 15, 2016 at the Function Hall of the newly contructed Archbishop Jose Palma Building, Grade 11 students gathered together with their respective animators to start a bond with one another. It was a “Coachella-Bohemian themed” where the senior high students flaunt their outfits. Sperry Mendez , Grade 11 of St. Louis De Montfort community and Lyssa Felisilda of St. Joseph Khang hosted the said event, it started with a prayer and the singing of the National Anthem. Ms. Letitia Luce S. Florido, Vice Principal for Senior High School, delivered her opening remarks and highlighted the importance of the experience and meeting new friends and acquaintances during the event. Subsequently, the yell chanting in each community proceeded. Each section showcased their talents through a prepared presentation. The students displayed their ability to work well with others and co-teammates engaging in the games.
On the 25th of July 2016, the grade 7 students took a chance on getting to know with each other. Vishnu F. Satorre and Alexia Barde were the hosts of the event. The students were required to wear something red. Every community performed two presentations, a dance and a song presentation. They participated on different games which draw them closer. It was a refreshing start for both grade 7 and Grade 11 students. The said event ended successfully.
Noong ika-26 ng Agosto taong 2016 ay ipinagdiriwang ang paghahantong ng Buwan ng Wika na ang tema ay “Filipino: Wika ng Karunungan” bilang paggunita o pagpupugay kay Manuel L. Quezon. Siya ay tinaguriang “ Ama ng Wikang Pilipino” at ang unang pangulo ng Commonwealth sa Pilipinas.
Ipinagdiriwang ito sa pamamagitan ng iba’t ibang gawain tulad ng madulang sabayang pagbibigkas, dula-dulaan, tula, awit, sayawit, at pagsulat ng sanaysay. Ang mga gawaing ito ay nilahokan ng lahat ng mag-aaral mula sa Kindergarten, Elementarya, Sekondarya at maging sa Kolehiyo upang maging matagumpay ang nasabing pagdiriwang na naglalayon ng pagkakaroon ng isang wikang pambansa na magbubuklod sa lahat ng mga mamamayan o tao saan mang dako sa mundo.
Taos-puso po tayong nagpapasalamat sa Panginoon dahil sa ipinagkaloob niyang biyaya sa atin at naging matagumpay ang pagdiriwang.
Kudos! The newly elected elementary, high school, and senior high school class officers and club officers of the academic year 2016 – 2017, took their oath last July 1, 2016 at St. Catherine of Alexandria Parish Church. It started with a solemn Holy Spirit Mass presided over by Rev. Fr. Candado Gonzalo. The oath taking ceremony followed as a testimony to support the declaration that has been made.
The class and club officers recited together the oath of responsibility in front of the altar.
St. Catherine’s College is now hoping for a great change that could somehow bring these leaders as a response to their vows, for the betterment of the school and the whole student body.
St. Catherine’s College celebrated its annual culmination of Nutrition Month last July 29, 2016. The theme was “1000 Days ni Baby Pahalagahan para sa Malusog na Kinabukasan” and the venue took place at the Function Hall where many people gathered to celebrate this year’s culmination event.
Its mission is to ensure that public awareness of healthy foods should be made important for all people. This was shown through jingles and infomercials as a contest. By realizing these to the school’s pupils, they learned the positive and negative effects of their eating habits while also preparing for a healthy life.
The infomercial was done by students who were actors themselves. Each part reflects the importance of being healthy and the props usually represented both sides that people are likely to experience when eating.
Bulletin boards supported the posters made by showing contrasting pictures of healthy and unhealthy foods along with their “personalities”.
Lastly, the jingles provided excitement to the audience with their dance moves accompanied by melodic verses. General reaction was positive and many people saw this as a way of getting healthy. It also gave them sufficient knowledge of topics related to nutrition.
