A freedom wall was also installed so they can express their thoughts and feelings for the new school year. Each student was provided stubs for the photo booth, face painting booth, and food.

Postdoctoral Researcher Neal Matherne gave a brief talk on the Philippine Collection at the Marshall Field Museum of Chicago to selected arts, music, and social studies faculty at the Basic Education Unit last September 14, 2016. His discourse focused on the revolutionary development in the inclusion of local cultural stakeholders in the practice of curation, expanding access for both amateur and professional experts. Philippine Co-curation is a program unit within the Field Museum with original programming and accessible heritage resources.

Dr. Matherne is a recent graduate in Ethnomusicology and Southeast Asian Studies from the University of California, Riverside. His 2014 dissertation, "Naming the Artist, Composing the Philippines: Listening for the Nation in National Artist Award," focuses on how both material rewards and performative declarations by the Philippine government reveal the complicated—and at times troubled—interplay between nation, state, and artist, exemplified by the Order of National Artists, the highest form of state recognition with Marcos-era roots.

Continuing this work on memory and history in the Philippine Context, he is both participant and observer at the Philippine Co-curation Initiative at the Field Museum. 

Now on its second year, the Middle School’s Leaders League was celebrated through an activity dubbed ‘Leaders League Y.2’ from August 8-12, 2016. 

Various activities that were especially chosen to hone the leadership potentials and skills of the Grade 6, 7 and 8 class officers and volunteers were held. Talks and speed learning sessions conducted by community mentors and experts helped identify the qualities every leader should have.

A workshop by Ethos, the High School Speech Club, trained the participants to speak in public and improve their confidence.  These dynamic leaders also enjoyed games which developed teamwork, creativity, and camaraderie. Pocket activities held at the unit grounds encouraged self-expression and individualism.

It was a week full of fun and exciting activities that empowered the leaders of tomorrow.
