The Middle School kicked off their celebration of the National Arts Month through an exhibit at the Our lady of Peace Lobby last February 1, 2017. The Dance Club creatively led the unveiling with a dance interpretation. Carrying the theme “Art Feast”, the event showcased not only the students’ art work but also several dishes guised as art activities.
Long buffet tables laid were laid out in the Calachuchi Garden where students held their Entrep Art from February 1 to 2. Grade 8 students, with the able guidance of their HELE teachers, experienced how it is to be entrepreneurs as they sold maki and decorative cupcakes. The Cartoonists club, with the help of their club moderators, offered printing services, while Tiny Path sold art supplies. The students experienced what it’s like to be entrepreneurs first hand as they prepared, marketed, and sold their products. They also learned simple accounting, doing the inventory and computation of their profits or losses. The activity taught them how to run a business and at the same time how to use art could be used to attract more clients.
Another activity featured was the interaction between the MCMS students and the MC HEU Applied Arts students last February 2, 2017. College students from the Department of Humanities and Applied Arts taught MS students basic drawing techniques, calligraphy, animation, and photography.
Several contests such as the PICS Perfect Photography contest for Grade 6 (February 16), On-the-Spot Art for the Grade 7 (February 17) and the Eight Asian Treasures (February 28) were also held, capping the MS National Arts Month celebration.
Last February 15, Pax Christi-MCHS members together with members of SilPeace, the interfaith youth organization of Silsilah from Quiapo, participated in a meaningful interaction session to learn about youth peacebuilding and how our different religious beliefs can bring us together. The student members of SilPeace are from Ramon Avencena High School and Manuel L. Quezon University High School.
The participants discussed practical and realistic solutions to issues such as the growing threat of terrorism, religious intolerance, and discrimination. These solutions include the promotion of dialogue through people to people process especially among young people, and the role of education to address misconceptions.
The session became an eye opener to many of the participants and served as the beginning of more committed work towards a world free from hate and religious intolerance. It was facilitated by Mary Ann Lascano, moderator of MC-HS Pax Christi, Alfrein Quirionez from SilPeace and Mirma Tica-Ortiz, moderator of the Pax Christi-Miriam College.

Selected students from the twin schools Miriam College High School and Middle School and the Rajah Muda National High School (RMNHS), marked the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week with a Youth Peacebuilding Workshop on campus last February 6-7, 2014.
The workshop opened with a public forum on the theme, “Celebrating Life with Mercy and Compassion”, attended by some 200 students from the Middle School, High School, and the HEU.
The RMNHS students, who have travelled from Pikit, North Cotabato, also had teambuilding activities and a wider interaction with High School students as well as a mini-workshop on Muslim-Christian dialogue. The two groups of students also shared their past peace-related activities and their plans for the coming months.
The CPE is grateful to the committee that helped organize the various activities. They are Mao Rovillos, Mean Lascano, Ann Gabuat, Ato de la Cruz, and Pax Christi with Mirma Tica as moderator.
The MCHS Glee Club together with the Cultural and Classical Dance Club (CCDC) held their 12th joint concert dubbed “Sa ‘Tin” last February 3 and 4 at the Marian Auditorium.
The two day concert was held for the MC and high school community and for the family and friends of the performers. At the helm is BEU Admissions Officer and MCHS Glee Glub conductor Nancy Roman.
The MCHS and CCDC sang and danced to Filipino classics and well-loved OPM songs to the delight of the audiences. “We featured an all-OPM repertoire so we thought that “Sa ‘Tin” short for Sa Atin or Sariling Atin would be fitting. The concert also coincided with the celebration National Arts Month,” said Roman.
Among the songs featured were a medley of Saranggola ni Pepe, Mamang Sorbetero and Kalesa; medley of Galawgaw, Waray-Waray, Dalagang Pilipina and Manang Biday; ‘Til I Met You; Kapag Tumibok ang Puso; Ikaw Lamang; Forever More; and Paalam Na.
The CCDC and MCHS Glee Club have mounted several concerts since 2003 and “we have not stopped collaborating since then,” said Roman.
Miriam College, through the Miriam Adult Education (MAE), and the Schools Division of Marikina City signed a memorandum of agreement last January 17, recognizing the latter as “feeder schools of Grade 10 students to the MAE’s Senior High School Program.” There are currently 15 schools under the Division’s jurisdiction.
The MOA gives MAE a wide breadth of opportunity to continue the Maryknoll Sisters’ legacy of service and mission to the poor and the underprivileged under the K to 12 educational reform.
The partnership between the school and the Division started in School Year 2016-2017, the same year MAE implemented its Senior High School Program. The partnership was only formalized this month.
Present at the signing were Dr. Maria Lourdes Q. Baybay, Miriam College Vice President for Academic Affairs representing the general administration, and Dr. Helen Grace V. Go, Marikina Schools Division Superintendent, representing the Schools Division of Marikina City.
Witnesses were (in photo, from left): Josephine T. Trajeco, BEU registrar; Maria Luisa V. Villano, former HEU Admission Officer; Glenda R. Villanueva, MAE principal; Dr. Maria Lourdes Q. Baybay, Miriam College vice president for Academic Affairs; Dr. Helen Grace V. Go, Marikina Schools Division superintendent; Dr. Samuel C. Mergenio, Senior Education Program specialist for Social Mobilization and Networking; Joseph T. Santos, SHS Division coordinator; Herbert Janubas, MAE assistant principal; Leilanie N. Villanueva, SHS Career Guidance chairperson; Sunny T. Cortes, SHS Career Guidance member and senior volunteer teacher of MAE; and Elisa O. Cerveza, CID chief. Not in photo is Miriam College President Dr. Rosario Lapus who signed the MOA earlier.
It was Villano who was instrumental in the planning, coordination, and fund sourcing for the MAE SHS Program.
The Child Study Center, in coordination with the Environmental Studies Institute, celebrated Environment Week in November 2016 through the project, “From Garden to Table”.
During the week, Kinder students were tasked to plant string beans to add to the CSC’s existing crops of eggplants and mustard, among other vegetables. Nursery students, on the other hand, harvested eggplants for the first time, cutting the stems themselves and putting them in baskets.
A parent volunteer taught the children how to make vegetable omelet dish using the eggplants they harvested.
The year-long “From Garden to Table” project aims to teach students appreciation of the environment and their role as stewards of God’s creation. It also hopes to engage them in meaningful activities to show gratitude for the environment and the gifts of God.
SIX Filipino footballers earned tickets to the 12-day Astro Kem Bola Overseas Training Programme in Barcelona, Spain this December after undergoing rigid training and tryouts held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia last month.
The six are Lance Lawrence Locsin, Jared Alexander Pena, Ryan Philip Johansson, Astrid Heiress Ignacio, Mikaela Jacqueline Villacin, and Jasmined Cassandra Agustin.
Together, they are part of the 32 players who get the chance to train with top Premier League team FC Barcelona from Dec. 5 to 20.
“These six kids will go to Barcelona to train with the best team in the world,” said Rofil Sheldon Magto, Globe citizenship manager, who presented two of the kids in the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) Forum Tuesday at Shakey’s Malate together with Philippine Azkals assistant coach Chieffy Caligdong, also the Globe sports development manager and team captain of Green Archers United.
Astrid Ignacio, 12, and Locsin, 10 said they are both looking forward to the great experience, and of course, meeting Barca star players such as Lionel Messi, Neymar, and Andres Iniesta.
“I expect to learn more knowledge and skills, and at the same time, meet in person Barcelona players Mesi and Neymar,” said Ignacio, a Miriam College student who’s playing football for three years now.
Barcelona of course, is home to legendary Filipino-Spanish football superstar Paulinho Alcantara, who was recently surpassed by Mesi as the team’s all-time highest goal scorer.
The six players were among the 12 Filipinos who qualified for the Astro Kem Bola camp held in the Malaysian capital last September, where a total of 72 players from Malaysia and Singapore participated.
“Attitude and positive character, yun ang pinakaiba sa kanila at hindi basta yung training na binigay sa kanila sa Malaysia,” said Caligdong on what he sees in Ignacio and Locsin that allowed them to be included in the once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The team was the product of a two-month long TM Football Para Sa Bayan (TM FPSB) talent search organized by Globe Telecom in July and August.
Globe was tapped by Astro Kasih, the corporate foundation and corporate social responsibility of Malaysia media and entertainment powerhouse Astro, to be its partner in discovering talented young athletes and helping them further harness their craft.
Globe director for Citizenship Fernando Esguerra expressed elation over the selection of the six players especially after going through tough competition against players from the South East Asian region.

Meet millennial kid Charlie Manzano, the bemedalled 4-foot-4 package who has yet to grasp how good she can be in a sport in quest of a new heroine
Spotting gymnast Ancilla Lucia Mari “Charlie” Manzano as a naturally gifted athlete was easy.
Hanging from a bar, Charlie managed to do the pullover, a move in which a gymnast flips over a horizontal rod. She was just four.
“The first time we saw her on the bars, we were surprised,” says Mark Mogol, one of Charlie’s coaches at Club Gymnastica. “Right away, she knew how to hang. Then she did the pullover. And we said, ‘Wow, this kid is good.’”
It was just a summer gymnastics class. Charlie’s parents signed her up, thinking nothing much of it, just an activity their only child might enjoy just like when she did ballet.
So when coaches gave the heads-up that their daughter may be a bundle of talent, it was all a surprise.
“There’s really no one into sports in the family,” Charlie’s mother, Noreen, says with a laugh. “I wondered where she got it from.”
Charlie admits having little memory of her first foray into the sport. Now 10, there’s still no telling though if this lithe 4-foot-4 package has already grasped how good she can be.
Months after her incredible debut in the 2016 Palarong Pambansa— where she won four gold medals in all—Charlie remains as the quiet but highly efficient student.
“From the start, we knew that Charlie can compete,” says Mogol. “But the problem that we had was she doesn’t talk much. When you talk to her, she just nods. But it turned out to be good because she just follows our instructions. Other gymnasts can say yes, but they can’t do it. With Charlie, it’s automatic. Once she nods, she gets it.”
Charlie, though, isn’t exactly shy.
After a recent club tournament, where Charlie bagged the all-around title, she looked happy hanging out with gymnast friends and checking her socials on her smart phone.
But ask her how the tournament was and Charlie will say, “It’s fun.”
Push more questions, like if she found any event difficult or if she got nervous, Charlie nods in each one.
“That’s how she is,” says Noreen. “When I tutor her at home, she listens and follows. Sometimes, she just keeps saying yes. So I tell her, ‘You have to show me that you know that.’ But after her test, it turns out okay. She knows.”
“It’s the same thing in the gym,” adds Noreen. “You’d think she didn’t absorb it. But in competition, you can see she actually understood it.”
A dentist by profession, Noreen gave up her career after getting pregnant with Charlie. She’s now a dedicated athlete’s mom, driving Charlie to training five times a week, accompanying her to local and international tournaments, while also making sure that she balances her sport and studies.
“I guess it’s all fun for her,” says Noreen. “But what’s important for us is she’s enjoying it. We ask her everytime in competition if it’s okay, if she wants to do this. If she says yes, then we go.”
Charlie, now a fifth grader at Miriam College, also excels in school as she has been a consistent recipient of the academic excellence award.
On the gym floor, she has hauled over 50 medals in four years of competition in local events and two international club tournaments in Singapore and Bangkok, where she again ruled as the individual all-around winner.
“She was six years old in her first competition,” says Mogol. “She competed against gymnasts who already won medals before. But she won the all-around right away, so we knew that this kid will get even better.”
Last April, just four months before she turned 10, Charlie emerged as an instant star in the 2016 Palaro in Legazpi City, Albay. Debuting on the biggest national stage for young athletes, Charlie made it all look easy as she picked up gold medals in the single bar, floor exercises and team event, on top of silvers in the balance beam and vault, to run away with the all-around title.
“At first, her mommy was having second thoughts if Charlie could really compete in the Palaro,” Mogol recalls. “But after seeing her win the overall title in the NCR (National Capital Region-Palaro) qualifiers, we knew she could do it. So we kept telling her mommy not to worry about Charlie.”
Noreen thinks the pressure of competing weighs more on her and husband Inky than on Charlie herself.
“I’m the one who gets stressed,” says Noreen. “I pray the novena. I really get nervous when she competes.”
But Charlie’s parents have already braced themselves for more of it.
“Our goal for her is to be a member of the Philippine team, to be one of the best gymnasts in the Philippines,” says Mogol. “She can be in the national pool by 14 or 15, be in the junior team.”
Save for her sparkly leotard, there’s no air about her that she’s a rising gymnast armed with remarkable flexibility.
Ask Charlie what motivates her and who she looks up to, she just shrugs.
“You like Bea Lucero, right?” Noreen offers.
Thirty years ago, Lucero inspired many young girls to do cartwheels and flips after a popular chocolate drink commercial made the cute, peppy gymnast the face of the sport.
But since then, there hasn’t been a local gymnast who captured the nation’s heart the way Lucero did.
Charlie’s coaches believes she can. Her family hopes she can. And Charlie may just do it, even if it’s in in her own quiet way.
