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 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.
