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.

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 dream catcher, a circular framed net believed to capture good dreams and dissolve bad ones, was the inspiration for the Middle School’s Communication Arts Week celebration. Held on November 28 to December 2, 2016, it carried the theme “DreamCatcher: Awakening Ideas".
The festivities opened with a grand ceremony that included a dream sequence play and an inspirational video message from London-based award-winning Filipino author Candy Gourlay. This was followed by a showcase of costumes by administrators, faculty and Grades 6, 7, and 8 students who came dressed in their favorite fictional and real life ‘dreamers’ such as Anne of Green Gables and Jose Rizal.

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.

Middle School’s College Week celebration, which ran from September 5-9, was anchored on two big institutional events—the launch of the Miriam College-Henry Sy Sr. Innovation Center and the opening of the school’s 90th Anniversary celebrations. The unit came up with unique, creative and innovative activities that celebrate the uniqueness of each learner.
The first half of the week dubbed “How Board Are You?” showcased life-sized board games and puzzles with fun and innovative ways on how to play them. The second half, themed “We Serve with All Our Might”, introduced activities that emphasized on how well-bonded the Middle School community is.
Parents who served communities shared with their daughters’ homeroom class ways on how to meaningfully make an impact on the lives of others. In a separate activity, students got the chance to interact with children from the Lingap Kapwa partner communities of ANCOP, Daang Tubo, and Balara.
Capping the activities was a unit Mass with Sr. Teresa Dagdag, M.M. and other Maryknoll Sisters.
Truly, these two-pronged activities gave the unit an extraordinary day of fun and learning.
Twenty-four Middle School students from the Young Artists Club shared their talent to the community by painting the unit’s entry for the Little Free Libraries (LFL). The students worked on the LFL from September 2 to 3, 2016.
Armed with their brushes, paints and a whole lot of creativity, the students painted “little houses”. These small structures are to house books that will be donated by the community. The activity was a good way for MS girls to showcase their talent and at the same time work for a cause.
From July 18 to September 1, Grade 8 students from the Middle School participated in the Basic Water Safety Seminar at the College Swimming Pool. The seminar was headed by Coach Lito Angeles, a certified swimming instructor and life guard.
The objective of the activity was to spread awareness on First Aid and to train the students to become responsible citizens in times of disaster.
Each section attended the seminar for one whole day. Students were taught how to enter or dive into the pool, breathe underwater, perform the flutter kick, float, and execute survival strokes in swimming. A highlight of the seminar was teaching students how to do cardiopulmonary resuscitation. They also had the chance to manipulate different equipment that can be used for survival.
