She said, this program was established by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) for fourth year students but since entrance examinations for college have been facilitated in the month of September, October and November, she initiated to conduct it for the third year students in preparation for the courses they would take in stepping to college and what courses need entrance examination.

She also added that this orientation program was established through the cooperation of the DepEd, TESDA, PRC, DOLE, CHED, DOST and the Association of Guardian Facilitator of Nueva Vizcaya.

After the video presentation, Ms. Eva Doniego of the TESDA lectured the ladderized education – which some colleges in the province are already implementing like Aldersgate College. Technical and Vocational courses which could be an alternative to those who will not qualify to degree courses or are not financially capable.

She also explained the significance of the k to 12 policy, stressing that a student who graduated in a five-year high school can already work applying what he has learned. He will receive a certificate coming from the TESDA that will license him to find a job.

The parents were given chances to ask questions, verify what they have heard and ask for agencies that could offer scholarships for their children which were positively answered by Doniego of the TESDA.

Stallions hinder Hounds roar anew

Firing up the AC ground with their gritty display of Stunts, Steps and Smiles, the Stallions secured the glamour of the judges via unanimous decision and hooked the cheerdance dance crown during the AC Intrams.

After five years of nailing the cheer dance title to the name of the sophomores, the Wild Stallions finally broke the ice cold monotony to bring home this year’s cheer dance crown, during the opening program of the Aldersgate College Intramurals held last October 11 at the AC Quadrangle.

The simple costumes and props of the fourth year performers were overshadowed by their intricate but synchronized choreography, overflowing charm and energy that made the AC ground burning as they carried out their presentation.

The Hounds in glaring green costume and neo-inspired hair makeover, after having showed off their routines with high energy and sturdy stunts, placed second. The Hawks, notching 3rd place, proved that they are not left out in the said battle, with a bright pomelo get-up, displaying a character that blew away the Zebras who landed 4th.

Highlighting the three-day event with a display of gymnastic skills, creativity and talents of the students, the cheer dance competition is one of the most awaited activities of the Intramurals in which a variety of choreography, routines, stunts and costumes are shown.

“The innate dancing skills of the fourth year students, who happened to be members of the Bungkos Sining, made them bring home the bacon.” said Fernando B. Pili Jr., trainer of the Wild Stallions cheering squad.

“Like gems, the stallions have been shaped up and kept brilliant by their dance trainings in the early years.” he added. #AndellJan24/Mjjt
