            This study was conducted to determine the effectivity of avocado (Persiaamericana) as feed supplement in increasing the weight of broilers.

The avocado seeds were collected from different juice and shake vendors of Solano, Nueva Vizcaya. The drying of avocado seeds was done at Biology Laboratory of Aldersgate College. Feeding and observation of the broilers for forty two days (42) was done at Brgy. Quezon, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya.

There were three treatments in this study, each treatment consists of three broilers and they were fed according to treatments. The three treatments were as follows: treatment 1 (100% of avocado seed); treatment 2 (50% avocado seeds and 50% commercial feeds) and treatment 3 (100% commercial feeds).

Different rations were given three times a day for 42 days. Clean water was provided to broilers daily. The weight of the broilers was recorded weekly. In describing the experimental data, the mean was used in computing the difference between the initial and final weight of the broilers.

The researchers therefore conclude that the avocado seeds are effective in increasing the weight of broilers.

The null hypothesis stating that the treatment conducted which is not significantly different is rejected. This further implies that the three treatments conducted significantly differ from each other.

Community Extension and Outreach Program


Community Extension and Outreach Program

December 20, 2010 @ Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya

As the spirit of CHRISTMAS crosses the minds and hearts of everyone, of every family and home, the community is filled with happiness, and merry-making spells out the common perception of what CHRISTMAS is all about. But…..What does CHRISTMAS really mean to us?

The SCHOOL OF MEDICAL SCIENCES of ALDERSGATE COLLEGE sought to demonstrate that CHRISTMAS season is not simply merry-making among individuals of any age but a time and opportunity to give/share GOD’S LOVE ….as had been initiated by the birth of the Messiah-JESUS CHRIST who came to be our SAVIOR.

God’s love which fills our lives can be shared to anyone, especially to the less privileged, less-fortunate and needy brethren in the far-flung areas of our province. There are numerous ways to offer our LOVE to others from the simplest to the most lavish way of giving…. and what matters most is the sincerity and truthfulness of giving coupled with compassion and commitment.

Filled with God’s love and dedication to serve as inspired by GOD’s Commandment… “Love one another as God Loves You”…. the students of the School of Medical Sciences (Bachelor of Science in Nursing, Diploma in Midwifery and Health Care Services NC II) joyfully trekked their way up the winding roads of Brgy. Bonifacio to be with the community once again for the joint Thanksgiving and Christmas Program celebration.

Simple programs were simultaneously organized: one was held in Purok Centro- where most residents of the Barangay can easily access for gatherings of any kind; and another was in Sitio Tutong- regarded as the easiest and most accessible for those families far-north of the Barangay.

This time of fellowship and togetherness brought the residents much delight. As a manifestation of their appreciation and gratitude and considering the place where they lived, the residents readily expressed that they felt “loved and cared for” amidst their state in life.

LOVE was expressed by the students not only in words, but through the variety of gifts they have heartily given to the residents and so with the assurance of their commitment to help them achieve a healthy lifestyle despite their economic status. This can be done through the implementation of health services in answer to their health needs and health problems as far as the students’ capacity to be of help and capability to serve can reach.

The day’s activities ended with words of thanksgiving and contentment for such moments sponsored by committed students who are ready and dedicated to serve….and these are the SMS students of ALDERSGATE COLLEGE.

This study was conducted to determine the effect of used motor oil as an additive component in candle making.

The researchers collected used motor oil from motor shops and set them aside while preparing improvised candle molders. The improvised molders which were made from used carton boxes were shaped like cylinder tube-like with sizes like ordinary candles.

Ordinary candles and left over from used candles were used.  These were melted and then used oil was added before they were solidified.

Three treatments were used in the study to determine how effective or useful used oil is as additive. The flame, the smoke and life of candles were observed to determine which treatment is effective.

Results revealed that the commercial candle was still the best to use however used oil can still be an additive in candle making.

Household consumers on the other hand generally accepted the used oil as good additive in candle making but commented that perfume should have been added to improve the smell because the smell of used oil is not pleasant.




Aldersgate College in its continued venture as a Learning Center for Excellence located within the heart of Nueva Vizcaya now opens its doors to students for the School      Year 2010-2011 offering varied programs that would prepare and hone any graduate that goes out from its portals to be globally competitive and comparable to other graduates coming from prestigious colleges and universities in metropolitan areas.

            The School of Medical Sciences as a department offering Health Allied Programs continuously enhances its curricular programs that would equip the students with the Knowledge, Skills, and Attitudes as foundation for excellent performances, making those as their spring-board to be at par with other professionals in various fields of industry where they land into for a noble job.

 To achieve all of these with success the School of Medical Sciences not only prepares its students in the academic aspect of learning but at the same time provides opportunities for every student to apply their theoretical knowledge, skills and attitudes through actual practice among authentic clients in the community; hence, a Community Extension and Outreach Program was conceived and was made feasible in a remote barangay of Quezon, a neighboring town flanking the Municipality of Solano, Nueva Vizcaya.

SAR-Ex (Student Action Response for Excellence)  The SMS-Community Extension and Outreach Program is now on its second year of existence and for this School Year 2010-2011 since its conception in 2010.  This program is vis-à-vis in the implementation of the SAR-ex Project introduced by the Commission on Higher Education which commenced this School Year.

Student of the School of Medical Sciences checking heart rate to assess the health status of school children of Brgy. Bonifacio.


            On the first week of July 2010, several volunteer students of the School of Medical Sciences together with some Faculty Members went to Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya (the adopted community for the Community Extension and Outreach Program) and paid a visit to the place. The group made the necessary coordination with the Barangay Council Officials and presented the Department’s plan in sustaining the program which was previously launched and implemented in the preceding year.  The Barangay Council Officials and the constituents of the community being very thankful and appreciative for the continuity of the program gave the assurance of a committed and sincere active involvement of the Barangay as a whole.

On that same week, ocular visits to the different Puroks and Sitios were done by the students and faculty involved in this extension program with the intention to conduct the necessary assessment purposely to identify prevailing needs and problems of the community people. Furthermore, to evaluate the status of previously implemented programs.

Since the month of July is observed as NUTRITION MONTH in several agencies, both government and private sectors in accordance to the implementation of programs of the Department of Health, the SMS students and faculty coordinated with the Barangay Elementary Schools’ officials and the Barangay Council Officials on the realization of the different activities in observance of the NUTRITION PROGRAM for the month.

The following table shows the different activities that were implemented in observance of the NUTRITION PROGRAM CELEBRATION:

Schedule Activities
JULY 15, 2010 Coordination with all Elementary Schools’ Officials in the Barangay for scheduled activities
JULY 16, 2010 Operation Timbang for all Elementary School pupils (Grade I – VI) in Centro , Barangay Bonifacio
JULY 22, 2010 Operation Timbang for all Grade I-VI pupils in Sitio Tutong, Bgry. Bonifacio, Quezon
JULY 23, 2010 Operation Timbang for all Grade I-IV pupils in Sitio Tawi-tawi, Bgry. Bonifacio, Quezon
JULY 30, 2010 Culminating Program of the NUTRITION MONTH Celebration in Barangay Bonifacio, Quezon with the collaborative participation of Philippine Nurses’ Association – Nueva Vizcaya Chapter
AUGUST 05, 2010 Feeding program at Sitio Tutong, Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon and giving Supplemental Feeding Stuff for Malnourished children in the area
AUGUST 06, 2010 Feeding Program at Primary School in Sitio Tawi-tawi, Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon


Participants of the Poster Making Contest

            As scheduled on JULY 30, 2010, the Culminating Program of the NUTRITION MONTH CELEBRATION was held at the Barangay Hall of the community. The one-day program packed with various activities was participated in by the community people especially by the elementary school pupils who actively took part in the whole day program.

Some of the highlights of the Program were the Poster Making and Slogan Making Contests which were open to elementary pupils of the Barangay in all levels, and the Literary-Musical Presentations of the children from the Preparatory level to the Elementary level. The winners in the different contest categories were filled with joy as they garner the upshots of their efforts. The radiant smiles and laughter of the winners made the organizers more inspired and challenged to continue to carry out the committed tasks as a part of the responsibilities stipulated in the work plan of the department.  

  What had inspired the group most is the verse from the Bible as quoted … “For I can do all things with CHRIST who strengthens me”.

Background of the Study

 Texting has become an integral part of our lives; it has developed very rapidly throughout the world.

Initial growth of text messaging starts with customers in 1995 sending an average 0.4 messages per GSM (Global System for mobile communications) per customer per month. (Wikipedia, 2009)

Today, text messaging is the most widely used mobile data service, with 35% of all mobile phones users worldwide or 4.2 million to 7.3 million phone subscribers at the end of 2003 being active users of SMS.

The largest average usage of the service by mobile phone subscribers is the Philippines with an average of 15 texts per day by subscribers. (Wikipedia, 2009)

 Text messaging is most often used between private mobile users as a substitute for voice calls situations. Popularity has grown to a sufficient extent that the term texting has enticed the people. It is a very powerful tool in the Philippines where the average user sends 10-12 text messages a day. The Philippines ends on the average 400 million test messages per day or approximately 142 billion text messages sent a year.

At the end of 2007, four of the top mobile service providers in the country stated that there are 42.78 million mobile subscribers in the Philippines; thus Philippines has become the “texting capital of the world”.

The expanding availability of text messaging has raised questions about the effect of texting on standard literacy. Many have reported unintentional intrusions of abbreviations used in texting called “textisms”- is inappropriate contexts. (Wood. Et al., 2009)

This study aims to determine whether the texting habits of the first year high school students of Aldersgate Science High School should be a concern as it significantly demeaning their spelling proficiency.

1.6 length of ownership of the cell phone

1.7 amount spent in texting

1.8 frequency of texting

1.9 type of text message sent

1.10 person sent text messages to

Statement of Hypothesis

           Null Hypothesis

There is no skeptical effect of texting to the spelling proficiency of the first year high school students of Aldersgate College.

           Alternative Hypothesis

There is a negative effect of texting to the spelling proficiency of the first year high school students of Aldersgate College.

Scope and Delimitation of the Study

The study is confined to determine if there is a negative effect of texting to the spelling proficiency of First year High School students of Aldersgate College through a series of survey conducted, during the first semester, school year 2009-2010.

Significance of the Study

To get a better idea of the effects of texting on teenagers and how much this technology was actually being used, a survey was conducted in Aldersgate College Science High School Solano, Nueva Vizcaya. Seventy- two First Year high School students were asked questions about their usage of texting and instant messaging. To ensure the honesty of the answers, the surveys were anonymous and the students were told that their answers would not be used against them.


After floating questionnaires regarding the effect of texting to the spelling proficiency of first year student of Aldersgate College Science High School, the researchers came up with the following significant data:

People whom they sent messages to

1 2 3 4
M F   % M F   % M F   % M F   %
FAMILY AND OTHER RELATIVES 11 8 19 26.4 5 10 15 20.8 5 15 25 34.7 4 2 6 6.9
FRIENDS AND CLASSMATES 8 17 25 36.1 14 19 33 45.8 7 5 12 16.7 0 0 0 0
TEXTMATES 6 13 19 25 8 10 18 25 14 16 30 41.7 0 2 2 2.8
OTHERS 2 1 3 2.78 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 5.56 24 34 58 81.9
NO CELLPHONE 4 2 6 8.33 4 2 6 8.33 4 2 6 8.3 4 2 6 8.3
TOTAL 31 41 72 100 31 41 72 100 32 40 72 100 32 40 72 100

This table shows the percentage of to whom the students of Aldersgate College first year send their messages.



After floating questionnaires regarding the effect of texting to the spelling proficiency of first year student of Aldersgate College Science High School, the researchers came up with the following significant data that texting habits had diminished the spelling proficiency of the students. 



The researcher therefore conclude that texting habits affect the declining spelling proficiency of students, text languages often confuse the students with the correct spelling of the words leading to usually misspelled words.



            The researcher would like to recommend that a further study about the effect of texting in the spelling proficiency of students would be done in a longer period of time with a larger number of respondents who should be observed in an adequate period of time.

The Sinanama-AC Learning Center Claudia Esquivel Campus Baresbes, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya (An Extension Program of the College of Arts, Sciences and Education)


In November , 1998, as the classes resumed for the second semester, a team composed of the students in Anthropology and Sociology and their advisers conducted a baseline survey of Baresbes, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya. This baranggay which is approximately 8 km away from Aldersgate College is inhabited mostly by Ilocanos. Generally, the livelihood of the people is farming. The houses of the residents are situated near their farms, which are far from the center of the barangay where the school building would be put up.
Community extension started shortly after the baseline survey. The advisers with the students were able to identify potential leaders in the community. Community visitations were done regularly to follow up the progress of the immersion program. There were constant formal and informal dialogues with the community people and leaders.
The community immersion and the formal presentation of the thrusts and programs of the ACSAMS followed after the numerous dialogues with the people of the community.
Community officers who would work with the ACSAMS were elected and the name of the organization as SINANAMAC was formed from the names of the 2  puroks of Baresbes namely: Sinamar and Namnma (Sinanama) and Aldersgate College (AC) as implementers.
The construction of the learning center materialized in April and May, 1999. The building made of light materials like cogon and buho was put up in a lot donated by Mrs. Claudia Esquivel. It was put up through the “bayanihan” spirit of the people who personally uprooted the cogon grasses from the mountain ranges for the roof and “buho” for the  walls.
In preparation to the tasks, the adviser, Pastor Rebecca Divad,  conducted a kindergarten curriculum workshop with her Anthropology class, to teach alternately with the supervision of the coordinator. One of them was challenged as leader. The formal class sessions started on the second week of June and since has became a continuing venture of commitment and dedication for community service.
The CASE extension program with its primary aim of bringing the school to the community will address the following objectives:
1.    Establish early childhood development as a basic service for children ages 3-6 in the community.
2.    Improve the quality and efficiency of primary education.
3.    Eradicate illiteracy.
4.    Enhance the role of women in ensuring community and household food security.
If Education is not available to a group of people, the group has less chance of taking advantage of the benefits of that society. Success in educational activities is important, as children learn skills and capabilities for self confidence and self reliance in a democratic country.
Education is the foundation of all developments and the biggest hopes for the country. As Anderson claims that society requires 40% literacy rate to enable it to enter the “take off” stage, which means that literacy is a viable key in societal modernization.
The College of Arts, Sciences and Education believes that this outreach program in the the Sinanama-AC Learning Center Claudia Esquivel Campus at Baresbes Quezon shall be able to contribute in the upliftment of the literacy rate of the target community and be able to achieve the institutional goals of ACADEMIC EXELLENCE, SOCIAL RELEVANCE and SPIRITUAL NURTURE of Aldersgate College.
Although Baresbes is considered as one of the productive and progressive barangays of Quezon, most of the children aged 3-6 cannot avail of preschool education because the educational establishments are located  at the center of the community, and the  children are still physically incapable of walking the long distance to the daycare centers.  The Sinanama-AC Learning Center was put up in a location which is accessible to most of the barangay residents.
The Sinanama-AC Learning Center also provides opportunity for BEED and BSED students to enhance their acquired knowledge and put theory into practice as they merge themselves in the community particularly with the children.


1.    Birth certificate of pupils should be presented upon enrollment.
2.    Only children aged 3-6 are admitted in the learning center.
3.    Direct grandchildren of the land donor, Mrs. Claudia Esquivel, will be given  full free tuition fee.
4.    Ten (10)% discount is given to one of  two (2) children enrolled in the learning center
5.    A registration fee of Php.100.00 will be paid upon enrollment.
6.    Monthly tuition fees  of P75.00  shall be collected on the 15th or 30th of the month
7.    The electric bill of the learning center will be shouldered by the PTA.
1.    Pupils should be in school at 7:20 am for the flag raising ceremony.
2.    Wearing of uniforms is from Monday to Friday except Wednesday, which is designated  civilian day.
3.    IDs should be worn at all times inside the school campus.
4.    Parents are not allowed inside the classroom during class sessions
5.    Parents should attend regular meetings.
6.    Parents should cooperate in all activities like seminars and workshops.

This study was conducted to determine the antimicrobial properties of hag-ob leaf extract which can be a source of raw materials in the production of antibodies or antibacterial medicines. This study also aimed to provide preliminary assessment on the phytochemicals present in the leaves of hag-ob which can possibly be utilized as medicinal agent.

The phytochemical screening was confined to the detection of important phytochemical constituents that exhibit biological activity like alkaloids, saponins, antraquinones, flavonoids and tannins. The antimicrobial properties were evaluated using the Mcfarland Turbidity Standard and Microbiological Assay Method.  The antimicrobial screening was designed to detect the antimicrobial activity of the plant extract against representative test organisms of gram-positive, gram-negative bacteria and fungi.

Based on the preliminary assessment, hag-ob leaf extract contains alkaloids, antraquinones, coumarines, essential oils, flavonoids, higher alcohols, phenols, steroids and tannins.

The leaf extract contains bioactive components that can inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans. The inhibitory effect of the extract on the three test organisms was interpreted as very active; hence, the extract can be a source of raw materials in the production of antibodies and antibacterial medicines.

Centralized Baptismal Certification Record

by Shela Gay Lajer

We are now living in the world of modernization wherein every aspect of our lives is now technologically advanced. Our generation is now dubbed as the “Information Era” wherein every piece of information is essential in the sense that a single mistake would cause a lot of trouble.
As one of the developing and progressing country, Philippines now is trying to innovate in terms of technology for us not to be left by the trends in Information and Communications Technology (ICT). From manual procedures, we try to automate our transactions. One good instance is the Civil Registry System of the National Statistics Office which involves the computerization of the civil registry operations of NSO. NSO-CRS is a centralized information system designed to collect, store and manage civil registry documents (CRDs) and the specimen signature of all city and municipal registrars including all CRS authorized signatories, using the imaging technology.
As we can perceive, every establishments are also leveling up their awareness in technologies. The supermarkets, malls, grocery stores, offices, gasoline stations, restaurants, hotels, lodges, banks, offices and even the smallest business enterprise uses computerized programs to fasten their transactions specially in transactions which involves documents, files, records and money.
The inspiration behind the conceptualization of this study is the perceived transaction in the Serbilis Center at the National Statistics Office in the province. The idea is that if they can have that kind of transaction why not apply to the churches for them to experience this new trend of  technology considering that churches are not exempted from progress. One more inspiration is that the curiosity that bugs the mind of the researcher on how the NSO employee can download the certificate without using the internet.

It is for this reasons that the researcher have sought of conducting a study for the benefits of the church and its members entitled “CENTRALIZED BAPTISMAL CERTIFICATION RECORD MANAGEMENT AND INFORMATION SYSTEM FOR CATHOLIC CHURCHES IN THE DIOCESE OF BAYOMBONG”. Although churches have separate legislation from the government, they still are entitled to sustain progress not only spiritually but technologically as well. The researcher has chosen to propose the study to the Catholic parishioners of the Diocese of Bayombong, because according to researches that the researcher has made, aside from the fact that the researcher is located in the research locale, the diocese consists of numbers of churches which has numerous devotees.
