Aldersgate College High School Department Community Extension Program 2021

The High School Department conducted a Christmas Program and Gift-Giving Activity at Brgy. Dadap and Brgy. Aggub last December 9-10, 2021, respectively.

Through the generosity of the High School teachers, students, and their families, we were able to bring smiles to the faces of our beneficiaries. The highlights of the program are the gift-giving activity and games played with corresponding prizes. The beneficiaries expressed their thanks to all the sponsors and donors through a song.

With the selfless cooperation and participation of all faculty and staff of the High School Department, the program was a big success. This is through the leadership of Dr. Marissa J. Taguinod, High School Principal; Mrs. Leticia D. Serrano, Community Extension Director; and Mrs. Prosperita Marites A. Matterig, Community Extension Coordinator of the High School Department.

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.

SCHOOL OF MEDICAL SCIENCES

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.

            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

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”.

Christmas comes early to 400 children of Solano

Dr. Leopoldo A. Valdez, Dean, Graduate School of Management, hands in the gifts to the children as Hon. Doretea S. Guillermo, Barangay Captain of Curifang, looks on.

As part of its outreach program, the Aldersgate College Graduate School (ACGS), through its Aldersgate College Graduate School Extension (AC-GraSE) Project, brought to more than 400 indigent children of Solano, ages 3-8 years old, an early Christmas present by conducting fun-filled children’s games, feeding and gift-giving activities on December 11, 2010, in the community centers of barangays Bagahabag and Curifang.

Dr. Nimfa Norie A. Aquino, District Supervisor of the Department of Education in the municipality of Quezon, in her keynote speech during the opening program in both barangays, challenged the community leaders, the parents, the students, the faculty and the staff of the Graduate School of Aldersgate College to strengthen further their partnership in attending to the needs of the children especially during the most crucial stage of their development so as to fully prepare them to their task as the pillars of our nation.

Hon. Dolores Binwag, President of the Councilor’s League of the Province of Nueva Vizcaya, graced also the outreach program in Bagahabag and delivered a short talk lauding the generosity and love of both the faculty and students of Aldersgate College in organizing the said activities for the children as they truly are the embodiment of the spirit of this joyous occasion. Hon. Binwag, an alumna of Aldersgate College herself, also encouraged the officials of the barangay to continue their unselfish support to the programs and activities of Aldersgate College in their community. She likewise intimated her office’s readiness to extend assistance to both the community and the school’s programs.

Mr. Daton Jonathan B. Palitayan, Jr., Director of AC’s Center for International Education and Project Coordinator of AC-GraSE Project, coordinated the said activities to the officials of the beneficiary barangays.

The daylong activities were facilitated by the members and officers of the Aldersgate College Graduate School Student Organization (ACGSSO) led by Mrs. Virginia B. Aroco, ACGSSO President and a second year Master of Arts in Educational Management student. The students themselves dug deep into their pockets to be able to provide the prizes for the games, the school supplies for the gift-giving and the food for the feeding program.

Jollibee, one of the municipality’s fast-food chains, donated snacks for the facilitators.#

Hon. Jose B. Corpuz, Sr., Barangay Captain of Bagahabag, welcomed and expressed his deepest gratitude to the ACGS faculty and staff for their early Christmas gift to the children in their community.

Plant a Tree: A Means of Caring for Our Body

David, in his psalm, exclaimed that God cares for man so much that He made him ruler over His creation.  Hence, just as man was created master of his body, his actions and life so was man created master of his environment.  It is of no wonder that the great German Philosopher Karl Marx could say with authority, “Nature is man’s body.”

The ACGS students and faculty pose at the foot of Bangan Hill as they prepare to ascend to the tree planting site.

With this same view in mind, the Aldersgate College Graduate School students and faculty through the Aldersgate College Graduate School Extension (AC-GraSE) Project carried out a tree-planting activity at Bangan Hill, lower Magsaysay, Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya on November 6, 2010.

Bangan Hill has been declared a national park, called as the Bangan Hill National Park, on March 29, 1995 through REPUBLIC ACT NO. 7954.   The park is fifty meters wide on both sides along the Bangan Hill Road in the municipality of Bayombong, Nueva Vizcaya, and has an aggregate area of 130,106.43 square meters.

Mr. Daton Jonathan B, Palitayan Jr., AC-GraSE Project Coordinator and Associate Professor of the ACGS, led 36 GS students in planting 150 Mahogany seedlings in the aforementioned site.

Engr. Leonardo Cabauatan, a first year MPA student, coordinated the activity with the Department of Environment and Natural Resources office which provided the seedlings that were planted.

Antonio Aggid, a father of three and one of the caretakers of Bangan Hill National Park, accompanied the ACGS faculty and students to the tree planting site.

Farewell Villa Adriano, Hello Bonifacio!

Aldersgate College: Establishing a Secure and Stable Community

Through the Pangkalusugan- Pangkabuhayan Outreach Program Bidding Villa Adriano Adieu After five momentous years of helping attain community needs, and address livelihood and health care concerns of the people of Villa Adriano (Busilac, Nueva Vizcaya), Aldersgate College is now sending off this partner-barangay which has slowly evolved into a self -sustained, independent and self -reliant community through the VAPPOP -Villa Adriano Pangkalusugan Pangkabuhayan Outreach Program. This program as the brainchild of Aldersgate College served as an awakening for a remarkable improvement in social relations, community involvement and services as well as the struggle of the people of the barangay for educational reformation. In turn, the trust of Villa Adriano people to AC has put up a strong bond between the college and its adopted community that enabled the school to set, implement, and achieve goals which truly have brought forth sustainable development and enthusiasm of the people to have meaningful lives.

Welcome Barangay Bonifacio!

Aldersgate College which continually sets its aspirations and high hopes of reaching out to other communities that pose enormous needs for community development, has conducted a probe of the next community to be adopted and developed. The School of Medical Sciences known for its advocacies in health and society building will extend its mission program this year to its new partner community. The following are the pre-set categories used as bases in choosing a partner community.

1. The community should have at least a minimum of 50 family heads as residents.

2. The community is considered underdeveloped as to technology and underserved as to various services and programs of the government.

3. The community possesses natural and social resources which can be utilized to enhance a healthy and progressive life.

4. The community offers opportunities for students’ effective learning experiences in their development and preparation to become competent health professionals.

5. The community residents should be able to extend their cooperation for active involvement in the achievement of implemented programs for the welfare of everybody.

6. Community leaders should be able to demonstrate effective leadership roles for sustainability of programs implemented for the interest of the public.

An ocular survey of one of the candidate communities was done at Barangay Bonifacio, Quezon Nueva Vizcaya after the courtesy call on February 4, 2009, at the municipal hall of Quezon. It was participated by the new set of student officers and volunteers who were organized to lead the school’s extension program. Consequentially, the following characteristics of Brgy. Bonifacio, Quezon, Nueva Vizcaya, were unveiled to make them qualify as the next beneficiary of the school’s extension program:

1. Population: Brgy. Bonifacio Quezon has 150 households with a total population of 612 (Source: Barangay Nutrition Scholar Form. 1A of 2006.)

2. Electricity: Only one sitio out of 8 has electricity provided by NUVELCO thus majority of the households depend on gas and kerosene lamps for their lighting needs.

3. Transportation: The road going to the 7 other sitios, which do not have electricity, is poorly developed. The place can only be reached by hiking, carabao-back riding or riding a sled pulled by a carabao. During rainy seasons, the roads are muddy making it inaccessible to the public.

4. Agriculture: Corn, one of the major crops in Bonifacio, is planted twice a year. It has yield ranging from 35 to 55 cavans per hectare. Another crop is rice, planted twice a year yielding an average of 70 to 76 cavans per hectare.

5. Land Area: Brgy. Bonifacio has an approximate total land area of 1,950 hectares. 72% or 1,400 hectares are used mainly for agricultural purposes, while 28% or 550 hectares are open spaces which account for unfilled land. Land proportion is complimentary for profit depending on the communication with the land owners of the place.

6. Community Thrusts:

6.1. The barangay people aiming at boosting up their health and economic status proffered their neighborhood for partnership to Aldersgate College through the School of Medical Sciences as the school’s frontliner in quality nursing practice highlighting the following important points: *the goal which is promotion and preservation of health of the population; and *the enhancement of students’ acquired knowledge, skills and positive attitudes in providing health care services to become competent health care professionals in the future

6.2. Willingness and acceptance of every opportunity for learning and programs geared to improve their lifestyle were demonstrated by the community residents.

6.3. The residents of the area through the Barangay officials led by Brgy. Captain Pepito Ballagan made their way beyond cynicism in expressing their readiness in continuing and maintaining the program’s activities and plans. The School of Medical Sciences, the student volunteers, together with the help and assistance of the instructors in-charge and advisers are still in the process of formulating specific programs for the adopted community. Family health survey forms were already prepared and are now available. As soon as the team has completed gathering, compiling and interpreting data from the ongoing family health assessment survey in the community, formal programs will be made that will address the needs of the next partner community.#

SCHOOL OF MEDICAL SCIENCES

Aldersgate College in its continued venture as a Learning Center for Excellence 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 graduates who are globally competitive and comparable to other graduates coming from prestigious colleges and universities in the country.

To achieve all of these with success the School of Medical Sciences not only prepares its students in the academic aspect of learning but also provides opportunities for every student to apply their theoretical knowledge, skills and attitudes thru practice in the community; hence, a Community Extension and Outreach Program was conceived and established  in a remote Barangay (Brgy. Bonifacio), in  Quezon, 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, this is also a program parallel to the implementation of the SAR-ex Project introduced by the Commission on Higher Education beginning this School Year.

Bonifacio, Quezon, Solano, Nueva Vizcaya (the adopted community for the Community Extension and Outreach Program), made the necessary coordination with the Barangay Council Officials and presented the Department’s plan to continue the previously implemented programs the previous year. The Barangay Council Officials and the community were very thankful and appreciative for the continuity of the programs and gave the assurance for a committed and sincere active involvement of the whole Barangay.
On that same week, ocular visits to the different Puroks and Sitios were done; with the necessary assessment purposely to identify prevailing needs and problems of the community and also to evaluate the status of previously implemented programs.
Since the month of July as to Department of Health implemented Programs, is being observed in several agencies (government and private) as NUTRITION MONTH, the SMS coordinated with the Barangay Elementary Schools’ Officials and so with the Baranggy Council Officials on the different activities that will be done in observance of the NUTRITION PROGRAM for the month.

Some of the highlights of the Program were the Poster Making and Slogan Making Contest which was participated by all levels of the Elementary School Pupils of the Barangay and the Literary-Musical Presentations of the children from the Preparatory level to the Elementary level. The winners in the different categories were filled with joy and the radiant smiles and laughter from them made the organizers more inspired and challenged to continue and move on with the committed task given to them.

What inspires the group most is the verse from the Bible which states… “For I can do all things with CHRIST who strengtheneth me”, Philippians 4:13
