GOOD NEWS TO CSF STUDENTS, friends and alumni: CSF is now on the net.

Through the help of CICT and ICOT-P, CSF is now going full-blast on its internet connectivity.

School principal Dr. Ludina M. Oballo said that this kind of school-related development is the first time in Carigara and even in the 2nd district of Leyte.

“Through the help of CICT and ICOT-P, students will now have the full advantage of using the internet to become technologically adept and globally competitive, ” Oballo said.

Oballo added that the said plan is in connection to DepEd’s thrust to make all government schools internet ready.

“Information and Communication technology is the trend now, thus we are doing our best to make this happen in our school.”

THE JOY OF LIFE

I WAS DUMBSTRUCK the time my colleague asked me to write for the school paper. Dare to ask me why? It’s been years since I last wrote for the publication, and I felt that I’m already a bit rusty on it. For the most part I tried to deliberate on what to write. It seemed all my creative juices had been frozen and now it is to be thawed.

It would be quite simple to put it this way: what valuable lessons in life could I as a mentor impart to the readers?

Living and learning is the real school in life. Being aware of this will lead our old selves to a new persona. When we leave behind that part of us who is self-centered and begin to acknowledge our divine purpose then we are opening the floodgates of spiritual blessings to ourselves. Continue reading

CHANGE

Filipino tradition, like Mano Po (taking the hand of an elderly into one's forehead), is slowly losing appeal among today's Filipino youths.


CHANGE.

A word usually used by government leaders, moralists, and even writers. The word also means a call for action for our wrongdoing and misdeeds.

I believe this word particularly applies to my generation. Why? Simply because I believe change is necessary for us in order to become rightful heirs of this land. Before, our forefathers ruled this country with solid character and strong moral values.

They lived with their hearts and minds anchored on the virtues of industry, tenacity, courage, honesty, compassion, respect, and love. In the past, they cherished the “Code of Ethics” like no other.

Today, however, these virtues are slowly fading from the psyche of my fellow youths. Ethics and morality are something old-fashioned to most of us. Continue reading

PRESTIGE AND PROFIT SEEN IN ONLINE PUBLICATION

Award-winning print and online journalist Jose Torres Jr is also behind iSchools's projects in transforming campus publications into electronic form

DEVELOPING ONLINE NEWSPAPERS brings prestige– and profit.

This I understand from the lecture of Mr. Jose A. Torres, Jr., award-winning print and online journalist in the country today,

Albeit he didn’t elaborated on the money-making part of blogging or online writing, I am convinced that it is worthwhile and profitable activity.

A recent Yahoo-Nielsen index study on urban Pinoy youth cited frequent Internet access among those in the 10-19 year age group. In a study from Universal McCann and Alexa , Filipinos top anywhere in the world for being frequent social media users, adding that there are now more than 10 million Pinoy facebook accounts.

The reports tell us that our country is already on its track towards digital age and that our people–particularly the younger generation—are also adopting it. Continue reading
