EDUCATE YOURSELF

To graduate is every student's dream in life.

EDUCATION IS VITAL to every human being. I do believe that without education a man is liken to a home without solid foundation.

However, education has to be personally earned. It cannot be bought and borrowed.

No one can be a learned man in an instant. We have to take knowledge one at a time.

Therefore, as a student we should appreciate all the lessons from our mentors while we are in school because their teachings serve as passport for our success in life. Continue reading

DRUGS AND STUDIES DON’T MIX

Drug syndicates commonly victimize teens due to the latter's curiosity and misinformation about drugs.

THE REPUTATION of our school depends primarily on the academic performance of the learners and on the competence of its teaching force in transmitting ideals, values, and knowledge to their students.

Considering also that teachers and students played a crucial role in nation -building it is imperative that a great deal of attention be given to them.

Like in a case when a student who got hooked into drugs started to escape his studies, joined a notorious group and involved himself into some criminal acts. Continue reading

BEING A PHOTOJOURNALIST

Photography is both truth-seeking and truth-telling, says CSF 2010 photojournalist Rose Lyn Ann Pontoy

TAKING PICTURES is not an easy job.

For a photographer, taking picture is also about telling the truth of one’s subject.

A picture can tell a crime, a scenario, or condition of people, places and objects.

For some, it is not only merely photo shots but also these shots can kill people. Like for example, when an influential person is being caught doing a crime on camera, they will surely hunt the photographer and let him destroy the picture or he will be dead the next day. Continue reading
