By RUEL V. PELONE Managing Editor

THE celebration of the annual Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival will formally open today (August 17, 2015) with the holding of an Ecumeni-

cal Mass from 4:30 to 5:30 in the afternoon at the Rizal Park, Davao City. The Kadayawan Street Party will also open at the San Pedro Square from 8 to 12 midnight after the 30th Kadayawan sa Dabaw

AboutKadayawan THE Kadayawan Festival is an annual festival in the city of Davao in the Philippines. Its name derives from the friendly greeting “Madayaw,” from the Dabawenyo word “dayaw”, meaning good, valuable, superior or beautiful. The festival is a celebration of life, a thanksgiving for the gifts of nature, the wealth of culture, the bounties of harvest and serenity of living. It is held every third week of August. History It was said that, long time ago, Davao’s ethnic tribes residing at the foot of Mount Apo would converge during a bountiful harvest. This ritual serves as their thanksgiving to the gods particularly to the “Manama” (the Supreme Being). Various farming implements, fruits, flowers, vegetables, rice and corn grains were displayed on mats as villagers give their respect and thanks for the year’s abundance. Singing, dancing and offerings to their divine protectors are the highlights of this ritual. Although times have changed, this practice of thanksgiving or “pahinungod” is still very much practiced by modern day Davaoeños. This tradition flourished and evolved into an annual festival of thanksgiving. In the 1970s, Mayor Elias B. Lopez, a Bagobo, initiated tribal festivals featuring the Lumad and the Muslim tribes of Davao City where they See about, page A8

The colorful artistic heritage of Davao can be found in the rich culture of its indigenous communities – the Bagobos, the Mandayas, the Mansakas, the Atas, the Kalagans, the Tagakaolos, and the Mangguangans. At the same time, no other city effortlessly

X Marks the Spot – Honda Zoomer-X Scooters are meant to be convenient, versatile and fun. The Honda Zoomer-X ticks all three boxes. Hence, it became an instant hit immediately after its initial launch. Powered by a modest 108 cc aircooled, single cylinder four stroke engine, it packs a reasonable amount of punch ( 6.14 kw@8000 rpm and 8.58 Nm@6500 rpm) as far as city commuting is concerned. Its continuously variable transmission (CVT) offers virtually effortless riding so you can pay more attention on the road ahead. Like its predecessor, the Honda Ruckus/ Zoomer, the Zoomer-X features an underseat rack instead of an enclosed compartment. This allows cargo space to be more flexible, enabling you to carry unconventional items ( like a skateboard or an umbrella) under the seat. Also, it fits a full face helmet, which is more

than i can say about most under seat compartments of most scooters these days. One has to be mindful, though, when storing valuable items and electronic gadgets because you be leaving them exposed to theft and the natural elements. After-market accessories are available to solve this

issue. The Zoomer-X offers superb handling as the center of gravity is lowered by placing the 4.4 liter fuel tank under the floorboard. The wide handle bar and raised grips also gives the rider good steering leverage. The meaty 100/90 (front) and 110/90 (rear) 12-inch

tires inspire confidence when riding on various road conditions. An inverted front fork and a rear mono shock keeps the Zoomer-X firmly planted on the road. The front disc/rear drum brake combination provide more than enough bite to put the 103 kilogram scooter to a

halt. Honda’s PGM-FI system ensures the engine fires up everytime and it also keeps operation at maximum efficiency. It is also more compatible to the ethanol-laced gasoline variants in the market today. As with most Honda scooters, the

Zoomer-X is equipped with a parking brake lever and side-stand kill switch for added safety. If you come to think of it, the P89,900 price tag is easy to justify with all the features previously mentioned. To know more about the Honda Zoomer-X, visit www. hondaph.com.

BEYOND YOLANDA – Yamaha Help Rebuild Lives in Ormoc Yamaha Motor Philippines, Inc. (YMPH) has always dedicated themselves to the enriching of lives to both their customers and the Filipino Community. When Super Typhoon

Yolanda struck the Philippines it left a trail of devastation in the lives of many; lives that needed to be rebuilt. In the wake of the tragedy sprung hope which came in the form of Yamaha’s

Champions rebuild lives campaign which was headed by MotoGP superstar and Yamaha Rider, Valentino Rossi. He visited the country to promote limited edition Yamaha Racing apparel

and the profits would be used to create the funds for the benefit of Yolanda Survivors. After generating more than 2 Million pesos in sales and other corporate efforts, Yamaha created

“Yamaha Beyond Yolanda” a rehabilitation program for Barangay Montebello and Naghalin in Ormoc City, Leyte. Yamaha rebuilt Barangay Montebello’s perimeter fence, stage area, water tank, and Basketball Court. The inauguration of the newly built Barangay was attended by YMPH executives including company President Toru Osugi, Hon. City Mayor Elmer Codilla and celebrity Mark Herras. YMPH also donated an SZ16 unit to the barangay officials

for livelihood use. Aside from structural reconstruction and product donations, Yamaha also gave 400 pieces of school bags with supplies to the children of Barangay Montebello. Then it was off to Barangay Naghalin, for the opening of their daycare center. A ribbon cutting ceremony took place and a distribution of 100 school bags and supplies for the students of the area. The activity is a major part of Yamaha’s ongoing CSR projects.

24/7 one-stop convenience pit stop at new Caltex CDO station Cagayan de Oro City (CDO), noted as Mindanao’s fast growing auto-hub, is also home to a newly opened Caltex service station to serve the city’s multiplying fleet of internationally branded vehicles. The new Caltex station located along Masterson Drive, Upper Carmen provides motorists with safe and quality fuel. Only Caltex with Techron gives motorists the five benefits of maximized power, improved fuel economy, lower emission,

smoother drive and reliable performance. In addition, this is the only gas station along the Masterson stretch that offers motorists a 24/7 one-stop convenience pit stop. Travelers can avail of snacks and travel needs from the station’s convenience stores and automotive service centers such as the Chams Convenience Store, the Bikes and Barrels Bar and Café, and the world-class Bosch Express Car Service.

EDITOR: ALLAN MEDIANTE • amediante@gmail.com

Fantasy or reality? Let’s face it, there are more and more growing doubts about China’s economic growth. Weaker growth, and volatile stock market and faltering exports have highlighted the weakness afflicting the Chinese economy. Experts, however, fear China’s woes are much more serious than what the official data suggest. For China, for Asia well, for the global economy. China released a string of weaker-than-expected economic data, adding to growing concerns about the state of the (still!) world’s second-largest economy. Industrial production and retail sales rose at a slower pace in July than what analysts had projected. Fixed asset investment, a measure of government spending on infrastructure, increased by 11.2 percent in the first half of the year - also below estimates and at its lowest since December 2000.

The numbers come a day after the central bank, the People’s Bank of China (PBoC), surprised investors by announcing a devaluation of the nation’s currency - the yuan, also known as renminbi (RMB). The PBOC promised its decision would be a one-off move, and said that it was taken in an effort to give markets a greater role in setting the exchange rate of China’s tightly controlled

currency. Should we expect currency wars? Fantasy or reality? Nevertheless, following the central bank’s adjustment of the yuan’s reference rate - which determines the mid-point of the currency’s trading range against the US dollar - the yuan fell by 1.9 percent, and by a further 1.6 percent on last Wednesday. The Chinese currency seems indeed “overplayed”! The yuan’s devaluation has sparked fears of renewed tensions on the exchange rate front between China and other major economies such as the US and Europe, particularly as a weaker yuan gives a lift to China’s exports at a time when policymakers in the country are grappling with slower growth. Economy concerns will remain. Pr ivate s e c tor debt amounts to 196 percent of China’s GDP, 40 percent

above its long-term trend. Moreover, investment, at 44 percent as a share of GDP, was higher than in any other country in history, analysts at Credit Suisse’s global research team wrote in a report published in July. I remember the time, when investors rushed to China like whole flocks of birds descended on the seedcrop. Once upon a time ... . Meanwhile, experts also argue that China is undergoing a “clear cut housing bubble,” pointing to the size of real estate in the country as a share of its GDP. The figure, around 23 percent, is triple that of the US at its peak and similar to peak levels in Spain and Ireland, they said. The analysts added that the Chinese housing market is also oversupplied and overvalued. Ne ve r t hel e ss , we a k growth and volatile stock market coupled with See doring, page A8

Did you have to compete with someone else to get the girl or guy you wanted? Whether we like it or not, competition is part of life. Usually there are other people besides you who want that job, scholarship, business, or title. But some people will stop at nothing to win. Whether it’s lying, cheating, or gossiping and destroying someone’s reputation. Yet when we compete only to win and beat the other person, it not only makes us bad losers, but

in the celebration, but to earn a living by way of robbery or any form if criminal activities. These criminal elements can be found in crowded places such as those in parks, in restaurants, in churches, in gambling areas and nearly

everywhere even inside your house. If you ask the police authorities, they will tell you these days are the time when criminals are in town. Cooperate with the police if you notice something wrong is taking place in your neighborhood or anywhere in the city. These bad elements of society must be locked behind bars to give peace a chance for our visitors and friends. Let us give the city utmost peace for people to enjoy celebrating the fiesta, I urge the police to be watchful and make arrest right away. By keeping them in jail, our people will be safer and more peaceful in their movement specially in their homes.

And by the way, let us keep the flow of traffic smoothly too to prevent serious accidents involving someone, especially those from the barangays who are slow in traffic signs, I always say that fiesta celebration is a religious affair and therefore, we should go to church first before we indulge in the real celebration like partaking food and drink in the home. I don’t mind about your religion for as long as we go to church and thank God for his blessing in making our city peaceful all the time. We need the Lord’s blessings. Let us all enjoy with utmost peace, love and affection for everyone.

As one guy put it: “Trespassing is okay, if the boundaries you cross are your own!” So when we set good, important goals for ourselves, they work in two ways: we work on them,

Foundation urged to help MSMEs to become competitive as AEC looms DAVAO City -- The Department of Trade and Industry on Friday challenged organizers of the annual Mindanao Trade Expo (MTE) to help the products of micro, small and medium enterprises compete with exports coming from neighboring countries. DTI-11 director Maria Belenda Q. Ambi the organizers can do this by expanding their network of designers, inventors, and technology providers. Ambi said this will provide MSMEs more options for product development in preparation for the Asean Economic C ommunity (AEC), which will take effect in December this year. “With the full implementation of the AEC, it is definitely necessary to take more aggressive and innovative measures in building the capacities of our MSMEs, thus, keep up with the challenges and capture opportunities in Asean and the rest of the world,” she said in her message at the opening of the MTE 2015 at the Abreeza Mall here. The official noted that

the holding of the MTE has benefited the MSMEs, as it has provided them an opportunity to link up with the local market for two decades already. “It has become one of the ‘must participate’ market encounter by micro, small and medium enterprises in this part of the country wanting to introduce and exhibit their products and find markets or expand their markets,” she added. Benjamin L. Kalalo, trustee for houseware sector of Philippine Exporters Confederation Inc. pointed out that Asean, which has about 600 million consumers, offers wide market opportunities for local exporters.

ITCZ affecting Mindanao, Visayas DAVAO City––Cloudy skies with light to moderate rains and isolated thunderstorms will be experienced over the regions of Northern Mindanao, Caraga and Davao and Eastern and Central Visayas due to the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) across Visayas and Mindanao, the weather bureau said in its 24-hour public weather forecast issued at 5 a.m. Sunday. Partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated thunderstorms will prevail over the rest of Mindanao, the advisory of the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa) said. Winds will be light to mod-

If you’ve allowed yourself to compete against others and you’ve done dishonest things or hurt people. Why not ask Jesus to forgive you today and start changing your heart and way of living?

Tunog Mindanaw, a music-writing competition, is scheduled on August 18 from 6 p.m. to 12 midnight at the San Pedro Square. The Davao City’s People’s Park will be playing host to Lumadnong Dula: Davao Tribal Sports, one of the highlights of the upcoming Kadayawan Festival, on August 20, 2015, according to the philippinetraveler.com. It said that Lumadnong Dula is a showcase of tribal sports attended by representatives of five of Davao’s 11 indigenous tribes: Ata, Klata, Matigsalog, Tagabawa and Ovu Manuvou. The event will see a total of 250 tribal athletes who will compete in various events. The event has been allocated a budget of P580,507 by the Sports Development Division of the City Mayor’s Office. Tribal games coordinator Tommy Iñigo said Lumadnong Dula is “a must-watch event of the Kadayawan Festival as indigenous people, our lumad brothers and sisters, will get to showcase their life and culture in the games.” Other events during the 30th Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival are Davao River

erate coming from the south to southwest and the coastal waters will be slight to moderate, it added. Meanwhile, moderate El Niño conditions continue to persist across the equatorial Pacific Ocean. Leading climate models suggest that it may intensify from moderate to strong El Niño in the coming months in the last quarter of 2015 and may last until early 2016, the El Nino Advisory No 6 issued on August 5, said. The advisory said analysis of rainfall distribution for the month of July showed that near to above normal rainfall were observed over Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR), Ilocos

showcase their dances and rituals of thanksgiving. Later in 1986, a program called “Unlad Proyekto Davao” was initiated by the government which was aimed to unite the Dabawenyos after the turbulent Martial Law era. At that time, the festival was called “Apo Duwaling,” a name created from the famous icons of Davao: Mt. Apo, the country’s highest peak; Durian, the king of fruits; and Waling-waling, the queen of orchids. “Apo Duwaling” was meant to showcase the city as a peaceful destination to visit and to do business after 1986 EDSA Revolution. Finally in 1988, City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte renamed the festival as “Kadayawan sa Dabaw” to celebrate the bountiful harvest of Davao’s flowers, fruits and other produce as well as the wealth of the city’s cultures. To this day, the festival continues to honor the city’s richness and diverse artistic, cultural and historical heritage in a grand celebration of thanksgiving for all of Davao City’s blessings. Festival of festivals Today, Kadayawan has transformed into a festival of festivals, with a number of spin-off festivals in the

Region, Central and Southern Luzon including Metro Manila, Romblon, Albay, Palawan, Negros Island Region, southern section of Cebu, and two Mindanao regions — Western and Central Mindanao. The rest of the country experienced below to way below normal rainfall conditions especially the eastern section of the Philippines, which is a clear manifestation of the impacts of El Niño in the country, it said. The advisory also noted that two Mindanao provinces are affected by drought – Camiguin and Misamis Oriental, along with Bohol, Quezon and Siquijor. The advisory defined drought

as “three consecutive months of way below normal (>60% reduction from average) or five consecutive months of below normal (21%-60% reduction from average) rainfall condition. It said weather systems that are likely to affect the country in August are the SW monsoon, the ITCZ, LPAs (low pressure area), monsoon trough and the occurrence of two to four tropical cyclones in the Philippine Area of Responsibility. The advisory said rainfall distribution is expected to be near normal in most parts of the country, while below normal rainfall is predicted over the provinces of Palawan, Camarines Norte,

mena, and former Cebu Governor Lito Osmena to name a few. Last Thursday, a caravan was held in Negros Occidental to convince Mayor Duterte to run for president in 2016. The caravan is part of a national effort of Duterte believers that will converge in Davao on August 28, to meet with the Davao City mayor himself and convince him to run, Jesus V. Hinlo Jr., a convenor of the Duterte for President Movement in the province, had said. Hinlo said they want Duterte to run for president because of his support for federalism, his strong campaign against criminality and his vision for the country’s progress through industrialization. The Negros Duterte caravan was led by Salvador Benedicto Mayor Joemax Ortiz, Bacolod City Administrator Rolando Villamor, private sector leaders Butch Ebreo, Bibit Puey, Toots Jimenez and Hinlo. At least seven vehicles and countless motorcycles joined the Negros caravan that drove through Salvador Benedicto, San Carlos City and the northern part of Negros Occidental to distribute ballers and leaflets about Duterte. In Mindanao, former South Cotabato Governor Mike Sueno said Duterte supporters decided to hold the rally as a “show of force” so that the mayor can finally see how much the people of the south support his presidential run. The Cagayan de Oro rally will be held at the Gaston Park on August 22 at 8:30 in the morning, exactly six (6) days before the city’s annual fiesta. Sueno hopes that this show of force will finally convince Mayor Duterte to vie for the top post in next year’s election, Daghan kaayo nang mu-apil ani kay Mindanao-wide gud ni”. Meanwhile PDP-Laban chairman for Northern Mindanao Elmer Quillo said that Dutertistas from Cotabato, from page A1 Davao, as well as other parts former President Fidel of the island will gather Ramos, Senator Serge Os- in the City of Valencia in region. The festival honors Davao’s artistic, cultural and historical heritage, its past personified by the ancestral Lumad people, its people as they celebrate on the streets, and its floral industry as its representatives parade in full regalia in thanksgiving for the blessings granted on the city. A celebration that interfaces the three aspects: tribal; industrial and; arts and entertainment. The festivities are highlighted with floral floats, streetdancing competitions and exhibits that showcases the island’s tourism products and services. Today, the recognized original tribes of Davao are here for political reasons. They are recognized because of their present day influence since they have organized themselves well. They are given deputy mayors to be their representatives to the political powers of Davao City. The present tribes of Davao is not based on historical accounts of the original inhabitants at all. They have removed the Mansakas and Mandayas from the list and replaced them with the Muslim tribes like Maranao, Tausug, and Maguindanao. Their reason is Mansaka is from Davao del norte and Mandaya is from Davao Oriental. What they didn’t notice is the places they said have “Davao” in their names while the Maguindanaos, Tausugs and Maranaos are obviously not from a place called Davao. What is more ironic is that Mandaya and Mansaka have the word “madayaw” in their dialects from which the “Kadayawan Festival” is derived. If the tribes are recognized because of their present numbers in a city then the Muslim tribes (especially the Maranaos) must have been also recognized as original tribes by other cities and municipalities since they are found in numbers in every city and municipality in the Philippines. source: en.wikipedia.org

Almendras Gym to the SMX Convention Center in Lanang. He said more participants to the Mutya ng Dabaw competition has given highlight to the young and beautiful residents of the city. Alejandre bared the mechanics of the Mutya ng Dabaw search like an agelimit from 18 to 26 years-old, one-year residency, and 15 finalists to compete in all events up to the selection of five finalists. “We expect more politicians coming to the city given the election fever,” he said. Alejandre urged for support especially that the executive committee of the Araw ng Dabaw and Kadayawan to promote these activities nationwide. Meanwhile, security deployment has been heightened in the city several days before, during and after the celebration of the Kadayawan Festival. Speaking in the I-Speak Forum, Colonel Macairog Alberto, commander of the Task Force Davao City, nothing significant has changed on the terror threat despite the elimination of known terrorists, like alias Marwan and Basit Usman, early this year. He said the security sector cannot afford to lower its guard against terrorism by which the threat is remains high with Davao City as the prized target. “The threat always comes from outside Davao City with the previous incidents here attributed to Central Mindanao. We are still not discounting the capability of some groups to sow terror,” he said. Macairog said even with the absence of a report to hit Davao City, the alert level of the Task Force Davao remains high. Chief Inspector Milgrace Driz, spokesperson of the Davao City Police Office said that their unit has been entrusted the lead role to

implement the security preparations for the Kadayawan Festival. She urged visitors to follow the ordinances on the smoking ban in public places and the liquor ban. Driz said they are still awaiting the order from Mayor Rodrigo Duterte who imposed a moratorium on the implementation of the speed limit ordinance in Davao City, pending the investigation of the alleged kotong cops and the issuance of identification cards for those enforcing the speed limit law. However, she stressed that the police will implement stop and frisk approach to suspicious characters, aside from the deployment of more policemen on the streets, and random checkpoints on the entry points of the city. “Backpacks, canisters, bottled water, wearing of sunglasses and bull caps, carrying of bladed weapons and handguns will be prohibited particularly in the activity areas,” Driz said. A total of 100 policemen from the Police Regional Office, 600 from the united force-multipliers from volunteer-civic-organizations and 900 Barangay Police Officers will be deployed for the occasion.

School Administrator is the leading actor in the institution in accomplishing the school’s vision. Failure of the school leader to orchestrate the school is indeed detrimental in reaching its dream to attain quality education. In other words the success of the institution depends large in the adeptness and capabilities of the school leader in directing and supervising the institution towards realizing its target to better serve its stakeholders. On the other hand, instructional supervision is the heart in attaining quality education. School head is the guiding light of the teachers in reaching its target to promote better learning. It is in his mandate to guide the teachers in improving teaching competence thus help them attained proficiency and efficiency in their waorks. He has to be equipped with the skills and knowledge in directing the teachers to ensure that everybody is moving on in

one direction. Through instructional supervision the teachers will receive input on the different strategies and approaches on how to facilitate teaching efficiently and effectively. It has been substantiated in the study conducted that teachers who are well-guided by their school leaders most likely achieve and influence the pupils in reaching their dreams. Moreover, teachers are more inspired to work when they are guided by the school head. More so if the instructional leader shares and demonstrates on how to apply some new teaching techniques and approaches in the teaching-learning process. Indeed, working together in instructional supervision promotes healthy relationship in the institution thus in effect quality education is achieved. To sum it up school leaders shall exercise utmost dedication and commitment in guiding and facilitating the teachers to achieve quality education.

COMMITMENT: The Bedrock in the Delivery of Educational Services By ANALYN A. DEL ROSARIO, Teacher I San Juan Elementary School, Imapsugong I District, Bukidnon

The School is an Institution of COMMITMENTS. Its organizational structure includes the PUPILS, the FACULTY, the STAFF, and the PRINCIPAL as the leader. The atmosphere of every Campus deliberately designed to foster acceleration of LEARNING PROCESS of Children recognized as the HOPE OF THE MOTHERLAND. The depiction of contemporary educational standards differs largely as compared to the customary learning mechanisms practiced by early gurus. Before, the learning process confined within the four corners of the classroom where the teacher

discusses the lessons and the pupils obediently sit on their respective chairs listening attentively and holding the palm of their hands. Nowadays, the students prepare visual aids at home, diligently discuss the topic in front of the class, and wait for the feedback of the adviser sitting calmly on the corner, listening meekly to the deliberation of the student. The strict and firm MR. PRINCIPAL is presently the pleasant friend who constantly pats ones shoulder and inspires most the people in school, the pupils, the subordinates, including the parents who constantly visit their children. Gone are the

sticks previously identical MR. PRINCIPAL. C o m m i t m e nt – a n expression rarely heard. Nevertheless, it is the best illustration of modern education. Learning should be an enjoyable experience for the child, a dedication to mold young minds and hearts, towards total human development. It must go beyond SCIENTIFIC FORMULAS, far abstract than any MATHEMATIAL CONCEPT, and more romantic than the best piece of LITERATURE. Education is a commitment to impart basic knowledge for an individual to live a decent and pleasurable life in the future.

LUISTRO, FSC posts the UPDATES, MEMORANDUM, PROGRAMS and other perti-

nent DIRECTIVES for the information and reference of his subordinates.

portant updates to the community through RADIO BROADCAST. The parents can readily relay information through Cellular Phones. Everybody knows ever ything on Television.

Am I Bad?

By POL S. TOYLO Teacher I SAN FERNANDO DISTRICT II

Bullying is so rampant nowadays especially in school with a big number of pupils inside a classroom. It seemed that pupils who bullies their classmates felt alright, not guilty and unobligated. Is this feeling common to children? In my everyday encounter with my pupils who were seemed differently every year, varied observations

and experiences were noted. Prior to the anti-bullying law, bullying was already observed ever since. Some pupils want to be attended in a negative way. They use to bully their classmates so that attention will transfer to him or her. They may not excel in academic, and not too kind to be caught by the teacher and classmates, but, excels best when they cause other children to cry. They seemed to be contented if

they well be warned by the teacher every day. If they were warned, they stopped and behaved temporarily but just in few minutes or longer as an hour, they rolls back to their routine of getting attention through misbehaving and calling their classmates using unideal names that would trigger problem inside and outside the classroom. As experienced, when I counseled pupils who encountered with this kind of problem, most of them preferred to be quiet without looking

Spread the Love

By Arun Jiko G. Ga Teacher I Talakag Central School Talakag I District

The most powerful tropical cyclone ever recorded in human history is super typhoon “Yolanda” (International codename: Haiyan) hits the Philippines on November 8, 2013. That was the most devastating event that happened in the history of the Philippines that killed more than 6,300 lives and more

than 1,000 still missing. The national government offered goods to solve the food shortage of areas affected by the calamity. The public and private sector collaborates to aid the affected areas. In fact, there were also humanitarian aids coming from the international community. One of the most affected areas was in Southern Leyte. The super typhoon hits and washouts the main street, building, bridges, houses and even public offices

into the eyes of the teacher. I made them look at my eyes and I talked to them softly in a fatherly and friendly way, then, they started to answer. All I can summarized from their answer is that straight from the heart, they felt guilty and disturbed of what they’ve done. It was about family orientation and status. Not about economical status but in terms of relationship in the family. Are they nurtured with love and proper guidance? Are they given enough time?

of every graduate in giving and congratulating them, with sincere eye contact. In this due, pupils who graduated were also challenged, encouraged and motivated with the presence of the Superintendent. Teachers and parents were also very happy for his special presence and commitment being a part of the memorable event of the graduates.

The Guest Speaker was Mrs. Menerva JumaritoVenancio teacher I of Namnam Elementary School. She highlighted her speech that the theme reminded everyone of how educations transform ones future from a seemingly shapeless, lifeless driftwood into a fine, elaborately, chiseled to a perfect piece of furniture. It pictured the kind of education a child must be with.

and schools. Almost none has been left for the people to live in the area. Even the safest place for evacuation areas has been affected by the super typhoon. One of the concern areas affected by the super typhoon Yolanda is the Tanghas Elementary School in the Municipality of Tolosa. The rooms were destroyed, books were flooded, roofs and ceilings were carried by strong winds. Teachers of Tanghas Elementary School were also affected by the super typhoon Yolanda. They cannot help the school because they

also need assistance for their families and relatives. The District of Talakag 1 in Division of Bukidnon headed by Dr. Leticia G. Ga, Schools District Supervisor, and School heads had made efforts to help the Yolanda victims. They have gathered goods, clothing’s and money to donate to the most affected areas of Southern Leyte. Out of many schools, Talakag District 1 had chosen Tanghas Elementary School to be their recipient for donations.

National school-based immunization of children By Rey J. Tacastacas Head Teacher II Bukang Liwayway ES Kibawe, Bukidnon

Ensuring the health of students, Department of Education is collaborating with government agencies, mainly with Department of Health (DOH) to do routine immunization program, such as this 2015 nationwide school-based immunization. DOH Secretary Janette

Garin, in a media release, said that vaccination has been scientifically proven to be most effective public health intervention. This is the reason why DOH is conducting herd immunity as defense mechanism of those who were immunized. In this way, people can prevent the spread of diseases, thus also protecting those who were not immunized. Just launched in this same month of August, the national

immunization targets school children in Grades 1, 4 and 7. They will be vaccinated with appropriate vaccines include measles-containing vaccine, Tetanus diphtheria, quadrivalent Human Papilloma Virus and Measles, Mumps and Rubella. The immunization is for all students however, parents who do not want their children to be vaccinated will not be forced to do so since the

students will only be vaccinated upon the consent of their parents. Consent forms will be given to ensure that the children to be vaccinated are permitted by their parents. It is good that DepEd and government agencies are doing this because for children to learn effectively, they should be healthy, disease-free and fit to absorb and learn the lessons daily.

Education programs to assist students suffering in poverty By Jenemer B. Puyos T-III San Jose Integrated School

Poverty is one of the major reasons behind the problems in education. It is also the reason behind the challenging rate of drop-outs and out-of-school youths in the country. Fact be told, 36 percent of students in year 2012 has been reported in dropping out after elementary and only 44 percent graduate in high school because of different reasons including financial instability.

The government is exerting effort in solving or if not, minimize this problem. Programs are implemented for such cause. The creation of Open High School Program (OHSP) is part of this as well. It is an alternative mode of formal secondary education program run by the Bureau of Secondary Education (BSE) of the Department of Education (DepEd) of the Republic of the Philippines. The program provides an opportunity for elementary school graduates, high school drop-outs and successful examinees of the Philippine Education Place-

Nutrition for Life

By Ave J. Sabanal MT-1

Research says that Nutrition is essential factor for life; persons who eat the right kind of foods that are rich in nutrients can boost the immune system to protect from different diseases. In view of these, pupils are taught in school the basic food groups so that they will be guided on the foods they will eat that provide necessary nutrients needed in their body

yet in effect they will become healthy and their immune system becomes strong to fight the different diseases. In line with this, nutrition month is celebrated every month of July. Different activities are organized reflecting the importance of food nutrients in our body. Pupils are taught on how to cook foods that are rich in nutrients needed to keep once body healthy. Lessons on health and the

ment Test (PEPT) to complete secondary education in a different learning mode compare to the regular one. The Alternative Learning System (ALS) is also created for similar purpose. It is a program that caters adults, persons with disabilities and as the same, out-of-school and drop-out individuals. This gave them the chance to finish unattended grade levels, so that they could be enrolled in educational level that are appropriate for their age and knowledge. ALS also introduces them to greater opportunities, giving them the

chance to be more productive. True, financial problems challenge our people in gaining knowledge that could be benefited from schools. In this thought, it is so saddening, thinking that these fellows can be productive too, and could be contributors to better the kind of economic status the country has. However, programs like OHSP and ALS come as good news. These are sorts of medicine that give these people hope that education is at reach no matter what kind of life one have.

importance of nutrients in our life are indeed integrated in their daily lessons. This year’s theme is “Timbang Iwasto, sa Tamang Nutrisyon at Ehersisyo.” emphasized the importance of eating healthy foods in our diet. This is a Nation-wide activity to celebrate Nutrition Month. Furthermore, it gives them the opportunity to show their talents and abilities in relation to nutrition. Cooking activities focus on the preparation of the three basic food groups

the go, grow and glow. Pupils are taught the essentiality of these foods to boost our immune system and helps provide youthful vigor. Nevertheless, the alluring activities enjoyed by children such as poster making, cooking, feeding, chants, songs and yells were the ways taught them on the DO’s and DON’Ts of foods. Foods intake contributes a greater factor in achieving a healthy life style. Eating too much of the food we like without looking at its benefits

EDUCATION Rights for IP’S By JOEY P. FLORENTINO, HT-I Lupiagan ES, Sumilao District, Bukidnon

Republic Act 8371 otherwise known as the Indigenous People’s Rights Act of 1997 or the IPRA LAW promulgated not only to PROTECT THE RIGHTS of the IP’s but also to PROVIDE EQUAL ACCESS to Government Programs and Basic Services. To m a t e r i a l i z e t h e mandate specified in the Implementing Rules and Regulations (IRR) of the IPRA Law, the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) issued a Memorandum paving the way of Mandatory Representatives to take seat in the Local Legislative Bodies may it be in the Barangay Council, the Sangguniang

Bayan or the Sangguniang Panlalawigan. In the same way, the Secretary of the Department of Education (DEP-ED) issued a Directive dated October 20, 2010, commencing the IP-Ed Program and facilitating its integration to the Subjects included in the contemporary curriculum. Only two schools met the criteria for PRIME school in Mindanao namely: Kitobo Elementary School of Kitaotao, Bukidnon and Laruk Elementary School of Kisolon, Sumilao, Bukidnon. A school is considered PRIME if 98% of its students belong to any Indigenous Cultural Community in the area.

New Mind-set in Creating Learning Environment By JOEY P. FLORENTINO, HT-I Lupiagan ES, Sumilao District, Bukidnon

CONTEMPORARY EDUCATION is RATIONAL and COMPREHENSIVE. It visualizes TOTAL HUMAN DEVELOPMENT and SOCIETAL PROGRESS. In the point of view of a typical head teacher like me, this is the best description of the Philippine Learning System. It is not enough for an EDUCATOR to imp ar t MATHEMATICAL CONCEPTS, explain SCIENTIFIC FORMULAS, teach LANGUAGE GRAMMAR and COMPREHENSION, and widen the children’s awareness in NARRATION, MUSIC, and POETRY. It is

also the primary objective of the mentor to broaden the pupil’s perspective and attitude towards life. This is the implication of various laws promulgated to carry out the didactic process in our country. The Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Act of 1997 (R.A. 8371), the Violation against Women and Children Act (R.A. 9262) including the CORPORAL PUNISHMENT ACT which generally defend the rights of the children. This is the grounds for total eradication of CORPORAL PUNISHMENT in Schools.

NUTRITION MONTH IN KALIPAYAN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL By JEFFREY L. OLASIMAN, Teacher I Kalipayan ES, Impasugong District, Bukidnon

Last July 2015, Kalipayan Elementary School celebrated its 27th Nutrition Month celebration with the theme “ Timbang Iwastosa Tamang Nutrisyon at Ehersisyo” Every Friday of the week during the month long celebration, activities were being held. Teacher and parents are being assigned also to prepare foods from organic ingredients and nutritious enough for the feeding program. The main purpose of the feeding activity is to post awareness about the importance of eating organic and nutritious foods. Through that feeding program, all the pupils including the entire community knew that living a healthy life is not expensive, they just need to be resourceful enough and could destroy bodily functions and may cause different diseases such as stomach pains, indigestion, constipation and the like. Moreover, skipping meals are also another factor that can contribute gas pains, hyper acidity and more. Indeed, Nutrition Month Celebration in school is a reminder to the pupils and stakeholders to eat nutritious food have balance diet and

look for the availability in the community. Some of the vegetables within the community that we prepared during the feeding program were mongo, pako, dakan , kulitis or spinach, native squash and other organic vegetables. We culminate the long month celebration last July 31,2015. Activities were cooking contest for Garde III and IV, Drawing contest for Grades I to VI and many others. The celebration was a successful one and this won’t be possible without the help of our community stakeholders, pupils and colleges most of all, our Almighty God who always guide us and give us strength to serve our school children and community as well. proper exercise. The celebration was concluded very successful and there was an all-out support of the stakeholders. The purpose was inculcated in the minds and the hearts of the pupils thus in effect it promotes proper nutrition using indigenous foods that are found in their own locality which are not expensive but rich in nutrients needed to make our life healthy.

Teachers do care

By DARIO R. ABALDE Teacher I District Property Custodian Imbatug Central Elementary School Imbatug, Baungon, Bukidnon

WHEN you first decide to enroll in Education fresh from high school, what was on your mind back then? At an early age of 17, you know that you love children and despite the daunting jobs of checking each and every student’s paper and making lesson plans for the next day, you know you are destined to that kind of job for life. Nobody enrolls in Education by accident. These unsung heroes and heroines really have the passion to teach kids. You may decide to become a teacher because you care about education and the students you’ll be working with. You know the lasting impact a great teacher can have on a student – perhaps having even experienced it yourself – and you want to make a positive impact on someone else. You want to be a role model.

Pag-IBIG records show that from July to December 2012 or during the inaugural months of the program, 287 member-borrowers availed of the Affordable Housing. Availments showed a 1,075 percent spike to 3,373 in 2013, with a loan value of P1.2 billion.

Everyone has stress because stress isn’t just something that we can totally control. Stress is simply a reaction to a stimulus that disturbs our physical or mental equilibrium. In other words, it’s a pervasive part of life. It’s a word generally used when one is experiencing something too much to take. Hence, Stress comes from different sources, might be at home, with peers, or with random people you’re dealing with and most of the time from a workplace. Use these tips to help keep stress at rest. Always realize the sources of your stress and what can you do about it. Consider its advantages and disadvantages then make judgment with proper discernment. Stand up for yourself in a polite manner even if everyone isn’t going your way. If you don’t want to be an open book perhaps at least learn to share how you’re feeling, speak out your deepest opinions, or beliefs, instead of becoming annoyed, wary, or inactive. Have an optimistic and lifelike behavior. Note that although there are certain things beyond your control yet, you’re always in charge of how you respond. Try to do some relaxation practices when you feel like things are going on its unusual way. Try breathing exercises, meditation, prayer, yoga, or listening to your favorite music which

You’ll feel better and be more prepared and positive to handle problems. Eat healthy and nutritious foods. Avoid too much sugar. Focus on fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. Try to manage your time wisely and say no, where you can, to things that would add more stress to your life. Find time for your hobbies and interests. Do away from sulking over with what’s done or happened already or what’s supposed to be done yet. If you’re tired, go get enough rest and sleep. Your body needs time to recover from stressful events. Go back to your work after when you rested; you could be more productive if you do so. Never rely on alcohol, drugs, or food to relax you against stress. Better spend time with people you love. Talk with a counselor or take a stress management class for more help. You may not be able to control the stressors in your world, but you can always alter your reaction to them. There are a lot of ways which could perfectly be done to pacify yourself from your utmost reaction every time. Instead of treating stress as injurious, consider it as an opposing wind pushing you up to your limits in reaching your pedestal. Be Positive!

Abot Alam Program in Diminishing OSY By ORENCIO L. PINSAHAN Jr. Teacher I Lantapan Central Elementary School Lantapan District

Education is important is developing a person which could enable an individual to be more productive. However, not everyone is given a change to attain school because of various problems. The Department of Education identified number of Filipino youths that did not attend to school. This group includes those who do not have interest in schooling, and also those who have no choice but to stop.Examples of these are those individuals, who

are experiencing financial instability, family problem, distance of school from home and lack of interest. The Department of Education aimed to lessen this problem among young people. Thus, the creation of ‘ Abot Alam Program’ made possible. This project is a nationwide campaign pushing for an improved delivery of free and quality education and eradication of Out Of School Youth (OSY) in the country. It is organized by the Department of Education in partnership in National Youth Commission.

‘Abot Alam Program’ aspires to minimize the number of Out of School Youth (OSY).This is done through the initiative of the department with the support coming from local Government Units (LGU) and other stakeholders. The Out of School Youths aging from 15-30 years old are encouraged to register to the said program. To eradicate the number of Out of School Youth in the community is not an easy task. However, this is possible if everyone will join hand-in-hand in promoting the importance of education to support the ‘Abot Alam Program.’

Dagmay springs from a Mandaya weaver’s dream. Each design tells the story of the weaver, community, and the spirits that live on earth. This is why every woven dagmay is unique and sacred.

300 more metric tons of durian expected to be exported to new Asian market

DAVAO City -- Durian growers in Davao City may soon export an additional 300 metric tons (MT) of the fruit to a new market in Asia, Larry Miculob, president of the Durian Industry Council of Davao said at the opening of the 3rd Kadayawan Durian Festival at SM Lanang Premier on Friday. Miculob, however, in December 2012. declined to say where She explained that El that new market is, ex- Niño, which is expected plaining they are still at the early stages of discussion with the importers there. In a recent media forum, he said they have been exporting 30 MT to Singapore for two years and 18 MT to Hong Kong since last year. Another market that is now also being eyed is Japan where they sent 50 samples of seedless and vacuumpacked fresh durian last week. Miculob advised durian growers to plant more and heed the best practices to jack up production up to eight to 10 MT per hectare from the current 4.6 MT per hectare to fill in the looming supply gap in two years. “Whoever plants durian, don’t abandon it. Our goal is to increase the productivity,” he said in Cebuano. If the farmers plant today, they should not worry about oversupply because there will be new export markets where they can ship out their fresh produce by the time the trees start bearing fruits, he said. He added that trainings have been provided by the Department of Agriculture (DA), Department of Trade and Industry, and Department of Science and Technology. Councilor Marissa Salvador Abella added said the region produced 67 MT of durian in 2014, 90 percent of which came from Davao City. But DA regional director Remelyn Recoter said production could be higher had it not been for super typhoon Pablo which struck the region

to persist until August 2016, has delayed the fruiting of some durian trees. The Durian Industry Council is also expecting a 25 percent drop in the production of durian grown on lowlands this year due to El Niño. But the productivity

of durian trees in Calinan, Baguio, and Toril districts has remained stable. “Early next year, El Niño will intensify. But compared to other regions, the impact on our region will be minimal,” she said. Abella added that

they want to encourage the farmers to go beyond just growing durian, adding that she desires durian growers develop the sense of entrepreneurship. “After we have organized the farmers, we want to strengthen and capacitate them

to become businessminded,” she said. The councilor will participate in the food trade expo in Nanning, China next month to see what opportunities await the durian growers and other farmers in the city. (Antonio L. Colina IV/ MindaNews)
