Sayaw, Sabel

The Silay City government and Locsin Genealogy Foundation, Inc. sponsored the presentation of "SAYAW, SABEL", a neo-ethnic ballet choreographed by Agnes Locsin last July 23, 2010 at Natalio G. Velez Sports and Cultural Center. SFAS high school students, mostly members of the dance club, theatre guild and chorale and some teachers watched the show and had a group photo taken with Silay City mayor, Jose "Oti" Montelibano.

PhotoJourn for Teens

The BACPAT Youth Development Foundation and the Tuklas Learning Center of the Negros Museum held the"PhotoJourn for Teens" Workshop at the Negros Museum last July 20 and 21, 2010 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.

The workshop was conducted by Pierre Emmanuel Michel, an award winning French photojournalist who was traveling around the Philippines at that time.

SFAS sent Earl Tarrosa, 2nd year student and Jessica Estardo, 3rd year student to attend the workshop as they were very much interested to learn how to take photographs. Their favorite part of the workshop was when they took pictures of people in the Capitol lagoon and talked to them.

Seniors Getting Ready for College

On August 25, 2010, 4th year students will take the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE). This is a requirement for many (if not all) colleges; and some universities, especially those who offer college scholarships which base the grant on the rating of the applicant for this test. The students have been attending Saturday morning classes since June till the week before exams for an NCAE review. The review covers the following subjects: Science, English (Paragraph Meaning and Logical Organization of Ideas), Math (Data Sufficiency, Numerical Ability, Problem Solving, and Quantitative Relationship), Manipulative Skills, Clerical Ability, Verbal and Non-Verbal Abilities and Entrepreneurial Ability.
