MATH AND SCIENCE MONTH CELEBRATION 2009

The month-long celebration was formally launched on September 4, 2009 with a Eucharistic Celebration at the Janssen Heights Gym. It was followed with a creative interpretation of this year's theme: "The World: Moved by the Word". A group of selected Grades 4, 5 and 6 pupils performed the dance and pantomime with the special participation of Mr. Marcial Golosino, a faculty member. Starting on September 7, trivia questions were given by the Math and Science teachers for pupils to answer.

On September 10, the Grade 5 Family paid a visit to the Bohol Bee Farm in Dauis where they were toured around the well-kept gardens and got to see and smell for themselves a variety of herbs used in cooking. Moreover, they were able to see the bee colonies and received a lecture on how these insects produce honey. They were also exposed to the various products of the farm. Meanwhile, on September 11, the Grade 6 Family went to the SAVIMA ( San Vicente Mangrove Association ) Boardwalk in San Vicente, Maribojoc where they were exposed to the different mangrove species.

The Grade 4 Family attended a symposium at the Multi-Media Center on September 14, 2009. Dr. Marlon Jala facilitated a discussion on "Making Math Fun and Easy". On the 15th of the same month, the Grade 5 pupils attended a symposium at the same venue. They learned more about Climate Change from the guest facilitator, Engr. Necitas Ruiz. Then, the much-awaited visit to the "Science on the Move" interactive museum at The Block took place on September 17-18; all pupils from Kinder 1 to Grade 6 found the experience stimulating and educational. Some parents even joined their kids in the said activity.

On September 25, a Science Congress was held at the GS AV Hall. This was participated by Grade 6 pupils. Selected groups presented their investigatory projects before a panel of judges. They were also made to answer questions pertaining to their output. Then on September 28-29, the AV Hall was opened for everyone to view the Science projects exhibited.

For the first time, the month-long celebration had its culminating program. Facilitated by Mrs. Sheila Alturas and Mr. Celso Tabaranza, a very exciting and fun-filled "The Amazing Math & Science Challenge" ensued at the Janssen Heights Gym. Participating pupils donned their helmets and protective gears. They went through series of odd challenges which made them apply their Math and Science know-how as well as physical abilities. Towards the end of the program, trivia winners were awarded as well as the triumphant Math and Science challengers were awarded.
