August 1, 2019 – The Teacher Education Council (TEC) of Pasig Catholic College supervised by the program head, Mrs. Maria Teresa C. Radovan, went to the University of the Philippines-Diliman to have a forum with the UPD College of Education Student Council (UPCED SC) for a benchmarking of best practices and also to identify what and where improvements are called for.

The PCC TEC was warmly welcomed by UPCED SC Chairperson Eugene Solla and University Student Council Eduk Representative Kris Miranda, together with other council officers at Room 106 of the historic Benitez Hall that houses the College of Education. The forum began with the introduction of each council officer from both schools that set a more sociable atmosphere and followed by a simple snack while keeping to know more about each other’s school background.

The forum continued with Mary Crisselle Sanchez, the Senior Beadle of PCC TEC, asking about the various activities the UPCED SC has been conducting. Eugene Solla made mention of Kapihan, an initiative of the council that makes the college facilities available for 24 hours for all teacher education students during “hell weeks” with free coffee and cupcakes to keep themselves awake. Randelle Rama, the Council VP of PCC TEC raised the possibility of the UPCED SC officers being the facilitator of the upcoming Team Building Activity of the PCC TEC in September and the famed Sunken Garden being the venue. Kris Miranda gladly responded, “Of course, yes. We just have to confirm the schedule and program of the activity.” The PCC TEC President Junie Cabantoc also solicited for organizational structure and scheme of the council. What were remarkable with Eugene’s answer were about the Tutorial Assistance Committee or the Tutee Free as they call it, with which they cater students with free tutorial services particularly those who experience academic deficiencies and the Sports and Health Committee that also promotes mental health awareness among students. Afterwards, Junie continued asking for UPCED SC officers’ pieces of advice on how to successfully keep the excellence as a student- leader.

The forum culminated with Mrs. Radovan thanking the UPCED SC for pleasantly accepting the invitation for benchmarking. ”Whatever you have shared with us will surely help not just the council but the college of PCC as well.”, Mrs. Radovan added.

The Psychology Society of the College Department of Pasig Catholic College, expressed their kindness and generosity to the poor through the ‘Taste and See the Mercy of God’ Feeding Program last Wednesday, 24 July 2019 at the PCC Main Campus (Façade). It was said that this has been almost a monthly activity led by the religious institute of the school, whereas, last Wednesday, it was supported and funded by their program.
 
At exactly 6:40am, Sister Nida Thorno officially began the program with an opening ceremony of catechism, marked by the gospel of Luke 11:1-13. For countless of times, she asked the beneficiaries how important a prayer is─ particularly The Lord’s Prayer─ for each and everyone. The attendees remained quiet for a few minutes until one of them answered “Kapurian sa Diyos para sa kaligtasan.” Sister acknowledged their answer then directly went on with her preaching, breaking down the parts of The Lord’s Prayer.
 
Minutes went by and sister finally concluded her catechism with a simple quote, saying: “Maikli man kung pakikinggan ang Ama Namin, ngunit napakarami agad ng mga intensyong naiakyat sa Ama ni Hesus.” At 6:55am, they recited their prayer before meal and had fallen in line for their food.
 
Abel Gallardo, the Public Relations Officer of Psychology Society, served the soup they prepared for the twenty-nine beneficiaries including some traffic enforcers and security guards outside the school. Everyone seemed to like the soup that some even went back for their second and third serving. The huge casserole emptied hastily, and the team, together with Ms. Unite, Psychology Society adviser and program head of the BS Psychology, Mrs. Docot and other faculty members went on to tidy up the place and wash the used utensils.
 
At exactly 7:20am after finishing up, the beneficiaries expressed their gratitude and went home together with their families and friends. The attentiveness and participation of Psychology Society made way for the short program’s success. They may have woke up really early that morning and even came in with empty stomachs, but their hearts went full by feeding those who are in need. It was definitely a memorable and cherishing activity
