Electrifying Science Clubbers For Sustainable Energy!!!

The Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC), the first and largest umbrella science club organization, in its 41st year of unfaltering expertise, proudly presents an electrifying September-long activity that will leave you charged up. With the theme, “SCIENTRICITY: Energizing Science Clubs for Sustainable Energy,” this year’s NSCM aims to introduce students and teachers to sustainable energy and engage them in the call for its responsible use.

Science Club Month has ended again, and we students enjoyed celebrating it. I remembered the launching program prepared by science club officers, and it was after our Flag Ceremony there was a little program. The last thing that happened that time is the releasing of balloons. In that program they announced the different activities that we students can attend. The activities were: Ginoo at Binibining Kalikasan 2012, Robotics Dance Competition, Science Quiz, Extemporaneous Speaking Contest, Scrap Art Making and others.

I know those activities were very important for me, but I don’t have all the talents in the world. There were only two contests that I joined, the Robotics Dance Competition and Science Quiz. It was fun joining even if we didn’t get the title as champion.

The theme was very nice, it reminded me that I should conserve energy. As we all know we experience a Global Phenomenon, it is Climate Change and Global Warming. We cannot change the past, the only thing we need to do is change our ways for all of us, before it is really too late. We should conserve and sustain energy.

Buwan ng Wika

Buwan nanaman ng Agosto at alam nating lahat na ito ay buwan ng wika. Marami nanamang aktibidades na tiyak na pwede naming salihan na mga estudyante. Pero bago ang lahat, alamin muna natin kung paano naging Buwan ng Wika ang Agosto. 

Ang Agosto ay dineklara ni Pangulong Fidel V. Ramos bilang Pambansang Buwan ng Wika. Ayon sa kasaysayan ang Linggo ng Wika ay nauna nang itinalaga sa petsang mula ika-27 ng Marso hanggang ika-2 ng Abril  ni Pangulong Sergio Osmeña. Nabago ito ng magkaroon ng proklamasyon si Pangulong Ramon Magsaysay. Ang pagdiriwang ay tinalaga sa petsang mula ika-13 hanggang ika-19 ng Mayo. Sa pagbabagong ito naging impossible para sa mga mag- aaral at guro na makisali sa selebrasyon ngLinggo ng Wika. (http://www.pehpot.com/2011/08/buwan-ng-wika-at-linggo-ng-wika.html)

Sa taong ito ang tema ng buwan ng wika ay “Tatag ng Wikang Filipino, Lakas ng Pagka-Pilipino.” Diba ang ganda ng tema ngayon. Ang lalim ng kahulugan ng tema para sa Buwan ng Wika ngayong taon. Para sa akin ang ibig sabihin nito ay, kailangan nating patatagin ang paggamit sa ating sariling wikang Filipino. Bakit? Upang kahit sa ating pananalita ay makamit natin ang kalayaan. Hindi porke mayaman ka na eh gagamit ka na ng ingles (halimbawa lamang), dapat wikang Filipino parin. May mga maliliit na bata ngayon ingles ang unang natutunan nilang salita. Kahit na gumagamit tayo ng mga banyagang wika sana hindi natin makalimutang gamitin ang sariling atin. Magpaka-tatag tayo, gamitin natin ang wikang Filipino, magpakadalubhasa tayo rito, at tiyak lalong lalakas ang ating pagka-pilipino. 

Mas maganda na ang alam mong gamitin ang ating sariling wika kesa sa magaling kang magsalita ng salitang banyaga pero naiiba ka naman sa komunidad na iyong kinabibilangan. Sa ngayon nakasali na ako sa Tagisan ng Talino sa aming paaralan, sayang nga lang naman hindi kami pinalad ng aking mga kasamahan kaunti nalang nakamit na sana namin ang tagumpay. Pero hindi pa huli ang lahat. Marami pang paligsahan na pwedeng salihan. MAGING MAKABAYAN 

GO GO GO!!!!

Nutrition Month Celebration

It is July again, and this month is the Nutrition Month Celebration that we students always wait for. We student’s celebrate it in ways like joining the school activities, in line with this month’s celebration. Student leaders of the STEP Club of Ilocos Sur National High School, who are in charge in all of the nutrition month activities, tried their best to perform their own duty. The theme for this month’s celebration is “Pagkain ng gulay ugaliin, araw-araw itong ihain”.

What is proper nutrition? Proper nutrition is the correct intake of nutrients that our body needs. We need to practice proper nutrition for us to be healthy and for us to live a long life. Proper nutrition will not be achieved if we avoid to eat vegetables. Vegetables are very important to all of us. It gives us the vital nutrients that we need for proper growth and maintenance.

The problem nowadays, some children and teenagers doesn’t like to eat vegetables. They prefer to eat meat always for breakfast, lunch and dinner. They also much prefer to eat junk-foods. Unfortunate families that lives in squatter areas, like in some places in Manila, they don’t have proper nutrition. Why did I say this? I watched documentaries about them and I saw what they eat. They always eat noodles, and other families they eat leftovers. The main reason is they don’t have money for them to buy vegetables or meat or they don’t know how to produce. Having no money is not a hindrance for us to have a proper nutrition.

We need to celebrate Nutrition Month in our school to remind and show that we should observe proper nutrition. The activities for this month’s celebration are Mr. and Ms. Nutrition 2012, Nutri-Jingle Composition contest, cook fest, and many more. In these activities, it is were the students show off their own talents.
