TWO INTERNATIONALLY - acclaimed independent film makers are to personally facilitate a seminar-workshop on “Intelligent Film Viewing” on Saturday, August 16, in Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS in Mandurriao, Iloilo City, with select high school Filipino teachers from Iloilo and Guimaras.
This partly-subsidized event is initiated by Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS High School through its president Fr. Joseph Y. Haw, SJ, himself a former Filipino teacher. It is in line with the celebration of the Buwan ng Wika with the theme: “Filipino: Wika ng Pagkakaisa”.
The “Matalinong Panonood ng Pelikula” seminar-workshop aims to respond to the need of teachers to familiarize themselves with “critical film viewing”—the latest basic skill required in the K-12 curriculum; equip teachers with experiences and approaches necessary to enhance the probing and critical thinking skills of the students through viewing independent (indie) films; and improve the capacity of teachers in relating social issues to students’ lives through movie reviews.
Private schools from across the Province of Iloilo attended the annual Golden Pen Awards organized by the Regional English Circle, July 12-13, 2014.
The writeshop and contest was held at the Hua Siong College of Iloilo, Iznart Street, where over 100 delegates participated, among which are student-writers from Ateneo de Iloilo – Santa Maria Catholic School Grade School.
PUPILS from three elementary schools in the metropolis were fed and became witnesses to the launching of the Blue Spoon—a comprehensive long-term feeding program of the Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS community—during the celebration of the Feast of St. Ignatius Thursday, July 31.
