ltsgroup-discussion.jpgThe annual Leadership Training Seminar (LTS) was held last July 18, 2008, at the Early Education Department (EED). What was usually prepared for class presidents and members of the Student Council was expanded this year to include club presidents, committee heads, and varsity team captains to make this year’s LTS meaningful to more student leaders.

ltspresentation.jpgThe participants learned the hows and whys of leadership in making organizations grow during the activity starting at 5:00 in the afternoon of July 18 till 10:00 in the morning of July 20. Team-building activities such as “A Walk to Remember”, “Project Proposal Making”, and “Cultural Night” contributed to the students’ maturity, bringing out their potentials to be men for others.

ltspanel.jpg“Project Proposal Making”, a competitive group activity, was a standout, as the student leaders, together with their facilitators, presented project proposals in front of a panel of judges composed of Mr. Exxon Yu, Social Science Chairperson, Mr. Brian Maraña, CLE Teacher, and Ms. Aimee Apolinario, Assistant Principal for Academics.

Mr. Michael de los Reyes, Assistant Principal for Formation, Mrs. Fides Abad, Student Activity Program (SAP) Coordinator, and Mr. Maraña served as speakers for different sessions of the workshop.

ltsparticipants.jpgParticipants were able to share their knowledge and capabilities during those talks aiming to teach the students everything about trustworthiness and proper decision-making. Members of the Student Council Executive Board (SCEB), as well as the following teachers: Mr. Jake Aragon, Ms. Toni Rose Chua, Ms. Betty Didulo, Ms. Dandi Lopez, Mrs. Abad and Mr. Maraña, acted as facilitators.

It was the SC’s initiative to develop students’ leadership skills. Around 80 student leaders were invited, but only 51 attended. Considering the objectives met, relationships built, and the insights gained from the speakers, the seminar was successful,” said Martin de Joya, SCEB Vice President.
