Selected Senior High School students won first place in the Jingle-Making Competition on June 29, 2018 during the Culmination Activity of the Philippine Environment Month in the Baybay City SP Auditorium, Legislative Building. The program, organized by the City Government of Baybay through the City Environment and Natural Resources Office (CENRO), lasted for two days, from June 28 until 29.


Their original composition, “Mag Recycle Ta,” will be recorded and played in 92.5 Groove FM. They also received Php 3,000.00 for winning first place. Contestants for the Jingle-Making Competition include: Sheena Abadiez, Elmer Tremaine Garduce, Jamiella Raga Lawagon, Cristine Tapayan, Rane Marie Jum Yunzal, John Kenneth Oponda, Anton Lorenz Presnedez, Raina Reyes, Francisco Abapo, and Rochelle Posas. Their coach was Mr. Rowen Jay Loquillano.

After learning that they’ve won, the Directress, Sister M. Maribel Piangco, OSF congratulated them and said that she is proud of them in a text to Mr. Tamaca. Their win, however, came as a surprise especially after being able to prepare only for one day.

This comes after the School was invited by the City Administrator to send delegates for the various competitions for the Culminating Activity with “Beat Plastic Pollution” as the theme. This was in line with the celebration of the World Environment Day on June 5.

Headed by Mr. Jerome Tamaca, students also joined other competitions like the Essay-Writing with Benny Barolini, coached by Ms. Arjoy Yap; Mural-Painting Competition with John Philip Leorna, Jo Anne Jeanne Lanzar, Liv Alexa Alera, and Axl Fitzgerald Bulawan, coached by Ms. Rochell Tagolgol; Slogan and Poster Making with Franz Jason A. Eumague and Mary Christine P. Arenal, coached by Ms. Cherlyn B. Manguiat; and Mosaic-Poster Making with Kenner Essen Rongcales and Jamila Jabines, coached by Mr. Samuel Alao. Consolation prices of Php 500 were given to non-winning participants in each category.

Being Christ-centered was the highlight of the outputs of the students in the various competitions, reflecting the Vision Statement of FCIC. This is especially true in the Mural-Painting Competition with them being the only delegates to feature a figure of Jesus Christ in relation to the program’s theme and the environment, which is also one of the missions of the school.

Contestants for both the Slogan and Poster Making and Mosaic-Poster Making Competitions were shocked when they were informed that they would work individually, after having to prepare to work by pair. In the end, they persisted to work individually, opting out of the suggestion that one in each of them would not compete to give way to the other contestant.

“This is the start.” This is what Mr. Alao said optimistically after winning the Jingle-Making Competition.
