BID Educational Trip

Leave a comment

Thursday, Feb 24, 2011 was the long-awaited day for the Educational Trip of BID students, faculty, staff and parents. The places of itinerary were chosen by the teachers in connection with the Interdisciplinary Thematic Unit (ITU): “Electrical Energy” they had taught in the class. These places were the Wawa Dam in Montalban, Rizal; Science Discovery Center in the Mall of Asia; the Meralco Museum in Ortigas and Manila Ocean Park in Luneta.

In Montalban, not only did the students see the beautiful view of the trees, the rock formation and the music of the birds and the coolness of the wind in the early morning. They also saw how the dam generates power. Enjoying nature, everybody took out their food and spent the time eating their breakfast. Some did not waste time
but rented the raft and went sailing.

The next stop was the Science Discovery Center in MOA where the students tried to play some interactive games and saw robotic displays. They experienced how earthquakes happen and move mechanically. Plus many others, the film was shown how the planets and stars collide and moved in its axis.

The third stop was the Meralco Museum where they presented a 15-minute film about the history of
Meralco (Manila Electric Company) and how to conserve electricity. In the museum, there were prominent people who became the heads of the company through the years. There were memorabilias, the tramvia (the first electrical train in the Philippines) and the miniature homes to show how the power plant is distributed to the different users.

In the Manila Ocean Park which was the last place visited, there was the Sea lion show, the fish spa, and the “Aquatica”, the dancing fountain. Almost everybody enjoyed the fish spa where the tiny fish they called the “doctor fish” were given the time to remove the dead cells from the feet. Actually, it felt like somebody was tickling your toes and feet. It was indeed a hilarious and refreshing experience.

Mock Wedding

Leave a comment

First semester ministerial students conducted a mock wedding in August 2010 as part of their course requirements in Christian Family. The

students made thorough preparations for the event: from the invitation, program, decorations, to the simple “reception”.

Jackson Manis played the role of the officiating minister, Joanna Mae Bautista as the bride and Jeric Pesic as the groom. The other students who were imports from elementary and high school classes served as the secondary sponsors and participants in the wedding .The principal sponsors were played by the ever supportive faculty and staff of BID. Far from solemn, the activity was a funny experience but meaningful for the students.

1 Comment

Last September 8, 2010, four people from Johnson Controls, Inc. namely, Ma. Lourdes Sierra, Ms. Noblita Lintag, Mr. Arnie Bugay and Ms. Melanie Abad, visited BID for an initial survey of BID.

BID prepared a short program for the group which started with an opening prayer, welcome remarks from the school president, interpreted songs “Welcome to the family” from the elementary students, and  “Friend of God” from the high school students. Later, Ms. Des Sierra introduced the members of the team and the purposes of Johnson Controls in extending help to the school. The program ended with a prayer for the team and its members.

After the program, the group went for a campus tour with the President, Rev. Elena Castillo and the Business Manager of the school, Ms. Liza Sia. They took pictures of the building and things that needed repairs. Many questions were asked which were answered by the BID personnel.

The team left with more information about BID. It is always heart- warming when visitors come to offer their willingness to partner with the school in assisting its needs. May God continue to bless Johnson Controls, Inc and all its members as they endeavor to help our brothers and sisters who are deaf.

118 Deaf, majority are young people, attended the Deaf Youth Fellowship held in BID on Aug. 28, 2010 with Ptr. Victorino Jervoso II, the speaker, sharing the message “Reuse, Reduce and Recycle” from Gal. 5:13-15. He explained that we are the “Salt of the Earth” and we should use our talents and skills to help others. He said, “Share your knowledge to those who are spiritually immature.” He also read from Mt. 28:19-20 stressing the truth that we need to “Go and Witness” or spread the gospel of Christ to everyone. Later, he read Hebrews 12:1 emphasizing that we need to teach everyone repeatedly and not lose hope teaching his Word.
In the afternoon, there was a workshop and Bible games. The deaf were grouped together into 10 -12 with a leader or pastor. Everyone was encouraged to reflect and interact with the message they received on the 3 R’s. A forum was held for some questions and answers. After, there were Bible and parlor games, like Verse Relay, Newspaper game and Box Relay. Everyone enjoyed the games.
After, Department Director, Rev. E. Castillo was called to share a brief message. Later, she was surprised by the deaf’s applause and a birthday song to honor her on her birthday. A cake was brought to her to blow and Ptr. Jim de Guzman led a birthday prayer for her.
It was a blessed day for everyone who came to the gathering.
