This jaw-dropping show, hosted by the BED teacher Mrs. Chloe Maaño and BED student Joshua Surquia, was broadcast live at the SHC website (www.shc.edu.ph). Seen among the audience were Ms. Perla Bautista and Mr. Tommy Abuel who performed the role of Hermana Fausta and Fernando Amorsolo, respectively, in the movie “Fausta”.
Performers during the musical show were the BED choir led by Mr. Lamberto Galleno, SHC Music Ministry with selected HED students headed by Mr. Joel Boragay, HED faculty members with their club president Mr. Ronald Uriarte, young BED faculty members, “High School Musical” performers from the BED with Mr. Edward Mancilla, Marillac Grantees, school administrators, the Daughters of Charity sisters, and SHC President Sr. Fe G. Gedalanga, D.C. playing the violin. A tenor from the Cultural Center of the Philippines, Mr. Frankie Aseñero, who is the husband of SHC alumna Ms. Nanette Nacorda, graced the night and rendered songs well applauded by the audience.
It was an unforgettable musical night for the SHC family and friends, and this was made possible by the program chairperson Engr. Elda Aranilla. (Dianne Belleza and Reggie de Guzman)
BED TALUMPATIAN AND BALAGTASAN
It is not only the 125th Founding Anniversary of SHC that the school celebrated; the month of August is also the “Buwan ng Wika.” With that, the Basic Education Department observed the “Buwan ng Wika” by having activities aligned to it such as the Talumpatian and the Balagtasan.
Student representatives of each high school level showed off their skill in delivering a Filipino speech, but like any other contests, only few will emerge as winners. They are the following:
Grade 8 Victor Fuentes – 1st place
Grade 9 Daniel Calzado – 2nd place
Grade 7 Jaya Angelu Ramos – 3rd place
Grade 7 Brandon Leif Bebonia – 4th place
1st place: Grade 7 (Rei Luis Airon Domingo, Rei Luis Anton Domingo, and Zae Xilca
2nd place: Grade 8 (Daryl Obciana, Kervin Jopson, and Clifford Gasis)
3rd place: Grade 9 (Jasen Parentela, Lea Bardomeo, and Mari Yamazaki)
Special numbers were also presented at the Hermana Fausta Hall to show how rich the Filipino culture and tradition is, like the songs and dances executed by the very cute Kindergarten students. (Jamaica Zoleta and Jayvee delos Reyes)
HED CHEERDANCE COMPETITION
Different colleges showed their technical abilities and artistry in cheer dancing. All of them had their own way of surprising the crowd. Rendition of Michael Jackson steps, towering pyramids and popular songs like “Nobody” and “Jaiho” were seen throughout the presentations.
All of them were great, but in the end there would only be one winner. The College of Business Administration stood out for both prime movers and cheer dance competition. They did a modern version of “tinikling” and executed quick and flawless routines, not to mention their perfect high pyramids. No wonder they were given the title as “Champions.”
Other results are as follows:
Prime Movers: 2nd runner up - College of Computer Science
3rd runner up - College of Accountancy
Cheer Dance Competition: 2nd runner up - College of Computer Science
3rd runner up - College of Arts and Sciences
The College of Nursing participated in this activity with an intermission from its Nursing Prime Movers. (Jimbelle Uy)

The afternoon rain did not hinder the Grand Float Parade as it started around 3 in the afternoon, marching past the long stretch of Quezon Avenue and Merchan Street. The parade was made more memorable by the colorful costumes of the students, the upbeat music from the BED Lyre Band, and some street dancing by the HED students. (Ma.
