CASA DEL NIÑO CLINCHES SAYAWIT CHAMPIONSHIPS IN BOTH ELEM & HS DIVISIONS

In the recently concluded Buwan ng Wika Celebration mounted by the San Pedro Tourism Council, the CDN Children’s Choir and CadeBox from the Elementary and Science High School Departments respectively were proclaimed Champions in the Sayawit competitions held last September 30 at the Pacita Astrodome in San Pedro City, Laguna.

The CDN Children’s Choir rendered their contest piece “Para Sa Iyo Bayani” and choice song “Piliin Mo Ang Pilipinas” with their choir master Mr. Kennedy Tabon at the helm.  With their angelic voice and masterful performance, the kids won over the judges and audience alike and thunderous applause followed after they sung their last notes.  It was clear that the group was going to win which was confirmed by a unanimous decision from the judges.

Later in the afternoon, CadeBox (a combination of Cadence and Malebox) performed the contest piece “Ka Bayani” together with “Isang Gabing Maliwanag ang Buwan”, an original composition by Mr. Chito Maramag who trained the group.  It was a close fight as there were so many excellent performances from the competing choirs.  However, CadeBox got the nod from the judges noting that aside from the vocals, they also considered the other important criteria namely, choreography, costumes, props and concept.  Despite the split decision, the group was proclaimed winner after an intense deliberation.

The weeks prior to the competition were stressful to say the least as typhoons caused class suspensions and several delays.  However, it was well worth it as Casa del Niño proved once again that it is indeed the home of chorale champions despite the naysayers.

Credits go to Mr. Jaspher Payag  who designed the filipiniana inspired costumes, choreographed the movements of the children’s choir and also helped in the makeup of the CadeBox girls.  Special thanks to Ms. Katherine Trangco and the Himig Sanghaya Chorale for a workshop before the competition.

Last July 13, the Casa del Niño Science High School students held their acquaintance party at the CDN Arena, Pacita 2 Campus, San Pedro, Laguna.  The first big event of the school year, billed as “Groovy Ca Sa Party, Baby!”, was a well attended vintage-themed affair.  Aside from the party, it merged competitions for the freshmen and the oath-taking ceremonies of Club and Student Council Officers who spearheaded the occasion.

Mr. Richard A. Pustasa, CDNSHS Principal, welcomed the students which included Casans from the Sta. Rosa Campus who have been invited to the party for many years now.  “This event is not just a venue for fun but also a way to unite students from both campuses,” the school head said.  Ashley Papas Rinonos, a senior student, delivered her inaugural address as President of the Student Council.

Several Grade 7 students competed for the traditional Mr. & Ms. Freshman pageant and in the end, two students emerged with the title:  Jake Zavala, Mr. Freshman 2013 and Aaliyah Benizano, Ms. Freshman 2013.  For the other competition, an energetic and graceful group from section Keppler won the Freshman Dance Contest.

Special awards were also given to other deserving students. New Faces of the Year were Grade 7 students Nicole Cortez and Princess Nicole de Mesa while the organizers declared David Kingston and Nica Mendez as Mr. & Ms. Fashionista.  It was deemed that both of them stood out in their vintage-inspired outfits.

The students enjoyed the evening with the blaring music, spell-binding lights and a photo booth that captured the gaiety for posterity.  It was observed that the merrymaking was both riotous and peaceful at the same time from the moment it started at 7 PM until it concluded before midnight.

According to the SC Officers, proceeds from the ticket sales will be used for their proposed projects this school year.

CASANs! We are Phenomenal

Written by: Mariella Talan

II-Darwin, ‘13

 

 It has been more than three decades since Casa del Nino started to inculcate students how to bring out the best in their minds, bodies and souls. Through the years, children were taught with arithmetic , grammar and many more. But as a current student of this institution, I believe that none of these things is a basis of being a True Casan at all. Because if you’re a real one, you should possess the greatest lesson this institution has taught us all. It is a True Casan’s strongest armor and greatest victory. It is something that we have all in our hearts. And it is nothing but best character, I suppose. Nothing but the greatest character.

 

But one question binds us all. What does it take to be a real Casan? Who is a real Casan? Are you even a real one? There are several Casans out there, but only a few are true. Only a few strives to be the best. Only a few strives to be phenomenal. But I believe that being a True Casan is not all about being great at anything or being academically powerful, because a real Casan’s power lies within his heart. It’s all about his values and his character. And the True Casan’s biggest mission? It is to inspire other Casans to be like them. It is to have the best lineage of Casans. It is to have every Casan the best in his own way. It is to have every Casan an inspiration to others. It is to have every Casan phenomenal.

 

And in the end, we Casans should unite and unleash the power that lies within us. The domination of True Casans shall prevail. A Casan that loves. A Casan that hopes. A Casan that inspires. We are True Casans in our own ways. Therefore, we are phenomenal. It is the greatest prodigy of our generation. It is the Casan Phenomena. And as a Phenomenal Casan, I have a big question for you. Do you think you are one of us?
