In the past weeks, Casa del Nino students competed and won in several contests in both arts and sports.  The CDN Red Stallions led the pack of victors in winning both the Volleyball and Basketball Boys Divisions at the San Pedro Area Meet, beating competitors from the city’s private schools.

The Volleyball Boys team, led by coach Gene Salamat, won all of their games prior to the finals where they vanquished the competition convincingly. The Basketball team on the other hand had a nail-biting last minute in the championship game as the opposing team managed to lessen the gap to only two points in the last few seconds.  The Red Stallions, led by coach Anthony Gutierrez,  are now busy preparing for the District Meet as a result of that victory.

The Volleyball Girls team managed to land in second place after their star player got injured during their second game proving to be a blow to the team’s  confidence which affected their game negatively.

In the Literary and Musical Competition organized by the San Pedro Private Schools Administrators Association (SPPRISAA), Shane Brutas and Nicole de Jesus, trained by Mr. Kennedy Tabon, were declared Champions in Vocal Duet .  Ellana Cacho was Second place in Extemporaneous Speech while CADENCE came in third place in the Senior High School Chorale Competition.

Mr. Dennis Cabanban, Head of the Sports Development Office was more than satisfied with the performance of the students as they brought honours to the school  again in the said fields.
