She also mentioned some of the things the administration is doing to give its students the best start to their future.

There were lively interactive sessions during the discussion by the Director of Student Affairs and Guest Speaker, Mrs. Esperanza Balatbat. The main theme of her address was on parenting tips and family values in which parents gave their views on what could be done to improve parenting and have a better rapport between them and their children.
