In an effort to maintain international linkages with ASEAN countries, Baliuag University (BU) has renewed its partnership with Thailand’s Chumphon Sueksa School on April 6, 2015. Mr. Kitti Kittichontawat, director/owner of Chumphon visited the University, along with his faculty members, for the renewal of the Memorandum of Agreement.
Chumphon Sueksa School is a primary elementary school that has collaborated with BU’s College of Education for the practice teaching/on-the-job training of its teacher education students. Trainees receive free accommodation and honoraria for providing English tutorial classes for their on-the-job training.
A significant number of teacher education students have already completed their on-the-job training in the said school. After their OJT, the school management offers teaching jobs to practicumers, resulting in not a few number of BU education graduates working there. In fact, the current principal of the Thai school, Ma. Rhodelynne Gonzalez-Thepwarin, was a graduate of Baliuag University and had also completed her on-the-job training in Chumphon.
With their growing commitment to strengthen the partnership, Chumphon Sueksa School is preparing to send some of its students for an English Camp at the Basic Education Department of the University.
Reminder from the Office of Student Affairs:
Look your BEST in BUniform!
Each school has its own policy about what to wear. Thus, students enrolled in any school, college or university should abide by the rules and regulations on wearing the appropriate uniform inside the school premise to promote student discipline. This will encourage the students to act responsibly at all times and protect the integrity of the school. This will also remind them that the school is a place for learning and personal development. The school uniform serves as the identity of the students enrolled in schools, colleges or universities. By wearing uniform, outsiders can be easily identified and controlled from wandering inside the campus. Thus, safety of the students and other school personnel is ensured. Aside from discipline, the implementation of rule on school uniform also teaches conformity. These two qualities should be imbibed by the students because these are vital in later life as they deal with government laws and social norms. Lastly, school uniforms make everyone feel equal. It symbolizes unity and promotes a sense of community and belonging which is significant in boosting someone’s self-esteem.

Get to know Baliuag University’s Mr. P as he opens up a whole new different side of him.
BU Advocates in 2009. It was totally accidental! They were, at that time, recruiting newbies. One moment, my group was just passing by the org’s office when my crazy friends push me off inside by the door, then, Voila! I am already being screened! Then, I was chosen, became a member of the org… Guess, that’s where it all started. Exposure!
I could vividly tell you all my fond childhood memories, but, one stood out best. It was the 1st time I experienced people joined hands for me. 6th Grade when I join a contest and won 1st, my school treated me at Jollibee. I got chicken and spaghetti then, on the glass panel beside us, there was this group of street children… I don’t know, I just got out and shared my food. When I looked back inside, they were like “Ang galing naman nung bata…”
My dad is a Muslim and my mom is a Christian – growing up, dealing with that fact is a challenge. My classmates used to tease me about that, a lot.
I used to draw. : ) In my early years in college, I joined two or so poster making contests. It was sort of my artistic outlet that time; I don’t know what happened through the years? Haha!
Seeing the reality of life, I used to think of joining all sorts of talent searches out there. My goal is just to win a house and lot for my family to have a decent home to stay at.
Before, I had high hopes in Metro colleges/universities because I thought of the network. But, later on, it came to me that it’s not about the school. After all, it would be about what a person you have become.
Marketing is something I want to do in the long run. I think of marketing professionals as “jacks of all trades”. But, later on, I want to serve the public, like in the government, specifically in the Department of Tourism.
Ever since I was exposed to school activities thru the BU Advocates, opportunities in joining several regional or national model student searches came one after the other. At first, I would just like to have a banner of myself to be posted along the campus, but, later on, it has been a calling – like, what I am really suppose to do apart from my professional career, Volunteerism and Leadership.
If you aren’t a marketing graduate now, what do you think would you be?
I think, I’ll be a PBB alumnus. Haha! Seriously, before the start of School Year 2009, I auditioned in PBB Teen Edition, underwent the screening process, experienced sleeping in the streets of ABS-CBN Compound and I was like just a step closer to being officially a housemate when my grand mom stopped me and advised me to finish schooling first.
