SM group to build new school buildings in Laguna, Batangas


Continuing its commitment to helping elevate the country's education system, SM Foundation, Inc. (SMFI), in partnership with SM Prime Holdings, Inc. (SMPHI) and the Department of Education (DepEd), have recently collaborated to construct two new school buildings in Laguna and Batangas.

Upon the completion of the joint initiative, two two-story four-classroom school buildings will be donated to the Laguna Resettlement Community School in San Pedro City, Laguna and the San Antonio Elementary School in Sto. Tomas City, Batangas.

Each of the school buildings is set to be equipped with learning materials, armchairs, handwashing facilities, emergency equipment, and PWD-friendly facilities to ensure that students, especially from low-income communities, gain access to modern, safe, and conducive learning facilities.

Formalizing the partnership, representatives from the SMFI, DepEd, and the local government units of said provinces attended the memorandum of agreement signing last April 28, 2023, at the National Educators Academy of the Philippines (NEAP) in Malvar, Batangas.

SM Foundation, through its School Building Program, is an active partner ofDepEd in various educational programs. This social good initiative aims to promote quality public education by building classrooms nationwide. To date, it has turned over more than 100 school buildings to grassroots communities.

Visit the EU in two days as it launches its first ever exciting and dynamic Euro Village!

Want to visit the EU? Look no further, this May 2023, you will have every chance to visit the whole European Union for two days! 

On June 3-4, 2023, the Capital Commons Park, Pasig will be converted into a Euro Village. Admission is open to the public for free from 4pm to 12 midnight. 

Savour the ultimate adventure of the senses, in European style!

You can find the best novelties from Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Austria, Romania and Finland.  In solidarity with Ukraine in these dire hours, Euro Village will also feature Ukrainian participation.

Dr. Ana Isabel Sรกnchez Ruiz, Deputy Head of Delegation of the European Union to the Philippines said that “The essence of the Euro Village is to make these vibrant and diverse cultures accessible to the reach of Filipinos and to open up markets and trade opportunities."


“Culture has always been at the core of our unique diversity as Europeans. We want to share this uniqueness with the Filipinos," she said explaining that the Euro Village project is in celebration of the anniversary of the founding of the European Union on 9 May. 

From bread and rye, waffles, sausages, dairy products and beer, to special concerts and sports demonstration, the Euro Village has lovely surprises in one go.

And for those yearning to learn a European language but who have not yet had the time to try, the Euro Village cultural and language center  will bring French, German, Italian and Spanish lessons in a snap, thanks to the collaboration of Alliance Franรงaise de Manille, Goethe Institut, Instituto Cervantes Manila and the Philippine-Italian Association. 


Those who are interested on European music or would like to jam with artists, the Euro Village will have guest performers from Romania, Ukraine and a serenade from the Manila String Machine, who will be rendering European songs and pieces.

Fantastic mimes and buskers will also be available to entertain guests and participants throughout the two-day European Village festival.


To ensure that this EU’s initiative promotes a sustainable lifestyle and reduction of greenhouse emissions, the EU has engaged with Green Space, Scholars of Sustenance Philippines and EcoNest as sustainability partners.

PHINMA Education launches new unified brand for two NCR Schools


PHINMA Education, a leading education network in the Philippines, has launched a new unified brand for its NCR schools at the #GritToGlory Partners’ Launch, jumpstarting a campaign that highlights the value of courage and perseverance in the face of seemingly insurmountable challenges. 

During the brand launch held last April 26 at Light of Love Events Place, PHINMA Republican College unveiled its new name, PHINMA Saint Jude College Quezon City, alongside PHINMA Saint Jude College Manila, the original campus located in Sampaloc, Manila. 


"We are thrilled to present our PHINMA NCR schools’ unified brand in the launch of our campaign that highlights the virtue of Grit,” said Ana Chua, PHINMA Education NCR schools Chief Operating Officer. “This virtue, which is what we nurture among our students in the new PHINMA Saint Jude College Manila and PHINMA Saint Jude College Quezon City, is one that is reflected amongst our students - young people, many of whom hail from low income households, coming from all over the country and courageously staking their claim to a better life through quality education in Metro Manila.


“As we continuously expand to new markets, what remains constant is our resolve to deliver our brand of accessible, flexible, and supportive education to more of the underserved market," Chua continues. “This time, as we establish our presence in the country’s capital, we intend to serve those from humble backgrounds in this bustling, highly-competitive environment, and provide them with equal footing among their peers. That is why our battle cry is Hamon, Tapang, Tagumpay - because we believe that with grit, kasama ang PHINMA Ed, they can.”


PHINMA Saint Jude College and PHINMA Republican College are two of the nine (9) PHINMA Education schools in the Philippines, along with Horizon Education in Indonesia. PHINMA Saint Jude College was acquired in 2017 while in 2019, PHINMA Republican College became part of the network.

Vista Estates unveils its newest master planned development in Tuguegarao : NuCiti

Vista Land COO Jerylle Luz Quismundo led the toast to the successful launch of NuCiti by Vista Estates joined by Vista Estates Division Head for North Luzon, Rochelle Alpasan, Concept Development Officer Ar. Ryan Erese, MRB Project Lead Ar. Benzone, Marketing Head, Michael Reyes, and Roina Aureo. 

On April 22, 2023, Vista Land, the country’s leading integrated property developer in the country, launched its maiden estate offering in northeastern Luzon, NuCiti by Vista Estates

The event took place in Chateau Leonor Resort in Tuguegarao City and was graciously hosted by Julibelle Bulan. Entertaining the audience with contemporary production numbers was the Indak Dance Company.

Aptly entitled “Spring: Life Blooms in the New City,” the momentous occasion celebrated the season of new beginnings, growth, and renewal for the people of Tuguegarao. Spring also signifies the sweeping transformation that the city will experience with the introduction of NuCiti. 

Gracing the event was Tuguegarao City Mayor, Hon. Maila Ting Que, who also delivered a rousing speech to the audience. 

Welcoming Vista Estates into the city was no other than the honorable Mayor of Tuguegarao, Maila Ting Que. Vista Land Chief Operating Officer, Jerylle Luz Quismundo led the toast to the successful unveiling of Vista Estates newest master planned development, with Division Head for North Luzon, Rochelle Alpasan. Presenting the grand master plan of NuCiti were Ar. Ryan Erese, Vista Land’s Planning Head, Ar. Ishiel Aniรฑon, Project Team Lead, and Ar. Benzone Dechavez, MRB Planning Lead. 

Concept Development Officer, Ar. Ryan Erese, presenting the concept behind the newest estate development.

Located in Barangay Carig Sur, NuCiti is a sprawling 100-hectare expanse that draws inspiration from the animated ambience and attractions of Hollywood in California, USA. The lifescapes that will soon blossom within this estate development will recreate the look and feel of the state renowned for its vibrant streets, famous landmarks, and stunning sceneries. 

NuCiti by Vista Estates is a 100-hectare master planned development set to unlock the full potential of Tuguegarao City. Comprising six key areas of development, this microcity is designed to provide new opportunities for growth and progress.

With its vast coverage, NuCiti will be composed of six key areas of development poised to unleash the city’s full potential as an ideal location for a large-scale, well-planned microcity that will offer new prospects for growth and progress. 

The first district, affectionately named, Rosevale, will be NuCiti’s quaint, intimate, and family-oriented locale. Covering 18 hectares of NuCiti’s 100-hectare domain, Rosevale is where tinseltown allure meets tropical charm. It will be composed of a number of commercial and residential establishments cloaked with Spanish eclectic architecture, giving the estate a distinctive character.

Within the area of Rosevale will soon spring a multi-tower, mid-rise vertical residential enclave called Rosevale Towers — located just mere strides from and to any point within Rosevale. The towers will offer top-notch amenities that will make life more comfortable, convenient, and pleasurable for its residents and guests. 

Vista Estates Division Head for North Luzon, Rochelle Alpasan welcomed everyone to the launch of Vista Estates latest development in Tuguegarao City and its residential offering, Rosevale Towers.

Rosevale Towers’ facilities include a spacious clubhouse and pavilion where people can converge and celebrate significant milestones, a play park that is advantageous for families with growing kids, and a refreshing swimming pool perfect for those who want to cool down after a day of activities. With these features, Rosevale Towers is set to become a highly desirable residential address in the city of Tuguegarao. 

Vista Land is investing in these master planned developments, making good on its promise to its homebuyers and investors, to continue to create superior offerings, and deliver long-term investment growth.

How can children benefit from online games?


Online games can provide both positive and negative effects on children, depending on the type of game, amount of time spent playing, and the child's age and developmental stage. When kids are left unmonitored while playing online some of the possible harms include:

Addiction
One of the most significant negative effects of online gaming is addiction. Kids can get hooked on games, especially those that offer rewards or progress. When kids spend too much time playing, they may neglect other important activities, such as homework, physical exercise, or socializing with friends and family.

Poor academic performance
Kids who spend excessive time playing online games may experience poor academic performance. They may struggle to keep up with their studies and homework, resulting in lower grades and poor academic achievement.

It's important for parents to monitor their children's activity and set limits on the amount of time they spend gaming to ensure their safety. Parents can also educate their children on safe online practices, such as not sharing personal information with strangers, and using appropriate language and behavior when playing with others.

Money games like Cash Back and Treze Coins are examples of online video games that are beneficial to kids. These games provide a fun way for kids to learn and enhance their math skills in basic operations like addition and subtraction. Cash Back challenges players to provide accurate change to customers, while Treze Coins allows players to add coins together to deposit into a gumball machine.

Both games are easy to play and have simple instructions that kids can easily follow. Cash Back also features hints that show the change amount to help the player solve the change quickly under time pressure. Treze Coins allows players to choose their preferred language and coin denominations, making it a versatile game for kids around the world.

If used in moderation and with proper supervision, online games can be beneficial to kids.

Cognitive Development: Many online games are designed to challenge a child's cognitive abilities, such as memory, problem-solving, and critical thinking skills. Playing these games can help kids develop their cognitive skills and enhance their brain function.

Social Skills: Online games that involve multiplayer mode can help kids improve their social skills by interacting with other players. They learn to communicate, cooperate, and negotiate, which are essential skills in real-life social situations.

Hand-eye Coordination: Many online games require quick reflexes and hand-eye coordination. By playing these games, kids can improve their fine motor skills and coordination.

Stress Relief: Online games can provide a  outlet for kids to relieve stress and relax. Games that involve strategy or puzzles can help them focus on the task at hand and forget about their worries.

Learning: Some online games are designed to teach kids specific subjects, such as history, geography, and math. These games can make learning fun and engaging, encouraging kids to learn more and retain information better.

Overall, playing online games can be a fun and enjoyable experience for children as long as it's done safely and in moderation. Money games like Cash Back and Treze Coins provide a great way for kids to learn and enhance their math skills while having fun at the same time.

Parents can ensure their children's safety by monitoring their online activity and educating them on safe online practices. By doing so, parents can make sure that their children's online gaming experience is both fun and educational.
