Superheroes of the Titans: Theme of 2014 Father’s Day

Springdale Titans successfully celebrated its annual Father’s Day last March 2, 2014 at Springdale ground organized and hosted by the Grade 3 batch with the theme “Superheroes of the Titans”.

It was a day of honoring all Springdale’s dads in their significant role as fathers befitted to be called as the Superheroes of the Titans. The annual family day was composed of series of activities like field demonstrations, airsoft tournament, dog show, parlor games, talent shows, band presentation and sports games amused both the parents and sons.

Springdale continues Bonbon outreach

To extend community service to an adopted school, Springdale juniors and seniors taught English and Math and helped in improving facilities in Bonbon Elementary School last February 18-21, 2014 and March 10-14, 2014 respectively.

Headed by their respective class chairman, this year’s Work Camp is geared towards converting the adopted school’s garden into a concrete basketball court for PE classes and social events.

“We worked for a whole week. We all faced challenges that got the best of us, but it was all worth it,” says Julian Cobonpue, III-year class chairman.

Through the helpful proposal from a former Springdale employee Mr. Rogel Tura, the school adopted Bonbon Elementary School as a recipient of its annual Work Camp which is an avenue for students to help in various projects and services for the improvement of its adopted school.

“The students and faculty are very grateful for PAREF Springdale’s support throughout the years,” affirms Ms. Claudia Cabriana, the adopted school’s Master Teacher and Guidance Counselor.

Below is the timeline of projects since 2008 until present:


            2008-2009       giving of monobloc chairs and computer tables

            2009-2010       painting of classrooms

            2010-2011       making of school garden (rice terraces)

            2011-2012       building of school fences

            2012-2013       painting of computer laboratory

            2013-2014       cementing of the basketball court

Springdale continues to invite everyone to participate in outreach programs as it continues to fulfill its oath “…to serve others especially the needy.”

Titans won the 2013 Milo Little Olympics Football National Finals

Springdale Titans Secondary Football Team with Coach Mario Ceniza

TEAM Visayas swept the elementary and high school football fans in impressive fashion, routing their foes in the final day of the Milo Little Olympics National finals.

The elementary team, represented by the Don Bosco Technological Center of coach Joselito Bono, scored a third straight shutout with a 6-0 win over Mindanao to finish the tournament with nine points, five points clear of second placer Mindanao.

On the other hand, Coach Mario Ceniz and the Paref Springdale Titans capped the affair with an 8-0 rout over Mindanao to win the high school title on goal difference.

Visayas and NCR finished with seven points on two wins and a draw, but the rout over Mindanao gave the home boys a seven-goal cushion over NCR, which beat Luzon, 1-0, yesterday morning.

Meanwhile, it was the third straight title for Don Bosco and they did it in dominant fashion, routing Luzon, 14-0, in their first game and blanking NCR, 5-0 next. So dominant were the Bosconians that their goalkeeper Renz Murillo didn’t even get to touch the ball in the first day.

“It was only against Mindanao that he got to touch the ball,” Bono said.

Against Luzon, Christian Agot and Jascha Tabar took turns in menacing the defense and after 59 minutes, both had five goals to their names, with Agot completing a hat trick in the first 20 minutes. ARcangelo Manlosa also scored twice, while Dustin Ramirez and Jay Ian Alinsugay had one each.

Against NCR, Ramirez, Tabar, Agot and Vinz Ybañez had Visayas up 4-0 in just 20 minutes, while against Mindanao, Don Bosco had a relatively slow day. Ramirez scored twice inside 18 minutes to make it 2-0 before Luis Colina had two more and Agot and Tabar added one each in the second half to seal their win.

On target

Aside from the prolific scorers, the other members of the team are Antonio ALforque, Rey Bryan Cruz, Dale dela Cruz, Carlos Orale, Petrovic Pacifico, Luis Buyco and Januar Villarin.

In the secondary division, Springdale knew it had to win by at least two goals to overtake rivals NCR, which beat Luzon earlier, 1-0. And Mario Lorenzo Ceniza, Pericles Dakay Jr., Ryan James Haosen and Luis Alvarez immediately went to work, keeping Mindanao’s keeper Francis Salvo busy.

However, it was Mindanao that got the first real chance but Philippe Palamine’s striker from 10 yards was denied by a foot save by Conner Hines. In the 20th, Visayas finally got on board, Ceniza unleashed a shot from outside the box that Salvo failed to collect, leaving Haosen a simple tap-in to an open goal.

Six minutes later, Ceniza lovely through ball found an open Haosen but he shot high and a minute later, the wily midfielder didn’t take any more chances, taking a wicked shot from 25 yards for the second goal.

So powerful was the shot that Salva was able to tap it with both hands but it still went in. The keeper then signaled his coach to have him replaced. In the 32nd, Dakay, who scored the equalizer against NCR, made it 3-0 with another shot from outside the box.

Things got worse for Mindanao in the second half with Mark Nacional scoring a hat trick, Dakay adding another and substitute Dominic Canas hitting one for the final count.

The other members of the team are James Balao, Julius Caliva, Maverick Jacalan, Xavier Miguel Larrauri, Jose Lipardo, Sabin Veloso, Jon Young and sub keeper Domycko Villacin, who got in in the final minutes of the game against Mindanao.

PAREF organizes 1st national congress

MANILA, Philippines – At the close of the 35th year celebration of the Parents For Education Foundation (PAREF) last August 2012, DepEd Secretary Armin Luistro mentioned in his keynote address that, “among the different models that try to put in place what is enshrined in our Constitution, I cannot think of any other model except the PAREF Foundation — where parents take on a very definite role, engages teachers and educators and institutionalizes this model of how parents and teachers can work together so they are a part of the curriculum, the community, and the environment that the school will be and what they intend their children and their graduates after they finished.”

As a response to the invitation of the DepEd Secretary “to ensure that the rest of the schools in the Philippines can learn from your model…how parents can actually be fully engaged and how they can implement what is enshrined in our constitution that the parents are the primary agents of education for their children,” PAREF is organizing the First National Congress on Home and School Collaboration entitled “Together to Get There.” This will be held on Jan. 25, 2014 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at SMX Convention Center Taguig, SM Aura Premiere, Taguig City.

Dr. Andrew Mullins will be the event speaker. In his position as headmaster of Wollemi College in Sydney, Australia, he has involved parents in the process of developing values in young people. He is the author of Parenting for Character. He has done his doctoral thesis on the neural bases of virtue. He was formerly the headmaster of Redfield College in New South Wales, Australia.

Elements of the finest schools in a school run by parents

MANILA, Philippines – While teachers take the place of parents in thousands of schools all over the country, none offer the kind of pedagogy that schools under the Parents for Education Foundation (PAREF) possess. These are schools run by no other than the parents themselves. With a firm resolve, they formed PAREF in 1976, a non-stock, non-profit corporation, whose main objective is to put up schools and to provide parents the means to promote the world-class education they dreamed for their children.

Dreaming of leaders who can bring about social transformation, PAREF focuses its efforts on building men and women of character.

“Members of the alumni,” reported Ralph Guzman of PAREF-Southridge School, “are just about always bumping into co-alumni at the University of the Philippines, the Ateneo de Manila University, De La Salle University, University of Asia and the Pacific, and the University of Santo Tomas.” Indeed PAREF students continue to enter Ivy League schools such as Harvard, Brown, Yale, and Stanford, even earning Latin honors of summa cum laude, magna cum laude, and cum laude. Within its 35 years, the system has produced at least ten summa cum laudes, six of them in American universities. Thus, the University of the Philippines and some DepEd officials have informed PAREF that its student results show that it is one of the top school systems in the country.

For PAREF, its strongest tool for facilitating personal excellence is one-on-one mentoring. Each child is assigned to one mentor, a member of the school personnel, who chats on a periodic basis with the student personally to understand his or her personality, behavior and potential. Inspired by the ideas of a modern saint and Catholic educator, Josemaria Escriva, PAREF is the first organization in the Philippines to practice this type of active partnership between parents and teachers.               

Building on this key strength, PAREF has developed its home-school collaboration system through the years. The latest addition is the incorporation of Harvard-Business-School-style case studies in its New Parents Education Program (NPEP), developed together with Educhild Foundation.

The faculty is considered the heart of the school. Thus, PAREF ensures that its teachers are fit for the purpose of being parent partners outside the home.

PAREF has successfully realized its mission and vision by putting up 7 single-sex schools all over the country: Southridge, Woodrose, Rosehill, Northfield, Springdale, Southcrest and Westbridge. The PAREF Preschools, Inc. (PPSI), meanwhile, is composed of Rosemont, Ridgefield, Rosefield, Ridgefield Iloilo and Rosehill Preschool.

For parents who aspire to play a proactive role in the education of their children and desire for them to grow up living the values of the Catholic Faith, PAREF will be more than happy to welcome them as part of their community. Parents can visit any of its schools all over the country or call (02) 6314292, 7810220, 6311695 or 6877104 or send an email to centraloffice@paref.org. Parents can also visit www.paref.org or drop by the PAREF Office at Units 107-109 Cedar Mansion II, No. 7 Escriva Drive, San Antonio Village, Pasig City.
