The world is becoming flatter, as they say. This is because the internet and digital technology have paved the way for faster and more collaborative interaction among nations and peoples. As the number of students in schools interact digitally, in content, with one another, and communities, the digital citizenship becomes more and more important to take into consideration.
SMC students win in APSAM Academic Race 2019
SMC students have proven once again their exemplary performance in academics. The standards of our curriculum remained a strong force in making our students proficient in all subject areas.
The Junior High School team of Abdul Wahab Naina (Grade 9 Integrity), Jaqueline Palo (Grade 10 Resilience), and Andrea Li Santos (Grade 10 Resilience) emerged as this year’s Second Runner-up amongst 22 teams from different private schools of Muntinlupa. They performed extraordinarily well from the eliminations up until the finals by getting high scores in Math, Science, and Social Studies.
The APSAM Academic Race aims to promote excellence in Science, Math, Communication Arts (English and Filipino), and Social Studies (HEKASI and Araling Panlipunan) and uplift the academic standing of private schools in Muntinlupa in the National Achievement Test (NAT) and the National Career Assessment Examination (NCAE). The activity also serves as venue for awareness as regards developments in the fields of Science, Mathematics, Communication Arts and Social Studies.
The 2019 APSAM Academic Race, which was participated in by Junior high School students was held last October 08, 2019 at the Muntinlupa Sports Complex West Wing.
