Roxas City (14 September) -- The Colegio dela Purisima Concepcion (CPC) thru its School of Arts and Sciences (SAS) conducted a Media Forum at as part of the SAS Days celebration from September 13 to 15 this year.
The activity was organized by the school's Mass Communication Society to give students-would-be media practitioners insights on how to become successful mediamen in the future.
"I'm impressed that the Mass Com Society is able to conduct this activity," said CPC-SAS Dean Dr. Primitiva B. Alovera.
She also added that the course offerings in the SAS are quality programs citing its level II accreditation with the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU). PAASCU is a service organization which accredits academic programs which meet commonly accepted standards of quality education.
The forum was graced by dyVR – Roxas Program Director Martin Roxas, Bombo Radyo – Roxas Station Manager Cyril Simpas, and Philippine Information Agency (PIA) Provincial Information Manager Jaime S. Cabag, Jr.
Last July, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has awarded CPC's Bachelor of Science in Accountancy graduate Roma Padua as one of the 2007 Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines (TOSP) winners.
CPC is a Catholic School of the Archdiocese of Capiz which aims to provide academic excellence for its students in various fields of endeavor.
The school's mission is in line with the government's firm commitment to provide quality education through generous funding for better schools, higher teacher pay, more scholarships for gifted students, and better English language training.
"A sound education is the only legacy the state is obligated by law to give every citizen and it is the best inheritance we can leave to the children -- something that cannot be taken from them," said a Malacañang statement on education. (PIA) [top]
