Grade Six, Here I Come!

On March 20, we went to Layforce Chapel at Guadalupe Makati where I was joining our moving up ceremony. This means I am moving up from Grade 5 to Grade 6. My classmates were also there. Their names are Paul Cadiz, Nathan De Guzman, Fil Santos, and Sophie Silao.

We participated during the Holy Mass before receiving our certificates and medals. After that, the teachers called our names to receive our academic certificates and character award medals before taking a picture with our Catholic Filipino Academy founder Bro. Bo Sanchez. My classmates and I are so happy that we are moving up to Grade 6.

And by the way, my academic award is Mathematics. My favorite lesson is about Integers and Geometry. And my character award is Generosity because I always visit the poor and needy children at Grace to be Born and other orphanages to share my so many blessings and God's love to them.

We are also inspired again by Bro.Bo Sanchez inspirational talk for us that we can be the best and amazing in the future.

Thank you Reverent Fr. Eric Castro for celebrating the Holy Mass on this special day for us all CFA students.

Vow Kami sa Davao

On March 16, we went to Davao for a vacation and to meet new friends. We rode an airplane to Davao. Then, we went to Crown Regency. We stayed there for 3 days. Next was the Davao Museum. It’s full of history there like bahay kubo, national heroes and pictures made of fruits. Then, we met Tita Chang-Chang, Tito Ryan, Ate Rain and RL. They invited us to go to the mall and ate there. 

The next day we went to Samal Island by taking the boat with our friends. We swam at the beach and even ate there. And there was a funny acrobatic show at Paradise Island Resort. Next, we went to People’s Park with so many statues. Lastly, we went to SM mall and watch the fountain light show. 

On our last day, we went to the Bone Museum. It is full of extinct animal bones like Megalodon. There are many land and water animals too. Lastly, we visited a Davao church and prayed there for our safe trip back to manila and to bless mommy’s birthday.

Solar Energy 101

To make the solar house, we prepared the following materials- soap boxes, glue, glue gun, Lego parts, white paint spray, battery and the solar panel.

Step 1: Glue the soap boxes.
Step 2: spray it with white paint.

Step 3: connect all parts for the solar panel system.
Step 4: assemble and fit my Lego parts inside.

During daytime, sunlight is changed to electricity by the solar panel and stored electricity from the battery. During nighttime, the stored electricity from the battery powers the house’s appliances’ like light, TV, air conditioner and electric fan. On daytime, the cycle is repeated.

Solar is a good for the environment because it does not use fossil fuel, does not produce pollution and the sunlight is always free.
