5th LINIS-ESKWELA SUCCESSFULLY HELD

The annual LINIS ESKWELA of NEU PAMPANGA was again successfully held on June 9, 2017, from  8 AM to 2 PM, three (3) days prior to the opening of classes for the SY 2017-2018.

What makes this campus clean up activity special and has become a traditional part of NEU Pampanga’s preparation for the onset of another school year is that other active stakeholders of the school partake like the PTCA officers & SCAN members. For the second year in a row ministers’ wives numbering about 30 did their part in the activity led by Sis. Brenda Ubaldo – wife of Bro. Bedan Ubaldo (Dist. Minister – Pampanga West). Their group beefed up the involvement of 14 NEU Pampanga-based ministers’ wives. A total of 96 participants majority coming from the workforce of the NEU Pampanga Branch joined this year’s LINIS ESKWELA 2017 which is now in its 5th year since it was started to be held back in June of 2013.

The lead department for the campus clean-up drive is the Building Administration department lead by Bro. Elmer Mujar. He laid down the campus map and explained the deployment of participants grouped into eight (8) teams enough to cover the 6-hectare campus grounds. Each area assignment has a Minister overseer and paired with a couple of Support personnel. Everyone responded to the instruction to bring their respective cleaning materials and tools needed for their work.

Before the teams finally proceeded to their area assignments, the Branch Director Dr. Alberto R. Domingo, Jr. emphasized the “Safety First” principle before everyone buckled down to work. He then issued the instruction that by 11:15 AM everyone must ceased in their clean up tasks and return back to the covered court for the sumptuous boodle fight style lunch prepared by the branch administration for everyone. Every participant enjoyed the exciting and delicious meal as could be gleaned in the pictures taken during the activities.

The activity not only achieved its primal intent to prepare the campus grounds and school facilities for the returning pupils and students this coming Tuesday-June 13 as the 1st school day of SY 2017-18, but also promoted camaraderie among school personnel and above all edified each other as we fulfilled the love of brotherhood that should exist between workers in the University. ALL FOR THE GREATER GLORY OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.

 

 

NEU-RONDALLA SERENADES KAPAMPANGAN ERANS

By: Charlene F. Del Rosario

The 2nd day of June 2017, marked another monumental success for the NEU Center for Culture and the Arts (NEU CCA) as the visiting NEU-Rondalla held their 2nd Outreach Concert activity at NEU-Pampanga Branch. The whole-day affair provided inspiration for the young aspirants and future Rondalla members of the host NEU branch to hone their skills more in the playing of stringed instruments. Supportive parents of the mostly elementary pupils of NEU Pampanga saw how their kids enjoyed the various activities held. Everyone is entertained and felt elated.

The NCCA Rondalla Outreach Concert was led by 45 Elementary pupils from the Main Campus who were accompanied by their Minister-Overseer, Bro. Mar Villaflor, their trainor, Bro. Lino Mangandi, and three other faculty members and staff. Also included in the entourage of the visitors are approximately 15 parents, mostly Ministers’ wives from the Main Campus, who supported their kids in their performances during their concerts last time in NEU Lipa City Branch, and now at NEU-Pampanga.

The NEU Pampanga branch, on the other hand, was represented by 50 students from the Elementary and High School departments. They were also assisted by their parents and faculty-advisers.

Right after the opening program, the Kapampangan Erans were given time to practice for their participation in the concert which was held later in the afternoon. The trainors and the Rondalla members worked hand-in-hand in teaching their Kapampangan counterparts the basics of using the various stringed instruments.

One of the highlights of the said occasion was the formal turn-over of thirty (30) guitars and three (3) other musical instruments for the use of the NEU-Pampanga Rondalla group to be trained by Tr. Lulu Calaguas who also handles the Drum and Lyre Band of the branch. She will be assisted by Teachers Tenny I. Borja and Monette P. David in the training activities.
