History of Valentine‟s Day

December 17, 2012 was the exciting moment for the St. Anneans because it was the 13th founding anniversary of the school. In connection of our foundation celebration, our school conducted a fun day this year, which took place in the school ground. The different organizations like Red Cross Youth Council (RCY), Munting Barangay, and News Letter Club built their own booth. The RCY built their own photo booth. The tattoo booth was built by the Munting Barangay officers. The Newsletter Club also have their letter booth. Each booth were supported by our dear students. There were many great and exciting games held in fun day, such as fishing game,

pick-up sticks, limbo rook, discus throw, buzzer beater, competition worm, and shoot “em” all had been organized by the teachers. In this activity the crowd really waited for the main attraction which was the cheering competition. The cheering competition was judged by our assistant princi-

pal Mr. Julius T. Estamo. There were 10 groups who joined this competition. They presented their cheers and show. Group 2 got a perfect 10, and they were the only group that got a perfect score. Finally, overall winners for the different games were presented by the teachers. The 3rd place was the Group 5, which lead by Vienn Nicole Ocampo. The Group 3 headed by Grace Lungsod was the 2nd place. And the 1st place goes to the Group 2 with Aljen Caadiang as the leader. All students were so happy in this event. It shows the unity of everyone and how strong St. Anne Child Study Center is in its 13th year. Happy 13th founding anniversary SACSC!

Filipino’s love playing street basketball.

Every school, they have a physical games like volleyball, badminton, table tennis, but the only game that is the very famous game is basketball. For Michael Jordan,“To be successful you have to be selfish, or else you never achieve. And once you get to your highest level, then you have to be unselfish. Stay reachable. Stay in touch. Don't isolate.” Basketball is a team sport, the objective being to shoot a ball through a basket horizontally positioned to score points while following a set of rules. Usually, two teams of five players play on a marked rectangular court with a basket at each width end. Basketball is one of the world's most popular and widely viewed sports. Numerous violations are called "fouls." Disruptive physical contact (a personal foul) is penalized, and a free throw is usually awarded to an offen-

History of Valentine’s Day
By: Ayalyn Chiquilio Saint Valentine‟s Day, also known as Valentine„s Day. It is celebrated during February 14 every year. It is a day for giving candies, chocolates, gifts, flowers, love and kindness. It is celebrated in every country in the world. But, who knows its history??? Let‟s find out … It began in Rome when the emperor, Claudius II (also called Claudius the Cruel), was involved in many blood and unpopular campaigns. He was having a difficult time to get soldiers for military. He believed that men didn‟t want to join the military because they don‟t want to leave their family. That‟s why he cancelled all the marriages and engagement. The good Saint Valentine, who was a priest in Rome, in the year 269 A.D, together with his friend, Saint Marius, didn‟t follow Claudius and married young lovers secretly. When his actions were discovered, he was sentenced to be beaten to death with the clubs to put his head cut off. But while in prison, Valentine fell in love for a young girl, who is the daughter of his jailor, who visited him in prison. But before his death on the 14th of February, he wrote a letter for the girl which he signed, “FROM YOUR VALENTINE”. In 469 A.D., Pope Gelasius set aside 14th of February to honor St. Valentine.

Isa siya sa mga ordinaryong tao na nangangarap na maging milyonaryo. Isang gabi pagkatapos ni Manuel sa kanyang trabaho ay pupunta sana siya sa tayaan ng Lotto upang tumaya. “Naku! Ang laki na pala ng papremyo sa Lotto sana naman suwertehin ako” pakli ni Manuel. Nang biglang may hinimatay na matanda sa kanyang tapat, “Ale! Ale! Gising” pag-aalala ni Manuel. Agad naman nagising ang matanda, kitang kita nya sa mukha ng matanda na gutom na gutom na ito kaya naman naisipan ni Manuel na imbis na ipangtaya niya sa Lotto ay ibibigay nalang niya ang pera sa matanda. “Ale tanggapin po ninyo ito” sabi ni Manuel. “Naku! Napakabait mo sambit ng matanda, sige sa iyo na itong lampara makakatulong ito sa iyo ng malaki” tugon ng matanda. Nang pauwi na si Manuel maigi niyang tinitigan ang lampara na bigay ng matanda. Larawan galing sa http://3.bp.blogspot.com/--pbLpMz57YI/TpNJhnDkYxI/ “Paano kaya makaAAAAAAAAAHc/Ton_PiqpIwg/s1600/genie-lamp.jpg katulong ito sa akin” tanong ni Manuel sa kanyang sarili. Nang kukuskusin niya ang lampara ay laking gulat ni Manuel ng biglang umilaw at lumabas ang isang Diwata galing sa lampara. Nagulat si Manuel, hindi niya akalaing may lalabas sa lampara. “ Sino ka!? Layuan mo ako!” sigaw ni Manuel. “Huwag kang matakot Manuel, isa akong diwata mayroon akong gantimpala sa iyo dahil sa kabaitan mong taglay ipinagkaloob sa iyo ang lampara na ito. Hindi lang isang ordinaryong lampara iyan isang Mahiwagang Lampara” paliwang ng diwata. “ Kaya pala sabi ng matanda ay makakatulong daw sa akin ito sa anong paraan naman” tanong ni Manuel. “ Pagkakalooban kita ng isang kahilingan “ pakli ng diwata. “ Talaga !! Pero bakit isa lang?? hayaan mo na lang puwede bang humiling na ngayon. “ Oo pero kapag humiling ka na bawal ng bawiin” sambit ng diwata. “O’ sige ba, eto na ang aking hiling pupunta ako sa tayaan ng Lotto at kapag tinaya ko ang numero na gusto ko ay mananalo” sabik na sambit ni Manuel. Nang pagkatapos itaya ni Manuel ang numero na ito ( 1, 16, 22, 30, 29, 17 ) ay agad siyang umuwi sa kanyang bahay at sobrang saya niya. Kinabukasan nagmamadali siyang bumaba sa kanilang hagdan at binuklat ang diyaryo laking gulat niya na siya ang nanalo sa Lotto “ Milyonaryo na ako!!!” sigaw ni Manuel na napatalon pa sa tuwa. pagkatapos nilang mahanap ang tiket ay kaagad na umalis ang mag-asawa upang kuhanin ang kanilang premyo. “ Ms. saan ba dito kinukuha ang premyo sa Lotto” sambit ni Manuel. “

Bakit po sir kayo po ba ang nanalo?” tanong ng kahera. “ Oo eto ang aking tiket kahapon ako si Manuel Velarde “ tugon ni Manuel. “ Doon po sa babae na iyon sa susunod na kounter siya pumunta siya napo ang bahala sa inyo” sagot ng kahera. At nagtungo na si Manuel sa babaeng tinutukoy ng kahera. “ Magandang araw po Ma’m ako po ang nanalo sa Lotto kahapon ako po si Manuel Velarde eto po ang aking tiket kahapon” sabik na tugon ni Manuel sa babae. “ Sige po sir maupo na muna kayo at aasikasuhin ko po ang inyong mga papeles na kakailanganin para makuha po ninyo ang inyong napanalunan” tugon ng kausap ni Manuel. Pagkatapos ng mahabang pag-uusap ni Manuel sa manager ay ibinigay na ang pera sa kanila at sinamahan siya nito kung paano ilagay sa bangko ang kanilang napanalunang pera. At sa kalaunan ito ang tumulong sa kanila para makabili ng bahay, sasakyan at mga gadgets at iba pang mga pangunahing pangangailangan nila sa kanilang magiging bagong pamumuhay. At dumating ang araw ng kanilang pagtira sa bagong bahay na kanilang nabili at nakabili rin sila ng isang malaking puwesto sa isang mall na puwedeng pagtayuan ng restawran at isang restawran pa sa Maynila at nagkaroon din sila ng pagawaan ng bag sa gawing Bataan. Ilang buwan lang ang lumipas ay nag iba na si Manuel sa kanyang pag-uugali naging maramot, sakim, makasarili at halos sambahin na niya ang kanyang pera at nawala na ang dating saya ng kanilang pamilya na halos dina niya nakikita ang kanyang mag-anak. Nalulong siya sa iba’tibang bisyo kasama na ang pambabae at isang araw ay nakita siya ng kanyang asawa na iyon ang naging dahilan ng kanilang matinding pag-aaway. Naging malamig na sa isa’t isa ang mag-asawa at sa kalaunan ay nagpasya na silang maghiwalay dahil sa tindi ng lulong sa bisyo si Manuel at nakalimutan na niya ang kanyang pamilya. Naiwan kay Manuel ang 3 niyang anak at ang panganay ay sumama sa kanyang asawa Naging sunod-sunod na ang kalbaryo ni Manuel sa buhay, bumagsak ang kanyang negosyo at nalugi ang iba pa. Ngunit hindi pa rin sumuko si Manuel sa mga pagsubok na ito. Ang hindi niya alam mayroon pang nakaabang na mas masaklap na pagsubok. Isang gabi maagang umuwi ng bahay si Manuel galing sa kanyang negosyo. Naghahapunan siya ng mga oras na iyon ng kanyang hanapin ang kanyang mga anak, “ Manang!! Manang!!” sigaw ni Manuel, “ Sir bakit po?” sagot ni Manang kay Manuel. “ Nasaan ba sila Gwendolyn, Glenn at Michael? “ tanong ni Manuel. “ Wala pa nga po sir kanina ko pa sila inaantay at hangngang ngayon ay di pa umuuwi ang mga batang iyon nag-aalala nga po ako sir” tugon ni Manang, “ Aba! gabi na bakit wala pa ang mga batang iyon diba tumawag man lang na gagabihin sila at may pupuntahan ” tanong ni Manuel. Nagulat sila ng makita na binabalita sa telebisyon na ang kanyang tatlong anak ang tinutukoy na nakidnap daw ng mga rebelde sa Maynila. Imbes na dumeretso sa pulis ay tumungo si Manuel sa kanyang silid at dali daling kinuha ang mahiwagang lampara, kinuskos niya ito sa lahat ng kanyang makakaya. “Diwata! Diwata! Diwata!! Lumabas ka!!” sigaw ni Manuel at lumabas na ang diwata. “Bakit Manuel nagsisisi ka naba?” pakli ng diwata. “Oo di bamakapangyarihan ka ibalik mo na ako sa dati kong buhay kung ano ang mayroon ako noon bago ako manalo sa Lotto, ayoko na ng ganitong buhay. Bakit di mo sinabi na may kaakibat na panganib ang aking hiling pagdating ng araw.” Halos umiiyak na si Manuel. “Oo makapangyarihan nga ako ngunit pumayag ka sa ating kasunduan na bawal bawiin ano man ang iyong hilingin. Kaya lang naman nangyari sa iyo ang mga ito dahil inabuso mo ang tulong na ibinigay ng mahiwagang Lampara” pakli ng diwata. “Parang awa mo na handa ko isuko lahat ng aking pera kapalit ng dating buhay ko na simple at sama sama kaming buong mag-anak na masaya.” pagmamakaawa ni Manuel. “ O sige dahil nakikita ko naman na seryoso ka sa sarili mo at totoo lahat ang sinasabi mo! Ibabalik ko na ang dati mong buhay bago pa tayo nagkakilala.” tugon ng Diwata. At pinaikot ng Diwata ang kanyang mahiwagang kahoy at gaya ng pinag-usapan nila ni Manuel na ibalik ang dati niyang buhay. At napagisip isip ni Manuel na walang katumbas ang makasama ang iyong pamilya kahit sa anong bagay pa dito sa mundo . Kahit na mamatay sila na mahirap pa din ang kanilang buhay basta masayang magkakasama silang buong mag-anak at walang problema sa ano mang

Paano kaya kung ang bulkan ay sumabog? Sumabog na kasing baho ng laway ng Bulldog Nakakita ka na ba ng taong nasusunog? Tapos mamaya ikaw na ang susunod

Ang tulang ito ay isa lamang kalokoNakakain ka na ba ng isang libong han tinapay? Gawa lamang „yan ng malikot kong Tinapay na nanggaling sa singit ng isipan isang pilay Baliw man ang tingin mo sa ang Nakakain ka na ba ng isang butil ng aking isipan palay? Malupet naman akong gumawa ng Palay na itinanim sa simentadong taludturan bahay Mabait si Lolo at Lola ni Vernice Andres Sa aming tahanan ay may lolo at lola ako Mabait, masipag at mahusay magkwento Kaya dapat sila ay mahal ng husto Upang makamtan nila ligayang bigay-todo Kung nagbigay ka ng kasiyahang bigay-todo Sasaya rin pati buong mundo At kapag dumating na ang katandaan mo Ganoon din ang kasiyahang isusukli sa‟yo

“Kung nagbigay ka ng kasiyahang bigay-todo Sasaya rin pati buong mundo”

Kung mayroong lolo at lola sa bawat tahanan Ang lahat ng bata ay may kasiyahan Sa mga gawain sila‟y tutulungan At saka sa gabi‟y sila‟y kukwentuhan Kung sa bawat bahay ay mayroong lolo at lola Lahat ay malinis, Lahat ay masaya Ang kanilang ugali ay kaaya-aya At ang kabaitan ay walang kagaya

“Dalangin ko sa may kapal Na gabayan ang bansa kong mahal”

Munting Panagrap Ni Vienn Nicole Ocampo
Ako man ay munting paslit Mayroon akong pangarap namasambit, Munting pangarap sa aking buhay, Na gustong matupad sa habang buhay. Sana‟y magkaisa ang mahal kong Bayan, Sa Luzon, Visayas o Mindanao man, Kahit Buhay pa man ang kailangang ilaan, Isasakripisyo dahil sa aking dakilang pagmamahal. Sana kahit ilang bagyo man ang madaanan, Mamayani pa rin ang damayan, Kahit giyera na ang maka-laban, Manguna pa rin ang pagmamahalan.

Sana kahit ilang siglo man ang magdaan Ang wikang atin ay huwag malimutan. Wikang banyaga ay hindi dapat isaalang-alang Walang ibang magmamahal sa ating wika kundi tayo lamang Sana‟y manatili ang kulturang mayaman, Di dapat limutin ang pagrespeto sa katandaan Isa lamang gawain iyan na dapat isa-katuparan. Ang kulturang ito‟y dapat namahalin at alagaan. Daangin ko sa may kapal na gabayan ang bansa kong mahal Sana‟y matupad ang aking munting pangarap Para sa lahi ko‟t bayang mahal
