STI re­cently cel­e­brated its 34th an­niver­sary and marked its three decades by holding var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties at the Ro­tunda, Limketkai Cen­ter last Septem­ber 8, 2017.

Fri­day’s event fea­tured STI’s Tal­ent Search 2017-Re­gional Cluster Com­pe­ti­tion which show­cased STI’ers skills in terms of singing, danc­ing, and com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills.

Par­tic­i­pants of the var­i­ous events--Bat­tle of the Bands Com­pe­ti­tion, STI Singing idol, Hataw Sayaw and Mr and Ms. STI 2017-came from dif­fer­ent STI branches which in­cludes STI-Surigao, STI-Va­len­cia, STI-Malay­balay, STI-Ili­gan, STI-Pa­ga­dian, STI-Dipolog and STI-Ca­gayan de Oro.

STI Ca­gayan de Oro was the host school of the ac­tiv­i­ties and the events were spear­headed by STI-CDO Deputy School Ad­min­is­tra­tor Mario Mal­fer­rari.

“Ac­tu­ally mura siya og an­nual show­case diri sa atung mga tal­ents sa atong mga es­tudyante so ba­si­cally part ni siya sa atung stu­dent de­vel­op­ment na pro­gram dili lang in­gon na sa class­room lang apil sad ilang mga tal­ents mga skills sa singing, danc­ing para ma ex­pose sad siya, ma de­velop pod kana na part sa ila,” Mal­fer­rari said.

“Nag start ni school level, win­ners na na ba­si­cally kay of course bawal sad sa atu-a na mag pick ta kay of course ma de­feat ang pur­pose sa stu­dent de­vel­op­ment”, Mal­fer­rari said.

Ac­cord­ing to Mal­fer­rari, the main pur­pose for holding the com­pe­ti­tions is to fos­ter stu­dent de­vel­op­ment-- to make sure that the stu­dents de­velop their other skills and tal­ents, not just fo­cus on aca­demic de­vel­op­ment.

“Since we’re try­ing to de­velop other tal­ents, the skills of our stu­dents we also make sure the 4 C’s which in­cludes there crit­i­cal think­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion skills, the char­ac­ter and the change depth all em­bed­ded to our stu­dents’’, Mal­fer­rari said.

“Its not just about the com­pe­ti­tion or show­case, we make sure that naa sad sila natun-an like sports­man­ship, ac­cep­tance whether win­ner or loser diba so dili siya in­gon na basta-basta lang, we make sure na there’s val­ues makuha sa stu­dents’’, he added.
