MCL organizes 6th Summer Camp

In preparation for Senior High School, incoming Grade 11 students took up tutorial classes in English, Math, and Science as part of the MCL Summer Camp 2017.

A total of 240 incoming Grade 11 students experienced life at Malayan Colleges Laguna (MCL) through the MCL Summer Camp 2017 last May 8-12.

On the first day, the attendees went through an orientation where they received firsthand information from the Supreme Student Council (SSC) President-elect Andrew R. De Jesus, followed by the Senior High School (SHS) Student Council President Reginald A. Lunar and MCL-Learning Environments and Innovations (LEI) Director Prof. Abigail Joy Rodelas-Angelia.

MCL-Learning Environments and Innovations (LEI) Director Prof. Abigail Joy Rodelas-Angelia introducing Blackboard Lean (BBL) to the participants during the orientation.

Andrew greeted the attendees with opening remarks, giving them attitude-related “survival tips” in MCL. “Number one, be yourself. Here in MCL, you don’t need to portray a fake image just to fit in because everybody fits in just right. Number two, be approachable. Always smile. Number three, be positive. Remove all the negative vibes in you and enjoy being a student kasi minsan lang ito.”

“MCL is a fun environment. It will teach you a lot of lessons, both in academics and in life,” he continues.

Students took part in a cheering competition on the last day, further fostering camaraderie among themselves.

Reginald shared an overview of the Summer Camp, and how it can also develop one’s leadership skills. He even encouraged the participants “to take part in this community and to accept the challenge of leading it.”

Then, Prof. Angelia introduced Blackboard Learn (BBL), the learning management system (LMS) that MCL students use to easily access their course resources and assessments.

The participants proceeded to tour the campus afterward.

On days 2-4, they attended tutorial classes in English, Math, and Science, all aimed to give them an edge as they enter a higher level of education.

“The Camp was super fun! I got to meet new friends from different strands and bond with them. It was also great to experience beforehand how it felt like to be an MCL student to avoid culture shock, which really helped me since this is my first time to attend to a different school,” Feliz Gracielle Paran, one of the attendees, shared her Summer Camp experience.

Fun group games and a cheering competition were held on the last day of the Camp to further develop camaraderie among the students.
