RCI Rodriguez celebrates Nutrition Month

By: Sebastian S. Garcia

On  July 28, 2016, Roosevelt College Rodriguez celebrated the annual Nutrition Month Celebration. With the theme “First 1000 Days ni Baby Pahalagahan para sa Malusog na Kinabukasan,” the TLE and ICT Department merged and created once again a successful event.

On the first day of the week-long  celebration, right after the assembly, the students showed how graceful they were in  Zumba. Selected students from each grade level demonstrated their unique dance steps and moves. The teachers, the staff, the students, and even the school directress,  Carmencita V. Alcantara, joined the Physical Fitness Program that aimed to emphasize the importance of having a physically fit body.

On the following days, Entrepreneurship, another activity prepared by the TLE and ICT Department, was done by each grade level. The students transformed themselves into salesmen and saleswomen as they sold their homemade products around the school.

On Thursday, July 28, loud cheers were heard and huge banners were seen around the school quadrangle as the students gave their support to their classmates competing in the annual Nutri-Jingle Contest. Each group gave their best shot and showed both the audience and the judges that they deserved to win.
