Competing with the brave heart of a Tamaraw, the Simbuhan Senior High School Publication delegates showed excellence in journalism as they bagged awards in the 2017 Division of Cavite Province Association of Private School Principals & Administrators, Inc. (DCPAPSPA) journalism workshop-competition held on July 5-7 at Colegio de Sta. Rosa, Trece Martires City, Cavite.
Despite limited training time, the student journalists were able to position FEU Cavite on among the top participants from the 68 participating private schools from the entire Division of Cavite. Furthermore, the three-day seminar-competition, which gathered a total of 1,599 students, is annually conducted by the DCPAPSA to serve as a preliminary workshop for delegates to join the Division Schools Press Conference (DSPC).
With the guidance and support of Simbuhan-SHS Advisers, Ms. Aumi Manansala and Ms. Niezel Buso, the representatives took a place on several categories for the competition. Ronald Gica came in 3rd place in Editorial Cartooning -Filipino, followed by Carl Nicolas Morfe, 3rd place in the News Writing-English.
