The Student Development Unit of FEU Cavite Higher Education Department piloted the project entitled, “Farm Ecotherapy Upraising Connectivity (F.E.U.C.) on October 26, 2019”. It is a one-day dry run event intended to create an enhanced and uplifting environment that connects people to nature and agriculture through activities for the individuals’ overall wellness. FEU Cavite envisions to influence communities’ growth, inspire them to be good stewards of our environment, and instill values in preserving the nature.

Orientation at the FEU Cavite V-Farm

The said program started with preparatory activities, followed by a 10-minute Ecowalk— a contemplative walk from HED promenade going to the V-Farm (Vegetable Farm) and Modern Bahay Kubo. This activity promotes appreciating the scenery and plants surrounding the environment. Then comes the meditation part which comprise of activities like breathing exercises, stretching, listening to nature sounds, and quiet time for a calm and more focused mind and body. After the warm-up and calming exercises, a brief inspirational talk about gratefulness was delivered. Reflecting on God’s Word was also part of this activity. A Bible verse was presented and pondered on to give encouragement to everyone.

The event ended with a healthy and sumptuous Trio-V (triple vegetable) dishes, from appetizer to dessert prepared by the BS Hospitality Management students at the V-Farm Modern Bahay Kubo. Eating at the kubo, the participants can easily appreciate the dishes as they see where the ingredients came from, and how they were prepared at the kitchen.

All in all, the FEUC project was commended for its outstanding implementation of the objectives, topics discussed and their relatability to real life situations, organizers and facilitators knowledge and accommodating spirit, and the food served during the event. Students Affairs Office already had their planned projects and activities under Farm Ecotherapy. The event is proposed to be held again on the 2nd semester of SY 2020-2021.

FEU Cavite upgrades Basic Education Computer Laboratory

FEU Cavite upgrades Basic Education Computer Laboratory

FEU Cavite works toward its goal of creating “future-ready” learners by embracing technology. One way to achieve this is by ensuring that age-appropriate computer engagement is embedded in the lessons.

Last July 2019, FEU Cavite upgraded the Computer Laboratory 1 of the Basic Education Department (BED ComLab 1) with the installation of new Lenovo Desktop Computers equipped with Intel Core-i5 processor, 8GB Memory, 1TB disk capacity, and are running on Windows 10 Pro Operating system. All 36 computers in the laboratory are now faster with current applications that can be better enjoyed by our learners while enhancing their computer-related skills. Improvement in the BED ComLab 1 included the replacement of all network and power cabling and installation of new tables to match the new layout

In addition, our teachers design more appropriate activities to maximize students’ engagement alongside attaining desired learning outcomes.

As one of the many ongoing facilities development of FEU Cavite, the completion of the redesigned computer laboratory provides a more conducive, collaborative, and child-friendly learning space.

FEU Cavite improves Canteen Services

FEU Cavite improves Canteen Services

The Canteen has a big impact on a student’s life in the campus. Every student remembers with fondness that favorite sausage roll he buys at lunch or that pizza he always shares with his friends at snack time. The canteen also has that important role of caring for our students’ nutrition and well-being.
On January 3, 2019, FEU Cavite relaunched its canteen services with a new set of concessionaires offering a variety of healthy, interesting, and reasonably priced meals for our students. Papa’s Chicken House, which has been our reliable canteen concessionaire for the past nine years in both HED and BED buildings, is now joined by other food providers such as Potato Giant, La Leah Food Services, 621 Foodchow, John Gil Catering and Party Needs, and De Cel’s Catering.
One week into the relaunch, there is positive feedback from the FEU Cavite community on this initiative. “I am very pleased that the choices of food offered are healthy and varied. I also buy fresh fruits and vegetables in our canteen and make sure to include them in my meal,” expressed one senior high school faculty.

The committee tasked to head the canteen relaunch project took six months to ensure that students’ feedback were considered in inviting and selecting the new food providers. Necessary infrastructure work was undertaken during the Christmas break to ready the place in time for the January opening.
The canteen services improvement is one of the many efforts undertaken by FEU Cavite to ensure that the students enjoy their campus life and that the environment is conducive to and supportive of their learning. The 2nd phase of the canteen improvement project will begin in the summer and will include further expansion of canteen spaces and purchase of new canteen equipment, tables and chairs, among others. Canteen operations are under the management of FEU Cavite’s Facilities and Technical Services Unit and the regulation of the Office of the Student Affairs.

FEU Cavite kicks off its countdown to decade

FEU Cavite will be celebrating its 10th Founding Anniversary on January 21, 2019. On October 21, 2018, it held the TAM’s Day and launched the 100-day countdown towards its road to a decade. Various activities are lined up for the entire year, and will be revealed as the meaningful occasion nears.
 Highlight of the event: number 10 formation

The school-wide event kicked off with the convergence of the FEU Cavite Departments: Basic Education led by Directress Reyette Paunan; Senior High School led by Director Matthew Nepomuceno; and Higher Education led by Dean Marcon Espino at the Metrogate Silang Estates Rotonda. Dawned in green, gold and white shirt colors, the attendees paraded to the open field beside the Higher Education Department (HED) building passing through the “Road to Decade” arch, accompanied by powerful beats made by the FEU Drummers.

Dean Espino who is also the institution’s Executive Director welcomed the stakeholders and delighted them with FEU Cavite’s curriculum approach, facilities, learning methodologies, green surroundings and conducive learning environment. He exclaimed, “FEU Cavite being the first FEU school outside Metro Manila, is the home of the Tamaraws in the South. Our road to decade, as we celebrate this morning the FEU Cavite TAM’s Day: A Road to Decade, manifested and demonstrated what this institution has accomplished and achieved. And that is because of all of you.” Following his speech, he officially opened the 100-day countdown to FEU Cavite’s 10th founding anniversary.

The FEU Cavite community participated in various events including Zumba and fun games to match the morning sun and cool breeze of Silang, Cavite. They also watched the performances made by the Basic Education chorale group, “Himig Tamaraw” and dance group, “TAMS on the Move”, Senior High School “TAMS Dance Crew”, and Higher Education “FEUC Dance Company.

 TAMS’ Zumba Dance

TAMS’ Day brought together FEU Cavite students from all levels (preschool, grade school, junior high school, senior high school and college), their parents and teachers, employees, and alumni. According to the BS Tourism Management students, Donessa Jimenez and Eujill Buendia, it is their first time to celebrate with the Basic Education Department. “Unlike the other celebrations I experienced in FEU Cavite that felt ‘tayo tayo lang’, the TAM’s Day made me realize na malaki pala tayo. This is my first and kakaiba itong event. Nafeel mo na Tamaraw ka talaga. Hindi ka lang nasa school na nag-aaral but we are celebrating with a bigger community,” Ms. Jimenez added.

BS Tourism Management students on TRATOPS

The Tourism Management Program of the FEU Cavite (FEUC) Higher Education Department (HED) held a three-day Travel and Tourism Operations Skills (TRATOPS) Development Training on October 19 and 26, and November 9, 2018 at the HED Room 111 and Events Room. TRATOPS intended to provide hands-on training to the students and allow them to experience how things are done in the field of Tourism. Student-participants were given materials and were exposed to activities applied on real scenarios. This further provided them the platform to understand customer needs and expectations.

The BS Tourism Management Students were trained on “In-Flight Operations” by Ms. Kim Hakenson, Senior Flight Attendant of Cebu Pacific Air; “Ground Handling Operations” by Mr. Kent Ito, Passenger Service Agent, Ground Steward of Cebu Pacific Air; and “Tour Guiding Operations” by Mr. Romano Del Rosario, Operations Manager of Tuesday Tours and Travel, President of Philippine Association of Accredited Tourist Guides Lecturer Inc., and Vice-President for Luzon of Philippine Tour Guide Federation.

The trainers said one thing about the FEUC BS Tourism Management students. “They are future-ready as they are passionate about learning.” Ms. Hakenson encourages the students to allow themselves to be molded. According to her, combining all four years in college is never enough so her advice for the soon-to-be-employed is to formulate a technique to learn. She wanted them to memorize by heart so that even if they forget a word, the procedures will come out naturally. “There are so many lives and souls in their hands, and they can save them. Use it as inspiration,” she said.

Mr. Ito shared that one of the most challenging scenarios as a Customer Service Agent is to entertain a lot of irate passengers when flight schedules are delayed. He handled a trainee from FEU Cavite, Ms. Joyme Palmares, during an incident when an airplane skid the main runway during landing causing more than 20,000 passengers stranded. He was satisfied by her enthusiasm, initiative, and confidence. During the training, he said, “I am satisfied because they responded right away to my questions. They listened eagerly. No wonder why your students are like that.” TRATOPS: Group Handling Operations group photo with trainer, Mr. Kent Ito

Mr. Del Rosario is a Registered Nurse but is in love with the Tourism Industry. He said, “You’ll end up as a successful practitioner if you have realigned your educational background towards the practice you are doing because practice without foundation and related theories is nothing.” According to him, he himself underwent training, and TRATOPS is a significant activity for the students to learn the foundation by heart, and actualize the theories. He wanted them to overcome the challenge by developing the confidence in talking to people and organizing their thoughts based on standards. “For a half day lecture, they were able to do an amazing performance and execution of the challenge”, he added.TRATOPS: Tour Guiding Operations group photo with trainer, Mr. Romano Del Rosario
