Four of our students from grades 3 to 6 were selected and represented the school in the said competition together with Mrs. Kathrina Odtohan, the Academic Coordinator for Intermediate Level. They were Rheann Daphne F. Marasigan (3-Truthful), Mary Janiyah Kate Z. Aguto (4-Alert), Ma. Erin Paz T. Celestial (5-Reflective) and Marianne Elise M. Gonzales (6-Responsible).
