Cultural show generates seed fund for
CSC's sports development program

The cultural show mounted by the Catanduanes State Colleges (CSC), through the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) headed by Dr. Aida A. Dianela, and the CSC Supreme Student Council, successfully generated seed fund that is expected to support the school’s sports development program.


The cultural extravaganza aptly named “Handog” featured on the frontline the CSC’s cultural outreach arm, the Hablon Dawani, together with CSC Laboratory High School and CSC Elementary Laboratory School.

This coming November 11, another featured presentation, a dance for a cause, will be staged by the CSC students while a Dance Sports Competition among the competing units in the CSC tertiary level will be held on November 16. The winner of this contest will represent the CSC in the Region V State Colleges and Universities Athletic Association Meet (SCUAA) to be held on November 27-December 1, 2005 at CSSAC, Pili, Camarines Sur.


On the other hand, a year-end spectacle will take the center stage on December 14, 2005 as parents, faculty and staff of the CSC combine their talents for a variety show dubbed as “Christmas Frolics”.

Handog, which was initially showcased on October 3, 2005 proved to be an enthralling evening of music and dance of various genres as the CSC showcased some of its finest homegrown talents.

Dr. Asuncion V. Asetre, CSC President, in her short message before the show proper, hailed the prime movers and supporters of the activity. “More than the individual artistic expression and beyond the showcase of talents, what makes this cultural show an even more profound undertaking is its noble purpose. Truly, the spirit of magnanimity and cooperation is evident in tonight’s affair”, the CSC President said.

The CSC administration through the OSA has lined up these projects to help subsidize student welfare activities.
Other undertaking in the pipeline is the tapping of the institution’s successful roster of alumni to share their resources for the benefit of the CSC studentry.(GSR)

Waste management program implemented at CSC

Rubbish. Garbage. Trash. Left-overs. Scraps. They go by many names but one thing, they won’t be thrown wantonly elsewhere – the CSC will see to that.

Through Office Circular No. 05 series of 2005, Dr. Asuncion V. Asetre, CSC President, ordered the implementation of Systems and Procedures on Waste Management which was proposed by the Office of the Vice President for Research, Extension and Production headed by VP Minerva I. Morales. The System will look into sound disposal of the institution’s junks accumulated from the daily operation of its various units. This is also in compliance with RA 9003, the recommendation of AACCUP and the CSC’s NGO partner in environmental protection, the Tanggol Kalikasan.

Designated as Coordinator for Waste Management Program of the CSC is Engr. Jomann Socito, faculty member of the College of Agriculture and Fisheries. Engr. Socito will ensure the comprehensive observance and implementation of the Program's provisions.

The Office Order carries systematic procedures which would guarantee the thorough observance of waste management. Separate schemes have been identified for waste segregation, collection and disposal of papers and its by-products, organic materials, recyclable and factory returnable items like bottles, cans, ink cartridges and for plastics. Taking charge of this activity is the Janitorial Services, including the Supply Services and concerned units and offices of the Colleges. Labeled trash bins are strategically placed in various areas in the Colleges to this effect as well as composting areas for biodegradable materials.

The Office Circular likewise created working groups that will take charge in generating awareness, support and sustained implementation of waste management program. This is composed of the Office of the President, Office of the Director of Student Affairs, Research and Development, College of Agriculture and College of Education. Other identified lead units in this program are the Extension Services and Corporate Business Operations.

Active participation of all the offices and units of the Colleges, as well as the student body organizations, have been also enlisted. (GSR)
