Saint Francis of Assisi College –Alabang celebrated the 2019 Nutrition Month last July with the theme: “Kumain nang wasto at maging aktibo… push natin ‘to!” with various nutrition-related activities such as: Nutri-Quiz Bee, Salad Making Contest for Grade 4 up to High School level students, Parent-Child Poster Making Contest and Color Me Best for primary students, and Slogan Making Contest and Poster Making Contest for the intermediate and high school students.
To start the month-long celebration, the elimination for Nutri-Quiz Bee was held last July 9, 2019 with all the students from Kinder to Grade 12 level as participants. The final round for the said quiz bee happened last July 25, 2019.
July 26, 2019 marked the day when the Franciscan community held the Salad Making Contest to test the students’ abilities and skills in making variations of their own salads. The intermediate level winners were from the fourth grade; the high school (Grade 7-9 Category) winners were from the ninth grade; and the high school (Grade 10-12 Category) winners were from the eleventh grade.
The Parent-Child Poster Making Contest and the Poster and Slogan Making Contests last July 31, 2019, exhibited the abilties and skills of the students in making their own illustrations and interpretations of the Nutrition Month’s theme.
The celebration, indeed, was an artistic, imaginative and nutritious approach toward healthy living as Franciscans.
