Apart from the participants’ jaw-dropping moves and heart-thumping stunts, the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP) Cheerdance Competition is also about bringing the teams’ stunning beauties to the center stage.

The University of the East (UE), through its Office of Cultural Affairs (UE OCA), will hold cultural presentations throughout September in connection with UE’s 67th foundation anniversary.

When I was a child, there used to be a Kindergarten A and B in my school. You had to go through it before you could step into Grade I. It is notable that the public school system has belatedly found the necessity to add that to their curriculum. In St. Theresa’s College, if the teacher thought a pupil bright, you were allowed to “skip” or “jump” Grade I and go straight to Grade II, as I was.
