by Charissa Uy
On April 11, 2023, the Adventist University of the Philippines (AUP) hosted the first-ever Festival of Talents for Adventist secondary schools within the North Philippine Union Conference (NPUC) territory.
Baesa Adventist Academy (BAA), Banahaw View Academy (BVA), Concepcion Adventist Academy (CAA), Central Luzon Adventist Academy (CLAA), Lipa Adventist Academy (LAA), Manila Adventist College (MAC) Senior High School, and Pasay City Academy (PCA) were among the eight Adventist academies that participated in this historic event.
Officially launched by Dr. Mary Jane Zabat, the NPUC director of the Education Department this one-day event provided an opportunity for Adventist academies to highlight their God-given skills through a variety of events including a choral festival, a quiz bee, ball games (basketball and volleyball), and extemporaneous speeches.
The event, which is based on Adventist Education values, strives to solidify ties and form fresh connections centered on Christ. “Not that you compete with the best that you have, but you come together to be one— one big brothers and sisters.” Dr. Zabat remarked.
The AUP President, Dr. Arceli Rosario, graced the event with her thanksgiving to the academies followed by awards and recognitions, which commemorated the festive event.
