Eskuelan San Francisco de Borja students recently participated in a poster and essay contest as part of the celebration of Catholic Schools Week 2013. The theme “Catholic Schools Raise the Standards” was used for the event.
“This was a chance for the students to showcase their talents in drawing and essay writing, and also show appreciation to the many people who make up the school and the Luta community," stated ESFDB board president Edward Maratita Jr.
First to third grade students participated in the poster contest while the fifth to seventh grade joined the essay contest.
The winners for the poster contest were Marvin DLC Clitar, first place; Randy Jesse Taisacan, second place; and Althea Mendiola, third place. All three students are 3rd graders.
The winners for the essay contest were Metka Mendiola, first place; Loreville Clitar, second place; and Angelica Lucero, third place. All three students are 7th graders.
Congratulations to the winners and the participants of the poster and essay contest.

The administration, faculty, and staff would like extend their appreciation to the school's board of directors and Pacific Regional Training Institute for their generous donations and sponsorship. (PR)
