“Funny yet inspiring”
“Simple yet animating”
“Pomp yet apprising”
These are just some of the adjectives that describe the puppetry show held in St. Joseph’s Gymnasium, SMC-BED Campus last January 31, 2011.
A mirthful activity that aims to teach students how to prevent and give cure to such an irritable disease like cough and colds. The show was facilitated by Kuya Onnie, a ventriloquist. He demonstrated few ways on how to hinder acquiring cough and colds. His way on exhibiting preventions and proper etiquettes when having those said diseases is not an easy task. He brought with him his puppets namely Kisa, Sampaguita and Kingkong.
On his first puppet, Kisa, Kuya Onnie taught Kisa how to wash hands properly. Kisa sang the song “I have two hands” and demonstrated it to his audience. Sampaguita, his second puppet, did a chant on the “Alphabet Song” and instructed his listeners to follow. Lastly, Kingkong, a gorilla-type puppet, sang the song “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star”. Kuya Onnie asked for a volunteer to join him on stage and help him perform ventriloquism wherein Mr. Earl U. Repaso and Ms. Racti Honey Jane A. Estorque adhere and vetriloquize.
The students, teachers and even the administrators had fun and were amused by the said activity at the same time, everyone gained knowledge about the awareness on cough and colds. With the help of the sponsors, Dolan and Disudrin, the puppet show was successful.
St. Michael's College of Iligan City, a Catholic institution of higher learning in Iligan City, administered by the Religious of the Virgin Mary (RVM), offering four levels of education: elementary, secondary, tertiary and graduate school.
Its programs are accredited by the Philippine Accrediting Association of Schools, Colleges and Universities (PAASCU) for 25 years, a silver triumph indeed!
