\”Despite the hardships brought about by recent series of calamities, MCCID has many blessings to be thankful for and celebrating our 16th year of existence is truly important.\”, thus said the MCCID Training Director Jojo Esposa during the school\’s 16th Founding Anniversary last October 30, 2009 at Town and Country Hotel.
As with every year, drama skits and comedy were presented by each year level and section. But this time, the second and third year students showed their talents on a 5-minute video presentation directed by Sir Ervin Reyes. The first year group performed their comedic acts on stage.
One big difference in this year\’s celebration was the participation of the MCCID branch in Tiaong, Quezon. They presented their own brand of comedy skit. The MCCID main student body and administrators were thankful for the efforts made by the branch in coming over to Manila in spite of the impending typhoon that might ravage their province in Southern Philippines.
This year is also the first time the school celebrated under a new MCCID College of Technology, Inc. name.
Winners of each presentation received medals and special recognitions. They were judged according to the clarity of their theme, full participation of each member, props and special effects and audience impact. The members of the Board of Judges include Ma\’am Loida Alvarez of Tiaong, Ms. Lizette Mabini and Ms. Ma. Liza Plata Batch 2003 Alumni who are both successfully employed for more than five years now. The presentation of second year students will be included in the final grades of their Deaf Culture subject while each comedy skit was evaluated by the judges from among the three selections; “Very Good”, “Good” and “Fair”.
A video presentation of \”From Why to How, Accessible ICT\” was also presented during the program. The short docu-film was a collaborative efforts of Asia Pacific Development Center on Disability, Japan International Cooperation Agency, National Council on Disability Affairs, Resources for the Blind and MCCID College of Technology. The video showcased the work made by the Philippines in promoting information and communications technology for the disabled persons. Complimentary DVDs were given to attendees for free.
