Last July 28, 2015 (Tuesday), we, the STEM students, had our first exposure trip at the SMX Convention Center courtesy of the DOST's Science and Technology week. I have 3 words to sum up my whole experience: tiring, fun, and interesting. It was tiring because in order to get a free ride to the DOST's new Hybrid Train, you had to go around the whole venue searching for people to sign a paper that we were given. So we were like in Amazing Race at that time.

Hope Christian High School celebrated the National Book Week last November 24-26, 2014 with the theme “Philippine Libraries: Future Possibilities.” With this, the library staff have prepared different activities for the students for them to enjoy the said event.
For starters, both pre-school and high school libraries had major “make-overs”. Different book covers were displayed all around the library, familiar titles that the readers would surely recognize. Informative trivia questions connected to the theme were also posted everywhere. A mini-book festival was also showcased where visitors may freely browse popular, award-winning titles.
Right after the end of World War II, on October 24, 1945, United Nations was established as mankind's last hope for peace. Every year, the whole world celebrates its founding anniversary in keeping with its mission to promote peace and solidarity among its constituent nations.
The Social Studies Department had its own contribution to commemorate its founding anniversary. Last October 20-24, 2014, with its theme "United Nations: For Peace and Progress," the students of Hope Christian High School participated in different activities such as essay writing, poster exhibit, acrostic making, and an international food festival. All these activities help promote awareness among our students on how this organization is helping the whole world preserve peace and progress.

Acclaimed children’s book writer and illustrator Robert Magnuson gave a book talk to Grades 3-5 students last October 1, 2014 at the HS Library. Starting off with the talk, he shared how he got started with his love affair with books.
“I grew up in a family that loves books. My two older brothers would borrow books which I ended up reading myself,” he narrates. Later he tried his hand at making his own books, which paved the way for him to start illustrating.
