regions of the country, icing her victory with a 21 overall score against the 15 points
of her closest rival from CALABARZON.

Winning in the National Science Quiz Bee is like passing through the proverbial eye
of the needle since one needs to compete with the best quizzers of the country, but
Im glad I ended victoriously and was rewarded a gold medal and a five-feet
trophy, said Syjongtian beaming with a smile.

The science quizzer also told that her victory in the said competition is credited to

National Science Fair at Calapan City, Oriental Mindoro to her winning streak in the
RSHS Science and Mathematics Summit in Zamboanga City.

Syjongtian is the first national champion of RSHS-02 and the second national
champion of Region 02 in the said competition.

Meanwhile, RSHS-02 principal Dr. Fabio M. Macalling Jr. told that RSHS-02 is always
committed to give the best Science instruction not only to repeat the victory of
Syjongtian but also to sustain its status as the center of science education in the

We have been eyeing the champ crown for three years and Syjongtian ended our
quest for that elusive gold medal, closing the school year with a remarkable
victory, he said.

Schools with biggest increases and declines
Top and bottom 10 schools in the state
The statewide test results for 2014-15 were both a cause for celebration and a call
to action for Fayette County Public Schools officials.

The results were made public early Thursday.

William Wells Brown Elementary, which in 2013-14 was ranked lowest in Kentucky
among elementary schools, increased its score by 19.2 points and moved up 26
spots among all elementary schools.

Its score rose from 35.4 out of 100 to 54.6. It is classified as "needs
improvement/progressing," but it was among eight schools in Fayette County
designated as "high progress" for having the best gains among elementary schools.

Also, after four years of academic gains, Bryan Station High School no longer is
classified as a "priority," or persistently low-achieving, school.

Its scores increased from 62.6 in 2013-14 to 65.4. However, it is classified as "needs
improvement," and its scores rank it among the lowest 20 high schools in the state.

"This year's scores give us many reasons to celebrate," said Marlene Helm, the
district's acting senior director of academic services. "We still have work to do. Our
sleeves are rolled up. Our focus is laser-sharp. We are determined to seize this
opportunity to continue to make improvements."

The district's overall classification improved from "needs improvement" in 2013-14

to "proficient." Fayette County's overall 2015 score is 68.1, up from its 2013-14
score of 66.0.

District officials said there were score increases at more than 70 percent of Fayette
schools that receive accountability ratings. Two Lexington high schools Henry
Clay and Lafayette received "distinguished" ratings. No high schools in the
district received that rating in 2013-14.

Among the lowest-performing schools were Mary Todd Elementary, Deep Springs
Elementary and Crawford Middle School. In all, 24 Fayette schools were rated
"needs improvement" in 2014-15, down from 29 in 2013-14.

Fifteen of those also were classified as "needs improvement/progressing" for making


On the down side, the number of students who had "novice" ratings on tests last
spring has increased. In 2014, 4,363 Fayette County students scored novice in
reading and 3,334 students scored novice in math. In 2015, those numbers rose to
4,452 in reading and 3,568 in math.

"We have a moral imperative to close the achievement gap by reducing the number
of novice learners," Helm said.

James McMillin, acting principal of Bryan Station High School, said the gains were
important at his school, but continued progress also was needed.

"We are looking forward to building on those gains as we move Bryan Station to
proficient status," he said.

State and district officials said they would continue to provide extra help at Bryan

Kentucky Department of Education spokeswoman Nancy Rodriguez said Bryan

Station is designated as a "focus" school one of 23 in the district. Focus schools
have large achievement gaps between groups of students and/or low graduation
rates. Bryan Station also is part of a state pilot to reduce the number of students
scoring at the lowest level.

The latest scores show Bryan Station struggled particularly in math and science. But
achievement gaps between white and black students weren't as great as at other
Fayette high schools.

Of the district's 52 schools, 28 earned ratings of proficient or distinguished.

Veterans Park Elementary was the eighth-highest-scoring elementary school in the


Fayette County had eight schools classified as distinguished/progressing and 11

classified as distinguished.

Five schools were honored as "schools of distinction" for having scores above the
95th percentile: Athens-Chilesburg, Glendover, Rosa Parks, Sandersville and
Wellington elementary schools.

William Wells Brown principal Jay Jones said he thought test scores improved there
because of the staff and strategies, including small-group instruction in reading and
math, and dedicating time in the daily schedule to help students with writing.

"Our growth reflects a combination of faith and hard work," Jones said. "When we
got our scores last year, it was a blow to the staff. We had to pick ourselves up, stay
positive and stay focused on the kids and what we needed to do for them."

Graduation: Time to celebrate the success

For us, students, graduation day is a much awaited event in our lives. It is the day
which we have looked forward to for many years. It is the day to which we have set
our minds as the fulfillment of our educational goal.
There is nothing more joyful for students than to walk up the stage and receive their
diploma as a symbol of the end of their sacrifices of reading, memorizing and
studying in the dead of the night in preparation for the examinations the following
But if graduation is a day of joy for students, it is more so for their parents, who have

toiled and worked very hard so that their children will be able to have proper
There is nothing more fulfilling and satisfying for parents than to see their children
finish their studies especially if they make it with honors. They consider it as their
outstanding achievement as parents.
That is why if their children fail to graduate because the children did not study well
due to bad companions, graduation day becomes a painful and embarrassing event
for them.
So to the graduates, especially those with honors, congratulations! But most
importantly, we congratulate the parents who would surely be there, with their heads
up and with shining faces, proud and happy for their childrens success.
Investing in ICT for Quality Education
By Neil Romano S. Manaog

The investments of the government and private sectors in Information and Communications
Technology (ICT) have indeed contributed to young Filipinos access to quality education.
Although not all schools in the Philippines are wired to the Internet yet, those with access to
ICT tools make the most of the technology. In our region, many of our students and teachers
utilize ICT in their learning and teaching. Using ICT tools is fundamental in mining class
topics, and in doing school assignments, research work and other scholastic activities.
Students show more enthusiasm in an ICT-integrated classroom. I have observed that
classroom instructions using traditional tools like chalk and blackboard are becoming less
and less appealing to my students. I discovered that using computers, LCD projectors and
interactive topic exercises not only motivate my students but also helps me in managing the
classroom. ICT tools save time and enrich students learning experience. Because of their
interest in the subject and the tools used for instruction, students are inspired to participate
in the activities and to learn how to create and manipulate their own learning tools.
Even the teachers challenge themselves to learn more about new teaching strategies.
Teachers use audio-visual presentations and even introduce recorded lessons in their
classes. We are very fortunate because our school has been provided with enough tools to
help teachers improve their teaching strategies.
With the onset of ICT integration in education, todays teachers, regardless of what subject
they teach, need to acquire new skills that will enable them to maximize the potentials of
ICT and the Internet. Basic skills include the use of e-mail, designing lesson presentations,
making grades on spreadsheets, creating simple letters and programs, research work and
even online content development. I believe that the acquisition of these skills is needed, or
else, the full potential and relevance of the Internet in educational studies wont be realized
by the students. With regards to online shared learning, teachers today should also
recognize that learning should not be limited in the classroom. With the Internet,

collaborative projects can be undertaken where two or more classes or groups from various
geographical locations can work on a common project.
I believe that the success of ICT integration in education can be achieved through the
collaboration of teachers, school administrators, government and private sectors. Investing
in education wins big. Investing in ICT for quality education reaps greater rewards for the
youth, the teachers, our future.
