Valedictory Speech of Gen Mark Tanno (Grade School Class 2011)

A pleasant morning to all of you my dear classmates, teachers, friends, and all to all the parents here.

Ms. Avic, my name is Gen Mark Tanno. I am answering the question you asked when I first came to Southville. I don’t know if you still remember, but the first time I came here seven years ago, you asked me what my name was. I didn’t even know what your question meant so I didn’t know how to respond to you.

Show It Some Love: The SISC College Library

Each of us has a favorite hangout in school. For some, it’s the cafeteria where food is readily available; or the open court for fresh air and fun bonding sessions with friends. But there are also moments when we want to be alone. And in those times, we search for something different to do, something that we would enjoy—like reading. For the non-bookworms, here’s the thing about books: they are great company during “me time”. Not only will they transport you to fictional worlds, but also infuse your mind with valuable lessons about life.

Great news to college students! The … [Read more]

The Young Royal: LA Aguinaldo, a true Southville Monarch

It was after he won Mr. Southville International School and Colleges (SISC) that alumnus LA Aguinaldo’s modeling career began. A modeling agent approached him after the pageant and offered him a modeling contract. Soon, the modeling agency sent LA’s portfolio to clients, and he started doing commercials in his free time or in between classes. LA thought that modeling is a good outlet to relax, hence, his decision to be a full-time model after college. Diverting all of his energy and time to modeling, the craft became LA’s passion. “I fixed my lifestyle. I went to bed earlier, ate healthier, … [Read more]
