Southville President Talks on National Educators Summit

Southville International School and Colleges’ President, Dr. Marl V. Ferenal, recently shared his expertise on “Educating for the Future” from an educator’s point of view during the National Educators Summit on Teaching Entrepreneurship, a conference organized by entrepreneur and broadcaster, Dr. Carl Balita.
The 2-day event was participated by hundreds of practitioners from the academe and the industry.
Dr. Ferenal underscored the importance of having a business program in a school. “In Southville, we start financial education in the early years. This is in agreement with a saying from the al- time bestselling book that goes, “Train up a child the way he should go so that when he is old, he will not depart from it.” That is clearly educating for the future.”
Financial Literacy Program at Southville starts in grade 2 wherein the school integrates in Math, English and Homeroom classes different lessons on how to earn, spend, save, and donate. Grades 3 to high school organize their own bazaars on the other hand, based on the business plans they make. High school students are also introduced to stock trading in the Capital Market Learning Center which is a simulation of the Philippine Stock exchange. The students see real time stock trading transactions and they themselves get a chance to invest in real stocks. College students on the other hand are given business subjects across all courses to help them become entrepreneurs someday.
