As part of its commitment to its mission of developing holistic UST Angelican learners, the Guidance Counseling and Testing Department held its annual celebration of Guidance Awareness and Career Week last September 17-21, 2018, with the theme, “#YOUMATTER: Gearing Mental Health Empowerment Towards Career Success.” The theme aimed to capture the salient concerns of the learners to be able to help them cope with those concerns positively. It also includes career-related activities which aimed to explore their interests, talents, and capabilities of the learners.

 The department organized different activities for the different levels. The PK 2 to YS 3 levels had a Group Guidance Activity about Understanding Emotions. Meanwhile, YS 4 and 5 levels had a Career Dress-up Contest titled “Your Future Sounds Familiar: Talent Competition”, where the presentation and awarding of the best costume winners were held at the St. Albert Auditorium. Winners were the learners from YS 4-W1 and YS 5-W1.

A Mental Health Seminar Series was also prepared, which included the All About Self-Care talk for the YS 6 & 7 learners which was facilitated by Ms. Donna Fiel Magnaye, RN. Likewise, Dr. Luz Maria Teresa Garcia was invited to talk about the Art of Handling Stress to the YS 8 learners. Ms. Ana Lisa Mina, RN also gave an orientation about the Ways to Deal with our Emotions to the YS 9 learners, while Ms. Vina Gavilano, LPT gave a talk about Coping with Teenage Issues and Concerns to the YS 10 learners. A seminar about Ways to Win and Find Meaning in Difficult Times for YS 11 was facilitated by Mr. Joseph Francis Mabanta. Also, the USTAC Faculty joined the Mindfulness Seminar facilitated by Ms. Sunshine Excel Carino.

Apart from seminars and competitions, fun games and exciting exhibits were also displayed to help the learners to develop awareness about mental health.
