Pride or Fried chicken?

Thinking about fast foods? Nah, we know you’re smart. You must have seen one of their posters with PUPoy, our Sintang Paaralan’s Centennial Mascot smiling wide and crazy. But what exactly is he smiling about? Well, PUPoy has every reason to rejoice. Finally, we’re seeing action for the PUPian Pride!

To help the 24 participants present at the Forum, the PUP YLF had invited three resource speakers. Bro. Eng Si from the Kerygma Family, Mr. Ringo ‘Mr. Universe’ Borlain and MS. Kym Oliveros,a freshman from the College of Accountancy, who started a forum on Bob Ong’s Bobong Pinoy E-group, ‘Dapat bang ikahiya kung galling ka sa public school? [Read More]
