Since educational institutions now provide a wide range of extracurricular activities to help build character and better prepare students for the real world, shaping the youth goes beyond classroom learning. This philosophy has also been embraced by STI, one of the largest educational institutions in the nation, which uses a comprehensive educational approach as part of its Enrollment to Employment (E2E) System.
STI has created specialized extracurricular activities that enable students to refine and exhibit their talents both within and outside of their individual courses as part of its commitment to producing well-balanced and highly gifted graduates.
Its long-running STI Talent Search program, which has recently returned to its magnificent physical format for the School Year 2022–2023, is one of its student development initiatives. After a brief hiatus due to the epidemic, the event now promotes collaboration among students around the country by showcasing their talents.
On January 13, 2023, students from STI campuses around the nation met at the Star City and Aliw Theater in Pasay City, Metro Manila, for a full-day celebration of talents, skills, and accomplishments that preserves STI’s commitment to greatness.
The best student musicians, dancers, heartthrobs, and darlings competed in this year’s Singing Idol (a solo singing competition), Battle of the Bands (a band competition), Hataw Sayaw (a dance competition), and the eagerly anticipated Search for Mr. and Ms. STI 2022 competitions, all of which were held concurrently at the Aliw Theater and Star City.
STI attendees enjoyed the entire day of festivities and performances by celebrity visitors in addition to having access to the entire theme park.
The STI Talent Search is only one of the student programs lined-up for the school year as the institution prepares to welcome the upcoming Second Semester with more exciting and network-wide educational activities all geared towards holistic development.
“For almost 40 remarkable years of developing students’ potential through academic and extra-curricular activities, STI has always been innovative in providing our students with strong learning experiences to become well-rounded individuals,” said Aisa Hipolito, STI Vice President for Academics.
Among the activities for the 2nd Semester are Tagisan ng Talino and Tagisan ng Sining which include academic competitions like Think Quest (team quiz bee), CodeFest (mobile app development), Mix n’ Flair (flair bartending), Travelogue (tour guiding), Chef Xpress (cooking competition), Shutter’s Best (photography), and Director’s Cut (video making), among others.
