APALIT -- A public technical-vocational school justified its standing as a lone public tech-voc school in the fourth district of Pampanga after outshining 17 schools in the Festival of Talents held in this town last October 18.
It was a landslide victory for Bro. Andrew Gonzalez Technical High School after reaping 10 golds among the 11 categories in the said contest.
Technology and Livelihood Education Festival of Talents or “Technolympics” is one of the fields in the National Festival of Talents (NFOT) and a contest in Technology and Livelihood Education (TLE) subject which showcases marketable products and performances in the different skills acquired by the students in the various specializations.
There were 11 categories in Technolympics: Food Preservation, Innovative Fish Dish, Landscape, Baluster Making, Electronics Servicing and Repair, Automotive, Electrical Installation, Cocktail Wear Construction, Hair and Facial Make-up, PC Assembly, and Web-Page Making.
Only the first placer per contest category will move to the division level on Thursday next week.
The goal of Technolympics is to impart the relevance of various technical-vocational specializations for them to become career-oriented individuals that could change the condition of their homes, their community, as well as the nation.
A total of 18 schools from the four municipalities in Cluster VI such as Apalit, Minalin, San Simon and Sto. Tomas participated in the said competition.
