Adventist Education is not just acquiring a particular course of study but also equipping students for the joy of lifelong service to God, church, and country. To continue this commitment, South Philippine Adventist College started its limited face-to-face classes on August 15, 2022. After two years of online/modular types, new faces and old ones reunited to embrace the physical learning mode amidst the pandemic.

 

This limited face-to-face class brought joy to the students, where they could learn and interact with each other in person. “I am overjoyed as of the moment knowing that we are back in our face-to-face class after all the hardships of distance learning,” Mekko Eleine Doluna, a 2nd – year BSBA student, said in an interview with SPAC Media.

Following the ongoing pandemic protocols, SPAC faculty and staff provided safety measures to keep the students safe in the limited face-to-face classes. “Let us face the face-to-face classes with God’s providence, with the protocol, and with our presence,” Vice President of Academic Affairs Lotchie D. Genon said in an interview.

 

Since Matanao is still on the Alert Level 2 COVID restrictions, SPAC must abide by the 50% indoor and 70% outdoor capacity for fully vaccinated students. With this, students observe the minimum public health standards, including checking temperature, maintaining physical distancing, wearing face masks, and filling in the Health Declaration forms.

 

Indeed, this school year has once again ignited the students’ and teachers’ enthusiasm for in-person learning needed for this world and for the world to come.

 

All glory to God!
