    Best Journalism High School in the Philippines

    this may not apply to all high schools for not all (especially private and exclusive high schools) participate in high school press conference.

    But what school do you think is the best journalism high school in the Philippines??

    If you are to ask me, I have to say its Lagro high School in Quezon City. It has produced many winners for different contests and even ranked first in last year's NCR press conference.

    I might be too biased coz i graduated from this school but I want to hear the opinion of others about the topic.

    nyahaha. walang pumatol?! joke.

    i think i know one that is one of the best in the country.
    it's The Clarion of the Tanza National Comprehensive High School! one of the oldest school papers outside those in the NCR. two-time winner of the Best School Paper in the CMMA..

    at syempre, nabanggit na din siya once sa mga libro ng ating dakilang lolo, si Tito Ceciliano Jose Cruz - which means, kahit na sa Cavite siya matatagpuan, may tatak pa rin ang school paper na ito to be even mentioned in the good old books of HS journ. wahaha. it may certainly be not the best, but for sure, it's one of the best in terms of seniority and constant good performance.. lumulutang talaga tong paper na to.

    source? close friend na isang HS journalist..

    (Pero hindi ako nakalaban ng RSPC kasi nag-away kami ng school paper adviser ko)

    We have been sending delegates for (NSPC) individual categories pero bilang palang ang nananalo. For English schoolpapaer, bracket A, I believe its Quezon City Science High School's Electron is hitting the stands, pati The Apprentice (magaling talaga ito promise) of Ramon Magsaysay Cubao High School. For Bracket B - English, parang the provinces are dominating this. Bracket A Filipino, provinces din. For Bracket B - Filipino, Ang Sikat has been consistently bagging awards in NSPC Group Category.

    KB41, during our time (batch ko sila bambam pati sa LG Quiz ) si Mrs. dela Cuesta ang adviser ng Lagro High if Im not mistaken. Yes, very good kayo sa individual pero sa paper wala akong masyadong narining, nung time namin. Mrs. dela Cuesta is very good, sya ang trainer namin nung naghost ako ng NSPC.

    nVII: share your journalism achievements

    sa NCRSSPC wala naman kasing contest ng school paper eh, screening lang tapos random ang ranking. Top 15, then dadalhin na sa National. I must say, public school dominates this

    Pero NSCRSSPC kinukuha yung Top 7 to compete sa NSPC, nung time namin, yung mga privates school winners hindi pinapayagan ng parents so swerte yung top 8, 9, 10.

    Minsan, ang individual contests depend on the judges' style. During their talks dapat makuha mo yung style nila. Except of course sa copyreading. Hehe.

    I have learned minsan na dapat hindi masyadong advanced sa copyreading hehe. Specially sa symbols. One time, i killed (box) the whole paragraph, hayun, talo. Hahaha.

    ^ i posted that already and i can't post it again..

    ha? random ranking? private school studes di pinapayagan? arrg. iba talaga system sa NCR kesa sa provincial regions.
    copyreading is purely based sa judge.. lalo na sa printer's direction at symbols.. dapat kilala mo yung style ng judge or else tagilid ka.. nyahahaha.. copyreading din ako. DATI. minsan tsamba lang yun. totoo, lalo na sa provinces, DSPC judges have to devise ways of eliminating entries or else almost a hundred yung mano-manong check.. wahahaha

    tsk tsk, i miss HS days!

    nVII: Iba talaga sa NCR. Kahit hindi ka nanalo sa DSPC pwedeng pwede kang lumaban sa RSPC. It worked for some naman.

    And yes sa group (school paper) pag regional top 15 ang nilalabas in random order. At sa individual hindi talaga pinapayagan usually ang mga taga private schools, strict ang parents.

    ang maganda sa NCR, special mention sa QC super daming crash trainings and nakukuha nilang trainer yung mga writers talaga na most likely judges sa national. Lalo sa cartooning, si Rene Aranda.

    I missed HS din. Lalo na nung isang RSPC, sports writing ako, pinapanood kami ng isang basketball game tapos naginterview pa kami. Ang hirap grabe.

    ^ di manalo sa DSPC but pwede makapasok sa RSPC? how come?
    sa provincial regions, pag maraming divisions, top 5 lang yung pwede sumali, pero kapag konti lang yung divisions, hanggang top 7. hmmm. NCR in itself has too many partcipants, given na marami talagang public dun. mahirap maging consistent placer sa NCR kung ganun. sa provinces possible kasi yung two-peat, three-peat division winning..
    dami kong natutunan sa PressCon Way ng mga tiga-NCR.. di ko inaasahan ganun pala dun

    That is how things worked during my time. As long as your school's budget can accomodate the finances (registration fees, allowances, gas for the multi-cab hehe) you can join RSPC even without winning DSPC.

    Although, maraming DSPC non-winners ang nakakarating ng NSPC kasi nanalo sila ng RSPC. Pero masaya manalo sa Division (QC), may one thousand from SB!

    Pero Im proud that I came from NCR! Kahit pag National laging kaming naboo-boo. I remember this NSPC incident, I'm with a guy from UP-IS, pumila kami pero hindi talaga namin alam na meron pang nasa likod. May lumapit samin na Mindanao delegate, sinermonan kami, in straight english! Walang kagatol-gatol. Natememe kami. Pero atleast nakabawi nung awarding ceremonies, ilang beses kami umakyat ng stage. Hehe.

    So nVII, you took up Journalism in college? Sadly ako hindi And there's a revenge story behind.

  9. #9
    no. but i almost took up another comm-related course, however may biglang nangyari so i had to change it. it's a long story..

    i may not have taken a journ course but at least i like where i am now. Positively, I've had enough of those writing stuff. For now I want to explore the "other" side of the coast. hehe.

  10. #10
    same here. mine's revenge naman kasi di ba pag star section yung elective is a choice between computer and journ so magkalaban talaga. nung nag away kami ng school paper adviser namin, i told myself i will never write again. kaya i took up a computer-related course (management information system) nung college. na-enjoy ko naman sya.

    minsan lang, namimiss ko din magsulat. pero parang i can't write na rin katulad ng dati.

    Nakakamiss ito.

    Umabot ako sa NSSPC for Sportswriting nung 1995

    Pero agree with Lagro HS, I'm not from the school pero kasabayan namin sila sa division, magagaling sila. Magagaling din and QC Science HS, Lourdes School QC, St Claire's, P. Bernardo HS, UPIS.

    i miss the friends I made back then. Tuloy nyo lang ang pagsusulat mga kids (I feel old) haha.

    I'm from Nueva Ecija kaya i think na medyo offtopic itong akin since I cannot compare the standard of schools in NCR when it comes to journalism matters. Pero I want to share my experiences na din.

    Marami ng naipadalang mga contestants ang school namin sa NSPC. Hindi nawawalan ng RSPC participants every year and humahakot din ng journalists of the year award, etc.

    On my part, I made it to the regionals thrice. 2nd year up to my 4th year. Copyreading and Headline Writing forte ko then my schoolpaper adviser encouraged me to shift to Feature writing nung fourth year unfortunately, RSPC lang inabot ko. I never made it to the nationals due to some circumstances. Medyo malaking failure sa akin yun kasi elementary pa lang nag-cocompete na ako and nabuo yung dream ko na maihanay yung name ko dun sa mga nakarating sa NSPC from my school.

    Oh well, that's life, naenjoy ko naman ang stay ko sa mga RSPC's kasi madami ako naging friends tsaka sarap ng feeling ng excused ka sa klase for almost one week (5 days ang RSPC dito sa min, ewan ko sa iba) and hindi mo na kailangang maghabol for points kasi kung ano score ng highest during exams ay ganon na din score ko. Tsaka yung feeling na pride ka ng school mo and nakasalalay sayo yung name ng alma mater mo.

    Di ko alam kung mag-ttake ako ng journ sa college life, pero naisip ko wag na lang. Mas inclined kasi ako sa health science courses.

    Incoming first year ako ngayon sa UP Manila, BS Physical Therapy at sinisigurado kong mag-jjoin ako sa mga schoolpapers na available dun, para maipagpatuloy ko ang aking pagsusulat. ^^

    Enjoy journalism life! Napakasaya, wag laging iisipin na kayo ang pinakamagaling na manunulat, always bear in mind that an effective writer/journalist possesses humility, courage, and respect in his/her heart which is a place where one can see the real condition/topic in what he/she covers for the people. Mas mahalaga ito sa inverted triangle structure at anumang effective lead constructions na magbibigay lamang ng panandaliang tagumpay.
