Industrial Tour at Balay Mindanaw Peace Center

Last June 19, 2014, forty one (41) Housekeeping NCII Students along with Sir Ronald Troy Valerosa their Trainor and Ma’am Daisy Facurib, Head of Student Affairs visited Balay Mindanaw Peace Center.  They were warmly welcomed by our very own Kuya Kaloy Manlupig who was then the Balay Mindanaw President, Kuya Celoy Penaso – Balay Mindanaw Peace Center Supervisor and Ate Flong Torres, Global Mindanaw Polytechnic School Administrator.

When asked, Ma’am Daisy related that they had a round to the following hotel – tourism industries here in Cagayan de Oro City, namely: VIP Hotel, Pryce Plaza, Rhapsody Suite, and Koresco.  Leah Cabelin, Assistant Registrar who also joined in and helped facilitating the Tour had a few words about the organized tour, “Kapoy pero lingaw.” (It was tiring but it’s fun experience.)  This somehow ignited an interest to enroll in Housekeeping NC II soon.

Here’s some snapshot of what went through the Housekeeping Industrial Tour.

Del Monte, Metalite Builders Visit

Del Monte, Metalite Builders Visit

Though it was raining hard last 20th of June 2014, we pushed through and visited Metalite Builders Development Co., Inc. in Baloy, Cagayan de Oro City together with Ms. Fleurabelle “Flong” Torres and some of our students namely, Clifford Presores, John Carlo Babano, Saul Anthony Babano, and Junry Papin.  These students were called for contract signing for their OJT program with this company. We met Sir Jerome Geroy, their HR Manager who as well facilitated the contract signing.  He talked Tagalog most of the times which gave me an impression where he might be coming from. One thing I liked about him was his modesty in speech. He shared that two of our Alumni on Heavy Equipment Operation – Forklift NCII Warnel Lopez and Arniel Victor were accepted as Forklift Operator in their company. Metalite Builders have excelled and maintained their standards in Engineering/Construction Industry, he explained.

The company started on April 1988 and now present in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanaw.  I first set foot in Metalite Builders last June 9, 2014, along with Leah Angelie Cabellin in their fabrication site in Alae, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. Then, we accompanied our students for their OJT application. They were interviewed right away and were scheduled to start the following day.

Another industry which had also given our students opportunity to have their OJT program for their course in Heavy Equipment Operation in Backhoe NC II was Del Monte Philippines, Inc. located in Camp Phillips, Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon.  Del Monte is popularly known in Agricultural Industry with total of 20,000 hectares of pineapple plantation in Bukidnon and Misamis Oriental.  This was also the company where my parents worked for around 20 years and retired.  I grew up as one of the dependents here.  When I was tasked to personally endorse our students application, I was excited.  It gave me a chance to again sit in their office and meet old familiar faces.  Though it took a week after endorsement to get a feedback from them, yet I was just grateful to have been trusted and finally accepted six of our students to undergo OJT program with them.

With much hope, we look forward for a stronger bond with these two companies. Lia Ali hherah@gmail.com Continue reading
