Last August 10, Climax band performed at the STI Caloocan covered court. Musikaramay or also known as Climax Band performs in different places because their advocacy is to raise funds for students, especially for those children who live in the streets. Their band qualified as one of the acts that represented the Philippines on the 1st Asia’s Got Talent which was aired via AXN Asia.
Musikaramay visited STI Caloocan last August 10, 2015 and it was a blast. The students of STI enjoyed the performance but most importantly, they were able to help and share to those in need while having fun at the same time. Most of the students enjoyed the performance of the band; some of the students joined and sang along together with the songs they performed. All of the money that was collected was used to conduct a sharing in a form of a celebration in Jollibee where the kids enjoyed and received bags and other merchandise that might be helpful for their necessities.
The candidates, along with the sponsors, AOC Monitors, Philips LED TV, Philips Monitors, Globe, Jollibee, Chowking and Yoshinoya, were very much willing to lend a hand to this charity event. The candidates showed willingness to give and exhibited what an STI role model should be and sticked to the brand of the school which is BeSTI. This goes to show that the pageant, Mr. and Ms. STI, is not only to showcase the physical beauty of STI students but also to present to everyone that it goes beyond that; It is not the physical aspect that they aim to uplift, but it is more on what they can do for others that will make them the best role model for their fellow STIers. The aim of the candidates and the institution is to be a catalyst on involving oneself to works that establishes relationship and promotes transformative education.
Overall, the event was a success. The 30 people that they helped: children living at the cemetery and slum areas went home with smiles on their faces. With the help of everyone who participated, the sponsors and the candidates, all of the kids enjoyed the games, the food, and it made them forget all their worries. Because of this event, we witnessed how in small things that we do, if we do it hand in hand, it will make a big difference.
