The Humanities and Social Sciences are the study of human behaviour and
interaction in social, cultural, environmental, economic and political contexts. The
Humanities and Social Sciences have a historical and contemporary focus, from
personal to global contexts, and consider challenges for the future.

Through studying Humanities and Social Sciences, and through the activities we
have attended to during the Culminating Activity, I have developed the ability to
question, think critically, solve problems, communicate effectively, make decisions and
adapt to change. Thinking about and responding to issues requires an understanding
of the key historical, geographical, political, economic and societal factors involved,
and how these different factors interrelate. I am beyond grateful to experience such
opportunities offered by amazing and passionate educators of Capiz National High
School – HUMMS Strand.

This subject provided a broad understanding of the world in which we live, and
how people can participate as active and informed citizens with high-level skills
needed for the world we live in today.
The Culminating Activity was indeed a way to make us realize that learning isn’t always taught
inside the classrooms and we don’t always get to understand life and struggles through textbooks.

On the first day of the activity, we had an opening ceremony featuring our Culminating
Activity Adviser, Mr. Jonel E. Acuril. The opening program lit the activity on fire. During this day I was
excited to experience great undertakings waiting ahead.

On the second day of the Culminating Activity, the Community Outreach Program took place.
This event was really vital for our existence, it makes us human by developing our social integrity
through helping others and sharing smiles and happiness to those who are in need. The City Council
Observation, we were able to witness how laws and bills are being observed in the council. It was also
great to have a photo opportunity with Councilors of Capiz that makes our Province even better.

On the third and fourth day, we attended the Jejak Exchange seminar workshop. It is an
international event which is a multi-disciplinary programe that re-introduces established Asian artists
with international reputation alongside showcasing emerging ones. One of their advocacies is the
preservation of art in the country and educating the youth regarding with the culture and issues in the

On the fifth day of the Culminating Activity, our very own emerging artist, Mataji Villareal
Sharma and Lucille Manuel gave a workshop in Capiz National High School and was held in library.
The artists showcased their talents and promote their works. They’re heartfelt passion and dedication
to art gave inspiration and opportunities to the students to dream better and pursue art themselves.

On the sixth day, we attended the court hearing presided by by Hon. Kristine B. Tianco-
Vinculado. A hearing is a proceeding before a court or other decision-making body or officer, such as
a government agency or a legislative committee.

We performed our interpretative dance called “The Legend of the Jellyfish” or “La Medusa” in
the closing ceremony which is the last day of our Culminating Activity. We ended the show with a blast
and everyone who were involved in this activity were satisfied enough.
Books are considered to be the source of all knowledge, but all that one learns through a book
is only of theoretical nature in the form of ideas and concepts. It is essential to utilize them in a real
environment and experience the knowledge that is learned from books.

During the Culminating Activity, I have learned vital lesson that molds me into a better person,
a learning that will last for a lifetime. The first day of the activity, was an opening program. Truly,
beginnings are always beautiful. We aren't always ready for change, and hardly do we ever want
change, but our fear of the unknown will hold us back more than anything else in our lives. We have to
let go of our need to control the future, we have to move out of our comfort zone. If we choose to
stay, in a world, stuck, nothing will ever happen for us. But if we decide that the future holds much
greater things ahead than anything we may leave behind, and we embrace that change - that's
when we will truly notice the beauty of new beginnings. The culminating activity is truly a beginning of
our lifetime. It taught us many things, including the appreciation of art, culture and beauty through
events such as Jejak International Seminar Workshop and seminars from our very own emerging artists,
Mataji Villareal Sharma and Lucille Manuel.

It was also in my memory that I had the chance to witness court observation. I have realized
that before an ordinance is passed, it was critically discussed by different body of the council.
Showcasing of talent was also one of the things I loved during the Culminating Activity. The week-long
activity, made me feel so productive. I even had the chance to join to a TV Broadcasting Production,
for a week, I had learned how to utilize editing software in order to create an output for TV Broad, I
even won the Third Best TV Production. I also always enjoyed performing our The Legend of the Jelly
Fish and Lava song production. I will keep in my memories, forever, the fun and unforgettable shared
moments I had with my classmates.

In conclusion, they say “Experience is the best teacher”. It is an old cliché but I agree with that.
Although some people think that best way to learn about life is by listening to our elders, teachers and
through lessons, I believe that people gain the best by their experiences. Learning by our own
experiences is long lasting and provides better wisdom, and this Culminating activity has just provided
us the best experience in our entire academic pursuant.
