The cheerdance competition is one of the highlights of the celebration.
The University of Baguio Laboratory Elementary School (UBLES) celebrated the Nanay Rosa Day at the UB Gym last Sept. 4.
The Nanay Rosa Day is considered the grandest among all UBLES activities. Each year, UBLES marks the celebration by conducting the UBLES Intramurals and Foundation Day. Games, cheerdance competition, sports competitions, and food booths highlight the event. As the pupils engage in these activities, they learn discipline, teamwork, and patience, especially during practice sessions.
UBLES, one of the earliest departments to be established in UB, is the brainchild of Rosa “Nanay” Castillo - Bautista, one of the founders of UB.
This year, UBLES observed the laboratory elementary school’s 68th founding anniversary.
The commemoration of the school’s foundation day reminds the pupils of the school’s humble beginnings. It gives them the idea that the developments in the school which they are currently delighting in are the result of decades of hard work. – Alicia Viduya
