Should the Loyola Schools Activity Hour be moved? Should the Loyola Schools Activity Hour be moved? Presentation Transcript

  • Should the Loyola Schools Activity Hour be moved?
  • from Friday (4:30-600PM) to Monday (4:30-6:00PM) [Wednesday AH will not be moved]
  • LS admin proposed this shift to compensate for the class hours lost due to GMA’s holiday economics
  • Holiday economics entails the transfer of some holidays to a Monday or a Friday so that Filipinos may enjoy longer weekends
  • Monday government-mandated holidays last First Semester:
    • June 9 – Independence Day
    • August 18 – Ninoy Aquino Day
    • August 25 – National Heroes Day
    Source: LS Registrar
  • Other Mondays that lost class hours:
    • July 7 – Australs / INAF Day
    • August 4 – Typhoon
    Source: LS Registrar
  • Last semester, we had… 33 classes that started at 4:30PM (Monday) 3 classes that started at 4:30PM (Fridays) Source: LS Registrar
  • For Mondays, that is equal to… Five ( 5 ) 2-hour classes & Twenty-eight ( 28 ) 3-hour classes Source: LS Registrar
  • 48 hours (M) vs 9 hours (F) Source: LS Registrar
  • How are the organizations reacting to this?
  • They are generally in opposition to this change
  • Less org activities because there is a possibility that Monday classes will be cancelled 1
  • Less attendance to org activities during Mondays compared to Fridays since it’s not a weekend 2
  • Orgs lose the option of extending activities beyond 6:00PM and/or up to Saturdays 3
  • There is less time to promote for Monday activities 4
  • It’s harder to settle pre-project concerns because offices are not open on weekends 5
  • Aside from orgs, who else will be affected ?
    • Guidance testing
    • Placement office activities
    • OSCI Activities Sign-Ups
    • Special classes
  • But more often than not, these offices/classes merely adjust to the available activity hours
  • How many holidays will we have this coming 1 st semester?
  • Government mandated holidays this coming 1 st semester (SY 09-10) Source: Proclamation 1699
    • June 12 (F) – Independence Day
    • August 21 (F) – Ninoy Aquino Day
    • August 31 ( M ) – National Heroes Day
  • and maybe even… Source: Proclamation 1699 4. September 21( M ) - Eid'l Fitr (end of Ramadan)
  • Given all those considerations…
  • Should the Loyola Schools Activity Hour be moved?
