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