Life has a way of throwing challenges and obstacles when we least expect it. The key is always have that readiness to hurdle whatever it is that comes our way. Big or small, you must find a cue to move forward and carry on. I hope for a fact that the scholars, many of you are burdened by many reasons, some may have a life easier than others, but I am confident that you are all made of stronger stuff with resolved determination and attitude as you sail through the tough times- which did not break, instead, make you. -- Mr. Cesar Mario O. Mamon | Chairman and President, Enchanted Kingdom
Tumatak sa akin ang salitang GRATITUDE o PAGPAPASALAMAT. Binago nito ang tingin ko sa buhay. Ako ay nagpapakumbaba sapagkat lahat ay hindi, “entitled” sa kahit ano sa buhay. Ibinigay ito sa iyo ng mga taong may mabuting-loob. Kaya’t ito ay dapat ipapasa din natin sa iba, sapagkat dahil dito ay mapagbubuti din ang ating sariling loob. Hayaan nating magpatuloy magdulot ito ng pagbabago tungo sa kabutihan, “LET THE MAGIC CONTINUE!” -- MARK LAURENCE IBO | Batch Representative | Awardee, Gold Merit, Out-standing In-School and In-Plant, Learning Excellence, Trained and Employed at Enchanted Kingdom

Fr. Peter EM Cabreros
