SWIMMING POOL: BUSINESS FOR PLEASURE?
By Agan Mark Carag

 

Our college is not looking in this perspective only but rather focus on what this project can do to help the filipino students learn how to swim and who knows, maybe in the future we will be able to send a representative from our city for swimming competitions held nationally or abroad.

What makes Sunrise Christian College different from the rest of the colleges and universities in Butuan city in the CARAGA region?
SCC is known as an English speaking campus and is regarded as one of the greatest competitor in the city when it comes to mtap, water quiz and water district oratorical contest, galing filipino essay writing contest, and soon to be in sports competition.
How about a swimming pool within the school campus? Would it give another honor? One of the distinguishing features that SCC is proud of is the 25x50-meters swimming pool. The question is, how can this be of great help to the institution? Is it constructed for business or for pleasure? Or both?
Common knowledge suggests that a swimming pool is for fun and relaxation. The institution is not looking in this perspective only but rather focus on what this project can do to help the filipino students learn how to swim and maybe in the future we will be able to send a representative from our city for swimming competitions. Also, the proceeds of this project will help improve the schools physical facilities. In short, this will serve, as an income generating project to help support some needs of the students and the school itself. For the school to continue rendering its services and commitment in the pursuance of academic excellence towards the people of Butuan city and the neighboring provinces, this project, therefore, is a means of catalyst of change and transformation.
However, the construction of the swimming pool is still going on but its contractor promises that this swimming pool will be open to the public by the last quarter of the year.
The swimming pool is a blessing. Therefore, it must be used according to its purpose. God bless SCC. God bless this great project!
