POOL: BUSINESS FOR PLEASURE?
By Agan Mark Carag
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
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
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!
