Faculty and staff from
the Ateneo de Zamboanga University have been tapped to conduct seminar-workshops
for Senior High School administrators and teachers of the Zamboanga Basilan
Sulu Tawi-Tawi Association of Private Schools (ZAMBASULTAPS) and the Catholic
Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP) in Region IX and Western ARMM
on pedagogy, work ethic and mastery of content.
seminar-workshops for SHS teachers teaching finance and accounting, physics,
chemistry and calculus were conducted last April 25 to 27, 2018; and for
guidance counselors and student activity coordinators, from May 1 to 3, 2018.
Both trainings were held at the Claret School of Zamboanga City.
This series of
seminar-workshops is just one of the several projects of ZAMBASULTAPS and
CEAP-IX headed by AdZU President Fr. Karel San Juan, SJ. Its headquarters is
based in AdZU and is managed by Regional Program Coordinator Annie Ebreo.
almost 30 years ago by past AdZU president Fr. Ernesto Carretero, SJ, and later
expanded by his successor Fr. Willam Kreutz SJ, was formed to bridge the gap
between private schools and government agencies. More than that, the
association aims to provide more “in-service trainings, trainers’ trainings,
and seminars on peace and on the ministry of teaching”. Currently, ZAMBASULTAPS
has 90 member-schools, with 50 of those schools being members of CEAP.
CEAP, on the other
hand, works with other institutions to pursue its mission of solidarity,
inclusive Catholic education and catalyzing change, in line with its vision for
a transformed tomorrow. These institutions include AdZU, the Department of
Education, the Commission on Higher Education, Private Education Assistance
Committee, and more.
