Government authorities have been struggling for long with achieve success. this question as they are trying to implement policies that will support and enhance learning. Parents are “It’s too hard!” They are too busy complaining just usually seen worrying about too less or too much homework and teachers are criticized for both. like this, although they are not even starting to do anything. Then, here comes the hater kind of students saying, During the past decade, leading educationists have been saying that homework is essential to enhance “I don’t like my teacher” without even realizing that these learners’ educational standards. Meanwhile, others claim that homework helps learners develop skills and teachers are doing their best to help them learn something responsibility and the ability to manage tasks. that they can use in the near future. “I’m bored.” This is also a student complaint, just Homework is beneficial as long as it is used as a tool for learning, motivation and as an opportunity because he does not want to do any school work. to cope with academic benefits. It may benefit learners under certain conditions. Older learners are seen “I’m too tired in the morning!” How are you going to have to have more benefit than younger learners. Doing homework can be a valuable learning experience for six to eight hours of sleep if you are staying up all night to some. It also has non-academic benefits like helping learners to build routines, develop skills and take talk to your friend, boyfriend, girlfriend or your crush who responsibility. does not even care about you. Why don’t we prioritize our school works and do it Beyond academic achievement, homework may have other benefits too. It hones the learner’s ability with passion? Do you know that each work we make is a to be creative, responsible and well-disciplined. It also develops good study habits and attitude towards step closer to our success? So, think about it and try not to work and submission deadlines. It helps learners understand that studying should occur at home as well. waste time in complaining but in achieving success. Assignments can inculcate traits of independent learning and responsibility. Also, they give parents an opportunity to see the activities going on in school.

By: Crisanto V. Razon Cellphones are very helpful for it can help in communication, entertainment and self-expression using the camera or captur- ing selfies, but is it only helpful? Or it can also be the reason of harmful effects to a person? There are many youngsters who are abusing the capability of a cellphone or called overusing mostly in selfies, just take pic- ture here, there and everywhere they go and it becomes the reason why they suffered from addiction. However, they do not know that selfie is very detrimental especially to those people who do not know what they are taking or doing and also to those people who just want to post anything they want to flex. According to the research, 93 million self-pictures are taken daily. In fact, there are 10 selfies that are posted to Instagram application in every 10 seconds, so do you think it is not an addiction that can affect you? In addition, selfie addiction can cause suicide just like the story of Danny Bowman who committed suicide after his desperation to take a perfect selfie that lasted in 10 hours. The real problem here is we are just focusing to go with a trend, by means of selfie, we are unintentionally becoming perfec- tionists. Selfie thought us not to be contented in what we did and what we have. It is like a monster mirror, you know why? It is a monster mirror because when you face a mirror, you can see your reflection like a selfie but it can be broken if you overuse it. This can have a harmful effect. Just like drug addiction, it is a monster that will slowly kill and eat you.

6 THE MAAYAP FEATURE S.Y. 2019-2020 MNHS version 3.0 By: Christina Julia Galindez “The only constant in life is change”, this is a fa- mous line quoted by a Greek philosopher, Heraclitus. Everyone and everything can change in just a blink of an eye. As time goes by, nothing stays the way it is be- fore. Things like weather, climate, feelings and even people change. However, not all changes are tragic and heartbreaking. Some are destined to change to be a better and more developed version of itself. In our history, evolution exists; humans from Aus- tralopithecus becomes Homo sapiens. The old and simple living gets easier after transformation of tech- nology, and even the rural back then blooms into an urban after modernization. All of these are fruits of changes with the help of different leaders. After 45 years of being constructed and proclaimed as one of the official secondary schools in Cabanat- uan, Mayapyap National High School glows into a more excellent and more beautiful home of learners. It always has been a shelter of students since 1974 but as time passes with different leadership, different changes happen. Our loving, passionate, and brave leader today is no other than our Principal, Dr. Mary Jane Pascual-San- tos. Her love for the environment never ends. Envi- ronmental programs like Zero Plastic, Power Store and Eco-friendly canteen were conducted with her never ending support. These programs aim to teach students on maintaining cleanliness and respect for their surroundings. Because of this, MNHS becomes eco-friendly. The use of plastic cups were also prohib- ited. Canteen only sells nutritious foods to assure that everyone eat healthy. When it comes to buildings, the previous numbers of establishments back then were doubled. The newly constructed building for regular sections is four-floor high. MNHS also adapted K-12 and accepts incom- ing senior high schools students who desires to take the strands: HUMMS, ABM, TVL, and STEM. They also have their own building located near the covered court. They have their own located rooms which con- tain materials that can be used for elaborate learning. MNHS is currently being renovated. The faculty rooms of teachers are now per grade level. Every teachers has their own table and designated room. Even the small and boring library turned into a color- ful and peaceful haven of readers. More books were added. There are also updated newspapers located there. More transformations are expected. This is just the beginning of new system. Everyone is hoping that the good leadership of our new principal would continue. The change is really on its way and to face it means to welcome another better day.

By: Christina Julia Galindez Each of us has something that puzzles our mind. As an aftereffect, we dig for answers that would grant peacefulness to our soul. Unfortunately, there are instances that answers are not to be revealed but to be found. The easiest way we think is to ask. Aside from “what”, “who”, “when”, “where”, and “how”, one of the hardest questions is “why”. It has been the most followed up ques- tion every time someone is being ask by ‘yes or no’. It is usually asked in pageants, interviews and interrogations. A very well explanation will surely make you win and bring home the bacon. Because of confusion, I asked myself, “Why do we ask why?” Being a kid possessing deep curiosity on surroundings, I tried to search for the keys that would end the mystery that keeps hunting my mind. At first, it was really unsatisfying not to know the path through dis- covery until I was lost in a paradise of answers. First, I learned that knowledge is the favorite weapon of everyone. Most of us believe that to ask is to learn. The main reason of asking “why” is our hungry minds wanting to know more about a certain thing or issue that may be unfamiliar to us. It is the shortest road we think just to earn an answer. Learning has always been the best trophy we’ve ever had. Second, we are always seeking for reasons; reasons why something happened or would happen. Through that, we can think of pos- sibilities why a situation occurs. Third, we always find purpose for everything. Not all things matter so a lot of people weighs the importance of something by asking why should it be like this/that or why should it befall in the first place. Fourth, we want to understand how an event begun in order for us to do something about it. The time we knew the answers, it be- comes easier for us to give a solution on any problems. Fifth, it has been the way of knowing someone’s background and views in life. The more they answer that, the more we consider their points and opinions. The more we ask, the more we learn. It is the gate, welcoming us to the world of great discovery. Our brain never stops functioning and even in our dreams, asking why exists.

8 THE MAAYAP LITERARY S.Y. 2019-2020 Complicated love A LETTER FOR ROMEO by: Gracielyn S. Mendoza (From the book Romeo and Juliet) CHRISTINA JULIA GALINDEZ Sometimes it feels like a fire in the prettiest attire, Cannot be expressed by simple words of desire; It took a lot of days for me to find you Exclaimed! Don’t dare to define or explain; But all you gotta do is find a ‘new’ Love is sometimes complicated and not too plain, Did you still remember the word ‘loyalty’? It is to be shown and not to be left behind, I thought you are already the man of my dreams living in It is like a treasure, sometimes it’s hard to find. reality Love is a gamble; it’s a cruel game to play, We’re both warriors, ready to battle There’s no hint or clue if you’ll win or lose today; For this love I thought would go well Am I the only one who’s still fighting? It is a glory from above! It is called love, But in the end, I know I’ll be losing You’ll like the feeling of love, like a flying dove; It’s the safeness you have when you’re feeling scared, What’s with Juliet that make you fall in love with her? When your mind stop but your heart aims to dare. Is that enough to leave and hurt me harder? Broken heart, miserable mind Love can conquer all when you feel you want to fall, Broken feelings, miserable life For the tears and smile, love is the greatest of all; Love is like a morning breeze a heavenly bliss, Every tear falling from my eyes Makes the pain severe twice The feeling is great each moment you want to freeze; I was born for no dramas Don’t complain about the world, just feel the sweetest kiss, But my love life makes it contrast There’s no feeling of emptiness; I promised. In this novel I thought I will become your one and only leading lady But no, I am not. Juliet flips the script and the story. Lucid Dreams HE (Reverse poetry) By: Alisa A. Macapagal By: Samantha P. Mateo In my dreams, He is just a pure stupidity Where you and I exist; I am wrong to say that I found it was a geez, But ended up a kiss. He will save me from my painful journey From the very beginning, He already abandoned me In my dreams, Where you learn to love me back; And its non-sense that Where you think I am the one, Love is always beside me You want to cherish all your life. Cause it is the only truth I’m nothing but a failure In my dreams, I am fool to believe that Where you are able to kiss my forehead; He cares for me, that he loves me Lay me on a bed, So I cage myself that And be with me ‘til the end. I don’t need their acceptance, His acceptance In my dreams, I was wrong to paint in my mind that That I badly want to happen; In every wish I hope But then, it was just a dream, That is meant to be forgotten. He lends his ears to me I understand now completely My hopes will stay as wish I’m fool to believe that I can count on him Because There’s no one I can cry on It is pure imagination, that He is there to be my armor Now I know who will save me My hope, my escape to this cruelty Is To believe means to be deceived I stopped to think that There’s a He

S.Y. 2019-2020 ENTERTAINMENT THE MAAYAP 9 10 THINGS STUDENTS WANT THEIR TEACHERs TO KNOW By: Pauline Joy R. Gelacio 1. Students want to spend the time to get to know them. They want to be understood. 2. Students want to learn the way they want. Also they want to have a voice in the learning process and want to share their way of doing things. 3. Students want to be respected and be loved too. 4. Students want to be “applicably” challenged with meaningful and appropriate learning experiences. 5. Students want teachers to know that they too have bad and off days. 6. Students want to be recognized especially when they did something they don’t usually do. 7. Students want to be partners with you when it comes to the learning process. 8. Students want teachers to be trustworthy because there are things that they cannot tell anyone. 9. Students want their interests and passions to be infused in the learning that occurs in the learning. 10. All students want to know that their existence matters and that they are important. They are more significant than anything. only MAYLINIANS will know! By: Enjelaine E. Soriano 1. Power Store 6. CCTV 2. Maylinians 7. ClayGo 3. Stub 8. Cleanliness 4. Eco-friendly 9. Beautification 5.

10 T H E M A AYA P SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY S.Y. 2019-2020 Say ‘NO’ to plastic By: Mark Anthony M. Salva As I walk through the aisle of every pathway, I am seeing them. They are crumpled and put into the edges of the walls. Sticky floors because of spilled beverages and unpleasant smell of flavored sauces were scattered. It was the dark days of our second home, Mayapyap National High School. Everything has changed. The old days were gone, change has come. Everything that has men- tioned was few of those phrases that we can incorporate with the new administration led by Ma’am Mary Jane P. Santos, our new principal. She has the wit as you listen to her lips whispering good deeds with a flavor of jokes that makes every Maylinian put into laughter. She has the feet of a true hardworking leader that will walk on the stony surface of the school grounds just to make sure it was clean and well maintained. She was like a mother to her children promoting cleanliness and discipline to her home as she believed that it is the start of gaining knowledge that they can use as they go outside the school premises. She started three environmental programs that surely keep the school an environment-friendly community. Plastic waste is one of many types of wastes that takes too long to decompose. Normally, plas- tic items can take up to 1000 years to decompose in landfills. Why would we use plastic bags, cups and plastic bottles for it will live longer than human beings can do? Maylinians abolished using any type of plastic wares in their programs called Zero Plastic and Eco-friendly canteen. These programs ban the usage of any plastic material inside the school, especially those that are used in eating inside the canteen. As a substitute to these, students used food paper bags, paper cups and plates that are segregated after being used. Students also learn ‘CLAYGO” or Clean As You GO, where they clean the place they occupied in the canteen before leaving it. In addition, bottled wa- ter that were sold inside the canteen was collected. Colored papers and white papers were properly segregated in each classroom for it will be sold in the Power Store in exchanged with cleaning ma- terials that may be used in every classroom. Power store is a program that encourages students to collect recyclable materials in exchange to a cleaning material for each piece that each classroom can use in the entire school year. These are some of the projects initiated by our principal which make Mayapyap National High School more conducive to learning. Now as I walk through the aisle of every pathway, I don’t see them. Edges of the walls were clean. Floors are now a bit spilled of the dust not of those sticky beverages. I can now smell the breeze of the fresh air not of those stinky flavored sauces. Change has come. Maylinians are now living greener and cleaner. MNHS: Disaster ready! schools to implement DRRM, which could enhance existing By: Ardee Roa M. Pulido practices or require new ones.
