Guidance Counselor Ms. Laurice A. Torres of the Department of Education (DepEd) was invited as guest-discussant during the symposium. She expounded on the importance of acquiring effective learning styles, how to be motivated and on how to set goals.

Vice President for Student and External Affairs Napoleon Mangente said, “This forum is important inasmuch as aside from the academic subjects which students take inside the classrooms, they are afforded the opportunity to gain insights on how to conduct and carry themselves when they mingle with other people and the acquisition of the ideal attitude towards their studies and work , especially after they graduate from this institution”.

The audience was enthusiastic and they showed interest in learning new knowledge imparted by the resource person.

From time to time, the school invites speakers even from outside the campus to beef-up the knowledge of students and especially the maritime cadets.

An open forum ensued after the resource person finished her discourse. This gave the students a chance to clarify issues which they did not fully understand during the talk but were given ample answers at this portion of the symposium.

As a matter of policy, a very strict medical requirement, including drug testing is being observed by the school before any student is accepted to enroll in the institution.
