MFI supports MaSci’s 1st Ethics Bowl

As part of its Children and Senior Response (CSR) programs, MediCard Foundation supported the "1st Ethics Bowl" of the Manila Science High School last March 14, 2016 as co-sponsor of the event. “Ethics Bowl is a collaborative yet competitive event that encourages students to deepen their understanding and appreciation of compelling and complex ethical and philosophical issues. It also demands that students analyze their reasoning rather than simply hone their rhetorical skills.”

Congratulations to the following Grade 10 students from 9 sections: Champion -Team MANEKILYA; 1st Runner-up – Team LAWCO (Lawrence & Copernicus); 2nd Runner-up – Team ROENSTEIN (Roentgen & Einstein); and 3rd Runner-up – Team FARATOWNES (Faraday & Townes). MFI executive director Mr. Voltaire Victoria served as one of the three judges. Special thanks to the organizers led by Teacher Hazel B. Forastero of MaSci’s Values Education Department.
