(L-R) SSG Adviser Earl Carlo Cruz, Environmental Committee Chief Albert Andrei Villanueva, Treasurer James David Abiog, Assistant Treasurer Mark Christopher Sy, Secretary Natalio Carlos Benson, External Vice President Denver Enriquez, Public Relations Officer Ramon Enrico Martinez, Environmental Committee Chief Alonzo Gabriel Manaog, Grade 9 Batch Representative Beatrice Pauline Roño, Grade 8 Batch Representative Hana Ysabelli Pevidal, Auditor Abigail Paula Quiroga, President Gabriella Marie Duque, Internal Vice President Beatrice Regio, Grade 10 Batch Representative Francesca Camille Galao, Peace Committee Chief Shekinah Rose Bulanadi, and Grade 7 Batch Representative Akhirah Bint Afghani Alonto.

A relevant and transparent Malayan community is the main goal of this year’s elected president of the Supreme Student Government (SSG) of Malayan High School of Science (MHSS).

Last February 22, the MHSS student body elected Gabriella Marie Duque as student government president for school year 2016-2017.

According to Duque, she envisions a student body that exemplifies the core values: Discipline, Excellence, Commitment, Integrity, and Responsibility (DECIR).

“I envision a student body that understands what it really means to be a Malayan: be leaders in their own right and excel in their chosen scientific and artistic fields,” Duque said. She added that she wants MHSS to be a participative community.

“Malayans should not only be for the school. I see students who are genuinely concerned about and proactive to the needs of the world and that will help in its betterment and effecting good change to the people,” she said.

For their first activity, Duque and the rest of SSG members spearheaded the freshmen orientation to welcome the new students. The SSG also organized an EDM-themed event for the students’ integration night.

“This activity aimed for students in all year levels to interact, get to know each other, build camaraderie, and induce and uplift the Malayan school spirit,” Duque said.

In the future, Duque plans to reintroduce and strengthen the school’s cleanliness campaign. Taking inspiration from previous student councils, this year’s SSG plan to continue the NBT (Newspapers, Bottles, and Tin Cans) project and call it Project Hiwalayan, wherein segregation bins will be placed on each floor of the school.

The SSG also plans to place a scoreboard in the MHSS gymnasium this year.

“Many exciting projects are being discussed and in the works. We are excited and looking forward to the great things in store this year,” concluded Duque.
