Eton International School has opened its newest branch located inside the prestigious grounds of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP).
Eton International School-CCP stands proudly amongst landmark structures—the Folk Arts Theatre in its north, the Coconut Palace on the east and bordered in the south by the Manila Bay, world-renowned for its spectacular sunrise and glorious sunsets.
A grand opening event was held last Tuesday at ETON CCP Manila Campus. Participants included their school administrators and teachers, as well as bloggers, parents, and students.
Ms. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, Eton International School Directress, made an opening speech about the reasons why Eton stands among the best. She shared that at Eton International School, students are not only taught academically. They’re also taught practical living and life skills to empower them to be great leaders someday.
“ETON is the school of the future where learning happens beyond the four walls of the classrooms. It is a place where kids will feel safe to learn, grow and multiply their talents exponentially,” said Ms. Jacqueline Marzan-Tolentino, Eton International School Directress.
ETON has created three pioneering programs—the Center for the Talented and Gifted for the pre-schoolers; Center for Leadership and Performing Arts for grade school and Center for Technology and Innovation for high school.
“What sets ETON apart is how we nurture the leadership potential in each child. Our mantra is every child is a leader and every child can be a hero waiting to be unleashed. We take time out to know about the child’s strength and weaknesses so that we can match our teaching style to our students’ learning style. This allows the students to learn, faster, better and higher. Eton International family culture allows students to grow and create better relationships in their family and community. It only takes love to break all barriers in the mind, heart and soul. With our multiple local and international programs, each child is given the chance to find his gifts, strengthen their resiliency and build their confidence,” Tolentino adds.
Some of the parents gave testimonials on why they trust Eton International School in providing good quality education for their children.
Also, a short activity or Learning Style Profile Assessment was given by Ms. Jacqueline. ETON uses this assessment to determine if the child is either an analytical or global learner, so that they can customize a special learning program to each of their students.
Whether they’re global or analytical learners, they help their students to learn and acquire new skills, enabling them to focus on each child's individual strengths and build confidence.
Each person’s individual learning style is different, but it all sums up to a one-of-a-kind individual whom God created. That being said, I believe that acceptance and unconditional love are important to any child’s successful development. Being a global or analytical learner does not make a child smarter or more capable than another. That's why I'm glad to know that the teachers at ETON are flexible and do not rigidly compartmentalize their students.
I took the test and I found out that I am both an analytical or global type of person. Analytical because I can be a perfectionist at times. I also like working in cold temperature, without music, and can finish a work in one sitting. I prefer working in a brightly lit room or even with dim lights as long as I can comfortably see. I'm also a global learner because I usually chill, party and relax after finishing a task.
Speaking of chillaxing, we enjoyed the Manila Bay sunset cruise after taking the Assessment Test. And yes, there's nothing like a beautiful sunset to end an amazing day with my daughter and these lovely ladies.
THE ETON EDUCATION
Tolentino further explained that the Eton school philosophy is that “Every child is born with Royal Dignity.”
“We believe the gifts and calling of each child is irrevocable. A child’s worth is built in. It is our mission to open their mind to possibilities, strengthen their competency and skills and inculcate values that will set them for life,” she adds.
Eton’s motto is Artes (Heart), Scientia (Mind) and Intelligentia(Will or Spirit).
“Every child is nurtured to inspire, to innovate and to lead a life in honor of God and service to humanity. Every Etonian leads with humility, courage and heart,” Tolentino said.
Eton prides itself of its small class size that allows them to focus on the development of each child’s multiple intelligence especially in the crucial foundation years. Tolentino describes this as strengthening their roots to allow the children to be resilient as they grow and bloom and ready to conquer the world.

“These are leaders who are creative, critical, caring, compassionate, communicative, collaborative, confident, country loving and cross cultural,” she says. “We refer to these as the care values embedded in each child.”
“He dreams big by taking small steps. A small act of courage to press on towards his dream to lead his generation to a better life.

Do you always feel exhausted, stressed out, pagod, at puyat, to the point that it's already affecting your productivity and the ability to do things you enjoy?
You might not notice it yet, but these are signs that your body is aging faster than it should be. This is called premature aging, and it may be quietly slowing you down.
Here are some of the factors that lead to premature aging:
Poor eating and sleeping habits
High intake of sugar, salt and fat is the reason why many people suffer from cardiovascular diseases. It’s not just what you do, it’s also what you put in your body. And by making healthy choices, your body age can actually be younger than your real age.
Compromising our food choices because of our busy lifestyle
Sitting in your desk the whole day keeps us inactive. Indeed, movement or any kind of exercise or physical activity is very important in order to have a healthy lifestyle.
So do you want to know the secret to staying young?
The secret to staying young is in good bones, because if you have good bones, you can move, you can walk and avoid getting tired easily.
Also, it is super important to have milk in your diet even at adult age, even if you are beyond 50 and up. Low- bone density and poor muscle mass brought about by lack of calcium and protein may affect one’s ability to stay active and to keep up with day-to-day challenges.
Get moving and push yourself to do more. And the more you do, the more you need Anlene. With 2x more calcium vs. regular milk, it's the only milk with collagen and high protein, which is good not only for your face and skin but also is very important to support your joints.
For moms like me, the hustle never stops. And now that I’m almost 40, there are times na I feel exhausted, stressed out, at puyat, to the point that it's already slowing me down and affecting my productivity. Little did I know that signs na pala ito ng premature aging. That's why I realized that I have to do more and be more active. It’s so important to take care of our health, not to look good but to stay healthy and live long enough so that we can be there for our friends, family and especially for our kids. I refuse to go back to that unhealthy mom who couldn’t handle being active with my kids. I know I slacked off a lot of times but I'm still trying to be more active, and yep, fight being lazy na din. But it’s not just what you do, it’s also what you put in your body.
So, to amp up my energy, I usually start my day with Anlene White Coffee. Sarap ng milk with the delicious taste of coffee and the strength of Anlene with Movemax. I also like that its caffeine level is a little less than the standard 3-in-1 coffee. Iis #MoreThanMilk with its new look and Movemax formulation. With just two glasses of Anlene, I can get the recommended intake of calcium for strong bones, more protein for muscles, and collagen for joints and nicer skin.
Ang #SarapMagUmpisa ng araw pag masarap and masustansya ang kape. And whether you're out with family or working out, don't forget to bring your Anlene ready-to-drink pack so you can do more everyday.
Anlene is available in ready-to-drink tetra packs, as well as powdered milk in plain, chocolate, and the new White Coffee flavor, in all leading supermarkets, groceries, drugstores and convenience stores nationwide, as well as Lazada. Visit www. Anlene.com.ph.

This Mother’s Day, celebrate the love your mother has given you all your life by giving her the gift of health. There may never be a gift that could repay all the care she poured out onto you, but you can help her take steps towards living a long and fruitful life with a healthcare plan.
For moms like me, do not forget to care yourself too the same way you do for your husband and your children. It’s important for you to take care of yourself first so that you can do the same for others.
Also, I just discovered Maria Health, an online one-stop-shop health platform that provides simple and easy to access healthcare to every Filipino. Maria Health offers an extensive selection of healthcare plans for mothers to get on top of their health.

It is the brainchild of Chinese-American entrepreneur Vincent Lau, who left a startup in Silicon Valley to tackle a severe problem he saw in the Philippines: healthcare. It’s estimated that only 5% of the Philippines’s 100 million population are medically insured because of lack of access to providers. The platform set out to solve this problem by inviting some of the country’s top providers such as Maxicare, PhilCare, and AsianLife to pool their healthcare plans online where they can reach everyone.
In 2018, Maria Health marked an important milestone having welcomed half a million visitors to the site and having served over 14,000 customers since its launch, which include freelancers, overseas workers, business owners, health enthusiasts, and mothers. Its market continues to grow driven by the platform’s commitment to impact at least 1 million Filipino lives.

Mothers are known to bring life to the world. They are our source of warmth when everything feels cold, our light when the road seems dark, and our shelter when all else turn against us. All their hardships that molded us into what we are today are truly a gift that we should always be thankful for.
Take the case of these millennial mothers. When it comes to dealing with their children, there’s no denying that parenting can be challenging sometimes. But with the right approach in resolving issues, being a mother can also come with sweet, motivating rewards.
QUESTION: As a millennial mom, what are the challenges that involve your children and what are your efforts to resolve them?
Mela Cervantes Abrera, 32, is a woke millennial and a proud stay-at-home mom. Her hobbies include taking care of her cats and her two lovely children. She’s a mental health advocate from various mental health support groups in the Philippines.
Her being a mental health advocate is helpful in handling her children well even when it comes to their nutrition. According to Mela, although her first-born daughter never had any problems with food, her son, on the other hand, is diagnosed with a feeding disorder called ARFID (Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder).
“Most people tag him as "maarte" or "spoiled." He had to undergo Occupational Therapy for a year with the help of a psychologist and a nutritionist. He gained weight and is now at the right height and BMI for his age,” Mela narrated. “It's very difficult making most people understand it, but my priority is making sure he is healthy and doesn't associate food with any anxiety or negative thoughts—not what other people think.”
Niña Defensor is an indoor rowing instructor, makeup artist, cosmetic tattoo artist, and mom to an almost-3-year-old girl. Her daughter spends a lot of time using gadgets, which can sometimes be a problem.
Despite her efforts to control her daughter’s exposure to technology, she had to give in and allow her 2 to 3 hours of screen time a day. Even with that allowance, however, there was still a struggle in controlling her daughter’s technological cravings.
“Gadgets are accessible everywhere these days and are being used at her school for educational purposes. It’s become the norm for her. So when screen time is over, the tantrums begin,” Niña shared. “As a single mom with no nanny, I work a lot and use the computer most of the time. Whenever she sees me exposing myself to technology, she tries to express that it’s not fair—which is true! So finding the right balance, the correct words, and the right energy to explain to your 2.9-year-old, the circumstances are quite the challenge.”
During her 4th year in college, Diana Barrientos, 21, got pregnant with her son. According to her, the journey to motherhood wasn’t easy for her especially when she and her husband faced a financial crisis.
She had to sell homemade spicy carbonara online to augment her husband’s take-home pay and provide for their daily expenses and maternity needs.
Although Diana admits that she’s not fully aware of her options for her child’s future financial plan, her willingness to be financially literate and her eagerness to profit from her spicy carbonara business are what make her a wiser millennial mom.
“Aware naman ako, pero hindi masyado. Mag-oopen sana ako ng account kaso busy sa thesis dati. Siguro ‘pag may stable work na ‘ko or pagkakakitaan, magtatabi ako para sa future niya.” said Diana.
These WonderMoms all have their own ways of overcoming the struggles they face with their children, whether it has to do with their nutrition, exposure to technology, or their finances. That's why BDO offers various services to help these moms cope amid all these challenges.
To help moms teach their kids proper money habits like saving in a bank, BDO Unibank offers a Junior Savers Account for kids age 12 and below. For as low as P100, moms can open an account for their kids age 0-12 years at any BDO branch, and it will start earning interest upon reaching P2,000 in deposit balance.
Moms can even arrange regular contribution into their child's account through its Easy Saver feature that allows the automatic transfer of a preset amount from an existing BDO account to the Junior Savers Account.
In addition, with BDO’s weekend banking, extended banking hours, and electronic banking service, moms can allot time to do their banking transactions even while they are busy taking care of their children, doing some errands, or swamped with work.
BDO takes inspiration from the best: moms who always find ways to help those that they care for the most.
This Mother's Day, let us not forget to thank our moms for all the love and support they have given & constantly give us. A mother is the most selfless person in the world, and they deserve to be reminded of that everyday & to know that we are beyond grateful for them.
A mother’s unceasing love and devotion deserves more than just a simple treat that’s why Novotel Manila Araneta Center has prepared a special day for all wonder wo-moms.

If you're a mom, you’ve probably wondered what a zero-worries life is like, and asked the question, “Am I living my life with zero worries?” Well, today I thought I’d share how the Best Ever Joy can keep a mom's life worry-free, so you can finally have your answer once and for all.
So let's start with a simple FACT. A mom’s life is full of worries! I’ll admit it. I’ve said the words "What if" and "Hala! Paano na?" aloud or thought them many times.
And I’m guessing you have, too.
Moms not only worry about what could go wrong in their lives but also what could go wrong in everyone else's lives. They also worry about the germs and grease that stick to their pots, plates, glasses and lunch boxes. They worry about the family budget and if the household items they buy are the best in quality and cost.
When worry strikes, it prevents us from being the mother we want to be. But wait, papatalo ba tayo sa stress and worries, mga momshies? Instead of worrying and thinking how bad your problem is, think of how great it is to lead a zero-worries life. It could always be better, so it's super important to look at your worries and problems from a different perspective.
If today seems like the Monday-est Tuesday ever, be happy, because you are one day closer to the weekend!
If you feel exhausted and tired in the morning, be grateful that you have the rest of the day to rest, re-energize and do the best you can and that’s what truly matters!
If you have a dirty kitchen counter and crumbs under the table, remember that there are quality products for your home to help you out so you can make your home a happy place for your children to be.
If you have dirty dishes, be grateful, because many people don’t even have clean plates to eat from.
Super dame talagang worries that steal our peace and happiness. Negative thoughts that fill our minds with doubt and our hearts with fear. But guess what? With the new Best Ever Joy, all those worries can be washed away!
Doing the dishes is now easier, faster and better because of HOD, the powerful ingredient in Best Ever Joy. HOD is an amphiphilic polymer that locks in grease better and prevents it from attaching again to dishes when rinsing plates, sponge, sink and hands. This innovative new formula promises ZERO SEBO* as the new Best Ever Joy breaks grease faster and more efficiently, keeps grease suspended in the wash solution, and rinses off more quickly. This also results in the powerful cleansing suds lasting longer and preventing the need for more product on the sponge.
Parents and children can now quickly wash up after eating and spend more time bonding together. Because of the powerful new formula of Best Ever Joy, moms and dads are assured of ZERO SEBO — even though they used less product and spent less time washing, the plates are still completely clean of grease and germs.
That means #ZeroWorries worries over time, energy, cleanliness, and budget. And remember, momsh, you are one drop away from leading your Best Ever, Zero-Sebo and Zero-Worries Life because of the new Best Ever Joy!
The new Best Ever Joy comes in a limited offer of only Php99 for the 495ml bottle. Joy is available at all supermarkets, grocery stores and convenience stores nationwide. Joy is a quality product of Proctor & Gamble. For more information and updates on promos, follow their Facebook page, www.facebook.com/JoyPhilippines.
“Maging masinop ka lang pagdating sa pera, kahit gaano man kalaki or kaliit ang sahod mo, kapag may goal ka makakapagipon ka,” said Antesa Paraon, one of the four lucky winners of a Honda Civic Sedan under RCBC and RCBC Savings Bank’s (RSB) Deposit and Drive promo” said Antesa Paraon, winner of a Honda Civic Sedan under RCBC and RCBC Savings Bank’s (RSB) Deposit and Drive promo.
Paraon has been an RCBC depositor for five years under payroll and is an advocate of saving for the future. She said whenever her pay gets credited, she withdraws enough to sustain her for the week and rest is left in her savings account. She also deposits to her bank account every time she gets her share from the company’s “employee fund”. An employee fund is pooling system that she and fellow workers have put together to help each other save some of their hard-earned money. “Gusto ko po mabigyan ng magandang buhay yung pamilya ko. Itong kotse po, makakatulong po ito sa hanapbuhay namin,” she said.
Born and raised in Surigao City, Paraon had a tough life growing up. She went to Manila when she was 20 years old to look for jobs. It was not until 2013 when she found a company that gave her tenure and regularized her employment.
Paraon was a machine operator in one of the facilities in Laguna Technopark for three years and was promoted to technician two years ago.
According to Paraon, this was when she started saving funds for herself, her future, and her family.
“Nag-iipon po ako kasi naniniwala ako na dun ako pwede magsimula na maghanda para sa kinabukasan ko at ng pamilya ko,” Paraon added.
This year, RCBC and RCBC Savings Bank’s Deposit and Drive promo will give away 8 more brand new cars to lucky corporate and personal account holders. This promo encourages accountholders to deposit on their RCBC and RSB accounts for a chance to win a brand new Honda Civic sedan or an Isuzu mu-X SUV. New and existing accountholders can still join until May 31, 2019.
