Last November 21 to 26, 2017, ICI – Iligan joined the 15thIligan City Computing Fair (ICCF) with a theme “Collaboration and Innovation for Inclusive Growth.”;  the said event was held in different locations in Iligan City. The event was headed by Sir Dean Ernesto Empig of the MSU-IIT School of Computer Studies with the newly revived Information and Communications Technology (ICT) Council. The week-long event was a huge success as it was actively participated by the local government, national government, private organizations, businesses and the academe.

The 6-day ICCF event launched with a two-day ICT Job Fair and ICT Exhibit Fair on November 21 to November 22, 2017 at Robinson’s Place, Iligan.  The participants of the ICT Exhibit Fair were not only from our local ICT institutions or homegrown BPOs, but also companies from Cagayan de Oro City and Zamboanga City.  Likewise, the employers or the hiring agencies of the ICT Job Fair were from a well-known call-centers/BPOs from BGC, Taguig City, Cebu City, and Cagayan de Oro City.

On November 23, 2017, the third day of the 15th ICCF, hundreds of students from St. Michael’s College (SMC), Iligan Capitol College (ICC), and Iligan Computer Institute (ICI) gathered at St. Michael’s College Auditorium to attend the Cyber Security Seminar.  One of the speakers provided information on what are the common attacks a hacker can do and how to protect their personal data email address, address or residence, credit card or bank details, contact numbers, and even passwords.

On the 4th day, November 24, 2017, selected students of St. Michael’s College (SMC), Iligan Computer Institute (ICI), Iligan Capitol College (ICC) attended the IT Forum held at St. Michael’s College Conference Hall from 9 o’clock in the morning to 12 noon. The IT Forum was aimed to guide students with the skills currently in demand for freelancing and employment.  The preliminaries of the Electronic Sports (DOTA Competition) and the Digital Arts Competition were held at our school Iligan Computer Institute (ICI), while the Open Programming Competition was held at St. Michael’s College (SMC). The events were participated by different schools not only in Iligan City but also with some participants from Ozamis City and Cagayan de Oro City.

The final round of the Electronic Sports (DOTA) Competition was held at Robinson’s Iligan on November 25, 2017, and an amazing crowd gathered watching and cheering for the gamers. The said event would not be that successful if not for the big LED monitor provided under the committee of Cong.  Jake Balanay and of our very own ICI President, Mr. Ladislao Tabanao Jr., for the computers and accessories.

The 6-day ICCF ended at Robinson’s Iligan on November 26, 2017. Councilors Demosthenes Plando, Bunz Lim, and Jake Balanay graced the event.  The winners were awarded during the said event.  That was a huge success.  Congratulations to all the winners, job well done to all the participants.

PING also covers ICI-related events and makes write-ups both News and Features. For the students, PING Publication is our venue where we can share our aspirations, inspirations, or even our efforts and struggles in school life.  Ping hears and publishes your stories.

Being chosen as one of the PING in this school, it is such a wonderful privilege and honour together with my Co-Pingsters enticing this Organization. For our PING Adviser, Ma’am Bevs Kintanar thank you for inviting us to be part of the PING Publication, but then we are so thankful and we would like to express our gratitude for helping and supporting us.  You always inspire us and patiently waiting, you never leave unfulfilled on us, that’s how we feel your love for us.

ICI-Iligan Champions Danztrack Competition

       ICI-Iligan Danztrack champs with friends


“ What does it take to be a champion? Desire, dedication, determination, concentration and the will to win”

Iligan Computer Institute brought home the bacon for being the champion in DANZTRACK HANGOVER 16 Teachers’ category held at the   MSU-IIT Gymnasium in celebration with the Diyandi Festival. They also got the minor award Best in Costume for the teachers category. This was held last September 23, 2017.

Motivated with ICI’s AVP, Jerrum M. Suaring, a dancer himself; and with the inclusions of the newly hired young, energetic, active teachers, ICI confidently enlisted the newly formed performers. They reap what they sow in practicing for a month – blocking, memorizing, synchronizing, coordinating and perfecting until the D day.  They are hopeful and determined despite of limited resources; but it paved its way as “The Champions”.  It was the first time ICI joined the contest, and they got the victory.  The school is definitely proud of them.

On September 27, 2017 students of ICI-Iligan Practical Nursing together with the Iligan City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office (CDRRMO) posted in a strategic place during the Street Dancing Competition held in Iligan City hall, Amphitheatre. They were tasked to assist clients/patients in time of emergencies in getting vital signs in case inevitable incident that will arise on the above-mentioned activities.  The students came with Ms. Love Joy S. Soriano and Drixine Baliguat (PN Trainors) as early as 4 o’clock in the morning in order to be in a location accessible to the public viewing the activity.  This was their best time to really practice and immerse in a real life situation in providing care in a way of getting people’s vital sign while Street Dancing was on going.  Proactivity is better than reactivity.

Buwan ng Wika 2017 sa ICI-Iligan

Nakasanayan na natin na sa tuwing sasapit ang Buwan ng Agosto ay ipinagdiriwang ang Buwan ng Wika; na kung saan ipinagmalaki natin ang ating sariling Wika, at binibigyang pugay.

Noong nakaraang Agosto 1, 2017, nagkaisa ang buong ICI sa pagbukas ng Buwan ng Wika na sa temang “Filipino: Wikang mapagbago.” Ito ginanap sa ICI Annex 1, Activity center.

Pinapangunahan ito ng introduksyon ng mga matitipunong Ginoong wika at magagandang Binibining  Wika sa bawat blocks o kurso ay may pambato.

Nagkaroon rin ng pagtitinda ng iba’t ibang kakanin. Bilang Pilipino kailangan rin natin ipagmalaki  ang ating mga pagkaing Pinoy.

Ang pagbukas ng selebrasyon sa Buwan ng Wika ay naging matagumpay. Dahil sa kooperasyon ng bawat isa, at dahil rin sa pangunguna ni Gng. Gianne O. Paras, Faculty and staff at sa suporta ng Filipino Club sa pangunguna ni Jan Illustre.

Ang bawat isa ay umuwing may ngiti sa kanilang mga mukha at memorableng pagbubukas ng Buwan ng wika.
