Functional Basic Education (FBE)
This Program is parallel with the MBE except that it is designed mainly for adolescents. teens and older students.More emphasis will be placed integrating academic instruction into practical situations through the Transition Education Program (TEP). Integrated in the TEP are selected academic competencies pertinent to academic subjects that are aligned with the child's current grade level.
Modified Basic Education (MBE)
This program is composed of young students with exceptionalities who are receptive to academic instruction but whose learning capacity and pace may be different compared to other children. This program will offer academic subjects mandated by the Department of Education according to the child's grade level. However, emphasis will only be placed on compentecies that are practical and achievable given the child's needs. Moreover, lessons pertinent to transitioning will already be introduced. To make the learning process more efficient, the students will be grouped according to factors such as their skills, diagnosis, needs, demeanour, age, physique and interests.
As an ultimate exercise of fun and learning, the 6th ILLC Friendship Cup was held on January 30, 2009 at the Camp Crame Gymnasium. There were three teams: Red Dragons, Orange Tigers and Yellow Lions. The program started with a Lighting of the Torch headed by Kenny Sy, Nelson Briones, Timothy Roy Israel, Michael Chang, and Paco De Leon. It was a whole day of fun activities, vigorous obstacles and dynamic games that surely fired up all the teams.
Each team prepared set of cheers to boost their team‘s morale. In the end, the Orange Tigers bested the other two teams, garnering First Place in ten of eighteen games, seconded by the Red Dragons while third prize over-all goes to the Yellow Lions. Congratulations, Orange Tigers Team!
