A memorandum was circulated earlier today, September 11, stating that there shall be no activities and no interruption of classes one week before major exams (PRELIM, MIDTEM AND FINALS).
Online activities are also prohibited.
Activity Ban Week is implemented so students can focus on academic activities to catch up and complete the coverage needed for the upcoming examination. CWTS and NSTP will continue with their classes or exams on the scheduled Saturdays. Liturgical Celebrations are allowed and tutorials can be done this week.
This move is approved by the School Board and will take effect beginning this first semester, AY 2023-2024.
Aside from the Activity Ban Week, every Friday after a major exam is declared as a Josenian’s Mental Health Day. It will be a Student Activities and Services Day (SAS) or a Recovery Day. There will be no suspension of classes, but there will be various activities organized by Student Organizations, SSC, OSAS, SDPC & CMO.
Activities shall be “in campus”. Organizations shall coordinate with the Office of the Student Affairs & Services (OSAS).
The organizations will closely monitor attendance since Mental Health Day is considered a class day. Those plotted activities shall be adjusted, and organizations must have coordination and collaborative meetings to address possible concerns.
There will be no Activity Letter needed. Students are advised to closely coordinate with Maria Elena Yumang, Student Activity Officer from the OSAS, in securing the Activity Permit Slip to track the activities and the reservation of venues.
Milan Wednesday is temporarily suspended. The Office of the Vice President for Academics and Research will announce if there is a necessity to have a Milan Wednesday.
