Arroyo as the ATOMOS Adviser, conceptualized the P.O.I.S.E that aims to develop love for science and promote public understanding of science, technology, and environmental protection. It organized an activity and program for students that will showcase their skills and talents by means of their outputs with the help of the ATOMOS adviser and all the science teachers. The club also got its support from Sir John Roldan C. Dimaano, Head Teacher I of Science Department and from the School Administration headed by Ma’am Lina M. Laguras, School Principal III.
The objectives of this event were obtained. This provided opportunity for the talented and creative students for the nourishing and nurturing their skills and talents through a science exhibit. POISE, showcase outputs/performance task by students from different grade level (G7-SHS). The said outputs were collected by the Science teachers and displayed in the assigned area in the laboratory. The teachers added festive designs and manipulative activities to catch the interest of each visitor and make it more enjoyable.
The P.O.I.S.E program was attended by Mrs. Rosiel S. Rosales, EPS and the school principal, Mrs. Lina M.
