The Pathfinder Club exhibited an extraordinary performance that made them able to get the rating they never had expected, a Rating of 97.75%. The Faculty and staff really felt very happy of the performance made by the Pathfinders, but it was the Pathfinder themselves who rejoiced very much of what they have done, and of course with the Director of the club Mr. John Aaron Mercader.
The next day, the team proceeded to inspect Mount Olive Laymen’s Academy at Mt. Olive , Bayugan City, a school in the mountain but with smart Pathfinders. The young and cute Pathfinder Director Mr.Jemar Albor is new to his position being a neophyte teacher but he showed an exemplary performance with his Pathfinder Club officers and members. The Pathfinder’s office has long telescope, a very nice gadget used by Pathfinders in any of their activities which is donated by one of the Brethren who works abroad . It added points to the club. The inspection lasted only for the whole morning . The club were very eager to finish it with much strength and courage and therefore gotten a very inspiring excellent rating of 95.96% . The pathfinders , the school administration , the faculty, and the members of the school board and parents greatly rejoiced of the overwhelming result.
