Tomas Avila Andaya Sr. National High School (TAASNHS) held One-Day Culminating Activity dubbed “Business Matter” last April 25, 2024 at TAASNHS Covered Court, Amomokpok, Ragay, Camarines Sur.

This activity aimed to empower students to have a first-hand experience to manage and operate a business, enhance the entrepreneurial character traits and skills, value the subject matter and put into practice the theories learned from the different business subjects specially in Entrepreneurship. Lastly, to motivate students to venture into business.

Said activity was initiated by Entrepreneurship Adviser and Proponent, Ms. Nerie B. Respeto with the guidance and untiring support from our beloved School Head, Mrs. Priscilla A. Martinez, Ph.D alongside with the assistance of the Technical Working Group-Teachers and student members.

Business Matter was participated by One Hundred Thirty-Eight (138) young student entrepreneurs from 12- General Academic Strand (GAS), sections Miya, Freya and Tigreal. A total of Twenty-Six (26) Stalls/Kiosks and Twenty-Six (26) unique and/or innovative products has been offered to its target market.
