It’s not fun saying good bye.

First to leave on March 15 for Vietnam is the Vietnamese student Bui Minh Tam, whom everyone fondly calls Pamela. She studied at the College for six months as a way for her to better equip herself with English language skills. These skills will help her compete in the cutthroat job market of Ho Chi Minh City, she said.
“It is sad to leave the Philippines and ALC because I have made good friends here. I love how the school is not only a good place to learn English but also a place where I feel at home even though home is a thousand of miles away,” said Tam.
To say good bye to Tam, the school showed again a short film titled “The Red Shawl,” a horror movie, where Pamela starred as part of the 4th Cycle 2016 Culminating Program.
On Friday, five sister Religious of the Notre Dame of the Missions (RNDM) said their farewell to the students and teachers of ALC.
The four Bangladeshi sisters (Happy, Trisna, Sume, and Rikta) and a Vietnamese sister (Bich Van) will take part in a counselling class after their stint at ALC.

“This short stay at ALC will leave a very happy spot in my memory. I have improved my Engish despite the short stay, and I make very good friends along the way,” said Sr. Happy.
