altAfter 20 years of dormancy in the annual street dancing competition, Davao City National High School finally bested 8 other entries and named Champion in the Davao School-Based Category in the recently concluded Indak-Indak sa Kadayawan contest held at San Pedro Square held on August 19, 2017, Saturday.

    The winning group named Sining Sayon Dawet Cultural Ensemble composed of close to 150 students under Special Program in the Arts of the school pocketed a total of P 515,000.00 cash prizes as the grand prize winner, including the Best in Musicality award.

    Performers from Sta. Ana National High School settled in second place while selected pupils of Buhisan Elementary School garnered the third place.

    DCNHS performers spent 21 days for the entire preparation and rehearsals for the said contest powered by the motivation to outdo the school’s ranking in 1997 where City High was adjudged third place winner.

    Edmund Superada, the Production Manager, together with Melchien Garcia, the Contingent Manager, Arturo Ensalada, the Artistic Director, Agustin Santos III, Michael Sayman, and Ronald Rosello, the choreographers, and Leo Alimasag, the Musical Director paved the way for City High’s comeback victory.

    Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte – Carpio personally handed the trophy and the ceremonial check to Dr. Wenefredo E. Cagape, Principal IV of DCNHS, who also graced the awarding ceremonies.

    Moreover, Gian R. Cabrera, a Grade 10 student of Davao City National High School emerged also as the Champion in Davao History Quiz Bee in connection with the celebration of the 32nd Kadayawan Festival held at Cinematheque. He was mentored by veteran coach Brian Caintic, a Social Studies teacher.

    On the other hand, City High’s entry to Tunog Kadayawan bagged the third place and People’s Choice Award coached by Elena Gementiza and Eddie Cadelenia at Abreeza Mall on the same date while the school’s pride in Visual Arts, an SPA student, grabbed the second place in Mugna Kadayawan.

    “We just wanted our students to perform happily; winning was just a plain reward, not a goal,” quipped Melchien Garcia, the Contingent Manager.
