GIST is back to reclaim the much coveted and hard-earned title for the 2nd year in a row.
Gateways Institute of Science and Technology is the Gold Medalist for both Cooking and Restaurant Service at the 2023 NCR Regional Skills Competition. This is a three-day competition that took place at the TESDA Women’s Center from December 18-20, 2023.
The Skills Competition by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority or TESDA is an annual competition wherein different TVET schools from all over the country compete and demonstrate their students’ competencies in specific vocational skills using task and industry-based scenarios. The Gold Medalist of each participating Region would then be the representative in the National Skills Competition, wherein the final winner will then represent the Philippines in the ASEAN Skills Competition.
And for two years in a row, GIST has been awarded the Gold Medalist in the NCR Regional Skills Competition.
The pride of GIST lies in Marc Daniel Dagon, Gold Medalist in Cooking, and Jenny A. Ramos, Gold Medalist in Restaurant Service. These GIST students have already been NCR’s Gold Medalists in 2022, but had no plans to relinquish the title and made sure to reclaim that title this 2023.
And along with them, those who are back to prove that they truly are coaches capable of training and producing Gold Medalists are GIST’s pride as well: Cooking Coach John Rudolf C. Tolentino and Restaurant Services Coach Mary Anne U. Coper.
Also assisting in the competition are GIST’s skilled students as well: Assistant for Cooking Carla C. Capa and Assistant for Restaurant Services Rica G. Robles.
The whole GIST Team comprising of the coaches, the competitors and their assistants will now once again be moving up into the National Skills Competition as the proud representative of the National Capital Region.
With the continuous support of GIST’s President and School Director, Jose O. Montenegro; GIST Mandaluyong Branch Head, Ms. Donna V. Remitar; and the entire GIST support team consisting of the management, faculty, staff, and students, GIST continues to be a step closer to the achievable dream of finally competing at the ASEAN Skills Competition, and prove why GIST has been TESDA’s trusted annual representative at the District, Regional, and now National Skills Competition since 2009.
Congratulations to GIST for once again gunning for Gold! Make the school proud, make TESDA proud, and most importantly, make the Philippines proud, at the 2024 National Skills Competition.
