Attendance is a must
NSTP CW1 requires the students to spend twenty-four (24) Hours of Service spread through 8 Saturdays in our community which is the Phase 7, Bagong Silang, Caloocan City.

With this achievement, we may say that these students are really enthusiastic when it comes to implementing their plan for the community.
