More research studies published by Batch 2019

An increase in the number of research studies produced by senior high school students were published this year making their studies more meaningful and relevant. This was observed with the release of the second volume of Poverello Research Journal of LSQC Senior High School.

A total of 11 research outputs of Batch 2019 graduates were published this year. This meant more quality research outputs in their Research/Capstone Project and Inquiries, Immersions and Investigations courses were produced by the second batch of SHS Lourdesian graduates.

The Poverello is an annual peer-reviewed journal published by the Senior High School of Lourdes School Quezon City. It publishes quality research outputs of students and faculty in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), humanities and social sciences (HUMSS), accountancy, business and management (ABM) as well as in education, language, religious and cultural studies. The idea of coming up with a research journal stems from the school’s vision of forming young minds as active players in knowledge construction through research.


The second volume published this year contains both community and school-based multi-disciplinary research studies. LSQC believes that research undertakings should always be geared at improving or benefitting the lives of the people especially those from the marginalized sectors of the society. This year’s multi-disciplinary community- based researches were anchored on the senior high school faculty and student-led Project Resilience for its adopted community Barangay Paang Bundok, Quezon City. Research studies that were produced in this context were aimed at empowering the barangay on disaster risk readiness, reduction and resilience.

On the other hand, school-based research studies focused on contributing to the school’s continuing efforts to improve efficiency, effectivity and productivity. Research problems or proposed capstone projects of students were based on actual needs and proper consultation with stakeholders.

SHS Assistant Principal for Academic Affairs Mr. Marvin De Pano shared, “There were a lot of quality outputs from this batch that were worthy of publication. It also helped that we were able to work on the preparation of the research journal early March, so the research groups were given time to revise their work and the proofreaders had more time to edit papers.” He also credited the editorial board who also took time to review the entries. “Some members of the editorial board were able to see most of the entries early since they served as judges for the Outstanding Research Award.”, he added.

Mr. De Pano also lauded the efforts of the layout editor Joaquin Teng of Batch 2019. “He was committed to deliver on time. His hard work and focus were truly commendable.”

The second volume was published last April 30 though there are only limited copies. “The research journals included in this volume will, however, be included in the Poverello Online to be launched in July.”, shared by Mr. De Pano.
