·2 min read

LILOAN-BASED GT Northeast Academy (GTNA) has expanded its learning facility by investing in its own recreational and event center to help widen students’ horizons beyond the classroom setting.

The GTNA-Recreational and Even Center will serve as a training ground for GTNA students where they could learn and experience actual industry training.

GTNA school director Jonathan Aaron Salvane said the facilities at the center such as its hotel rooms will give their students a glimpse of the actual operations in the hospitality industry.

“In terms of our Technology and Livelihood Education curriculum, we are eyeing giving our students a hands-on experience. We hope to use the hotel as a venue for our students to learn practical and on-field skills on business management that they can use in the future,” he said.

The recreation and event center boasts 10 hotel rooms – deluxe, suite and connecting rooms. It also has a function hall that can accommodate up to 120 people and a restaurant.

Other amenities also include a semi-olympic pool that can cater to training and competitions; a lagoon pool and a jacuzzi-style pool.

Salvane said they want to make the center a venue for swimming lessons which will be integrated into the PE curriculum of the students of GTNA. Its event areas will also be secondary venues where the school can hold its activities and seminars.

“In the future, we also plan to hold swimming competitions here to create a competent swimming community in Liloan. Who knows, maybe the next swimming olympian of the Philippines would come from our community,” he said.

For the public to also enjoy its amenities, Salvane said they are opening the facility for the community to use. He said the center offers customizable packages for events and parties.

Salvane said the school continues its pursuit of discovering and training brilliant students in the northeastern part of Cebu. The new facility will serve as a marketing strongpoint for the school in enticing new enrollees.

GTNA, he said, aims to be the B.E.S.T. – Business, Entrepreneurial, Science, and Technology -- school in Cebu by 2025. This is anchored on the school’s strong adherence to science and technology research, business entrepreneurship and the multi-discipline of social sciences.
