The moment that everyone had been waiting for had finally arrived. The HAPI Summer Class Program (HSCP) had a remarkable Recognition Day celebration last May 26, 2017 at the Milenyo Covered Court, Phase 8 North Fairview, Quezon City.
The said event was organized by the Project Head Coordinator of HSCP, Ms. Jean Karla M. Tapao, through the help of volunteers from the Milenyo Youth Council (MYC) and in partnership with Barangay North Fairview. More than 400 people participated in the HSCP Recognition Day including the pupils, parents, volunteers and guests.
