Incoming Grade 2 student Sylar Alcantara placed 3rd in the Alaska Ironkids Aquathlon 6-8 years old category held in Vermosa last May 12, 2019. Though he was in 9th place out of more than 20 kids that got out of the water in the 100m swim, he didn’t lose hope. Focused and determined, Sylar  overtook five other kids and caught up with the leaders during the run leg. He then suddenly had a burst of speed and sprinted all the way to the finish line to finish 3rd, proving that strength comes from within and can conquer any obstacle or pain.
