Message from the President

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,

Peace!

As you may already know by now, Malacañang has suspended work in all government offices as well as classes in all public schools tomorrow, September 21, 2017.

We at Ateneo de Iloilo - Santa Maria Catholic School shall continue with our classes tomorrow as usual.  We shall also use this day as an opportunity to continue to remember and learn the atrocities of Martial Law perpetuated by the Marcos Regime so that we may know how to prevent them from happening again.  The Social Studies Programs of our GS, JHS and SHS units have prepared various fora for this purpose. I encourage everyone to join and participate in these activities.  

As a Jesuit and Catholic School, let us use this day as an opportunity in exercising our sacred duty and mission to form our students to uphold justice as an integral dimension  and concrete expression of our Christian faith. 

In omnibus amare et servire,

 

Fr. Joseph Y. Haw, S.J.

President 

Music fine-tunes Ateneo curriculum

“WE ARE Ateneans. As such, it is inherent to us to be lovers of humanities and the arts. Music naturally feeds our soul and enlivens our humanity.” Thus said by outgoing Junior High School Associate Principal Dr. Herman Lagon on the integration of Music in the school’s curriculum.

Henceforth, Renan Flores, a pianist and a voice coach, was now tasked to teach Music to the students of Grades 7-9. He will teach Philippine Music to Grade 7 and Southeast Asian to Grade 8. Latin American, African, and Central Asian Music will be the theme of Grade 9.

Flores is a graduate of Don Mariano Marcos Memorial State University in La Union, Pangasinan and has been teaching music to elementary and high school students for years. As a voice coach, he has already lead his mentees win in various national and international competitions.

“I am so excited and blessed of being accepted to teach music in this prestigious school,” Flores said, adding, “I am inspired to squeeze out the best of what our talented Ateneans have for I’m very sure that music forms part of their DNA.”

‘Laudato Si’ challenge accepted

School walks the talk on new encyclical’s call to take care of environment, ‘our common home’

IN RESPONSE to Pope Francis’ encyclical on the environment, Ateneo de Iloilo-Santa Maria Catholic School has invested on structural makeovers that aim to significantly reduce the school’s carbon footprint. This includes the installation of the light-emitting-diode (LED) televisions, retrofitting of the building roof, replacement of the lighting system, and the integration of hydrophonics in the curriculum.

“One year after the promulgation of Laudato Si, the school, for its part, has already made strides—crusading for proper waste disposal and campaigning for the conservation of resources,” Senior High school associate principal Dr. Herman Lagon said, adding, “this, however, must be sustained and should cascade over all members of the community.”

“Thus, the school, through the leadership of Fr. Joseph Haw, is now taking the lead in continuously responding to the call of Laudato Si, even if it means investing much on resources and effort. For example, using LED devices may be expensive, but will eventually lessen our consumption of electricity. In similar reason that we spend much in changing the design of our roofing so we can catch more rain water for use.”

HS has 2 associate principals

IN ORDER to give focus on the relatively distinct thrusts of the Junior High School (JHS) and the newly-installed Senior High School (SHS), the administration has assigned two associate principals for the job.

From the circular inked by school president Fr. Joseph Haw, SJ, Dr. Herman Lagon is now assigned to take charge with the SHS, leaving behind his former position as associate principal for JHS to former mathematics teacher Michel Guevara. Both will be teaming up with high school principal Rosario Dordas to rally the HS Department.

Apparently, the decision of Fr. Haw, in consultation with the different stakeholders of the school, was a response to the need of making sure that the quality of services to be rendered to students is relentlessly cultivated in both the JHS and SHS programs.

Fr. Jhaw said: “I’m quite excited about the newly-formed partnership. I think Ma’am Sarry (Dordas) and Sir H (Lagon) did well in their (previous) administration. And I expect a better performance with the addition of Sir Mike (Guevara).”
