A tragedy in two One-Act Plays were performed by actors of Teatro Ateneo before the Senior High School of Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS last Wednesday afternoon, September 28, at the school's Multipurpose Room. The plays, directed by alumnus Hakeem Jimenez and moderator John Anthony Estolloso, were based from the masterpieces of Leoncio Deriada's The Dog Eaters and Albeto Florentino's The World is an Apple. The same was also performed before Junior High School students a month ago. The actors were Mia Gavino, Shaina dela Pena, Valerie dela Rosa, Lanz King, Joshua Belicano, Vincent Legara, Therese Piamone, Marjorie Mae Villanueva, and Majes Pulmones.
SENIOR High School (SHS) students will be given the opportunity to reflect on their possible careers as Ateneo de Iloilo-Santa Maria Catholic School (AdI-SMCS) hold a yearly career talk this afternoon, September 29, at the school’s Multipurpose Room in San Rafael, Mandurriao, Iloilo City.
Entitled “Intelligent Choices: ‘Tricks of the Trade’”, the school invited eight of its alumni in various professions to share their experiences and tips regarding their craft. They are city councilor Hon. Jay Treñas, cosmetic surgeon Dr. W. Michael Pocesion, medical internist Maricel Paniero, dentist, Dr. Ashley Lauren Chu, businessman Pierre Jefferson Go, construction manager Engr. Felvin Gurrea, accountant Alvin Jaen, and private lawyer Cherrie Rose Valenzuela.
Heartstrong Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS Passarelle Team lost by a point against the towering St. Robert's International School quintet, 48-47 in the roller coaster final match held Saturday, September 24 at the Iloilo Sports Complex. Amid the loss, the sixth men on the court--the hundreds of alumni, students, parents, faculty, and friends--raised their hands and sang the school hymn with pride and dignity, a testament to the Jesuit school's sense of community and sportsmanship. Indeed, "win or lose, it's the school we choose!"
Meanwhile, the miniature Ateneo SBP Team also had a valiant charge against the formidable Hua Siong College of Iloilo but went short, 39-33, in the grade school category final match.
We salute all the sixth men for keeping the Ateneo spirit burning against all odds, for tapping the shoulders of their player-schoolmates after the game, and for exiting the sports complex with a graceful smile and a hopeful disposition. We also give our three thumbs-up to our student-athletes, coaches, and players' parents/guardians for their passion to excel and selfless dedication for the team and for the school.
Whatever happens, let us continue to pursue excellence ignited by love and service! In Omnibus Amare et Servire Domino!
