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

‘Biggest St. Ignatius statue in the world’ now kneels in Ateneo de Iloilo grounds

HUNDREDS OF members of the Atenean community have witnessed the historic unveiling of the giant St. Ignatius statue in the façade of Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS in San Rafael, Mandurriao district, last July 25.

“This is, unless proven otherwise, the biggest St. Ignatius statue in the world,” said by internationally acclaimed sculptor Ed Defensor during the inaugural rites. “This is also one of the few images that shows the younger and more historically accurate version of the founder of the Society of Jesus when he offered his sword to the Lady in Montserrat in 1522 in his early 30s after his spiritual conversion.”

Ateneo de Iloilo jins bag medals for Ph

IN LESS THAN two weeks, Ateneo’s Taekwondo Team grabbed several medals in three major tournaments, including the 9th World Taekwondo Culture Expo held at Taekwondo-Won Stadium in Muju-Jeollabukdo, South Korea last July 10-15, 2015.

 Twin brothers Laurence Izaiah Firmeza of Grade 6-Xavier and Lance Izaak Firmeza of Grade 6-Borgia managed to rake four international medals for the country topping powerhouse USA, Australia, Korea, and Thailand. Laurence won silver in poomsae and bronze in kyurugi while Lance got bronze in poomsae and silver in kyurugi in their respective categories.

 More than 500 taekwondo jins from 25 countries all over the world competed in this international tournament held in the birthplace of Taekwondo itself.

 To note, poomsae is a Korean word which means “form.” A jin is judged according to how he or she delivers recognized taekwondo forms in terms of mastery, balance, expression of energy and accuracy in your leg and hand movements. Kyurugi, on the other hand, is the sparring version. It is somehow the “measure of the opponent’s power with one’s own technique.
