Hundreds of Student Join Enrichment Programs
With the shift in academic calendar from June to August 2016, Enrichment Programs were launched by De La Salle Lipa’s Institute for Advanced Continuing Education (iACE) to develop and enhance the students’ talents and skills, and capability-building.

iACE, in cooperation with Dynamic Training Systems Corporation, conducted the Dynamic Recall Memory Enhancement Training Program: Student Edition in two batches on June 20-24 and July18-22 and the Adult Edition on July 7 and 8. At the Culminating Day, July 23, there were live demonstrations of the participants which were enjoyed not only by the students but also by the parents who are very proud of the students’ newly acquired techniques in memory enhancement.

The Creative Writing Workshop, titled “Unlock Possibilities through Paper and Pen,” was conducted by Pauline L. Navarro, AB Comm Batch 2016, Magna Cum Laude, on June 14-17. She selflessly shared her knowledge and expertise in writing which greatly encouraged the participants to express their creative ideas and thoughts effectively.

French and Mandarin lessons were both facilitated by Connoisseur World Language Institute (CWLI) on June 22-July 29. The culmination day featured French & Mandarin self-introduction by the young Lasallians, including rendition of songs and role playing in foreign languages that proved their basic French & Mandarin proficiency after a few sessions.

In cooperation with Pablo “Jun” Andal, a member of Arnis International Gavileño System and Tapondo International Federation Inc., Arnis and Combat Aikido Training were conducted on June 13-July 15. Participants learned the techniques and the art of self-defense which was demonstrated during the culmination on July 23.

Bringing music to life by the students was successfully held during the recital on July 23. All students rendered their respective songs; some rendered their chosen piece using musical instruments such as piano, violin, guitar & drums. Chosen musically-inclined students were given summer jobs as they were hired as coaches in their field of expertise.

iACE, together with Rommel Quizon, a seasoned choreographer of DLSL Salindayaw Dance Company, held the Hip Hop Dance Concert on July 25. The energetic performances of the students together with the Salindayaw and Green Republic dancers made the event definitely lively. It showed the moves and stage presence they learned from their mentor.

Discovering the beauties of DLSL through the ramp modelling was a great accomplishment of iACE in cooperation with Arvin Daryl Jay Gaffud. Two (2) weeks of preparation for the grand day, July 28, has not been easy for them. Their hard work and dedication to show their real beauty and confidence paid off. At the conclusion of their training, their different looks in casual attire were adored by the viewers.  

Nearly 400 students benefited from the iACE Enrichment Programs and participants looked forward to further their skills and talents and take them to the next level. It had been a fruitful and worthwhile vacation for the participants.

Perez in His CIMC Feat
He may be a freshman in Junior High School, but adjusting to a new set-up is no sweat for one of the members of De La Salle Lipa's elite Math Varsity Team, Angelo Vince Perez, Grade 7, LS 205.

In the most recent China International Mathematics Competition (CIMC), Perez faced other country's bet from July 27 to August 1, 2015 in Changchun, China. Like it was another run-of-the-mill international contest, the young Lasallian won a Silver Medal and other awards for both the individual and team events.

A total of 32 Math wiz kids composed the Philippine delegation that won first runner-up, overall. The country garnered 23 medals in this particular competition.   

Perez's latest feat signifies his clear intention to continue what he has begun in grade school – that is to hone and to put his God-given talent to good use as he sets the bar higher for the next generation of wiz kids.

The DLSL community is overwhelmed with the young Lasallian's ability to consistently bring pride and honor to the school. It would pique one's curiosity at how he manages to constantly deliver. With proper nurturance and love from the parents and the relentless training provided by the mentors, surely, Perez has more to offer wherever his challenges take him.

Shortly after their successful feat in the Division Level of the Science Quest, De La Salle Lipa's grade school Science varsity members, Daniell Matthew Dalangin (Grade 3-BB 104), Angelo Vince Perez (Grade 5-BB 211), and Lila Andrea Vien Hernandez (Grade 6- BB 306), won as well in the Regional Level held on October 26 in Trece Martirez, Cavite.

This level proved to be a bigger challenge to DLSL's team as walk-in participants were accommodated, increasing the number of contestants to almost fifty instead of thirty-six from eighteen divisions in Region IV-A. Nonetheless, Dalangin and Perez placed sixth in the Science Quiz Bee. Although this prevented them from participating in the National Level since it is limited to top five winners, another DLSL representative, Hernandez, emerged as a first runner-up in the Sci-Impromptu event which automatically qualifies her to the next level.    

The 11th National Science Quest held at Teachers' Camp in Baguio City on February 10-12, 2014, with the theme "Science and Technology: Go Global, Go for Excellence towards Quality Education," brought the competition to another level. But Hernandez faced the challengers head on.

A topic on Ecological Balance tested the wit and eloquence of the contestants in the Sci-Promptu, and Hernandez, with the help of mentor Agripina Domingo-Pangan, overcame other challengers and bagged the third place.

Hernandez won first place in the District Level held in September 2013 held at Padre Valerio Malabanan Memorial School and second place in the Division Level at the G.B. Lontok Memorial School.

It was an exhilarating experience for the College of International Hospitality & Tourism Management (CIHTM) to be part of the 44th Batangas City Foundation Day Celebration. CIHTMs HRM & LICA students once again took pride to bring home the cash prize, trophy for the institution and medals for each contestant when they were awarded first runner up for the Pasiklaban ng Kalderetang Batangas 2013 last July 18, 2013 at the Batangas Sports Colliseum.

The competition which is an annual feature of the Sublian Festival depicting the theme Batangenyong Sama-sama, Tagumpay Kayang-kaya was participated by seven schools and universities offering HRM, Culinary Arts and Home Economics programs in the province. Contestants needed to prepare on the spot Kalderetang Kambing as the main course with accompaniment of their own choice good for four servings. It tested ones creativity also on plating and presenting the local dish in a global or international perspective.

The judges were composed of celebrity chefs and general managers of hotels and restaurants. Three television networks; two from national and 1 regional were present also to cover the events. It was the second time for DLSL to join in this competition, Last 2012, it garnered the highest award for the contestants were hailed Champion, this year DLSL is still included in the list of the top three schools that has the most delectable and best Kalderetang Kambing, one of the special delicacies f the province.

Helping Your Child to Develop A Sense of Responsibility
A sense of responsibility is an important attitude that parents must be able to teach their children. A sense of responsibility enables one to take justifiable pride in achievements and accept the reality of failures.

Developing responsibility means becoming trustworthy or accountable for ones actions. Encouraging your child to become responsible should start at an early age. It will take a lot of work and patience on your part, but it will be worth every minute of effort, both for you and for your developing child. Here are some ways to teach responsibility to your children:
  • Establish rules and appropriate consequences. Help your child understand that rules are to be followed and that there will be consequences if they are not. This will encourage her to become responsible for her actions.
  • Help your child develop concern for others. Teach your child to share and to think of others feelings. Caring for pets and other living creatures is a good way to help kids develop empathy. Insist that he/she treat others in a kindly and mannerly fashion.
  • Give your child chores. From an early age, kids are capable of putting away their toys and helping with simple tasks. Completing chores will give your child a feeling of accomplishment and self-sufficiency. It will also make him/her feel like a member of the home team!
  • Allow your child to make choices. This should be done in an age-appropriate way. For example, small children can choose a bedtime story, or make a choice from a selection of breakfast cereals.
  • Whenever possible, act as advisor, not as director, in your child life. Give your child increasing chances to make him/her own decisions while still under your roof. As a result, the world will seem a lot less threatening later on. And he/she will know how to exercise good judgment if he/she has lots of practice in this area.
  • Continue to establish rules and follow through with consequences. Rules are not just for little kids. In fact, as your child heads toward the teen years, structure may become even more important. If kids become accustomed to following rules, they will be equipped to establish structure in both their internal and external worlds once they leave home.
  • Encourage your child to manage money. Developing a good work ethic and learning to manage money is key to becoming a responsible adult. Give him/her opportunities to save money while he/she is still young. Teach her to save a portion of her allowance.
  • Help your child understand the importance of giving to others. Encourage your child to participate in community service or volunteer work. Insist that he/she reach out to friends and family in need. Becoming a responsible person means looking out for others as well as oneself.

Without one final element, your childs house of responsibility will crumble: You must model responsibility yourself. In fact, your own actions will have more of an impact on his/her development than anything else. The task of helping him/her to become a responsible person may seem daunting. But its doable, one building block at a time.

De La Salle Lipa College Department was formally opened in school-year 1984-1985, with former High School Academic Assistant Mrs Elsie Rabago, appointed as Officer-in-Charge. It started with an enrollment of 130 students.

With that the Tertiary School Library was also constructed. By that time the library was still small, consisting of four (4) tables, five (5) shelves and a collection of only 500 volumes of books and a few titles of magazines and newspapers. It had a seating capacity of only 32 individuals.

The high school librarian served as the concurrent tertiary school librarian. In 1987 however, a full-time librarian, Ms. Gloria Panggat Lumbera, was hired to develop the library, its services and collection.

In 1996, the College Library was transferred to the ground floor of then newly constructed Sen. Jose Diokno Building. Its floor area was expanded to seat 240 individuals. Library collections were increased and audio-visual materials were procured. In addition, an internet laboratory was provided to meet the community’s need for relevant information and for research assistance.

In 1999, the library was divided into three sections – periodicals, technical, and audio-visual – to better respond to its objectives. Three full time librarians were appointed to oversee these areas along with a head librarian who supervises the entire operations.

In April 2003, Ms. Eileen Magadia was designated as the Head Librarian of the College Library. The library was later referred to as the Learning Resource Center (LRC). The LRC underwent evaluation for Level 1 accreditation of the two Tertiary School programs.

The LRC was further expanded to meet the needs of the increasing number of enrollees. Its seating capacity was increased to 400. The audio- visual section was transferred to the third level of the Sen. Jose Diokno Building along with the Lipasalliana archives which was added to the LRC’s revised organizational set-up. The Nursing Library, an extension library was likewise put up at the Mabini Building . LRC personnel increased and improved with four registered librarians, one archivist, and six library clerks.

De La Salle Lipa College LRC continues and will continue to pursue its mission to serve the Lasallian family and other people who seek assistance for their reading, research and instructional needs.

Hymn & Chant

The Alma Mater Hymn

Hail... hail... alma mater...

Hail to De La Salle!

We’ll hold your banner high and bright

A shield of green and white...

We’ll fight to keep your glory bright...

And never shall we fail!

Hail to thee, our alma mater...

Hail... hail... hail!

Victory Song

(Adapted from Notre Dame University Victory Song)

Cheers! Cheers! For old De La Salle!

Wake up the echoes cheering her name

Send her rousing cheers on high!

Shake down the thunder above the sky!

Whether the odds be great or be small,

Old De La Salle will win over all!

While her loyal sons are marching

Onward to victory! Rah-rah-rah!


Founded in 1962 by the Brothers of the Christian School, De Salle Lipa was built on a 5.9 hectare lot along the national highway. Financed by interest-free loans from Caltex and Shell Corporations, construction of the three one-storey wings of classrooms, a gymnasium-auditorium and the Brothers' House began on January 1962. During its first year, DLSL operated as the Boy's Department of the Maryknoll Sisters' Our Lady of the Rosary Academy (OLRA). As the Maryknoll Sisters were phasing out OLRA's Boys' Department, 221 students were admitted from first to fourth year.


Three Brothers and seven lay teachers composed the first staff of the school. Br. Henry Virgil FSC was the first Director and Principal.


On its second year of operations, the school obtained a temporary permit to operate as La Salle High School. After one year and seven months of guiding the fledgling institution, Br. Virgil died of a heart attack on the 22nd of September 1963. Br. Hugh Damian took his place and held the helm for the next two years.


The school population more than doubled during its fourth year operations. This necessitated the construction of the two-storey St. Joseph Hall during the administration of Br. Frederick Martin FSC in 1967.


Towards the end of the decade as OLRA continued to send its boys to La Salle High School, a large percentage of students began to come from the various elementary schools around the city. Thus, to better prepare the students for the high school, the elementary grades were opened in 1967, with Br. Vernon Mabile FSC as Principal.


In 1969, Br. Rafael Donato FSC arrived to become Director and Principal. It was during his term that the new school seal was designed. The tradition of staging an annual school fair was also begun.


After Br. Rafael's departure for La Salle Greenhills in 1970, Br. Crisanto Moreno FSC became the Principal. Br. Gregory Refuerzo FSC was then the Director. During the term of the two in office, a new library and a sports complex were constructed. The faéade was improved and wooden bleachers inside the gymnasium were constructed. The school became known as De La Salle of Lipa.


Girls were first accepted in school year 1974-75 when Br. Emiliano Hudtohan FSC was the principal. The girls, however, were limited to the first and second year levels.


It was during the term of Br. Antonio Narciso FSC that the school's incorporation papers and by-laws were amended. The school was officially registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission as De La Salle Lipa, Inc.


An attempt at securing PAASCU accreditation was made during the term of Br. Jaime de Guzman FSC. His term of office was remembered for the construction of the four grade school classrooms, which would eventually be known as the Immaculate Conception Hall.


During the term of Br. Samuel Bueser FSC late in the seventies, a modified split-schedule for freshmen and sophomores was implemented to accommodate the growing student population. Enrolment has soared to 1,200. Another effort was made to gain PAASCU accreditation, and this, along with moves to open a College Department, came to fruition after Br. Samuel's term was completed.


In school year 1982-1983, DLSL received its first High School PAASCU accreditation. Br. Eugenio Tianco FSC was the Principal, while Br. Gregory returned to occupy the Director's position. During the school year, an extension to the library was constructed along with an office for guidance counseling. Also, Immaculate Conception Hall was completed during the summer.


Br. Jaime Dalumpines FSC was appointed Principal in 1983. Because of recommendations contained in the PAASCU report, reforms were instituted. The two-year old split schedule for freshmen and sophomores was scrapped. Administration was decentralized and Year Level Moderators were introduced for improved student supervision.


In 1985, the College Department came into existence with an enrollment of 130 students. The College offered Bachelor of Science in Commerce Major in Business Management and Agribusiness Management.


Br. Jaime went on to complete a 5-year term, the last of which was school year 1987-88. He left soon afterwards for Canada for further studies, and was replaced by Br. Edgardo Jayme FSC. The latter stayed for only a few months and left the school in midterm. Ms. Norma Blanco was appointed Acting Principal, assisted by a council composed of the Year Level Moderators and Department Heads.


Ms. Blanco was formally appointed as the first lay principal of the high school the following May. During Ms. Blanco's term, the 1100 wing was constructed to house the freshmen classes. Also, the Elementary Department was reopened.


Because of the rapid growth of the institution in the nineties, it became necessary in 1994 to have a resident president. The position was given to alumnus Br. Narciso Erguiza FSC, who, in 1974, was briefly assigned to the school but had spent most of his years as a De La Salle Brother elsewhere.


Br. Erguiza stayed for two school years and reorganized the administrative structure. The major academic and service departments became known as "units" and their respective heads sat in the President's Council, which met weekly. Strategic directions were drafted and implemented, which emphasized the growing role of the college in the community.


Also, in the nineties, the College Department added more courses such as Secretarial Administration; Agribusiness Management with majors in Horticulture and Animal Husbandry; Bachelor of Elementary Education; Bachelor of Secondary Education with majors in English, Math, Religious Education and Environmental Science; and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Accountancy and Hotel and Restaurant Management.


With Br. Erguiza requesting to pursue fulltime graduate studies at the end of his school year in office, Br. Donato was requested by Bro. Benildo Feliciano FSC, the Brother Provincial, to become President of the school. The latter accepted and was officially installed in ceremonies held on 15th May 1995.


Under Br. Donato's term, De La Salle Lipa embarked on a massive physical plant development program which completely transformed the Institution. Various innovations were also introduced. The elementary and secondary units were integrated into what is known as the Unified School, with homerooms named after parishes, Philippine cities and cities around Southeast Asia and Oceana region where De La Salle schools are located.


A graduate program was offered for the first time in the school's history. The school's Master in Management Technology program, the first of its kind in the Philippines, combines Business Management with Information Technology.


More courses offerings were made available in the Tertiary School at the turn of the century as programs in Secretarial Administration and Agribusiness Management were phased out. Courses in Financial Management, Bachelor of Science in Engineering, Economics, Management Technology, Legal Management, and Certificate Courses in Entrepreneurship, Hotel and Restaurant Management and Information Technology were opened. In the later years, Bachelors of Science in Psychology, Electronics and Communication, Bachelor of Science in Psychology, Electronics and Communications Engineering, Industrial Engineering, Bachelor of Arts in Communication, Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, Nursing, Tourism, Bachelor of Science in Entrepreneurship, Biology and Electrical Engineering were also offered.


Br. Donato retired in 2003 after having presided over the most intensive period of growth and development that the school had ever known. Br. Manuel Pajarillo FSC was installed as 3rd president of DLSL on 15 May 2003.


Under Br. Manuel Pajarillo's term, the grade school and the high school levels of the Unified School (re-named later as the Integrated School under the supervision of its Principal, Ms. Violeta Ramirez) received their Level 2 "clean" re-accreditation status for five years from PAASCU. This was the highest rating received by the high school level since 1983 and the initial 5-years accreditation status for the grade school level.


The College, with its goal of improving its academics program submitted applications for the PAASCU accreditation of the following programs: Business Management, Education, Accountancy, Hotel and Restaurant Management, Marketing Management, Economics, Computer Science, and Financial Management. Business Management and Education were granted Level 1 accreditation status in 2005 while the rest had their preliminary visit the year after.


New facilities were built and information technology was improved. The Apolinario Mabini and the St. Br. Benilde buildings were constructed to provide facilities for the Sciences Courses in College and new classrooms for the Primary Learning Community of the Integrated School respectively. Wireless Internet Connectivity was introduced to keen abreast with new trends in Information and Technology.


In school year 2005-2006, changes in the school's seal, vision-mission statement, organizational structure and nomenclature were implemented in response to new changes in Lasallian education. Buildings in Integrated School were named after saints and a Lasallian Brother (Br. Gregory Refuerzo FSC) while college buildings were named after Philippine heroes and prominent Batangueños.

In the same school year, Br. Manuel Pajarillo FSC launched the Book Mobile Reading Program (BMRP), a bus converted into a moving library to cater to the reading and literacy needs of the public schools that surround DLSL. The program hopes, among others, to provide the students of beneficiary schools with reading materials suited to their level and interest; enough information on library procedures; information and exercises to develop students' reading skills; and, creative activities to develop students' interest in reading.

In 2006, Br. Manuel Pajarillo FSC was assigned as Interim President of the De La Salle University Dasmariñas and the De La Salle Health and Science Campus while serving as President of DLSL.


Until the end of his term in SY 2009-2010, Br. Manuel Pajarillo FSC stood by the 10-point agenda, forming the DLSL's strategic direction during his term. These revolved around Educational Excellence, Academic Competence, Scholarship and Innovation, Synergy, Accountability, Internationalization, Lasallian Association, Education of and for the Poor, Justice and Pro-Environment Practices and

Social Transformation.


In SY 2010-2011, Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC became the 4th resident Brother President of De La Salle Lipa. The previous administrations' 10-point agenda was now condensed into Five Pillars of Direction: DLSL as a Learning Organization, Diversified Funding Base, Accessibility, Care and Nurturance of the Environment and Community Development and Transformation.


Early in his administration, physical improvement and maintenance of existing structures and landscaping were noticeable. The continuation of the Brother Benilde Building also took place as well as the renovation of the canteen area into the Animo Diner and the Green Spoon Café. His administration is also credited for acquiring almost 4 hectares of land beside De La Salle Lipa which is planned to house future expansion of the College and Institutional structures of the institution.

HRM Students Explore Singapore
The 3rd year BS HRM students taking up International cuisine visited the Lion City last March 7-9, 2013. It was a three days and two nights educational tour in Singapore. The students were exposed to various key destinations such as Merlion Park, Clark Quay and Marina Bay Sands. The participants also had the opportunity to see the picturesque of Fullerton Hotel, the Esplanade, the Singapore Flyer, Helix Bridge, Chinatown, Jewel Box located at Mount Faber and the Botanic Garden. The students also experienced a wide variety of international food.

One of the best highlights of the educational tour was the training and seminar at Singapore Hotel and Tourism Education Centre (SHATEC) Institute where the group attended a wine appreciation and cooking demonstration of French cuisine.

The group was accompanied by CIHTM faculty Ms. Rhikie Rose Maranan and LICA Head, Chef Shirley de Jesus.
