DLSL Alumnus Showcases Brassworks in Exhibit
Jonathan Dangue, De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) high school batch 2001 alumnus, showcased his brassworks in an exhibit entitled "Stoic Drinks", September 19 to October 2, at Galerie Francesca, SM Megamall, Mandaluyong City and at ManilArt 2017, Oct. 12 to 15, at the SMX Convention Center, SM Aura, Taguig City.

"Stoic Drinks," according to Dangue, was inspired by his current life situation. He used brass as an antenna to send a message to the universe. He used "sigils" (power symbolisms) for each brass piece - drawn from his research on the former. Each work has stones serving as charms aiming to project energies - for the earth to listen to one’s vibrations (needs).

For instance, Dangue utilized carnelian in "Positibong Naiisip," a protection versus jealousy and anger. It also looks into cultivating harmonious relationships. On the other hand, black tourmaline was meant to connect an individual with the earth’s energies. It was said to provide protection and attract wealth.

Every stone or clear crystal is enclosed in clear resin, a symbol of fluidity and water - also connected with the subconscious, emotions, and the soul. Each piece likewise symbolizes a "drink", considered an antidote to life's frustrations - thus the exhibit's title.  

Beginnings as a Sculptor

Dangue began receiving invitations to group and solo sculpture shows when he joined Metrobank Art and Design Excellence (MADE) in 2011. Since then, he graced invitations from well-known Philippine art galleries such as the Art Verite, Pinto Museum, Art Cube, Boston Gallery, Galerie Francesca, and others.

"Sculpture, just like architecture, deals with 3D space. Sculpting gives me more freedom to express myself and gave me more time to reflect and meditate. I can study myself as a human being. Self-reflection through the arts can make you know yourself better," Dangue expressed.

Dangue is an architect by profession. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture degree, Major in Design and Applied Arts from Mapua Institute of Technology.  

Lasallian Roots

In high school, Dangue recalled having joined numerous art contests - even failing several times as well. He did not mind losing, for what he valued was the process of expressing himself through the arts.

He also took up graphic arts and portrait arts lessons in the campus. Moreover, he reiterated on how the institution molded him to become an innovator and to decide upon his calling in life. He fondly recalls how, through the Guidance Office, he would openly discuss his career options. The values of being a doer, learner, sharer/server, and leader, moreover, according to him, remain instilled in him. These were just some of the ways DLSL was instrumental in his formative years, according to him.

DLSL Law Professor Earns a Doctor of Laws
Judge Maria Cecilia Austria-Chua, an esteemed member of De La Salle Lipa (DLSL) College of Law's Corps of Professors, was recently conferred by the San Beda College Graduate School of Law, Manila with the degree Doctor of the Science of Jurisprudence (or JSD), or what is commonly known as Doctor of Laws.

Before a panel composed of distinguished luminaries in the academe as well as the legal and judicial professions, she masterfully expounded on and defended her doctoral dissertation "A Proposal for New Rules of Procedure for Administrative Cases Involving First and Second Level Trial Court Judges." Judge Austria-Chua also garnered her Master of Laws degree from the same institution after successfully making a case for her thesis "Mainstreaming Community Service in the Philippine Criminal Justice System." As remarkable and heady as these stellar achievements significantly are, Judge Austria-Chua has always been, and continues to be, known by her JD students and colleagues in the legal academia to be very diligent in her work, possessed of exacting standards yet tempered by a highly empathetic demeanor. Judge Austria-Chua is currently the Presiding Judge of Branch 2, Regional Trial Court, Batangas City especially constituted as a Commercial Court. CONGRATULATIONS, Dr. Judge Austria-Chua!

Journey Exhibit:Chronicle of an Educational Reformer
Exuding the hallmarks of a Patron Saint of Christian Teachers, St. John Baptist De La Salle, as an educational reformer and a visionary leader, the essence of the dedicated exhibit for the homecoming of almnus, Br. Armin A. Luistro FSC, relatively resembled the founder's unforeseen fate.

"Journey 61:16" narrates, through the mementos amassed by the former Department of Education Secretary, the notable stages in his life that led to his key role as game changer in the country.

In a modest and somewhat mini reunion for the attendees, the exhibit was unveiled on February 24, 2017 at the College Learning Resource Center (CLRC) of De La Salle Lipa.

Lipa's pride, Br. Armin, spoke before members of the board of trustees, fellow Lasallian Brothers, school administrators, former teachers and students, batch mates, and student leaders and explained in jest that "Journey 61:16" is not a bible verse.  Coverage of the timeline starts from his childhood 1961, the year he was born until 2016, the year his tenure as cabinet member concluded.

"Personally, [the collection is my] memory [that] tells a story, so personal that I had difficulty parting with some of the memorabilia." But he knew it was not his story alone as he had gathered them through individuals who have touched his life and that is worth sharing.

Although he claims that there is nothing out of the ordinary in the collection, in the perspective of the people who look up to him and his accomplishments, his parting words suggested otherwise, "Enjoy doing ordinary things in an extraordinary way."

De La Salle Lipa's "Journey 61:16" was put together by its curator, Arts Coordinator, Roger Basco, in cooperation with the CLRC, headed by Chief Librarian, Lilian Rabino, and Archivist, Eileen Magadia.

The exhibit will run for two months and is open to public. Please notify the Archives at (043) 756-5555 local 288 before hand for viewing schedule.

Jubilarians Hosts #AnimoIre
Silver Jubilarians - Batch 1991 - hosted the De La Salle Lipa Grand Alumni Homecoming on December 30, 2016 Dubbed #AnimoIre. It imbibed a fusion of Batangueno and Lasallian theme that was infused with pop culture. This apparently brought the alumni from different generations together, including their former mentors.
The annual event fittingly commenced with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at the Capilla de San Juan Bautista de La Salle, led by alumnus, Fr. Antonio Umali.

Celebrations continued at the SENTRUM as the host's working committee chair, Lizette Marajas, warmly welcomed fellow alumni while the event's emcees from the host batch, Glenda Ochoa, Gerald De Guzman, Joel Alcala and Irene Sayas, kicked off the party.

President and Chancellor, Br. Dante Jose Amisola FSC, was on hand to share his warm wishes to everyone and thanked the alumni for a heartwarming celebration of the homecoming. The Brother President likewise, together with former De La Salle Lipa Alumni, Incorporated President, Dr. Joey Panganiban, led the Board of Trustees induction of officers: President, Antonio Martin Tarnate (HS '74); Vice President-External, Reman M. Recio (HS '74); Vice President-Internal, Maria Crecelda D. Roldan (HS '90); Secretary, Dr. Maria Lovely M. Cacho (HS '83); and Auditor, Jose "Joel" Estrella Jr. (HS '79); together with the Board of Trustees, Dr. Benito Atienza (HS '79), Ricardo Leyesa (HS '64), Lizette B. Marajas (HS '91), Joel U. Pena (HS '82), and Gina L. Sabater (HS '82).  

The host batch never forgot to look back and reminisce on their memorable moments and acknowledged their teachers who celebrated with them and shared in the nostalgia.

Justice Carpio Discusses South China Sea Dispute
Young Lasallians from De La Salle Lipa's Senior High School and colleges,  were treated to an afternoon of an extensive discussion regarding "Victory in the Arbitral Tribunal: Prospects and Challenges in the West Philippine Sea".

The students were all ears to invited guest speaker, Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice, Antonio Carpio, on September 15, 2016 at the Malayan Insurance Multipurpose Hall, College Resource Learning Center, as the room was packed with students eager to learn more about the much talked about subject.

Through the insightful presentation of Justice Carpio, students found out that the historical background of the conflict goes way back or decades ago, when the young Chinese were informed by their ancestors that the disputed South China Sea belonged to them.

He also pointed out that the Philippines is not disputing sovereignty or land territory, but rather, maritime space or the rights to the waters and its resources, following the exclusive economic zone of 381,000 square kilometers of maritime space.

Queries poured as the young Lasallians were inquisitive about the consequences of the country's victory after the favorable decision of the tribunal, but was not honored by China. Students were bothered that it could lead to a possible war between the two and anxious of how the Philippines could survive it. Justice Carpio appeased the anxiety of the young ones by explaining that the country will not make impulsive move, especially decisions that the country cannot sustain. Nonetheless, the pursuit of claiming the territory will continue since it entails the future of the Filipinos.

This presentation by Justice Carpio was an installment of the Lasallian Law and Public Policy Lecture Series by DLSL's College of Law.

Junior High School Recognition Rites 2016
It is quite a novelty to note for this particular school year that the junior high schools (JHS) will not hold graduation rites.

Grade 10 Batch 2016 is dubbed the "JHS Completers" instead of the graduates and they shall be among the pioneer batch in the country to delve into the mandated implementation of the Senior High School (SHS).

Despite these changes, it was never a deterrent at De La Salle Lipa to celebrate achievements and successes of the hardworking students who rose to the challenges of JHS.

A total of 646 JHS Completers from 17 sections were on hand at the recognition rites held March 31, 2016 at the SENTRUM.

Administrators, faculty members, and parents were beaming before the students who were in anticipation not only of their hard earned awards but as well as the commendation and endorsement to move up to Senior High School.

The DLSL community congratulates this year's JHS Completers and the following awardees for their notable accomplishments.

Jesus' statue inaugurated on Catholic Teachers' Day
In line with the celebration of the golden jubilee year and Catholic Teacher's day the statue of Jesus with the five children around him in front of the Br. Benilde Hall was finally blessed on January 25, 2013. Present in the event were the top administrators, headed by the school president and chancellor, Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min., Integrated School (IS) principal Mayolisa Mantuano and grade school assistant principal Gina Vergara, faculty, and staff of the IS.

Fr. Erwin Mendoza, OSJ facilitated the said blessing after the Eucharistic celebration for the faculty and staff at the Capilla De San Juan Bautista De La Salle. Invited faculty, staff, and grade school pupils were surprised to see Br. Hans Steven Moran FSC wearing his holy habit with a special apron. With him were red velvet cupcak'es with cream cheese frosting from the De La Salle Lipa Brother's Community with personalized lines stating "Let the children come to you".

According to Br. Antonio Cesar Servando FSC, the one who proposed and made the project possible - the cement finished with marble dusk statue - made by Mr. Conrado Balubayan, is a memorial to Lasallian students that they are constantly special in God's eyes and that the Lord will watch over the safety of all the students of La Salle.

Subsequently, in March 2013, a four feet resin statue of the child Jesus was also installed near the Br. Benilde Hall's lobby as a gift from the De La Salle Brother Novitiate.
