Lasallian's Painting Catches Eye of Nat'l Artist Bencab
A BS Biology student's painting caught the eye of the National Artist for Visual Arts, Benedicto R. Cabrera, also known as Bencab, that landed its painter, Marie Penafrancia P. Mendoza, the top prize in the on-the-spot painting contest. 

The competition was one of the categories among a list of events at the 54th National Rizal Youth Leadership Institute in Baguio on December 15-16, 2016, joined by several student leaders of De La Salle Lipa.

Without a formal training and equipped with the very basic materials, she did not mind being picked at the very last minute.

The executive public relations of the colleges' Student Government tapped the artist within as her last painting engagement goes way back in junior high school or five years ago.

Mendoza's watercolor painting on canvass combined the past and present in her subject. She explained that it was the prolific writer and national hero, Jose Rizal, who was guiding the hand of a millennial while they hold a quill together and directed by a compass. Both were in sync with their thoughts as they were expressing on a tablet, "payapang pakikibaka."   

But painting is not the only special interest of the young Lasallian as she was a former member of DLSL's cheer leading squad that was adjudged champion in the 2014 and 2015 Pom Division - national level.

The budding painter wishes to pursue medicine at the De La Salle Health and Science Institute after completing her degree.

Indeed, big things come in little packages. The pint-sized kindergarten pupils of Luzon-based La Salle schools in the country took the assembly by storm as they met together for the 6th Little Archers Olympics on November 10, 2016 at the SENTRUM.

Young Lasallian delegations from participating schools, La Salle College Antipolo, De La Salle Araneta University, De La Salle University - Integrated School (Science and Technology Complex), De La Salle Santiago Zobel, La Salle Green Hills, and De La Salle Lipa, paraded in their most adorable cheerleader outfits.

The applause of the parents and audience reverberated on campus as the little ones took turn by school to perform their much anticipated cheer and dance numbers that never fail to tickle the viewers' fancy. It was followed by a series of games specially designed for them which they obviously enjoyed.

De La Salle Lipa cordially hosted this year's event, themed "Championing the Animo," as it came in full circle.

Legal Education Board: DLSL Law School among the Best in the Country
The De La Salle Lipa representatives, Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research, Dr. Alicia Botardo, College of Law Dean, Atty. Emerito Enginco, and College PAASCU Coordinator, Dr. Maria Theresa Mangulabnan, were beaming with pride and honor as they received the awards of the DLSL College of Law as one of the top ten schools in the country.

Two awards were bestowed upon the relatively young law school of the institution, given by the Legal Education Board (LEB): "Certificate of Academic Recognition - for ranking 10th over-all passing rates; and Certificate of Academic Merit - for ranking 8th in the passing rates for new/first-time examinees." This was in reference to the previously released nationwide rankings of all the law schools, headlined "Performance and Ranking of Law Schools Based on the 2015 BAR Examinations."

The awarding ceremony was held on November 11, 2016 at the New World Manila Bay Hotel led by the LEB Founding Chairperson, Justice Hilarion L. Aquino and LEB Member representing the Commission on Higher Education, Atty. Carmelita Yadao-Sison.

Lasallians' Firsthand Take on Leadership Training in Singapore
Packed with Lasallian spirit, intellect and purpose, the annual Lasallian Leadership Training Camp held at St. Joseph Institute Singapore on October 7-10, 2016 was attended by De La Salle Lipa's Student Coordinating Board (SCB) Grade 10 representatives, Cedric Mandado, Sophia Isobel Papa, Benedict Sumague, and the group's Vice-President, Bea Luna.

The four-day training was not a vacation at all for the participants coming from various Lasallian schools in the country, but a rigid experiential leadership training towards achieving Lasallian advocacy of helping the underprivileged.

A seminar conducted on Lasallian spirituality and world, an activity done as inspiration to have a shared vision, a topic discussed on challenging the process and enabling others to act, and a discourse on social realities that took place were some of the highlights.

At the final stretch of the program, a meaningful journey processing with Solidarity Lasalliana made the journey for everyone memorable. It concluded with a heartfelt talk about encouraging the heart, a smile-filled camp photo taking and group realizations on I-realities and choices focusing about Lasallian leadership and world.

Lasallians Celebrate Feast, Canonization of Blessed Br. Solomon
De La Salle Lipa joins the rest of the Lasallian family across the globe in celebration of the feast of Blessed Brother Solomon (Nicholas Leclerq) on September 2, while they await his canonization on October 16, 2016.

Below is a write-up from the Lasallian East Asia District regarding the soon-to-be-saint.

"Once the monarchy had been overthrown early in the French Revolution, the next target was the Church. In 1790 the Civil Constitution of the Clergy gave the state complete control over the Church in France. In order to continue to function, priests and religious were forced to take an oath to support the constitution. Most of the Brothers refused and so were forced gradually to abandon their schools and communities. Eventually the institute was deprived altogether of legal status in France.

Brother Solomon was secretary to Brother Agathon, the Superior General, after having been a teacher, director and bursar. He always showed a great love for people and a great attachment to his work. Having refused to take an oath, he lived alone in Paris in secrecy. We still have many of his letters to his family. The last one is dated August 15, 1792. That very day he was arrested and imprisoned in the Carmelite monastery, which had become a prison, together with several bishops and priests. On September 2, almost all the prisoners were killed by sword in the monastery garden. He was beatified on October 17, 1926, together with 188 of his fellow martyrs. He was the first one of our martyrs and also the first Brother to be beatified.

His feast is celebrated on September 2 with the other Brother martyrs of the hulks of Rochefort, who died 2 or 3 years later."

Born at Boulogne, France November 14, 1745
Entered the novitiate March 25, 1767
Martyred September 2, 1792
Beatification: October 17, 1926
Canonization: October 16, 2016

Lady Spiker Saet Graces PEP Rally 2016
As an annual tradition of De La Salle Lipa, the school community was unison in bidding the Green Chevrons good luck as they embark on a new athletic journey for AY 2016-2017 at this year's Pep Rally.

The SENTRUM was packed with well-wishers on August 25, 2016 led by the Sports and Culture Director, Emily Babasa, to uplift the spirits of the young athletes through her inspiring words. It was further hyped-up by the Danz Com PEP Squad with their cheer dance and the Animo could never be more alive.

With the undeniable school spirit emanating from the audience, invited guest speaker, Relea Ferina Saet, former De La Salle University Lady Spiker, felt at home on the land of the Green Chevrons. The scene brought her back to the Green Archers territory during her heyday as a multi-awarded volleyball player. As an athlete, Saet weighed in on having a role model who embodies the ideals of a Filipino sportsperson. A fellow Green Archer was cited as an example that made it to the Rio Olympics 2016 and elucidated what it took - the hardships and sacrifices - to qualify in the ultimate sports tournament.

Motivated and filled with the Animo, the following varsities were introduced to the DLSL community: athletics, badminton, baseball, basketball, chess, football, swimming, table tennis, taekwondo, and volleyball.

After the oath of sportsmanship, led by player Derick Delizo, volleyball men's team, the event concluded with a group presentation of all the athletes together with the Danz Com PEP Squad.

Education Students Reap Awards in DLSU-D Congress
Lorenz Carin, second year Education student major in Filipino bested 15 contestants from different colleges and universities in Cavite and Manila when he was declared champion in his rendition of the story telling piece "Ang Madyik Silya ni Titoy."

The DLSL quizzers Kenneth Baet, (BSE-Math), Nerish Joy Uri (BSE-English) and Bless Ann Mea (BSE-Filipino) placed third out of 20 competing schools in the Professional Education Quiz Bee.

Competitions were held on the occasion of the Fifth Young Educators Congress held at the DLSU-Dasmarinas, December 3-4.

Aside from various competitions, participants were treated to seminars and updates on K to 12, demonstration teaching and paper presentations. Vince Tabiano, Ar Jay Ron de Gala and Wendy Diane Opulencia E4A-English participated in the demo teaching while April Mae Dacles and Krizia Camille Buban presented their paper.

LET's Top 6 from DLSL
The Licensure Examination for Teachers held September 2015 proved to be favorable to De La Salle Lipa's examinees, especially with one of its instructors, Joseph Angelu I. Ng, placing number six among the top notchers of this batch.

Faring well, as usual, DLSL scored 91.18% against the national rate of 41.75% for BSE, while BEED examinees yielded 91.67% versus the country's 31.36%. The clear gaps between the institution's results, vis-a-vis the national's, and the consistency of the Education department's performance of DLSL, for the longest time, have been outstanding.

Hats off to the following passers for being among DLSL's pride.

Thank You Teacher
Last October 5, the Student Coordinating Board, in coordination with the Student Activities Office, prepared a simple program at the Brother Henry Virgil Gym in celebration of the World Teachers' Day.

A Thanksgiving Mass was held and led by Fr. Joel Villanueva, OSJ, followed by a simple lunch, sponsored by the Integrated School parent association - PENCIL.

The program was officially started by introductory messages from the IS Principal, Ms. Mayolisa Mantuano, PENCIL President Ms. Carmen Bautista and IS FSA President, Ms. Aira Buquir.

The highlight of the event was the Bingo Social with the following cash prizes: 1,000-1st round, 2,000-2nd round, 3,000-3rd round, 5,000-4th round and a whopping 10,000 for the Blackout round.

Truly, it was another memorable World Teachers' Day Celebration.

A Monumental Trilogy Event at DLSL
Like mushrooms, buildings at De La Salle Lipa are sprouting, left and right to provide more student-centered facilities that are responsive to modernization and consistent with the physical development plan of the institution.

A testament of which were the recently concluded groundbreaking rites held on September 8, 2015 which aptly concluded with a commemoration of Mother Mary's nativity.

A multisectoral group was on hand to witness the momentous occasion beginning with the groundbreaking for a 2,242-square meter gymnasium that will be initially constructed at the Sports Complex. With two FIBA-size basketball courts, and an approximate spectator seating capacity of 480 persons at the retractable bleachers, it shall serve as a multi-purpose facility that features convertible courts for basketball, volleyball and badminton, or even venues for dance and theatre practices, as well as, for productions and assemblies. Along with this Phase 1a construction are inclusion of separate male & female lockers rooms for the athletes' use, a teachers' room, I.T. room, an equipment room, and a canteen that also serves as students' lounge and gathering area.

Subsequently, the groundbreaking rites of the three-storey Students Center - 1,800 square meters - dedicated floor space for college and senior high school students ensued. The Students Center features: a canteen with multiple food stations and a restaurant cafe on the ground level; student organization offices, meeting rooms and workplaces, and the Student Affairs Office on the second level; and a student hang-out spot for lounging, group study, conferences and recreational activities on the third level roofed deck.  Internet clusters are provided in several locations throughout the building.  The Students Center is comprised of a north wing rectangular block and a south wing with a curved glass curtain wall.  Connecting both wings are bridgeways at the upper levels and a central covered gallery on the ground level.  This gallery serves as a public gathering space and a pedestrian corridor linking the Students Center to adjacent buildings on campus.

Both descriptions of the upcoming buildings were provided by the selected architects from KSE who were in attendance, together with the commissioned construction companies for each building.

Taking turns, top administrators have discoursed support and gratitude for the newest blessings of the DLSL community during the ceremony. The Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research, Dr. Alicia Botardo, underscored the past ten years' development plan being realized and painstakingly enumerated every structure.

President and Chancellor, Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min., views the growth of the institution as inevitable. From its humble beginnings, the Brother President shared his reflection on how the institution has grown by leaps and bounds by dreaming big and witness it come to life. He dedicates the new facility to sports and arts, especially the Green Chevrons athletes - whom he calls the unsung heroes - deserving of homage for their indisputable and often inconspicuous sacrifices. On the other hand, building the Students Center is the institution's way of honoring the students. The upcoming structure intends to make the Lasallians more productive, constructive and creative. He concluded his message with a story addressed to the student leaders. As one of the contributors in the construction of the building, the Brother President reminded them that their contribution will be a legacy to future members of the community.

A blessing and a dream come true, the Vice Chancellor for Mission gushed over the overwhelming graces that had been granted to DLSL. She thanked the people who are responsible for the realization of such dream and hoped more would benefit from it.     

Concluding the event was the unveiling of the Our Lady of the Stars - a nine and a half foot statue - located at the foreground of the CBEAM Hall.

Through the Brothers Community Director, Br. Jun Estrellas, the history he shared elucidated how the Patroness, seemingly, by divine providence, found its way among Lasallians.

Since its origin in 1060 in Normandy, France, through a vision of falling stars, it has been passed on to the Brothers of the Christian Schools of Mercy and became popular in Europe even at the time of St. John Baptist de La Salle. But at the verge of extinction, the said congregation applied for membership under the Brothers of the Christian Schools. In 1938, the Institute of St. John Baptist de La Salle took charge of the Abbey and Shrine, ensuring the preservation and veneration of the Our Lady of the Star.

Destiny as it may be, or a providential coincidence, the striking symbol adorning the Patroness of La Salle Schools resembles the symbol of the Institute - a star - a sign of the spirit of faith.

SCB Pays it Forward
Last September 29, 2015 the Student Coordinating Board, together with their moderator, Mr. Hirodian Baon and the Student Activities Office Head, Jocelyn Rosos officially handed the 20,000 peso donation to the Community Involvement Office through the Vice Chancellor for Mission, Violeta Ramirez and the Community Involvement Office Manager, Judith Alcaraz.

The amount shall be used to purchase story books for the newly built library in adopted Aeta community. 

The amount was part of the proceeds of the SPLASHED: Color fun Run initiated by the Student Coordinating Board last September 26, 2015.

Splashed Saturday at DLSL
Last September 26, Saturday, the Student Coordinating Board, in coordination with the Students' Activities Office, conducted the SPLASHED: Color Fun Run at the De La Salle Lipa Oval.

The color run consisted of three categories: 3K run (from DLSL to Lipa Medix), 5K run (from DLSL to SM Lipa) and 500-meter dash.

Tickets were at an affordable price of PHP150.00, which already included a race bib kit, color powder sachet and a baller.

The run was participated in by more than 1000 runners, from Integrated School and college students, outsiders and alumni and staff.

Aside from the color run, a mini-music festival, #SPLASHEDAfterParty with DJ Berd, was held on the same day where the runn¬ers enjoyed minutes of splashing water and holi powder.

Part of the proceeds from the run will be allotted to the Community Involvement Office projects in DLSL's partner public schools and for the preparation of the celebration of World Teachers' Day on October 5.


Lipasallians Take Part in LLTC in Singapore
The Lasallian Leadership Training Camp (LLTC) held at St. Joseph's Institution International in Singapore last September 2-9, 2015, indeed, was a significant experience to the young leaders of De La Salle Lipa.

Lasallian Campus and Social Action Ministers' Assembly
After a five-year hiatus, the Lasallian communities such as De La Salle - College of Saint Benilde, De La Salle Santiago Zobel School, De La Salle University Manila, De La Salle Antipolo, De La Salle Araneta University, De La Salle University Dasmarinas, De La Salle University-Health and Science Institute, La Salle Greenhills and De La Salle Lipa, gathered once again on November 11, 2014 at the DLSL Retreat Complex for the Lasallian Campus and Social Action Ministers' Assembly.

The objectives of the assembly were to gather the ministers for a renewal of commitment and re-energize for the Lasallian mission and to rebuild relationship, strengthen the network and support among Lasallian ministers. It commenced with a celebration of the Holy Eucharist led by Msgr. Rufo Suplido together with Fr. Eduardo Paglinawan.

Br. Jose Mari Jimenez FSC, the Sector Leader of De La Salle Brothers Philippines, welcomed the participants and took the lead in the introductions. The "Kumustahan" session ensued facilitated by Carmelita Lazatin, Vice Chancellor for Lasallian Mission and Student Life of DLS-CSB and shared update to the participants. Another inspiring message titled "Examining my Mission" discussed by Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min., DLSL President and Chancellor, focusing on how to "Restore broken connection with past and future to bring unity to a fragmental ideology". Next was the "Sense of Meaning" by Sr. Caroline Joy Luz RSCJ of the Religious of the Sacred Heart in which she discussed the topic "How to respond to Gods Invitation and Call". She presented the 6 models: Moises, Esther, Jonas, Peter, Mary Magdalene and Paul. They composed a wide array of personalities that answer the call and invitation from God. At the end of the discussion, she reminded the attendees to keep the love going. Lastly, Br. Edmundo Fernandez FSC, Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD) Brother Visitor shared the Three shadows of St John which were the "Fight with the School Master, Defection in Reims - Heroic Vow, and De La Salle in Parmenie."  His advice was to accept the state of being lost because there people will find light. He also borrowed a line from the book A Field Guide in getting Lost by Rebecca Solnit, "Never to get lost is not to live, not to know how to get lost brings you to destruction, and somewhere in the terra incognita in between, lies a life of discovery."

They all shared their experiences of being a part of the Lasallian community which started as passion and later on led to mission.

The assembly was facilitated by Keane Palatino, DLSPs Executive Director of Lasallian Mission Services and Evangeline De Peralta, Lasallian Formation and Mission Department Director of De La Salle Santiago Zobel School.

After three months of renovation, the much awaited re-opening of the Demo Room promises to bring ones learning experience into a whole new level. It is practically anyone's dream kitchen and considered to be a chef's paradise!

With the main objectives of updating the facilities and providing a better place conducive to learning, top-of-the-line appliances and a re-modeled room welcomed the attendees at the blessing of the College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management Demo/Lecture room on August 8, 2014.

LCCK awarded DLSL with 6 scholarship grants!
Before School Year 2014-2015 starts, De La Salle Philippines (DLSP) awarded 6 scholarship grants to scholastically gifted but financially challenged students of De La Salle Lipa (DLSL). Through the Luis Co Chi Kiat Scholarship Endowment (LCCK), DLSP distributed a number of full scholarship grants with living, book and uniform allowances to various La Salle sector schools including DLSL.

Lipa City, Batangas - In a simple, but very symbolic rite, De La Salle Lipa held the Topping-Off Ceremony for the DLSL Learning Resource Center Extension Building last 9 May 2014 at 10:00am at the top floor of the raw infrastructure.

Construction activities are flavored with traditions. Some of these are celebrated like the laying of the time capsule. Some are internally practiced like the "padugo" where a live animal is sacrificed to appease the indigenous spirits of the land.

On May 9, a Friday, the construction of the DLSL Learning Resource Center Extension Building has reached the peak of the structure. With this significant milestone, called a Topping Off, DLSL announces to everyone that the institution has succeeded in reaching the total height of the structure.

To help celebrate the gathering, DLSL President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC, D. Min. shared a few reflections about beginnings and providing for the needs of the generations to come.  Gathered together for the celebration were administrators, faculty, staff, and students, together with Engr. Greg Serrano, CEO of Greserr Contractors and Builders, Inc., and his staff, builders of the structure.

The DLSL Learning Resource Center Expansion Project is the institution's response to a dynamic and growing institution.  The current Learning Resource Centers of DLSL needs additional space to accommodate the research, study and discussion needs of its students and faculty.

The expansion project is designed to accommodate 750 students at any given time in its circulation, periodicals and Internet sections, as well as in its audio-visual and discussion rooms.  The design, similar to university libraries in the United States, provides for the Diokno Hall side to house the AV equipments, periodicals, Internet sections and business centers.  The extension ground floor will house the reading halls comprising of two (2) discussion rooms and a mezzanine - for the general circulation collection, the graduate school area and two (2) discussion rooms.

The Annex upper floors will house the College of Law library, five (5) multi-purpose rooms and the archives.

Lipa City, Batangas - Amidst upturned stones and dirt, weeds, bushes and trees gone wild, De La Salle Lipa's stakeholders and the Lasallian East Asia District (LEAD) Brothers turned up last 14 February at 2:00 PM at the DLSL Annex 2 and broke the ground for the DLSL Retreat Complex, targeted to host recollections, retreats and formation activities of the 10,000 plus population of the institution.

The DLSL Retreat Complex was designed by Arch. Antonio Gutierrez, Jr. and will be constructed by Wilconstruct Development Corp. under Arch. Willy Cuizon.  Expected completion date is May 2014.  Initial structure plans show that the complex will have a generous mess hall, four sessions halls, several kiosks, restrooms and a proposed location for a Chapel.  A plan for a dormitory is in the works.

The complex has been in the drawing board for quite sometime but the imperative to ensure the safety and security of students against transporting them to far and varying formation venues and the cost efficiency of the said move enabled the project to jump from paper to ground breaking reality.

Funding for the project has been jumpstarted by the 51st Foundation Week host - the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management (CBEAM), headed by Dean Lani Garachico.  The CBEAM Department pledged the proceeds of the week-long celebration solely for the construction of the complex.

Highlighting the guest list for the Retreat Complex groundbreaking were PARC General Councilor Br. David Hawke FSC, Auxiliary Visitor Br. Thomas Lavin FSC, Lipa City Councilor Joel Pua, Wilconstruct owner Arch. Willy Cuizon and designer Arch. Tony Gutierrez, Jr., DLSL administrators, ILFO staff and CBEAM representatives.

Lighting the path towards advent
Celebrating Christ's nativity at De La Salle Lipa marks the annual tradition of the 'Lighting Ceremony.'

LAMP Hosts Scholars Recognition Day Another Success
The Scholars' Recognition Day, held last 27 September 2013 at the Sen. Diokno Auditorium, gave acknowledgment to the sets of scholars who excel in four scholarship categories: Scholarship Programs being funded by various Local and National Government Agencies, Outreach Scholarship Programs, In-House Scholarship Programs divided into Academic and Non-Academic, and Privately Funded Scholarship Programs. For each scholarship program, three scholars for the Integrated School and Colleges who got the highest Grade Point Average for the previous school year regardless of their year level have been awarded in this event. In this tradition of celebrating excellence in the challenging academic environment of the institution, the scholars were gathered not just to honor them from their diligence and hard work, but also to familiarize the Lasallian community with the names and faces that will continue to dominate the tarpaulin wall of excellence.

The scholars were inspired by the program prepared by the Lasallian Assistance Management Program's personnel, LAMP Manager Henson Ola, Jennylou Minas, and Enalyn Castillo. That day would not be possible as well without the assistance of the Free School Scholars and the LAMPs Clerical Assistants in facilitating the parents, audience, and the awardees in the said program.

The event began with the invocation and the Philippine National Anthem led by the De La Salle Voices. This event highlighted the Academic Year 2012-2013, a year when a number of scholars reaped numerous awards in various competitions and prestigious award-giving bodies like Mr. Benny Mart Hiwatig FSLE Scholar and Ms. Michiko Takemori Academic Scholar, 2012 Ten Outstanding Students of the Philippines National Finalists and Nikaela Katrina Gamboa, 2012 Ten Outstanding Jose Rizal Model Students of the Philippines and a 2013 Ten Outstanding Students of The Philippines National Finalist.  These scholars have served as exemplars of quality Lasallian education.

Each one of the audiences became enthused as well with the inspiring message of the guest speaker, Mr. Mark Mendoza, a scholar who graduated with honors from the first batch of the St. Bro. Jaime Hilario Learning Community - Night High School Program of the Integrated School. He left with the words never give up in every struggle and continue what each one has started.

The scholars who ranked one in their respective scholarship category are Reuben Albert G. Mistas III and Van Alfred T. De Villa, Outstanding STAR Scholars in High School and College respectively; Sarah V. Navarro, Outstanding CHED Scholar; Henry A. Lat, Outstanding BPSP Scholar; Karla B. Alday, Outstanding MAS/CSP Scholar; John Macneil A. Mendoza, Outstanding Privately Funded Scholar for High School, John Lawrence G.

Pasia, the Outstanding Free School Scholars in High School and College, Zymon Andrew M. Maquinto, Outstanding Saint Brother Miguel Febres Cordero Scholar; Chrizon O.

The program's highlight was the awarding of the Most Outstanding Scholar for SY 2012-2013 to Mr. Raymond C. Mayo of the High School Unit and Mr. Henry A. Lat of the College.

Scholars' Recognition Day is not just held for the scholars, but also for the students who dream to be a scholar.

And most especially, to give thanks to Almighty God who is ready to give hope to every challenge each one will encounter.

BRAFE's spirit keeps on burning on its 8th year
Late Bro. Rafael Donato's 'Golfing for Education' advocacy keeps on burning as it reaped P1M for the benefit of FSLE scholars during the 8th BRAFE Golf Tournament at Mt. Malarayat Golf and Country Club, October 7.

On BRAFE's 8th year of golfing, professional and amateur golfers around the Philippines convened in the green field for a golden mission on education. This annual event raised funds for providing free Lasallian college education for financially-challenged but academically qualified students in De La Salle Lipa.

As of this year, FSLE has 31 scholars coming from engineering, business management, accountancy, arts and sciences programs. These scholars are enjoying 100% free tuition and miscellaneous fees as managed and supervised by the Lasallian Assistance Management Program (LAMP).

Scholars were present during the awarding ceremony of the said tournament where they proudly introduced themselves to the crowd of golfers. FSLE alumni Benny Mart Hiwatig and Kate Laya, who were both beneficiaries of BRAFE 1 and 4 respectively, were also present and introduced their current career status.

Moreover, the FSLE scholars under the supervision of Mr. Henson Ola, LAMP Manager, Jhing Minas and Ena Castillo, LAMP Staff extended their deepest gratitude to the BRAFE core group for their unending support to the foundation. The core group composed of Albert Garcia, Bong Africa, Edmund Datuin, Albert Virata de los Santos, Gene Garcia, Ben Jacinto and Ting Yupangco.

A check amounting to P 1,000,000.00 was formally endorsed to the FSLE group headed by Ms. Caress Banson, President of FSLE and accompanied by Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. President and Chancellor of De La Salle Lipa.

After the day of the tournament, Gil Noriel Ceniza, fourth year BS Accountancy and one of the BRAFE 5 beneficiaries uttered his realizations, "FSLE and BRAFE have given me the opportunity to pursue the career of my own choice. Through their compassion and generosity, I have been granted the chance of studying in an institution which not only provides quality education, but enhances student's personality as well. With all these privileges given to me, I have learned to treasure each and every opportunity coming my way. I have learned to value my education more, which intensifies my utmost desire to attain all my goals in life. That, I believe, is the greatest impact FSLE and BRAFE has brought into my life and into pursuing my dreams."

Pagcaliwagan reaps awards in int'l math tourneys
Lasallians proved to be excellent in academics once again- that they do not only shine in academic competitions locally but also internationally.

Our Grade 3 student, Gerald Pagcaliwagan of BB 104 proved this to be true. He bagged two bronze medals in the ASIA MATH CUP, 22nd King of Mathematics International Competition and received a Merit Award in the Gifted Mathematics Green World Cup International Tournament in Hong Kong last July 24-28, 2013.

Out of hundreds of hopefuls, Pagcaliwagan made it to the international competitions after his remarkable performance in the series of training programs and made him eligible to be part of the Philippine teams, according to International Contest Committee Chairman, Eduardo DeLa Cruz, Jr., Ed. D.

On the other hand Gerald reaped the fruit of his labor- being an honor student and an MTAP champion.
Gerald, at his early age, is a living proof that truly great beginnings start here.
