Eugene Hechanova who led the preceding Eucharistic Celebration. The school president urged everyone to be guided by God for inspiration to carry out their duties with faith, zeal for service and communion in mission.

Two Supreme Court Justices Join DLSL Law Faculty
Two notable Supreme Court magistrates, namely, Justice Arturo D. Brion and Justice Jose Catral Mendoza, are set to join the Corps of Professors of the De La Salle Lipa College of Law starting SY 2017-2018. Their presence bolsters an already formidable line up of law professors who possess sterling qualifications not only in the legal and judicial professions but also in the academe.

Justice Arturo D. Brion, who recently retired from the Highest Court, emerged as no. 1 / the topnotcher in the 1974 Bar Examinations after graduating as Cum Laude and Class Valedictorian at the Ateneo Law School. Thenceforth, Justice Brion's work experience involved stints in various leadership capacities in the Legislative, Executive, and Judicial Branches of government as well as in private law practice. Justice Brion intends to hold special lectures at DLSL College of Law.

On the other hand, Justice Jose Catral Mendoza hails from Fernando Air Base, Lipa City. He graduated from De La Salle Lipa in 1963 during that serendipitous time when the school was transitioning from the Our Lady of the Rosary Academy (now known as Canossa Academy, Lipa City) to the actual foundation of De La Salle Lipa in 1962. Justice Mendoza is a recipient of the Gawad Alumni for Outstanding Government and Public Service from the Office of the President of this school. After graduation from the San Beda College of Law, he engaged in private practice before making the inevitable upward journey from being an Executive Judge at the Regional Trial Court of Sta. Cruz, Laguna and then in Quezon City, then as an Associate Justice of the Court of Appeals, and finally as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. He is set to retire from the Highest Court on Aug. 13, 2017. A prime supporter of the DLSL College of Law; Justice Mendoza regularly donates his personal copies of the much respected Philippine Reports to the College of Law Library, where his growing collection occupies pride of place.



"Worlds Most Intelligent Solar System" Finds First Home in the Country at DLSL
Taking the tagline, "Driving What's Next," to heart, De La Salle Lipa is committed and dedicated on taking concrete steps to realize it. This was manifested in one of its recent initiatives through the acquisition of "the world's most intelligent solar system" dubbed the Smartflower by the Smartflower Pacific.

 "Smartflower-the world's first all-in-one solar system," is the first in the country, which can only be found at DLSL. The"plug and play Smartflower functions autonomously and automatically." The press, Lasallian Partners and students witnessed it on the day of its installation on July 6, 2017 at the foreground of the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management Hall.   

Smartflower Pacific's John McEnroe, Chief Executive Officer, and Leonard Tanaka, Chief Operating Officer led the installation with the assistance of its local partner, the Wyn Power Corporation.

The latest innovation "produces up to 40% more power than a comparable traditional rooftop system due to its ability to track the sun at 90-degree angle from sun up to sun down and its self-cleaning and cooling functions."

As the first owner in the country of this top-of-the-line technology, DLSL opens its doors to interested institutions or agencies for inquiries or educational purposes, according to DLSL's Chief Strategy and Advancement Officer (CSAO), Arnold Capuloy. Thus, it serves as one of the best  instructive tools for DLSL students.  The move to acquire the innovative technology is one of the options that the institution is exploring aside from wind power and biomass that they are looking into. This route that DLSL is taking to sustainability is part of its framework that has impressed other countries at an international affair in Canada that the CSAO attended this July.

The Smartflower Pacific is based in Hawaii while the Smartflower technology is from Austria. It is their mission to facilitate the increased use and development of renewable energy in Hawaii and throughout the world.




Grade 10 Moving Up, SHS Commencement Rites
The young Lasallians were at the spotlight at two coinciding events, Grade 10 Moving Up and Senior High School Graduation Rites, held on June 6, 2017 as thousands of attendees gathered at the SENTRUM.

Donning their Junior High School uniform for the last time, 661 Grade 10 completers stood tall as they exude the Latin phrase "Crescit Gratia Virtuteque"(which means "He grew in faith and wisdom," lifted from the bible - Luke 2:40-42) written on the De La Salle Lipa Sablay that adorned their uniform. Meanwhile, the Batch 2017 of the SHS wearing their graduation robe was beaming with pride before their mentors and loved ones.

Fellow alumnus, Dr. Michael Charles Tabora, HS Class of 1993, graced the event as the guest speaker. His message was spoken in the millenials' language by using hash tags, #CareerGoals, #ParentalGuidance, #SalamatPoMamSir, #KapwaKoMahalKo and #UnaSaLahatDiyos to underscore and introduce new topics. His deeply rooted Lasallian core values of faith, service and communion in mission led him to pick a profession to preserve life as a doctor.  He even believes that the signature La Salle green color represents life and he is a proud bearer of it.  

As a well-known cardiologist, his take on the ups and downs in career and life in general were among his precious advice on how to reach success. It was all hard work, perseverance, education, sacrifice and the love for the craft that kept him on top of the game without losing values and morals.      

Following the footsteps of Dr. Tabora are the following young Lasallians who are poised for success.

DLSL Celebrates the Founder's Day: Patron Saint of Christian Teachers
The De La Salle Lipa community began its day on May 15, 2017 with a heartfelt veneration to the founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle.

In commemoration of the proclamation by Pope Pius XII on the very same day in 1950 declaring the founder as the Patron Saint of Christian Teachers, the DLSL family in their green shirt, commenced the celebration with a Holy Mass, attended by select students.

It was followed by a prayer service to signal the enthronement of his image, a portrait which now adorns a prominent place in each classroom on campus.

Subsequently, Lasallian Partners continued the event in the afternoon with a Eucharistic celebration at the Capilla de San Juan Bautista de La Salle, led by Fr. Eugene Hechanova. The St. Francis Minor Seminary Rector summed up the gospel with three words: childlikeness, humility, and greatness; the characteristics that the founder possessed.

Symbolic offerings were made in honor of St. La Salle: Bible - for spirit of faith; Plant - for spirit of zeal for service; and Star - for spirit of communion in mission.

And to conclude a significant celebration among Lasallians that befits a patron saint who made a revolutionary contribution in the field of education, the DLSL family shared a feast together and bonded over the inspiration that the founder has left behind.

Accountancy Students Score Spots in Leadership Summit
Three promising students of the College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management (CBEAM), major in Accountancy were selected in the 11th Aboitiz Future Leaders Business Summit.

The nationwide search yielded 91 participants including CBEAM's 19-year old students, Justin Cedric Yabut, Editor-in-Chief of Lavoxa Tabloid and Broadsheet; Diane Patricia Reyes, Vice President for Non-Academics of JPIA - DLSL chapter; and Charis Jane Banayat, Executive Finance Manager of the Council of Student Organizations.

Participants converged at the Marco Polo Plaza, Cebu City on the first day of the annual event then proceeded to Kool Adventure Camp, Balamban Cebu for the various activities held November 3-5, 2016 following this year's theme "Juan for the World."

The young Lasallians made the most of their rightfully earned feat as Yabut mentioned "I always take advantage of the opportunity to bond with my co-delegates so as to forge ties, and [build] friendships as well. It's very rare for most students to get to meet the country's best and brightest students of their age."

It was the difference in the experience in the case of Reyes that she weighed in, "It's not just a simple leadership camp but it is anchored in the business setting. We got to hear from Aboitiz executives and other leading businessmen [with] business concepts [which] majority of today's students only read in textbooks."

Meanwhile, Banayat got a glimpse of the future, "The AFLBS gave me a picture of how it works in the corporate world. We listened to them share their achievements and struggles while working in the different companies in the Aboitiz Group over lunch. Over dinner, we were taught lessons we can apply in school, in business and in life."

The organizers elucidated that "the carefully selected college students across the Philippines [will] learn about business and leadership. It is Aboitiz's way of affirming and inspiring continued belief in the unique and outstanding capabilities of the Filipino among today's youth. It is open to all Filipino graduating students below 25 years old taking Business/Management, Accounting, Information Technology, Engineering, Psychology, or Pre-Law."

Green Chevron Basketball Men's UCCL Back-to-Back Championship Appearance
The recently held United CALABARZON Collegiate League (UCCL), which took place at First Asia Institute of Technologies and Humanities (FAITH) was a memorable one for the College Basketball-Men as they placed first runner-up on the said event. The Green Chevrons fought a great Finals Series for the second straight season against the Manila-based team, the Olivarez College Sea Lions Paranaque.

On the first two games of the tournament, Captain Giorgio Salta dominated and received his back-to-back Player-of-the-Game award in an action-packed battle against the Lyceum of  the Philippines University-Laguna highlighted with 24 points and with six three pointers. Unfortunately, the veteran point guard got injured after 2 games and Coach Michael Gonzales had to rely on his star, big man Glenn Latayan who's one of the most dominant forwards in CALABARZON.

Hurting both of his knees, the veteran scorer Adrian De Castro of the Chevrons was unable to give his 100% during the last game of elimination so the coach decided to put huge amount of playing time on Ely Quitain and Rommel Sabido. Playing without their two reliable scorers, Rael Macalindong, who is on his fourth year as a Chevron, proved that their team was still unbeatable in their bracket. With the help of their other key players, Ramon Macario and Justin Magnaye, they secured their standings with ZERO LOSS and played the best games of their career in the elimination round.

During the Quarter-Finals, the Chevrons faced their bracket-rival, the Spartans of Lyceum of the Philippines University-Laguna and once again they had a thrilling game which resulted in a DLSL victory. Entering the Semi Finals with an undefeated record, the Lipa Based Team have to face the top teams of the other two brackets namely, the Batangas City's elite team, the University of Batangas Brahmans and the defending UCCL Champions, the Olivarez Sea Lions Paranaque. On the first game of the semis against Olivarez College, the Sea Lions gave La Salle their first heart-breaking loss. With the thought of bouncing back from their previous game, their veterans decided to play despite the injuries and battled the Brahmans, and fortunately they gave the Batangas City-based team their worst loss of the season.

As expected, the Chevrons faced the Olivarez College again on a bloody best of three finals match up.  During the first game of the series, the Olivarez used their height advantage against the smaller chevrons and dominated game one. On the second game, still playing with an injured left knee, La Salle's Captain showed that they can still match the confidence of the team from Paranaque, making baskets after baskets with the help of his nine year teammate Glenn Latayan. But despite all the efforts, DLSL fell short against the Olivarez College and the Sea Lions won their second straight UCCL championship.

After this jam-packed tournament, the DLSL College Basketball-Men will still be playing and hoping to get their first ever Major League Championship in the upcoming NCAA-SOUTH Season 18.

Another BOT member, Br. Augustine Boquer FSC, turned over the Medallion and Chain of Office - symbolizing the continuity of tradition, the chain of office is engraved with the names of the former presidents, and years served. It is one of the oldest symbols of authority.

Health & Wellness Roadshow
The De La Salle Lipa Institute of Culinary Arts, in collaboration with the Wellness Management Institute, conducted a "Health and Wellness Roadshow" at SM City Lipa on July 23, 2016. It was in celebration of Nutrition Month and the 10th anniversary of De La Salle Lipa Institute of Culinary Arts.

The event included lectures, cooking demo, massage demo and performances from DLSL Danz Com and Salindayaw Dance Company.

At the first part of the program, one of the seasoned chefs of DLSL, Chef Jason Dimaculangan gave a lecture on the importance of eating healthy food.  The lecture was followed by a cooking demo of three recipes with the assistance of student chefs, Dariane Castillo and Sheila Carandang.

After the cooking demonstration, internationally certified therapist, Reanerose Dragon from the Wellness Management Institute gave a lecture and demonstration on how to do a basic massage to release stress among students and parents alike.

Meanwhile, the Wellness Management Institute showcased their programs through an exhibit.  There was also a registration area and booth set-up by the Strategic Communications Department to entertain inquiries about the different program offerings of De La Salle Lipa.

The program concluded with the awarding of certificate to the attendees from St. Mary's Montessori and Little Sparrow Pedie Care Center.




Individuals, Group Conferred with Gawad Alumni
This year, three individuals and for the first time, a group were bestowed the Blessed Brother Arnould Reche FSC Distinguished Annual Alumni Award or Gawad Alumni.

De La Salle Lipa's select administrators gathered with the alumni and guests on July 15, 2016 at the Diokno Auditorium to grant deserving alumni with a prominent recognition based on the "evidence of a broad, significant and far-reaching impact in the community, province, region, nation or international community by witnessing to the Lasallian ideals of faith, service and community; professional or personal activities to enhance individual competencies since graduation from DLSL, or in the case of the first batch in 1963, the Our Lady of the Rosary Academy; and there should be an evidence of integrity and competence and lives to foster patriotism, justice and sound normal and Lasallian values."

The story behind the title - Blessed Brother Arnould Reche FSC - was the main topic in the remarks given by the Chief Strategy and Advancement Officer, Arnold Capuloy, after the heartfelt greetings to the attendees. His explanation underscored the sacrifices and sanctity of the Blessed Brother which was substantiated by his own anecdotes after visiting the grave several times of the soon-to-be saint.   

Subsequently, this title was bestowed upon four rightful awardees in three different categories, handed by the DLSL representatives, Dr. Alicia Botardo, Vice Chancellor for Academics and Research, and Mayolisa Mantuano, Integrated School Principal.

One of the two awardees for Government and Public Service category was from High School Batch 1970, Dante M. Lantin, Assistant Undersecretary of the Department of Transportation and Communication (he was technically an awardee last year but could not make it to the awarding rites due to unforeseen events). His untainted and devotion to public service garnered several recognition through the years aside from Gawad Alumni.

Another awardee for the same category was from High School Batch 1974, Joel L. Tan-Torres, Chairman of Board of Accountancy (BOA) of the Philippine Regulatory Commission. This tax expert, who topped the May 1979 Certified Public Accountant Licensure Examination, was appointed as BOA Chairman by the President of the Philippines in May 2014.

An alumnus from High School Batch 1977, Atty. Alberto T. Muyot, Assistant Undersecretary of the Department of Education, was the awardee for the Education category. His valuable contribution through his child protection advocacy and the international human rights law as his expertise in the area of humanitarian law made him the worthy awardee for the said category.

And for the first time in history of the Gawad Alumni, a group, particularly, the High School Batch 1964 was granted the recognition through the President's Special Award. The batch, represented by Lito Abad, Rick Leyesa and Raul Vizconde, who gave a poignant speech, were on hand to accept the award. Since 2003, the group has started their scholarship grant named after their mentor, Br. Stephen Rabisa FSC Gift of Education. To date, 90 students have benefited from their endowment, and their graduates are gainfully employed.

Previous awardees, Dr. Roberto Magsino of Mary Mediatrix Medical Center and Roger Basco of DLSL were present to congratulate the new recipients of the Gawad Alumni.





Reiteration of Policy
This is to reiterate the policy on children of Lasallian Partners staying at the offices/faculty rooms. Please be guided by the provision on the DLSL Employees Manual Appendix R letter C which states that:

Children of Personnel
"Children of personnel are not allowed to linger inside the offices of their parents."

Immediate heads/Office heads are requested to remind Lasallian Partners on said provision.

For you strict compliance. Thank you very much.

ORP releases third issue of Integrated School research journal
The third research journal of the Integrated School (IS) was released last June 2016.

Out of twenty-seven (27) full papers that were completed by the Integrated School faculty and librarian for SY 2015-2016, seven (7) were included in the IS research journal after undergoing peer review process.

The paper  "Leadership Styles of De La Salle Lipa Middle Level Administrators" written by Ms. Haidee M. Angeles investigated the leadership style of 30 middle level administrators of De La Salle Lipa and found out that most of the administrators used transformational style of leadership.

Mr. Wenifredo Angeles' paper, "Social Loafing in the High School Classroom" looked into the state of social loafing phenomenon in the classroom and identified appropriate strategy to address this problem. The findings revealed that the social loafing - reducing strategies include: 1) making groups smaller, 2) using peer evaluation instrument, 3) combining individual and group grading, 4) distributing different talent/skills in different group and 5) executing close supervision of group work activities.

To determine the difference in reading comprehension performance of grade 6 pupils in Social Studies using the first and second language, Ms. Rosalinda D. Cornejo studied the "Reading Comprehension Performance of Grade 6 in Social Studies using Informative Text in Filipino (L1) and English (L2)". Results of the research showed that there’s no significant difference in the comprehension of grade 6 pupils using either the first or the second language.

Economics teacher, Ms. Eva G. Jonson focused on "Enhancing the Interpersonal Skills of Grade 10 Students in Economics Class through Structured Cooperative Works". Her paper aimed to enhance the interpersonal skills of Grade 10 students through structured cooperative activities. It was found out that the students have mastery in the use of leadership skills, trust building skills and turn taking skills but are not yet accustomed in decision making skills and active listening skills. Based on the result, the researcher was able to develop different cooperative works that will improve the students' interpersonal skills.

Two researches were written in Filipino by Ms. Rizza R. Limbo and Ms. Leah Sebuc entitled "Mga Hamon sa Pangkatang Gawain sa Filipino 5: Rekomendasyon sa Pagpapaunlad ng Output sa Asignatura"  and "Ebalwasyon ng Pluma sa Pagsulat sa Pagpapaunlad ng Kasanayan  ng mga Mag-aaral sa Ikaanim na Baitang" respectively. Their papers' summaries are as follows:

"Tinalakay sa papel ni Ms. Limbo ang mga suliranin sa pagsasagawa ng pangkatang gawain sa Filpino 5. Mula sa pag-aaral, lumabas na ang pangunahing suliranin  sa pagsasagawa ng pangkatang gawain ay  ang pagkakaroon ng kampihan sa loob ng grupo. Mula sa natuklasang suliranin nabuo ang sumusunod na mga rekomendasyon: pagkakaroon ng indibidwal na rubric para sa bawat miyembro, pagtatalaga ng guro ng mga gawaing dapat gawin ng miyembro, pagkakaroon ng iba’t ibang miyembro sa bawat pangkatang gawain at pagkakaroon ng ebalwasyon sa bawat pangkatang gawain."

"Samantala ang papel ni Ms. Sebuc ay nakatuon sa ebalwasyon ng programang PLUMA sa pagsulat ng mga mag-aaral. Nagkaroon ng pagsusuri ng mga sulatin ng mga mag-aaral sa ikaanim  na baitang upang matukoy ang mga kasanayan sa pagsulat na mahina ang mga mag-aaral. Mula sa mga natukoy na kasanayang dapat linangin nagkaroon ng interbensyon sa pamamagitan ng programang PLUMA at mula rito ay natuklasang naging epektibo ang programa sa paglinang ng kasanayan sa pagsulat ng mga mag-aaral."

Ms. Analiza A. Frane, Integrated School librarian, studied the "Reading Profile and Motivation of DLSL Grade 7 Students". Her study determined the reading preferences in English of DLSL Grade 7 students, the motivating factor in reading English materials. The research found out that 33.8% of the total 340 Grade 7 students is medium-heavy readers and that they have high motivation in reading.

Supervised by the Office of Research and Publications, members of the 2015-2016 IS Research Journal Editorial Board are: Ms. Violeta Remo (editor in chief), Ms. Santa Embalsado (associate editor), Ms. Jaylyn Sanchez (layout and cover design artist), Ms. Rosalinda Cornejo (GS- editorial board member) and Mr. Fred Amul (HS- editorial board member).





ORP holds annual research forum for faculty and ASF
The Office of Research and Publications (ORP) spearheaded the 2016 Research Forum with the theme "Lasallian Studies and Research: A Gateway to Transformative Education".

Integrated School (IS) faculty members had their presentation on May 19 while the College faculty and Academic Services Faculty (ASF) had theirs on May 24. Present during the Integrated School’s research forum as keynote speaker was Dr. Maricar S. Samson, Associate Principal for Senior High School in DLSU -Science and Technology Center. There were 29 research outputs presented during the said activity. The researches of IS faculty focused on students’ academic performance in order to attain quality education.

The invited keynote speaker for the College and Academic Services Faculty (ASF) forum was Dr. John Addy Garcia, Dean of the College of Education DLSU, Manila. Nineteen (19) research outputs anchored on Business, Health, Safety, Security and Environment Culture and Humanities and Education and Lasallian Studies were presented by college faculty while five (5) research outputs were presented by ASF. 

Likewise, Dr. Garcia discussed with the guidance counselors current research trends and utilization of guidance office data for research while the librarians had their session on utilization of library data and trends in library services with Ms. Rhea Rowena U. Apolinario, Assistant Professor I at UP School of Library and Information Studies.
The research forum is a venue for researchers to share new knowledge and an opportunity for everyone to participate in an exchange of ideas in a scholarly passion.

Transfer of the Safety and Security Office from OVCAd to Office of the President and Renaming it to the Institutional Safety, Security, and Emergency Services Office
One of the key strategic directions I've set for De La Salle Lipa is on "Engaging Diverse Stakeholders in our Shared Mission". As such, I envision the Institutional Safety, Security, and Emergency Services Office (ISSESO) to take a pro-active role in implementing international safety, security, and Emergency Management standards within the campus and our surrounding communities. 

The current set-up places the Safety & Security Office under the General Services Directorate (GSD). To install internal control system that would ensure check and balance upon the vital operations of GSD, the transfer of the Institutional Safety & Security Office is deemed necessary. 

This is going to be an interim arrangement until its proper endorsement to the DLSL Board of Trustees in its July 2016 meeting under the Institutional Re-organizational Plan.




Br. Dante Jose R. Amisola FSC
President and Chancellor

Transfer of ICTC from OVCAd to the Office of the President
One of the key directions of the Institution starting SY 2016-2017 is on Driving for Social Innovation and Relevant 21st Century Education. To be able to do that, the Institution is following a digital roadmap that would lead us to become a Digital Campus. As such, we recognize the vital role of the Information Communications Technology Center (ICTC) in fulfilling the said direction. I am also introducing the Office of Technology and Innovation that shall bolster the rapid innovation, growth and momentum of the Institution towards becoming a Digital Campus. 

In view of this, I wish to formally inform the De La Salle Lipa Community of the formal move of the Information Communications Technology Center (ICTC) under the Chief Technology and Innovation Officer (CTlO), a new office under direct supervision of the Office of the President, effective upon issuance of this memo. Whilst in the process of looking for a qualified CTIO, I shall temporarily assume direct supervision of the ICTC with the assistance of an ICT Advisory Board composed of qualified industry practitioners. 

This is going to be an interim arrangement until its proper endorsement to the DLSL Board of Trustees in its July 2016 meeting under the Institutional Re-organizational Plan.

2016 Institutional General Assembly
This year's institutional general assembly held a day after the feast of the founder, St. John Baptist De La Salle, May 16, 2015, marked the commencement of a new leadership under the helm of the President and Chancellor, Br. Dante Jose Amisola FSC.

Prior to the annual recognition of the service awardees, the institution's new top administrator addressed the De La Salle Lipa personnel for the first time, who were gathered at the SENTRUM. His message underscored his four directions: (1) Driving Social Innovation & Relevant 21st Century Education; (2) Embracing Our Shared Humanity & Championing Social Inclusion & Justice Initiatives; (3) Creating Sustainable Futures; and (4) Engaging Diverse Stakeholders In Our Shared Mission.

Subsequently, the new Brother President had a close encounter with the Lasallian partners, especially the top awardees with 35 years of continuous service under their belt, namely, Emily T. Babasa, Sports and Culture Director; Rogelio Basco, Arts Coordinator; and Mario C. Katigbak, Integrated School faculty member.

Although Katigbak was not able to attend the event, both Babasa and Basco responded keenly on their rare achievement. Basco emotionally enumerated one by one the people that have influenced him and those who have stood as his second parents on campus. These were the Lasallian partners who molded him to be a distinguished personality in the school community. Meanwhile, Babasa was not only nostalgic about the highlights of her career, but she likewise shared the secret to longevity in service such as the love for teaching and the satisfaction of fulfilling one's dream.

DLSL Holds PAHINA Culmination, Forges Ties with Aeta Community
The Community Involvement Office, in partnership with NSTP's Lingkod Lasalyano, a college student organization, hosted the culminating activity of the PAHINA Program last April 13, 2016 at the Sen. Diokno Auditorium. 

The PAHINA (PAgbasa para sa HINaharap ng mga Aeta/bata) Program, a Literacy Project which was initially funded by the Rotary Club of Chelwood Bridge, UK, aims at establishing mini-libraries within communities in much need of said resources, and following it through with literacy sessions that aims to improve the reading skills and comprehension of the identified student group of the community.  The first beneficiary of which were the nine grade 2 students of the Aeta Tribal Community at Barangay Puting Kahoy in Rosario, Batangas.

The program was implemented in several stages: starting off with a book drive where more than 1300 books were collected, plastic covering of the donated books, a clean-up drive wherein the Day Care Center that will house the mini-library corner was cleaned, painted and linoleum flooring replaced, the literacy/reading sessions held at the tribal community, and capping the program off with a culminating ceremony in recognition of the participation and improvement in the reading capabilities of the students.

During said ceremony, almost 40 members of the tribe graced the occasion, showcasing tribal performances of dancing, cultural traditions and clothing.  Each grade 2 participant then was awarded a certificate in recognition of their participation in the program.  Three students, Lorraine, Jolina and Jericho, then each read to the audience an excerpt from their chosen story books after a video documentation of their initial reading capabilities were shown, highlighting the improvement in their reading skills.

It was followed through with a Memorandum of Agreement Signing between De La Salle Lipa, through the school president, Br. Kenneth S. Martinez, FSC DMin and Ms. Violeta D. Ramirez, the Vice Chancellor for Mission, and the Aeta Tribal Community of Rosario Batangas, through the representations of Barangay Councilors Rosenda Pasia and Calixto Briones Jr. in behalf of Barangay Captain Rowel Gamab and Mayor Manuel B. Alvarez of the municipality of Rosario.

The Memorandum of Agreement, known as the De La Salle Lipa - Indigenous Peoples Partnership Program (IPPP), solidifies the partnership of DLSL with the Aeta Tribal Community of Barangay Puting Kahoy in Rosario which aims at implementing collaborative programs and activities that will improve the social and economic well-being of the community.

"Transitions: In Retrospect and A Glimpse of the Future"
The inevitability of De La Salle Lipa's leadership has been presented previously through an official communication from the Board of Trustees Chair, Br. Raymundo Suplido FSC.

Relative to this, the institution looks back at some of the highlights of the term of DLSL President and Chancellor, Br. Joaquin "Kenneth" Martinez FSC, D. Min. which will conclude by the end of the Academic Year 2015-2016.

Through the "Transitions" webpage using the link transitions.dlsl.edu.ph, (which will be up and running by this week on the website www.dlsl.edu.ph) photos of eventful occasions will be showcased; reminiscent of the past up to the most recent events. 

By May of this year, the focus of "Transitions" will shift to the incoming president, Br. Dante Amisola FSC. It will provide trivia and brief background to introduce the new president.

The webpage will be updated weekly and may be viewed through the institution's official social media accounts @dlslofficial on Twitter and Instagram, and on Facebook.





Philippines' Spa and Wellness Pioneer Top Bills iACE Seminar
The world's consistently growing industry - spa and wellness - was recently featured in the Institute for Advanced Continuing Education.

No less than the pioneer in the spa and wellness in the country was the resource speaker - Catherine Brillantes-Turvill -  owner-operator of Nurture Wellness Village and the organic farm - Nurture Farmacy in Tagaytay.

Turvill's vast experience in every facet of the in demand industry made her the perfect choice for the task. Aside from the updates that she had provided, the biggest revelation was the innovations that could be introduced or incorporated in the business of the attendees who came all the way from Manila and different parts of Batangas.

Rooms for improvement were clearly pointed out by the speaker as she generously detailed the various side of the business that could be improved without adding capital or literally expanding the shop, as they could conveniently collaborate or tap other centers that could compliment theirs.

As a seasoned practitioner and years of further study, Turvill stepped back to view the big picture and look at the business in a macro level in order to arrive at the realization that the core offering of their industry is not merely a relaxation or pampering; ultimately, through its holistic approach, it serves as prevention to the deadly and top causes of diseases.

The industry has evolved into an intervention system that provides balance in the hustle and bustle lifestyle of the clients who are tackling a stressful life on a daily basis. The spa and wellness business has grown into a conglomerate network that is viewed by people not only as a diversion but as a necessary part of one's well-being to live a healthy and balanced life.

As De La Salle Lipa is the only school in the region offering programs such as Certificates in Holistic Massage and Spa Management, Turvill commended and endorsed it to the attendees who were impressed with the UK-based curriculum, modern laboratory facilities, the internationally-certified and Singapore-based instructors, and reasonably priced programs, compared to the expensive courses being offered by other Asian countries.

Interested applicants may inquire through the Wellness Management Institute at (043) 756-5555, local 341.






College Volley Clinch First SLCUAA Title
The De La Salle Lipa College Volleyball Team, now led by head coach Rosel Sumcad, won its first championship title in the Southern Luzon Colleges and Universities Athletic Association (SLCUAA). 

Starting the championship match with solid blocks from middle players, Derick Delizo and Edel Austria, the Green Chevrons capitalized on their combination plays ending the first set 25-17 against the Altas' of University of Perpetual Help System Dalta. 

The spikes of Chevrons' Meico Laylo, crosscourt attacks and solid blocks favor the second set to the Lipa-based Chevrons ending at 25-22.  Determined to win its first SLCUAA championship, the Green Chevrons initially made quick hits courtesy of Joshua Orario followed by off-the-block hits of Adrian Macaraig during the third set.  Edel Austria and Nico Aquino's down the line hits and combination plays gave a 4-point advantage to DLSL.  Delizio, tipping the ball to the other side, ended the championship game at 25-22.

Adrian Macaraig, Meico Laylo, Primo Rueca and Joshua Orario are given individual awards as part of the Mythical Six.  The college volleyball team is supported by one of Coach Rosel's former player, Giovanni Librea.

DLSL Alumni among Real Estate Broker Licensure Passers
The De La Salle Lipa community congratulates the most recent passers of the Real Estate Broker Licensure Examination held February 28, 2016, given by the Board of Real Estate Service; among them were 18 DLSL alumni and Atty. Ramel C. Muria, Chair of the Legal Management Department.

In the announcement made by the Philippine Regulation Commission, a total of 5,499 out of 9,749 passed the said licensure examination.

Relative to this success, DLSL's College of Business, Economics, Accountancy and Management now offers Bachelor of Science in Real Estate Management. For inquiries, please visit or contact the Institutional Admissions and Testing Office at (043) 756-5555 local 238.




Use of Pedestrian Lanes in Campus
To ensure the safety of pedestrians inside the campus, designated pedestrian lanes or crosswalks have been painted with "zebra" lines for the convenience of the general public. Therefore, every member of the DLSL Community is urged to strictly observe and use the said markings.

In view of this, please be guided by the following:
  • Pedestrians MUST STRICTLY USE the yellow "zebra" lines whenever crossing at areas where there is vehicular activity. Nonetheless, pedestrians are still encouraged to "STOP, LOOK both ways, and LISTEN" for any oncoming vehicle prior to crossing.

  • Pedestrians MUST AVOID TEXTING WHILE WALKING. Texting while walking is hazardous since the phone is a distraction to the pedestrian instead of paying attention at the walk path.

  • Pedestrians MUST BE SENSITIVE AND MINDFUL of yielding vehicles by crossing swiftly so as not to cause build-up of traffic.

  • For a more orderly crossing, pedestrians must cross by keeping to the right of the "zebra" lines at all times.

  • Motorists MUST STRICTLY FOLLOW the designated "stop lines". These are the thick lines that extend across the pedestrian lanes and ensure safe distance between the pedestrians and the motor vehicle.

  • Motorists MUST NOT STOP, MUST NOT LOAD, MUST NOT UNLOAD and MUST NOT STOP over the "zebra" lines.

  • The campus enforces a "PEDESTRIAN PRIORITY" policy inside the premises. Motorists MUST OBSERVE PEDESTRIAN COURTESY by yielding or giving way to pedestrians at ALL TIMES.

  • The school implements a "NO BLOWING OF HORNS" policy. Not only does it distract ongoing classes and activities, it is also rude and impolite to blow horns at pedestrians crossing on pedestrian lanes.

It is expected that these pedestrian safety guidelines are observed not only inside the campus but outside as well.

For your information and guidance.

DLSL's Victorious MTAP Regional Finals
The series of MTAP Challenges that the De La Salle Lipa Math wiz kids have faced brought them to yet another successful conclusion of the league.

The very own words of the Math Elementary Department summed up the sweet victory they recently achieved, "Once again our contestants reaped the fruit of their rigid training in the 2016 Regional MTAP Challenge held in PVMMS in Lipa City last February 19, 2016." 

The following pupils have once again brought pride and honor to the institution and their families: Gerard Elmer Ilagan and Paolo Miguel Torres, Grade 6, placed First Runner-up in the Individual Category and Second Runner-up in the Team Oral Round; while Andre Jerahmy Amante and Ashley De Leon, Grade 5, were Third Runner-up in the Individual and Team Oral Round.

Hardworking coaches, Leonie Landicho, Ernie Lein Saculo, Magdalena Mayuga and Dennis Dimaala, and the pupils' beaming parents, who are all partly responsible for the Math wizards' continuing success, are aware of all the sacrifices they have to endure to sustain such feat. No amount of compliment will be enough to appreciate their efforts. Despite of this, the institution will continue to look up to them with pride and gratitude.



Junior High Studes Garner Awards in Karibok
The long-standing Batangrueno contest "Karibok Ang Tuktok," organized by the University of the Philippines Batangan student group from UP-Diliman, gathered the schools’ bets coming from the Province of Batangas.

Participants turned up on January 9, 2016 at the Sovereign Shepherd School of Values and Learning at Sorosoro Ibaba, Batangas City - this year's host school.

On the 34th presentation of the annual competition, several junior high school students of De La Salle Lipa earned awards following the theme"Intelektwalisasyon ng Wika: Paglinang ng Filipino sa Akademya at Lipunan" in their respective events.

"Karibok ang Tuktok 2016" adjudged winners were, Alfonso Miguel Villanueva - first place in Extemporaneous Speaking, as "his speech [spoken in Filipino] dealt with the significance of the intellectualization most especially in the worsening mode of transportation and traffic in the Philippines;" Andrae Jamal Tecson - second place in Photo Essay, with his submitted picture depicting "intellectualization of the language is never a fantasy;" Esethkiel Cuevas - second place in Poster Making on "the possible effects of the intellectualization of the language to our nation;" while the quiz bee group ranked fourth place.

The group's coach, Darwin Cantos, Integrated School faculty member, provided gist of the students' presentation in each event and elucidated that "Karibok ang Tuktok began as a quiz bee competition in 1982" and gradually included other events over the decades.





Perez, Rocafort, Outstanding Mathlete Finalists
The Search for the Outstanding Mathlete 2016, held at the Unviersity of Los Banos on 16 January 2016, gathered 138 secondary student participants from Region IV-A.

Aside from them, the math coaches commend the active participation of the following who have also joined in this year's contest: Carl Joshua Africa, Lanz Lorenzo Bosita, Lloeden Lee Cabacungan, Marc Christopher Ferrer, Angelina Precilla, and Ron Gian Catibog. 

The annual competition organized by the UP-Los Banos aims to"stimulate active interest in mathematics by creative solutions of mathematical problems; promote annual contacts between and among mathematics students and faculty from different schools and universities; enhance the participants' knowledge in different areas in mathematics and its applications; and forge camaraderie among secondary students in a competitive but friendly manner."

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.

Parking Violation Notice
This is to inform the community that effective immediately, our campus security agency shall be issuing parking violation notice to the driver / owner of vehicles found to be in violation of the campus parking rules and regulations.

There are three warning levels that will be issued to violators. The first offense shall serve as an initial warning and will be signed by the Director for Services. The second offense shall serve as a stern warning to repeat offenders and will be signed by the Vice Chancellor for Administration. The third and final offense will ultimately result in the immediate revocation of the parking privilege and will be signed by the President / Chancellor.

Parking violation notices will be issued in progressive counts regardless of the previous violation. Once parking privilege is revoked, no further processing and issuance of parking permit or parking sticker will be done.

Therefore, the community is again reminded of the following parking policies:

Traffic Scheme for CBEAM Bound Vehicles
In connection with the recently issued memorandum on the revised campus parking scheme and with the opening of the CBEAM gates to vehicular traffic, we have recently coordinated with the Traffic Management Division (TMD) of Lipa City regarding the traffic routing for CBEAM bound vehicles.

Since the TMD has designated the front of the CBEAM gates as the U-turn area for Lipa-bound vehicles, all vehicles coming from the west (e.g. Batangas, Mataas-na-Kahoy, Fernando Air Base, Banay Banay, STAR Tollway) will NOT BE ALLOWED to turn left directly to the CBEAM gate. Instead, all vehicle owners are advised to take the main campus vehicular entrance gates and take the U-turn slot towards the exit gate and take the highway westbound to CBEAM gate. The internal access road to CBEAM via the G. Zara and El Filibusterismo buildings is still intended for PEDESTRIAN TRAFFIC at the moment for the safety of the students, faculty and staff and also due to the ongoing construction of the Student Center.

Likewise, vehicles exiting the CBEAM gates may turn right enroute to Batangas City and may turn left going to Lipa City.

Your full cooperation on this matter is expected.

For your information, guidance and strict compliance.

The Sparkling Green Talents
Shining bright in the recent mall show were the stars of De La Salle Lipa - the Green Talents - who performed their hearts out on September 19, 2015 at SM City Calamba.

As mall-goers went about their retail therapy or just hanging out with friends and families, the mall went to a stand still as soon as the beat of the PEP Squad drums reverberate inside, even resonating outside the premises. All the attention focused to the premier cheering crew of DLSL, as they strut to the Lasallian signature chant for fellow Lasallians and the mall's patrons. After setting the mood and getting the attention of the viewers, one by one or by group, the Green Talents wowed the crowd with their special numbers.

The audience was left mesmerized and enchanted with the following Green Talents' awe-inspiring performances: Danzcom-PEP Squad, Salindayaw Dance Company, Aubrey Caraan, Aedel Caraan, Sendhara Trillanes, Jaimee Nicole Julayco, Mary Precious Maghinay, Jan Virnaly Jareno, Jet Marcus Marasigan, Rachel Dimaculangan, Zharina De Castro, Daruis Matibag and Vox Fusion.

The Green Talents Road Show was launched to nurture and showcase the cultural talents and potentials of the students, providing them with avenues to overcome fear and stage fright.

Watch out for the next mall show at SM City San Pablo on November 21, 2015



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.

The newly constructed chapel of the Retreat Complex was blessed on October 3, 2015 by Rev. Fr. Leonido "Noni" Dolor, former DLSL chaplain, subsequently followed by a celebration of the Holy Mass and dinner.

The event was attended by the Villavicencio Family, headed by Mr. Ramon and Mrs. Carol Villavicencio, some members of the DLSU High School '58 and College '62, DLSL Administrators, and De La Salle Brothers.

The day's event started with Remarks of the Occasion delivered by Mrs. Violeta D. Ramirez, Vice Chancellor for Mission, and unveiling of the marker by Br. Joaquin S. Martinez FSC, D.Min., and Mr. and Mrs. Ramon Villavicencio.

The chapel is dedicated for the worship of the Holy Trinity and in memory of the parents of Mr. Villavicencio, Mr. Edgardo and Mrs. Pacita Villavicencio.  Thus, the chapel named Capilla de Santisima Trinidad.

It is the aim of the Academe Foundation to form the young through education and values formation.  In response to their aim they are giving gift of education to deserving young people.  At DLSL, they have several scholars in the Integrated School and Colleges.  Mr. Ramon Villavicencio, chairman of the foundation, went beyond giving gift of education.  He wanted the foundation to be part of the spiritual formation of the young.  The foundation gifted DLSL with a chapel at the Retreat Complex.

Before giving the final blessing at the Holy Eucharist, the Brother President thanked the Villavicencio family for the special gift.  As a sign of gratitude, he gifted the family with a replica of kneeling St. John Baptist de La Salle.  Dinner followed the Holy Eucharist.  The De La Salle Voices serenaded the visitors with their rendition of several Original Pilipino Music (OPM).

When the Blue Eagles Land on the Green Chevrons' Territory
There was nothing but admiration and adoration by the Lasallians of the De La Salle Lipa community to the congenial Blue Eagles who positively responded to the call for exhibition games for a cause dubbed "Games for the Chevrons," organized by the Sports Office.

Through their efforts, aside from the Blue Eagles' high school boys' basketball team, they also managed to invite fellow Lasallians, De La Salle Santiago Zobel - Green Archers' high school boys' basketball team, and the Mapua Cardinals' volleyball college women's team on September 11, 2015.

The initial match between DLSL's very won Green Chevron high school girls' volleyball team and the Mapua Cardinals' team invigorated the audience early on in the much anticipated game. It was the host, Green Chevrons who ruled the match up winning after four sets with scores 21-25 | 25-21 | 25-14 | 25-21.

A basketball game ensued between DLSL's faculty and staff selection and PENCIL's team. DLSL's selection won with scores 62-49.

Concluding the event was the featured basketball game between the junior UAAP teams of Green Archers and the Blue Eagles.  The action-packed match up not only brought the season's promising line-up of basketball players, but it likewise showed that these young ones could also have a good time while playing for a worthy cause. The Lasallians won, 69-66. 

Another highlight of the charity event was the appearance of the Ateneo Lady Eagles' star player and Batanguena, Alyssa Valdez and her teammates, DLSL's former Green Chevron, high school girls' volleyball team, Jhoana Maraguinot (Batch 2012) and Ella De Jesus. Valdez shared an inspirational message at the onset of the game, encouraging the young volleyball players to always work hard, never lose hope and enjoy every game that come their way.

MTRCB Talks on Classification Ratings
To strengthen its campaign in educating the public on the revised classification ratings for television and films, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) conducted a forum on "Matalinong Panonood Para sa Pamilya at Lipunan nina Juan at Juana" on 27 July 2015 at Diokno Boardroom.

Attended by selected students from the AB Communication, Multimedia Arts and Student Coordinating Board, MTRCB Board Members Maloli Espinosa, Ricardo "Jojo" Solomon Jr. and Mario Hernando, reiterated the powers and functions of MTRCB on motion pictures, television programs and publicity materials.  MTRCB also has the power to suspend television shows due to offensive and obscene language, inappropriate comments, and brawl during live shows.  Participants were also reoriented on the importance of television and movie classification ratings which are based on theme, language, nudity, violence, horror and drugs.

During the open forum, MTRCB Board Members empower the students as "agents" by reporting cases where classification ratings are not prominently displayed on cinemas and in cases where cinemas accept young audiences in restricted movies.  Everyone was reminded on how to be "responsible viewers" and be example to young viewers.

To report cases violating MTRCB rules, you can reach MTRCB at (02) 376-7380 or email them at admin@mtrcb.gov.ph.  To know more about MTRCB functions, visit www.mtrcb.gov.ph.





Young Lasallians Shine in 5th National Student Gathering

Safety Reminders for Tricycle Commuters
This is to remind all tricycle-commuters that these tips should be strictly observed before riding a tricycle public transport:

  1. Choose the tricycle that has a legitimate LTO license plate number and MTOP (Motorized Tricycle Operators Permit) body permit number (4-digit number) on it. Find ways of taking down its plate and MTOP body permit number by writing or saving it on your mobile phone.

  2. Avoid riding a tricycle that is colorum because it doesn't have license or MTOP permit and if in case of an accident, the operators cannot claim insurance for their passengers.

  3. Please also take note that the maximum number of passengers is four (4), including the driver. Ideally there should be only two (2) passengers inside the tricycle and one (1) at the back of the driver.

  4. Trust your instincts. Always bring a companion with you especially for female commuters.

  5. In case of emergency, you may contact any of these numbers:
School Security : 0939-8267806 / 0929-6076994 / 0915-3152145

DLSL Gathers for the Mass of the Holy Spirit
To fittingly commence the new school year, the De La Salle Lipa community held four celebrations of the Mass of the Holy Spirit at the SENTRUM to seek guidance and inspiration.

On June 22, pupils from Grades 3-6 took part in the initial installment of the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, led by Fr. Joel Villanueva who reminded the young Lasallians on how they originally received the Holy Spirit through the sacrament of Baptism. He encouraged them to constantly listen and follow the Holy Spirit to show how much they love God and to make Him proud.

Grades 7-10 students participated in the second part held June 23. Alumnus, Fr. Antonio Umali was the celebrant who shared to the junior high school students the role of the Holy Spirit as the true inspiration and guide for them; and encouraged to achieve their goal to learn, as their role as students.

On June 24, the third and the last day of the Mass of the Holy Spirit, held in the morning and afternoon, coincided with the Solemnity of the Birth of St. John the Baptist, one of the two similar occasions commemorated in a year, according to Fr. Darwin De Leon. The Holy Mass he celebrated in the morning was participated in by the first batch of college students, along with the Senor High School students. Fr. Darwins homily urged the young Lasallians to pray for virtues that they should possess, gifts from the Holy Spirit that are beyond mans intelligence.

The second batch of the college students took part in the last installment of the Mass in the afternoon, dubbed by Fr. Russel Matuloy as the Pentecost Mass. Attendees easily related to the homily as the priest elaborated on the definition of disciple in Latin discipulus which is learner. Fr. Russel challenged everyone to be life-long learners active, hard working, engaged in all aspects of learning; someone who sees mistakes and setbacks as mere challenges and not failures.

Academic and Professional Records Update of Non-teaching Personnel
The Human Resource Department is working on the completion and update of the academic and professional records of all non-teaching personnel for 201 files and employee profiling. We are also in the process of doing an evaluation of the records in connection to the newly-implemented Non-Teaching Salary Scale which has a provision of giving a one-time cash incentive to co-workers who have earned relevant post-graduate degrees, certifications or passed a licensure exam.

The academic and professional program that will be granted possible cash incentive are those which have not been considered for any form of incentive yet and will still be evaluated based on the final approved guidelines.

In view of this, we are requesting all non-teaching co-workers who have not submitted the documents listed below to submit them to the HRD office until May 29, 2015.

For Post-Graduate Degrees
  • Certified copy of the original Transcript of Records (TOR) and Diploma
  • if the Diploma is not yet available, a certified copy of the original certificate of graduation will be accepted

For Certifications/Licensure
  • Presentation of the original and submission of a certified copy of the original proof of completion / PRC License

Thank you very much.

The graduates of Batch 2015 reveled in their momentous occasion as their dream unfolded right before their eyes on March 31 at the SENTRUM.

Tuesday Barong Uniform for Male Full-Time Faculty and Staff (SY2014-2015 to SY2015-2016)
Based on the survey and as recommended by the Male Uniform Committee, the dark blue barong uniform worn every Tuesday will be replaced by a new greenish beige barong. Sample prototype by the current supplier LaMarina can be viewed at the HRD Office starting Monday, April 6, 2015.

In this light, all male full-time faculty and staff are required to undergo the barong measurement during the Annual Physical Examination (APE) at the MB Exhibit Area (near the APE registration) on April 7, 2015 (from 9am to 4pm). Please take note that the old measurement will be the basis for those who will not be able to undergo the measurement. The cost of the barong will be deducted from the uniform allowance (for those qualified) on June 10, 2015 payroll.

Thank you very much.

To facilitate the scheduling of resources and facility maintenance tasks of the General Services Department this summer break, we call on the entire DLSL community to please turn in all work requests for the summer not later than 15 April 2015. We shall prioritize all requests related to the opening of the next academic year. More so, execution of work requests shall be subject to the availability of materials, manpower, and procurement lead time.

Please be guided accordingly.

Young Leaders Congress 2015 a Hit
The Student Government organized the very first Young Leaders' Congress with the theme "Thriving to Make the Dream Work," last February 10.

About 200 high school student leaders within the CALABARZON area attended the leadership training held at the Diokno Auditorium, De La Salle Lipa.

The purpose of the event was to provide the participants the opportunity to interact, engage, share ideas and help them maximize their potentials through the seminar and breakout sessions.

The first session was about 'Adapting to Challenges in Changing Times.' It was presented by Atty. Maria Concepcion Hernandez-Beloso and she pointed out the importance of following rules within the school and the community to become a good leader.

It was then followed by the panel discussion for the second session. The panelists were Rafael Zialcita, Carlo Inocencio and Janel Tumpalan from De La Salle University and Janna Villanueva, account manager in Resorts World Manila. The students were given the chance to ask questions to the panelists in line with the theme and this resulted in an engaging and rewarding interaction.

In the afternoon, the students were grouped into three for the breakout sessions. The breakouts were about 'Maximizing Team Potential,' 'Efficiency vs. Effectiveness,' and 'Making your Dream Work through Team Work.' The speakers for these sessions were Marianito Dio, Jr., Mioshi De Castro and Rizaldy Luistro, Jr., respectively.

The congress concluded with the student leaders' campus tour.

Panganiban Conferred Diplomate in Business Education
Through a "unanimous decision of the Philippine Academy of Professionals in Business Education (PAPBE) after a meticulous evaluation," De La Salle Lipas Social Science Area Chair, Hermogenes Panganiban, was "recognized and accredited" as Diplomate in Business Education (DBE), as stated in the official announcement made by PAPBE, dated February 4, 2015.

Diplomate is the highest in the hierarchy of recognition given by PAPBE, based on their adopted ranking from Senior Professional in Business Education, Associate Fellow, Fellow and ultimately, DBE.

A candidate of DBE has to satisfactorily meet the basic criteria, competencies and the standards on skills in the following areas: teaching experience, non-teaching professional experience, books published/authored, published researches, speaking engagements, and positions held in schools and professional organizations.

PAPBE is the accrediting body created under the auspices of the Philippine Council of Deans and Educators of Business (PCDEB), is in-charge of implementing accreditation of professionals in the discipline of Business Education based on their "merit, performance, and contribution" since it "believes that championing the cause and elevating the status of business educators and professionals shall further propel excellence in instruction, research, extension, and production in the area of Business Education" (PCDEB Souvenir Program, March 2011).

Panganiban will be formally conferred DBE at the 14th Annual PCDEB Conference on February 19-20, 2015 at Hotel Jen Manila. 

Back in December last year, the Social Science Area Chair was also elected Vice-President for Private Institutions by the Professors World Peace Academy Philippines and designated as one of its Ambassadors of Peace.

Turalba Foundation grants P200K to 40 DLSL scholars
Forty Lasallian scholars received the two-hundred thousand check donation from the Turalba Foundation during the 17th Chairmans Cup last January 24 at the Mt. Malarayat Golf & Country Club.

Arch. Antonio Turalba, Sr., together with his wife, handed the check donation to Henson F. Ola, Lasallian Assistance Management Program (LAMP) manager.

As part of the Turalba Foundations charity program, Turalba allotted two hundred thousand pesos from the proceeds of the Cup to provide financial assistance to forty deserving scholars that would subsidize five thousand pesos of their remaining fees for two semesters for the Saint Brother Migule Febres Cordero scholars and for the Saint Brother Jaime Hilario grantees.

The forty beneficiaries were composed of ten scholars from St. Brother Jaime Hilario Learning Community (SBJHLC) and thirty were from the college.

A decade after of holding this event, the foundation had produced 70 alumni wherein fifty-one college graduates are already gainfully employed and the remaining were nineteen high school graduates. Moreover, nine college scholars are expected to graduate this year.

Inspired by the testimonials of two alumni, Elizabeth Torres and Angelica Rebao, Turalba ensured Ola that they would add ten more scholars next year to increase the number of scholars up to fifty.

"The foundation has been of great help to me and to my studies. It inspires me to persevere more. I'm hoping that they will continue with this advocacy for there are more scholars who need their help," said Elaine Katigbak, fourth year Education student and scholar.

January 16, Pope's Day
The Apostolic Visit of Pope Francis to our country from January 15-19, 2015 has for its theme "Mercy and Compassion", the cherished ideals of Jesus. As we join the entire nation in this Papal Visit, De La Salle Lipa will celebrate Pope's Day on Friday, January 16, 2015.

On this day, we join members of the Lasallian Community to say a special prayer for the safety of the Holy Father. Let us also pray for nourishment and sustenance in our lives of the gift of Mercy and Compassion from the Heart of Jesus who is the source of inspiration and strength for our families and the Filipino people.

As a gift to Pope Francis and an act of mercy and compassion, some Lasallian co-workers will be having an activity in Lipa City Jail in the morning and at the charity ward of the Lipa City District Hospital in the afternoon.

Lastly, we encourage our Lasallian Partners to be in yellow or white shirt on Friday except the college students who will be having their mid-term examination on this day. We will also give a simple souvenir/card to remind us of the Pope's visit to our country.

Thank you very much.

Mabuhay ang Santo Papa!

Green Chevrons Rule LSMS Volleyball
This year's League of Southern Manila School (LSMS) 2014 may be the best season for De La Salle Lipa, specifically, in the volleyball tournament.

At the championship competition on October 4, 2014, held at Brent International School, Mamplasan, Bian, Laguna, the host school, the Green Chevrons mustered all their courage and strength to either defend their respective title or prove their worth to be crowned as the seasons champions.

De La Salle Lipa's Volleyball Girls in the 14 Under category successfully secured their title over Manila Hope Christian School, as this winning teams Co-Capt. Alleiah Jan Malaluan was once again named the Most Valuable Player and at the same time one of the Mythical Six along with teammate Tanya Francesca Narciso.



The Volleyball Boys in the same category replicated the girls feat as they managed to grab the championship title over Bubukal Elementary School, while team member Vince Gerard Maglinao was this season's Most Valuable Player and one of the Mythical Six along with teammate Jonathan De Castro.



The High School Boys Division I team reclaimed the championship title they lost last year to National University and overcame Canossa Academy Lipa, while Team Capt. Lawrence Gil Magadia was the Most Valuable Player and one of the Mythical Six along with teammate Angelo Ricardo Enginco.



Never far behind is the High School Girls Division I team who clinched the second place after a tough competition with this seasons champion Manila Hope Christian School, while Team Capt. Jennelle Marie Lo and teammate Janel Maraguinot, nonetheless, were both selected in the Mythical Six.



Volleyball is only one of the events that has already concluded in this particular league and more events championships will follow, so continue to route for the Green Chevrons.

All about Campus Talk 2.0
Taking the parents' assembly to another level, the Grades 9 and 10 students convened with Grade 10 parents on September 30, 2014 at the SENTRUM to engage in an interactive presentation regarding their future plans and career orientation.

Integrated School Principal Mayolisa Mantuano personally welcomed the attendees and explained briefly the objective of the afternoon gathering. She highlighted the ensuing discussion on Senior High School (SHS) program of De La Salle Lipa and the institution's "fearless" offering way ahead of other educational institutions.

The events guest speaker was from this country's number one job site. He is the Senior Marketing Specialist of JobStreet, Kelvin Villafuerte. His engaging presentation provided a clear scenario of the employment status in the country and gave a hearty discussion on how the current generation should discern the right and appropriate program for them. Villafuerte underscored the significance of gaining advantage in competency and how the young Lasallians could be competitive enough in acquiring their desired career.

DLSL's SHS Coordinator Rene Villanueva gave an extensive discussion on the SHS program of DLSL. He cited the most recent development in the newest offering and how it may further evolve to a favorable program considering the future changes in the Asian region.

Corroborating the recommendations of both preceding speakers, BS Accountancy student Verthon Acielo gave a testimonial on the importance of acquiring a SHS program based on his experience when he applied for a university in the USA, and the implications of ignoring the opportunity to take advantage of it.

CHED upholds the students' dreams
The Philippine government upholds its belief that youths are the agents for nation-building. One of the thousand ways to realize that idea is through access on education. However, it is a fact that not all students achieved their dream to have a bachelor degree because of financial instability.

With the said idea, the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), one of the education sectors in the country, is part of maintaining, monitoring and molding the quality education that the country is aiming. Part of achieving the mission-vision of CHED is through funding scholarship assistance to deserving college students who are financially handicapped.

The De La Salle Lipa-Tertiary Level is one of the accredited CHED institutions which receives the said financial assistance every semester for the qualified grantees. As of June 24, 2014, there are 56 beneficiaries from DLSL who enjoy a financial assistance ranging from PhP 6,000.00 to PhP 15,000.00 per scholar. In particular, CHED scholars who are in the 'Tulong-Dunong' category, receive PhP 6,000.00, half-merit scholars receive PhP 7,500.00, and full-merit scholars receive Php 15,000.00.

It was on July 1, 2014 when CHED-IV-A handed Jhing Mias and Enalyn Castillo of the LAMP Office, the list of newly accepted DLSL-CHED grantees for SY 2014-2015. There are six Full Merit grantees, five 'Tulong Dunong,' 103 'Congressional Tulong Dunong' and eight PESFA grantees.

At present DLSL, through the LAMP Office, is managing 178 CHED grantees.





DLSL's Recent TESDA Cookery NC II Passers
The College of International Hospitality and Tourism Management (CIHTM) celebrated another feather in their cap.

After taking the Technical Education and Skills Authority Development's (TESDA) Cookery National Certification Level II on June 20, 2014 at the CIHTM kitchen laboratory, students of the Lipa Institute of Culinary Arts and the Hotel and Restaurant Management, including an alumna, successfully passed the test.

The DLSL community congratulates the following: LICA students Cielo Aninao, Gilfred Ilagan, Jabin Abner Jumarang, and Alynn Maldonado; HRM students Eunice Lumbera, Ma. Ellora Pascua, Denler Receno, and alumna Olga Parallon.

TESDA certification is an essential qualification since its assessment gauges the competence of an individual. The official website of TESDA states that "A National Certificate (NC) is issued when a candidate has demonstrated competence in all units of competency that comprised a Qualification."

Interested and qualified candidates from the institution and nearby schools may conveniently take this assessment on campus after DLSLs accreditation by TESDA as an Assessment Center for Cookery National Certification Level II.

Organized Joy Day: DLSL's Sports, Recreation
The whole day of May 16, 2014 was spent on sports and recreation under the sun all in the name of fun and camaraderie. This proved to be another memorable occasion for the institution for gathering more than 600 employees to either experience one again or participate for the first time in the reinstated institutional program of De La Salle Lipa - Organized Joy Day - fondly themed "In Fraternity There Is Unity; Fun Lasalyano!"

Participants were divided into ten groups according to the following colors: Light Green, Lilac, Light Blue, Brown, Yellow, Dark Green, Orange, Dark Blue, Gray, and Pink; and picked their preferred game as follows: obstacle relay, tug-of-war, dodge ball, volleyball, swimming, and the cheering competition where all members of each group sang their hearts out and shouted for joy at Dalampasigan Beach Resort.

DLSL President and Chancellor Br. Joaquin Martinez FSC, D. Min. took the opportunity to have fun as well under the sun and joined the employees in this rare event. He likewise commended the organizers for the not-so-easy task of handling such a big event off campus. A day after the service awardees received their plaques of appreciation, the Brother President thought that it was never too late to recognize one of the members of the Brothers' Community, Br. Ruben Caluyong FSC, who had been with DLSL for 15 years and was about to leave for a new assignment in another community.
