Batch ’80 Handed Generous Donation

THE “UNBEATABLE 80” ON THE LEAD

The Alumni Class – Batch ’80 that proudly call themselves the “Unbeatable” truly stood their ground being the top class now with the most number of members in our DWCU Worldwide Family Network THE DIVINIAN. The class “core team” based in Urdaneta and the surrounding towns is now busy every weekend going around visiting their classmates and batchmates for their forthcoming PEARL REUNION scheduled on January 8, 2011.

Last Saturday, August 21 right after their class visitation they dropped by the Campus of their Alma Mater where they met Fr. President who brought them to the construction site of the Home Economics Extension Building of the Grade School Department. This present construction is a project of the Parents-Teachers’ Association under the leadership of Prosecutor Silvestre Redemptor A. Ridao as required by the DepEd for government recognition. The project is still wanting of funds to continue and finish the project. The PTA is still raising funds to finance the on-going construction, the “core team” of batch 80 inspected the project and decided to give their financial support.

It was then during the dinner (sponsored by Roel of Hawaii) at Matutina’s that Fiscal Wilma Dulay handed over  to Fr. President their generous donation witnessed by the core team: Josephine Dulay Manalili, Mario de Vera Espinoza, Sr., Emma Tuvera, Brenda Subido Dacpano, Cathy de Guzman, Homer Nidoy and Tomas Narnola. In behalf of the PTA, the administration, faculty, personnel and students of the DWCU we express to the whole batch 80 – THE UNBEATABLE … our heartfelt gratitude. May your tribe increase.

THE HANDING OVER AND THE DINNER AT MATUTINA'S

On the other hand, we express our heartfelt gratitude to all our generous donors and benefactors for the completion of the PTA project for this year. We thank those who donated bags of cement, truckloads of sand and gravel, building materials and cash donations. The PTA and the Administration are still soliciting your financial support to finish the project. We are praying and hoping that other Batches of the Alumni of the DWCU will also help us until the completion of the said project. We anticipate your affirmative response to this plea.

The DWCU Joyfully Welcomes

the Birth of JPICC

The spirit of the 3rd Campus Pastoral Assembly of the DWCU that brought to fruition the 5-year Pastoral Plan of the institution continues to inspire the students and the faculty to implement the resolutions of the assembly. The Committee on Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation recently called for an assembly that brought to nativity the JPICC  the brain child of Mr. Reynald Mamasig. The founder of the club then writes:

Justice, Peace, Integrity of Creation Club (JPICC) is the youngest club of Divine Word College of Urdaneta, High School Department. It is founded to respond to the challenge of promoting and protecting God’s creation based on Arnoldus spirituality. During the assembly last August 5, 2010 the members made a commitment to uphold the four core values of Divine Word Education Association (DWEA) such as integrity, social responsibility, excellence, evangelization, by carrying out environment-related and social welfare-enhancing activities such as tree planting, adoption of Barangay, forum on climate change and youth-oriented issues, seminar-workshop on waste segregation, putting -up a mini-creation spirituality park, and site visitation/nature trip. In order to flesh-out these activities, the members were organized into three committees – Internal, External and Finance.

THE DWCU’s NUTRITION MONTH CELEBRATION 2010

“Sa Pagkaing Tama at Sapat,

Wastong Timbang ni Baby ang Katapat”

This year’s theme of  the Nutrition Month focuses on the importance of complementary feeding as a strategy to prevent under nutrition especially among the children.

Every year the Divine Word College of Urdaneta celebrates Nutrition Month as mandated by section 7 of Presidential Decree No. 491 (Nutrition Act of the Philippines, 25 June 1974).  The Department of Education likewise issued the memorandum 301 series of 2010 with this directive: ” Considering the importance of the celebration, all DepEd central, regional and division offices are enjoined to undertake activities that should highlight the importance of breastfeeding and complementary feeding. Studies have shown that the levels of malnutrition climb to three (3) to four (4) times among infants before they turn one (1) year old and stay up until the children are of school age. Malnutrition especially during the first two years of life is not acceptable because this results to irreversible damage to children. Not only is their health compromised but also their productivity when they reach adulthood, which eventually impacts on the economic growth of the country.”

The observance of this year’s nutrition month at the Divine Word College of Urdaneta commenced during the celebration of the Word and the Eucharist last July 2  on the occasion of the First Friday Mass. Since then every day of the week the whole academic community witnessed different activities and events related to the theme and the objectives of the Department of Education and the Commission on Higher Education as well.

Last July 30 the celebration reached its culmination with simultaneous programs:  1) the Pre-Elementary and Elementary Department at the St. Arnoldus Hall of the Divine Word Formation Center, 2) the High School being the biggest department used the St. Michael’s Gymnasium as their venue while 3) the College Department occupied the whole third floor of the St. Augustine Building. The culmination started at 8:00 o’clock in the morning capped by common lunch by departments. A kaleidoscope of activities, presentations, programs is presented in pictures below:
