DWCU Opened its First Day of School!
Divine Word College of Urdaneta marked its School Year 2016-2017 opening last June 13, 2016 with its very first Senior High School students. Rev. Fr. Gil T. Manalo, SVD DWCU’s School President had his welcome message welcoming back the old students from Pre-Elementary, Elementary, High School, and College students and also received the new students who came from different schools.
It was the day where the students looked forward to seeing their friends again after a two long months of vacation, not to mention the first timers in Senior High School who are currently enrolled as grade 11 under the Three Strands STEM (Science and Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) HUMSS (Humanities, Social Service) ABM (Accountancy, Business, Management) the school offered.
DWCU’s Administrators, Faculty and Staffs were all joined force in welcoming the students as everyone proceeded at the St. Michael’s Gymnasium for the meet and greet.
Fr. Gil proudly said that the school has its new laboratory buildings (Biology and Physics) alongside with the old Chemistry and Speech Laboratories. The classrooms were newly painted by the class advisers; the College Department has its new ceiling fans. But aside from his announcement, he was enthusiast to tell everyone that this year DWCU will be celebrating its 50th Golden Anniversary tagging as one of the most memorable and a great highlight in DWCU’s history. In return everyone applauded and were all looking forward on this grandiose event which will happen on February 2017.
After the short welcome program, everyone went to their respective classrooms for the Homeroom Orientation. The next event that everyone will be expecting is the anticipated First Friday Mass on June 24 which will happen at St. Michael’s Gymnasium.
