Fr. Roberto J. Ibay, SVD, the DWCU President stated on his message for the Nutrition Month that in order for us to practice or live the 2017 Nutrition Month’s theme “Healthy Diet, Gawing Habit for Life”, we need to BELIEVE, SUCCEED and ACHIEVE! Believe that health is wealth, believe that our wealth is having a sound body and a sound mind. Succeed is to commit ourselves with passion to be always in good shape, eating and promoting healthy food here in our school and in our families; and to ACHIEVE our theme is to work together as a family and as an educational community to have a healthy diet. He further stated that “when you believe you succeed, when you succeed you achieve!”

The theme “Healthy Diet, Gawing Habit for Life” were expressed through different competitions – Fruit Carving, Cooking, Nutrijingle and Zumba. Certificates of Appreciation and Recognition were awarded to the winners of the said contests. Mrs. Marlyn Laroco, the High School Principal gave the closing remarks and a prayer and blessings was given by Fr. Ibay to end the celebration.
