SSJB 14th Foundation Day: A Blessing!

To kick off the SSJB’s Foundation Day celebration, a Holy Mass was held in the School’s mini-chapel on January 28, 2015 at exactly 8:00 A.M. with Rev. Fr. Paul Ines, a Salesian priest, as the mass celebrant. The mass was participated by the students from the Pre- Elementary to High School, Faculty and Staff as well as the parents. Worth appreciating was the presence of the Divine Mercy Choir of St. John the Baptist Parish, Liliw, Laguna during the liturgical mass under the leadership of Mrs. Nancy N. Arevalo.foundationdayquadA

One of the highlights of the celebration was the “Search for Mr. and Ms. Bosconian 2015”. Apart from fun and merriment, the primary  objective was to raise funds for the improvement of the School’s mini-chapel particulalry its flooring, chairs, projector and other requirements.foundationdayemceesE

The search was very exciting not only because of the fund raising  campaign competition but also  the efforts of the contestants who tried to show their “best” for the different categories to be awarded to the winners. The following were the winners for the various categories:

MS. BOSCONIAN ’2015
