First Commencement Exercises of St. Edward Integrated School in Cavite

Cavite Housing - Lancaster New City - Township

St. Edward Integrated School (SEIS) held its first commencement exercises for Grade 6 pupils.
The graduation rites started with a Holy Mass Celebration. The program began with the entrance of colors, doxology and singing of the national anthem. Sister Teresita C. Octavio, SEIS Principal gave the welcome remarks.
An inspirational message was given by the Chairman of SEIS Board of Trustees, Guillermo C. Choa. In his talk, Choa asked who among the graduates wants to be successful. “You already know the secrets, the secret is hardwork, the secret is don’t spend your money wastefully, you also have to practice what you do and study very hard,” said Choa.

He also stressed how spending too much time on gadgets nowadays affects success, “For you to be successful, you have to do a lot of thinking. This thing does not make you think, it makes you busy but it doesn’t make you think.” Choa ended with an advice to parents, “Parents, the time with your children is more important, the time with your spouse is more important, the time with our Lord, that is most important.”

Choa’s inspirational message was followed by a Lasallian message delivered by Michael Cua FSC. “Graduates, I believe SEIS has taught you well. You are now equipped with knowledge and skills to help you achieve and become successful on your next stage of studies. Use your God-given gifts and talents to uplift not just your life, but also the lives of others, especially the poor and needy,” said Cua.

After the messages, the awarding of fourth quarter honors certificate immediately followed then the giving of awards, presentation of graduates, and distribution of diplomas.

Forty-two Grade 6 pupils graduated, the valedictorian of Batch 2014 is Leah Neleen J. Camama while the salutatorian is Andre’ Austin D. Borja. The event ended with the singing of the Edwardian Hymn.
After the commencement exercises, SEIS held the second moving-up ceremony for Kinder 2 pupils. 107 Kinder 2 pupils were part of the ceremony.

SEIS was established in 2011. It is a Catholic learning institution that transforms lives by nurturing the minds of the young to realize their dreams and potential to become persons imbued with Christian values in the service of the society. SEIS is supported by Property Company of Friends, Inc. (PRO-FRIENDS). The school is located inside Lancaster New City, the 1,000-hectare flagship project of PRO-FRIENDS.

Property Company of Friends, Inc. (PRO-FRIENDS) village administrators led the homeowners in this activity involving the different representatives from the 6 phases of the development. Medium-sized Molave trees were planted in designated areas of Lancaster Village 2 West. Ruiz Fuentebella, landscape maintenance section head of PRO-FRIENDS, explained why they chose to plant this particular tree. “These medium-sized Molave trees, which also also produce flowers, will give good shade and at the same time will not be a threat to the constructed amenities around since its roots are not invasive,” said Fuentebella.

The tree planting project dubbed as “Friends of Earth” was participated by representatives from phases Somerset, Manchester, Kensington, Lancaster Residences, Lancaster Village Phases 1 & 2, and some PRO-FRIENDS employees.

In his welcome address, PDG head Engr. Nathaniel Dalmacio expressed his gratitude to everyone who participated in the event. “Sa pagdating ng panahon, makikita natin yung magiging bunga ng itinanim natin,” said Engr. Dalmacio.

For the homeowners, the experience was delightful and fulfilling. “Sumama kami, narito kami, para rin sa amin ito eh. Masaya kami rito dahil first time din naming na-meet (yung ibang homeowners sa ibang phase), kaya salamat at nagkaroon ng ganitong proyekto,” said Mirela Grepo, Lancaster Village homeowner.

The tree planting activity is the first inter-phase activity of Lancaster New City. Nida Detablan, Community Relations and Development Head of Lancaster New City stated, “This was organized to symbolize unity and to promote camaraderie among the homeowners regardless of which phase they reside”.

This activity marks the beginning of more upcoming programs that will involve homeowners’ participation from different phases. This endeavour is led by PRO-FRIENDS village administrators to further promote solidarity among Lancaster New City residents and future homeowners as well.
