The end of AY 2018-2019 is the culmination of years of hard work; the actualization of goals attained and the acknowledgement of successes achieved.
This past academic year has been a journey that started with dauntlessly calculated steps which have taken us to remarkable heights. We have encountered some trials and tribulations along the way...soldiered on and came out stronger. We have experienced exceptional moments, magical moments and created memories that will be fondly remembered in the years to come.
We witnessed our elementary students became active in their community service advocacies through the SAC’s Bigay Puso sa Pasko. Our Graceans from Preschool, Lower Grade School, Upper Grade School, Junior High school and Senior High school who competed in different fields (academics, sports and the arts) shone brightest, landing in the top ranks and winning awards. We have sent our representatives in the Spelling Bee Contest, Poem Recitation Contests, Press Conferences, Dance Contests, and many others. Our athletes soared high when they brought home the bacon in their stints. And best of all our journalists brought us to the highest level of the competition when Joseph Salin qualified for the national level in the Pagsulat ng Balitang Isports category and he represented the National Capital Region in the NSSPC held in Pangasinan last March 2019.
It is true that yearly, we come to best our previous best. Our Grade 12 students qualified for many prestigious colleges and universities where they took entrance examinations such as UP, PUP, UST, UCC, FEU, and other renowned colleges and universities.
Most remarkably, last February, we have surpassed with positive results the Re-Certification process by FAPE-PEAC. All stakeholders – students, teachers, staff, administrators, the parents and the members of the board meticulously took part in this endeavor.
Henry Ford wisely said, "Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress and working together is success." As we look back over the past year, certainly we have started well, and thankfully we progressed satisfactorily and yes - undeniably we have been successful!
May the years ahead for Divine Grace School continue to be characterized by its dauntless progressive growth to evolve into an entity which sincerely serves the community and produces a winner in every student.
Long live Batch 2019, long live Divine Grace School!
