Message from the President

Dear Students, Parents and Guardians,


As you may already know by now, Malacañang has suspended work in all government offices as well as classes in all public schools tomorrow, September 21, 2017.

We at Ateneo de Iloilo - Santa Maria Catholic School shall continue with our classes tomorrow as usual.  We shall also use this day as an opportunity to continue to remember and learn the atrocities of Martial Law perpetuated by the Marcos Regime so that we may know how to prevent them from happening again.  The Social Studies Programs of our GS, JHS and SHS units have prepared various fora for this purpose. I encourage everyone to join and participate in these activities.  

As a Jesuit and Catholic School, let us use this day as an opportunity in exercising our sacred duty and mission to form our students to uphold justice as an integral dimension  and concrete expression of our Christian faith. 

In omnibus amare et servire,


Fr. Joseph Y. Haw, S.J.

This partly-subsidized event is initiated by Ateneo de Iloilo-SMCS High School through its president Fr. Joseph Y. Haw, SJ, himself a former Filipino teacher. It is in line with the celebration of the Buwan ng Wika with the theme: “Filipino: Wika ng Pagkakaisa”.

The “Matalinong Panonood ng Pelikula” seminar-workshop aims to respond to the need of teachers to familiarize themselves with “critical film viewing”—the latest basic skill required in the K-12 curriculum; equip teachers with experiences and approaches necessary to enhance the probing and critical thinking skills of the students through viewing independent (indie) films; and improve the capacity of teachers in relating social issues to students’ lives through movie reviews.
