UASHS Students Gather for First Sports Fest

University of the Assumption Senior High School (UASHS) gathered to celebrate and compete in different athletic events and sports during their first sports festival held on October 12-14, 2016.

Organized by the UASHS Supreme Student Council, the theme of the event was “ISANLAKAS: Building Camaraderie and Fostering Unity with Fires in Our Hearts”.


UASHS students from different strands formed the four (4) competing teams identified as Red Oxen, White Eagles, Blue Angels, and Yellow Lions as they tried besting each other in team sports and individual games. UASHS also held an aerobic exercise session participated by the faculty members and students.


Dr. Violy Santos, UASHS principal, explained that the whole activity is helpful for students to alleviate their stresses from academics which is vital to their growth. “I could see that they enjoyed (the sports fest), and I think they needed it,” she added.

Santos also commended the UASHS Supreme Student Council for a job well-done in organizing the sports festival. “Their sense of responsibility is there…What we have now is not something perfect but what they have accomplished so far, exceeded our expectation,” she said.

In the end, the Red Oxen emerged as the Overall Champion. The Yellow Lions and White Eagles bagged the first and second runner-up awards respectively, while the Blue Angels were declared as the third runner-up.

UASHS Remembers a Kapampangan Hero

The Grade 11 St. Joseph Benedict Cottolengo class paid tribute to Tiburcio Hilario in celebration of the hero’s 163rd birth anniversary through an exhibition of his significant achievements and important events in his life.

It was spearheaded by political science students under Mr. Cris Balingit who are enrolled in Humanities and Social Science (HUMSS) and General Academic (GA) strands in the UA Senior High School.

Tiburcio Hilario was born on August 11, 1853 in San Juan, San Fernando, Pampanga. He was imprisoned by the Spaniards and exiled in Siasi, Jolo because of his association with Dr. Jose Rizal.

He was elected military governor of Pampanga by the town presidents “at a time when Filipinos were hardly given the opportunity to have a voice in the government”. He stood out as the brain of the revolutionary movement in Pampanga. “He implanted the seeds of liberalism in Pampanga preserving, even in times of war, the human rights of the Filipino people.“ He is also known in history as the one who delivered the “emprestitos” or war loan amounting to one million silver pesos to General Antonio Luna to convince the Americans that the Filipinos are determined to achieve their independence.

In 1903, he became very ill due to scarlet fever and died on February 18, 1903. His funeral was a fitting tribute to a man whose life was spent to service during the most trying times in Philippine history. The people who brought his remains to its final resting place were composed of the most privileged in Pampanga and the poor, but mostly of the latter, whom he had helped while serving the country.

The exhibit hoped to imbibe in the students of senior high school the value of love of country and dedicated concern for the common masses, also known today as those in the periphery.

#ResearchGoals for UASHS

University of the Assumption Senior High School (UASHS) curriculum is geared towards the holistic development of students through its diversified and integrative subjects.

One of these is Practical Research 1 which is a course in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) strand. It aims to develop higher-order thinking skills which include critical thinking, reasoning and communication.

For the first quarter of the current semester, grade 11 students under STEM learned the basics of research: its nature, kinds and process. For their culminating activity for the first quarter of the current school year, students defended their thesis title before a panel of research specialists including the principal Dr. Violy Santos.

The students are being assisted by their teachers who are research specialists namely Mr. Jomari Pangilinan; Ma. Victoria D. Cunanan, R.Ph., MAED; and Ms. Menchu Lozano, DMD, MACD, PhD.

Grade 11 Students Celebrate Feast of St. Camillus de Lellis

Grade 11 students enrolled under the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) track celebrate the feast of St. Camillus de Lellis on July 14.

St. Camillus de Lellis is the patron saint of the sick, nurses and nursing groups. He founded the Ministers of the Infirm, popularly known as the Camellians, whose members are dedicated to the care of the sick. He died on July 14, 1614. He was beatified in 1742 and canonized in 1746.


Naming one section of the STEM classes under the patronage St. Camillus de Lellis is in accordance with Catholic tradition of invoking the intercession of the holy men and women.

The celebration aimed at promoting the devotion to the saint especially among the students who intend to pursue a degree in nursing and medicine or any of the allied medical programs. It was also designed to give the students to have a break from the challenging STEM curriculum and promote the five (5) Cs of education in the 21st century – creativity, collaboration, communication, critical thinking and cooperation – outside the confines of the classroom.

The class had a nine (9) day novena in preparation for the feast of St. Camillus. On his feast day, a Holy Mass was held at the University Chapel with Fr. Israel Garcia as main celebrant. The festivity was capped with a shared lunch, boodle fight style, at the senior high school dining area.
