Discovering Hidden Treasures in Ordinary Lives

In celebration of the World Day of the Poor, the Paulinian community initiated a whole-day activity that was simultaneously held at the HS Atrium and New Gymnasium.

With the theme, “Day of the Poor: Discovering Hidden Treasures in Ordinary Lives,” the program started with several animation songs led by select CMVASS and YFC members. It was then followed by a Welcome message by Rev. Fr. Larry Espuerta, DCS. The Dialogue of Life of the SHS and College students together with the invited guests was conducted in their respective classrooms and assigned areas. Through the Paulinian Agape, the Paulinian community also prepared a sumptuous lunch for their respective guests.

To culminate the event, a Eucharistic Celebration was offered at the New Gymnasium with the SHS unit and College department in attendance. The said activity was sponsored by the Christian Formation Office spearheaded by Sr. Maria Teresa Mallillin, SPC.

The Paulinian community as Tüv Rheinland issued a new certificate

St. Paul University Surigao has proven its mark as a leading provider of quality education and service to the Paulinian community as Tüv Rheinland issued a new certificate after a 2-day ISO audit in both campuses on October 29-30, 2018.

This year’s audit team is composed of Ms. Jean Laguitao (JL), the lead auditor, Engr. Mary Grace Balobalo (GB) and Ms. Jogina Mendiola (JM).

After series of class observations and interviews, the general result or finding was very commendable as SPUS, for the first time in history, incurred zero NCs (non-conformity) during the audit.

Congratulations! ⚜️
