Alumni Homecoming 2019

Savouring a brighter future through our glorious past.

They say that “Home is where the heart is”.

Your coming back to our Alma Mater today means your hearts are still with Aldersgate College. For that, I am thankful. So, Welcome home! Welcome to your Alma Mater!

To those of you who have been away for some time, I am happy to inform you that during the time that you were away, your Alma Mater is in the good hands of our untiring and hardworking administrators, faculty and staff. We made sure that the quality of our instruction and our services continue to improve.

We try our best to prepare our graduates to excel in their respective professions and that our PRC passing rate will continue to level up.

I wish to inform everyone that we had a re-clustering of our courses, resulting to a new nomenclature of some of our colleges, specifically, the CET is  now the College  of Enguneering, Informatics and Technology (CEIT) under the deanship of Engr. Godofredo M. Batarao; the SBA (which used to be the  CBE, then CBIT) is now the School of Business, Management and Accountancy (SBMA) under Dr. Romeo M. Bicad as the dean. We still have the College of Arts, Sciences and Education (CASE) with Debora B. Sampaga as Dean; the School of Criminology (SC) under the leadership of Dean Jose B . Omingle; the School of Medical Sciences (SMS)  under Marivic D. Dela Torre as Dean; the Graduate School of Education (GSE) with Deb Sampaga as Dean and the Graduate School of Management (GSM) which is also under Dr. Romulo Bicad.  Of course our Elementary School and the AC High School  under Mrs. Cely Luna and Marissa Taguinod as the respective Principals. 

I wish to underscore that the High School was recently awarded a 5-year Level 2 Accreditation and we are gearing up for Level 3. Early this month, our Level 2 accredited programs, Education, Liberal Arts, Nursing and Business were visited for resurvey and we are praying to be awarded Level 3 accredited status. A preliminary survey of the Elementary School, the Tourism and Hospitality and Criminology programs was also undertaken.

This school year, we are are blessed with an increase in enrolment in all levels. This can be partly attributed to the Voucher and ESC funds for the high school and the TES program from the government.  

As a result of this, we have constructed 4 classrooms for the high school in the EZE building and 4 classrooms for the College in the CSS building. With God’s grace, we aim to finish the second floor of the CSS building which means additional 10 classrooms. I know we have limited funds for this, but with your prayers and financial contribution, no matter how small, we can finish this project in the ensuing school year.

As you can see, we have started painting the EZE building and we also wish to do the same with the ICDC building.

Our classrooms are mostly provided with LED screens to facilitate instruction. You may have also noticed that we have installed turnstiles at the entrance and only students with valid IDs can enter, while simultaneously, a text message is sent to the parents of their child’s entry and exit. For the faculty and staff, we use biometrics for entrance and exit.

 We have also  expanded our canteen to be able to cater to the growing number of students.

Our pupils and students continue to excel in competitions in the   district, provincial and regional levels.  As you did while you were students here, these experiences are avenues where their skills are honed to prepare them for greater responsibilities like you now have. We are proud that many of you, our dear alumni are now raising the torch high for Aldersgate College wherever you are. I wish to  take this opportunity to thank you all for your presence. Indeed it is a manifestation that you recognise Aldersgate College as a part of your glorious past.  Graduation from the academe doesn’t sever your relationship with it.

Like our parents who nourished us, we leave our Alma Mater, only to come back and give back to her whatever we can give back as a manifestation of our gratitude.

Today we are here, not only to meet old friends and teachers but also to dream together with us for an Aldersgate College that we can all be proud of. Be our partners in looking forward to a better future. We need your commitment. We need your help. We need your prayers.
