The school welcomed the month of December with the traditional Lighting of the Advent Star and the staging of the 90th anniversary concert titled, “Knoll to Now”. The events were held last Dec. 2 at the Marian Auditorium with the MC community composed of the Maryknoll Sisters, administrators, faculty, students, community partners, MCare members, parents, parent officers filling the auditorium.
The night opened with the Lighting organized by the Miriam Adult Education. MAE faculty volunteer Sunny Cortez led the para liturgy with numbers by MAE students in between. Highlighting the activity were the lighting of the Advent star and the 90 stars that surrounded the Belen at the Lady Shepherdess grounds. Representing President Rosario O. Lapus was Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Maria Lourdes Q. Baybay for the symbolic turning of lights to mark the start of advent.
The Lighting was immediately followed by an overture from the Shirley Halili Ballet Group to open the concert that celebrates Maryknoll/Miriam College through the decades. The legacy of the Maryknoll Sisters and each lay president who came after them were remembered through a narration and an AVP. In between, song and dance numbers from the 1920s to the 2010s were showcased by the school’s homegrown talents and special guests. Well-loved Christmas music filled the stage with each performer giving life to them through song, dance, and classic renditions on the violin, guitar, and piano.
The MCHS Glee Club back to back with CCDC put the audience in the mood for Christmas with the songs Deck the Rooftop and Carol of the Bells; the trio of Loida Campos, Cynthia Guico and Ella Baarde entertained with the 1940s hit Chatanooga Choo Choo; while Iqui Vinculado and Jenny De Vera, Music Center faculty and members of the award-winning Triple Fret, stirred nostalgia with their number When You Wish Upon A Star. World-renowned violinist John Lesaca brought the house down with the Beatles’ Help on electric guitar and a delightful Christmas Medley on violin.
HEU Pep Squad brought the 70s back with hits like Dancing Queen
and Hot Stuff
; MS Chorus and MC-SAID touched the audience with For the Beauty of the Earth
and Munting Sanggo
l; while MC alumna Camille Abadicio inspired with the songs Hero
and I Believe I Can Fly
. Not to be outdone were the mighty CSC kids who rocked the house with their ‘Dynamite’ dance. Keeping the mood Christmasy all throughout were our very own Sayawatha, MC Aria, and MC Choral.
Towards the end, Sister Marisa, who represented the Maryknoll Sisters, delivered a message of hope to which Grade 2 student Kirsten Dioko responded. Kristine Lesaca, Lower School APSA, thanked the founders and leaders who have brought Miriam to where it is today.
The show closed with a finale song titled I Have Called You
, You Are Mine
composed by Alejandro Consolacion II and Noemi Binag. Under the baton the Middle School’s Jhames Labrador, all performers together with representatives from each unit sang the song dedicated to the Maryknoll Sisters and lay leaders who guided the school from Knoll to Now.
Indeed it was a memorable and joyous night of light and music thanks to the supportive unit heads, performers and their respective moderators, the Knoll to Now technical team, AOs of the different units, and maintenance personnel who all worked on and back stage under the overall direction of Boyette Fernandez, LS Administrative Officer, and musical direction of Jhames Labrador, MS Music Subject Area Supervisor.

Miriam College, through the Miriam Identity, Spirituality and Mission Office (MISMO) and in collaboration with the BEU and HEU’s campus ministry offices, paid tribute to the Maryknoll Sisters in the Philippines and celebrated the Golden Jubilee of Sr. Teresa Dagdag and Sr. Aida Manlucu.
Held last October 7 as part of the school’s 90th anniversary celebrations, the event opened with a Mass presided by Fr. James Kroeger, MM who shared the challenging journey of the Maryknoll Sisters so they may be able to plant the seeds of their mission here in the Philippines. Student representatives from the different units took part in the celebration of the Mass to honor the Maryknoll Sisters who were present, namely, Sr. Virginia Fabella, Sr. Helen Graham, Sr. Nenita Tapia, Sr. Marvelous Misolas, Sr. Imelda Bautista, Sr. Nora Maulawin, Sr. Marisa Lichauco, Sr. Lourdes Fernandez, Sr. Genie Natividad, and Jubilarians Sr. Teresa Dagdag, and Sr. Aida Manlucu.
The Mass was capped with a message from Sr. Dagdag who likened the Maryknoll Sisters’ “crossing” to that of the crossing of Mother Mary to her cousin Elizabeth. “Crossing over and leaving one’s comfort zone is part of Mary’s life and so is ours,” she said, adding, “crossing over is how we connect with Christ.”
After the Mass, a program was held at the Miriam College-Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center (MC-HSSIC). Gracing the event were former Miriam College presidents Dr. Loreta Castro and Dr. Patricia Licuanan; former vice presidents Dr. Glenda Fortez, Dr. Angelina Galang, and Rose Bautista; and current Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Maria Lourdes Baybay.
In her message read by Dr. Castro, Dr. Rosario Lapus said that the school is happy to be hosting the tribute “for our noble Sisters who constantly light lamps of kindness, love and compassion that ultimately teach our students to make God’s love visible.”
She also wished for Sr. Dagdag and Sr. Manlucu, “to continue to be sources of inspiration and strength to other Maryknoll sisters and to the entire Miriam community.”
On behalf of the Maryknoll Sisters, Sr. Graham thanked the Miriam College community for the tribute and congratulated the school on its 90th year. She gave credit to the trailblazing Maryknoll founders for their contribution to the school. “We say thank you, first of all, to these pioneering women who blazed the trail for so many more to come over the ninety years since their arrival.” She added that Sr. Dagdag and Sr. Manlucu are two of the many “fruits” of the Maryknoll Sisters’ mission presence in the Philippines.
In between heartfelt messages, the school’s homegrown talents serenaded the Sisters and guests. Among the performers were the Miriam College Middle School Chorus, MC High School Glee Club, MC Aria of the HEU, Cynthia Guico of the Music Center, and Mirma Tica of the Center for Peace Education. A highlight of the night was a piano number from Sr. Nenita Tapia who gamely played the song “If” by Bread.
The night ended with messages of gratitude from Sr. Dagdag and Sr. Manlucu. This was made special by the offering of red long-stemmed roses by members of the community to the Maryknoll Sisters present at this meaningful event.
Contributing to the success of the tribute were Dr. Gail Galang who was the program emcee; Boyette Fernandez, Lower School Administrative Officer who took care of the physical arrangement; and the Department of Leisure and Tourism for providing the students to help welcome the special guests at the chapel and at the MC-HSSIC.

Upang mas mapalawak ang kaalaman ng mga mag-aaral sa modernong teknolohiya, nagbukas ang Miriam College ng isang Innovation Center kung saan bukas ito sa mga estudyante mula elementarya hanggang kolehiyo na may iba’t ibang pasilidad upang mahasa ang kanilang mga kaalaman.
As part of Miriam College’s 90th anniversary celebration, an ‘underground’ activity known as “Project 9.0” was organized by the Office of the President involving two teams from the High School and from the College. The latter was represented by BA Communication students Paola Neyra, Claire Uy, Elaine Nasi, and Patricia Ortile.
The project proposals were presented to and judged by Miriam College President Dr. Rosario Lapus, Director for Innovation Development and High School Principal Dr. Edizon A. Fermin, Marketing and Communications Head Romualdo A. Romualdo, Communications and Media Coordinator Dahl Bennett, and Special Project Coordinator Mian Arcega last August 12, 2016 at the Board Room.
Both teams were tasked to come up with a high-impact, low-cost, and feasible project. After careful deliberation, two ideas were picked from the HEU that included a Post-It installation wherein students wrote short messages to the future MC community. These messages were posted on tarpaulins located in the Lower School, Middle School, High School, College, Miriam Adult Education, and Southeast Asian Institute for the Deaf. The Post-Its were later gathered in a jar to be opened after a couple of years for reflection.
The other idea highlights the four core values of Miriam College – truth, justice, peace, and integrity of creation —and will be reflected in feel-good statements incorporated in tricycle stickers which will be distributed at the end of this year.

Entries coming from 26 contributors were trimmed down to 90 photos. Judging these entries were Villano, Lai De Guzman, owner of Time Travelers Photography; Dr. Noel Racho, Human Resource Division director; Luwi Tampinco, BEU director and Middle School principal; and Rob Fontanilla, faculty member of the Department of Communication. Dr. Rosario Lapus, Miriam College president, selected the top 3 photos.
The first, second, and third prize winners are Claudine F. Esteban of the Miriam College Middle School (MCMS); Mirma Mae C. Tica of the Center for Peace Education; and Genevieve Y. Goño, of the Miriam College Child Study Center, respectively.

Communication students and Miriam College Television (MCTV) members, Pauline Santiago, R.K Dela Rosa, Jean Kelly Chua, and Daniella Marie Castro created an audio visual presentation (AVP) to pay tribute to Henry Sy, Sr. who, through his foundation, donated 100-M for the construction of the Miriam College-Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center, the Philippine’s first integrated makerspace.
The AVP centered on his inspiring qualities that contributed to his success in business. The group presented their work to Miriam College President Dr. Rosario Lapus; Miriam College High School Principal Dr. Edizon Fermin; Department of Communication Chairperson Dr. Maria Margarita Acosta; Marketing and Communications Head Romualdo Romualdo; and Innovation Resource Manager and Project Development Coordinator, Maria Cristina Ibanez.

Middle School’s College Week celebration, which ran from September 5-9, was anchored on two big institutional events—the launch of the Miriam College-Henry Sy Sr. Innovation Center and the opening of the school’s 90th Anniversary celebrations. The unit came up with unique, creative and innovative activities that celebrate the uniqueness of each learner.
The first half of the week dubbed “How Board Are You?” showcased life-sized board games and puzzles with fun and innovative ways on how to play them. The second half, themed “We Serve with All Our Might”, introduced activities that emphasized on how well-bonded the Middle School community is.
Parents who served communities shared with their daughters’ homeroom class ways on how to meaningfully make an impact on the lives of others. In a separate activity, students got the chance to interact with children from the Lingap Kapwa partner communities of ANCOP, Daang Tubo, and Balara.
Capping the activities was a unit Mass with Sr. Teresa Dagdag, M.M. and other Maryknoll Sisters.
Truly, these two-pronged activities gave the unit an extraordinary day of fun and learning.
Miriam College is proud to partner with the Little Free Library (LFL) on the school’s 90th anniversary.
Rooted in the Maryknoll tradition of blazing trails, the school believes that the LFL movement is an innovative way of bringing books and the love of reading to the community.
Apart from putting up Little Free Libraries inside its Diliman and NUVALI campuses, the school also targets to build “90 for 90” or ninety LFLs on its 90th year.
Ninety partner communities will be chosen as beneficiaries of 90 libraries built by Miriam College students. “These libraries will serve as lasting testaments to the Maryknoll Sisters’ trailblazing spirit and love for learning,” says Miriam College President Dr. Rosario O. Lapus. “We want our students to know these communities, understand their needs, and share our love for learning and reading with adults and children alike.”
The LFL project was launched last Sept. 7, during the opening of the school’s 90th anniversary and launch of the MC-HSSIC. The event was graced by LFL President, Miguel Patolot.
“We are thrilled to partner with Little Free Library because this project promotes literacy, fosters community engagement, and encourages integrity, resourcefulness, and innovation,” said Mian Arcega, Project Lead for MC Little Free Libraries.”
Miriam College marked the opening of its 90th anniversary with the launch of the Miriam College-Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center (MC-HSSIC), the Philippines’ first integrated makerspace last Sept. 7, 2016.
Donated by the Henry Sy Foundation through SM Hotels and Convention Corporation president and Maryknoll/Miriam College Alumni (College batch ’74) Elizabeth Sy and designed by renowned architect Ed Calma, the MC-HSSIC gives students and faculty the opportunity and space to immerse themselves in 21st century disciplines the school calls DREAM or Design, Robotics, Engineering, Entrepreneurship, Arts and Mathematics.
Present at the launch were Elizabeth Sy, SM Prime Vice President Hans Sy, Sr., Arch. Ed Calma, Miriam College Board of Trustees Chair Josefina Tan, administrators of Miriam College led by its president Dr. Rosario O. Lapus, Maryknoll Sister Marisa Lichauco and Helen Graham, and executives representing the school’s partners who equipped the laboratories with the latest tools in innovation and contributed to the development of its programs. They are Power Mac Center, Emerson Electric (ASIA) Ltd.-ROHQ., FELTA Multi-Media Inc., C&E Publishing, Inc., Center for Culinary Arts Manila, British Council, Bato Balani Foundation, Inc., and Bangkok University.
“It is here at the Miriam College- Henry Sy, Sr. Innovation Center where we will follow a new model of teaching and learning, one that brings change and improvement to current school and classroom practices—much like what our pioneering and progressive Maryknoll nuns did when they established their first mission school in Malabon in 1926,” said Dr. Lapus. Miriam College is celebrating its 90th Anniversary with the theme, “Mighty@90!”
The makerspace features eight connected and creative learning spaces: Fabrication Laboratory, Instrumentation Laboratory, Engineering and Electronics Laboratory, Multi-Media Laboratory, Performance Laboratory, Kitchen and Café, Playloft, and Innovatrium.
It is supported by an integrated program that will engage its students, especially girls, in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) to DREAM to prepare them for fields of the future. It provides state-of-the-art tools so students and faculty can connect, collaborate, discover, design and create, transforming their ideas into tangible and viable products and services, and allowing them to find solutions to various problems. The STEAM program has been implemented across all units of the campus as early as 2011 under the leadership of Dr. Lapus.
The launch of the MC-HSSIC further strengthens the innovation thrust of the school as it continues to build on its mission of “forming leaders in service” and bringing its brand of education to different growth areas, starting with its fast-growing branch in the south, MC NUVALI, and soon in Porac, Pampanga.
Capping the day’s event was a special concert by the Miriam College High School Glee Club’s current and former members. With their conductor Nancy Roman, the choir serenaded the MC community with their winning songs performed in competitions they have joined abroad. The concert dubbed “Ngalan” marks the search for the choir’s new name through a contest.
