Christmas is not just a time to buy and receive material gifts—it is also a time for remembering that during the First Christmas, Baby Jesus was born on a manger, devoid of extravagance, expensive gifts and material wealth. This was the message imparted during the annual Christmas program held on December 19, 2008. Dubbed, ―The ILLC Christmas Story,‖ this year‘s program showcased talents of ILLC students. Ina Mesina, AC Alvaran and Jhona Nisperos acted as the main actresses in the play written and directed by Teachers Nina Almeda and Shary Espiritu. Class E‘s Parol bagged the Best Christmas Class Parol. Hand-made by the students, the parol was covered with bottle labels while its tail was composed of Christmas balls made of sinamay thread. In line with the Christmas tradition, there was also an exchange of gifts among students. Sumptuous food from Abelardo‘s and KFC was served for lunch, completing the gaiety of the Christmas celebration.

November 30, 2008 is now in the history of ILLC as it set a milestone for the PTA. Held at the Camp Crame Multipurpose Hall, this was the PTA‘s paramount project. It served as a fundraiser for the Job Readiness Program. The event led by Mrs. Mawie Aglipay and the rest of the PTA was hosted by Mr. Louie Jocson and Mr. Chuck de Leon. The PTA was able to collect double of their targeted amount in ticket sales and corporate sponsorships. Selected mommies were tapped to perform during the intermission number. The ravishing mothers danced to the tune of Stayin‘ Alive. They truly showed the crowd that they are the Queens of the dance floor! Not to be outdone, the teachers performed a 70s themed medley composed of well-loved dance hits which caused a thundering excitement in the hall. The Grand Prize of P20,000.00 was brought home by Ate Inday, the caregiver of Bradley Ty. Congrats, Ate Inday!

In commemoration of the United Nations Day, ILLC held its UN Day Program on October 22, 2008. The theme for this year‘s UN Day festivities was entitled,  "Beyond Boundaries: Moving Towards Unity". The class presentations gave us a taste of what each nation has to offer. Judges declared Valerie Limcaoco as the Best Dressed Female and Mannix Hashim as the Best Dressed Male. In addition, Class A – Egypt won the Best Decorated Class award. The Dance Club performed yet another groovy number depicting various dances from all around the world. Their number surely delighted the students and parents as well! The finale number was led by the Music Club. While they were singing Michael Jackson‘s ―Heal the World,‖ students from the different classes went out of their rooms to form a human chain at the ILLC gardens.

The beginning of the each school year can never be complete without the Parent-Teacher Assembly (PTA). This year‘s PTA held last Sept. 20, 2008 had a two-fold objective. The first and foremost was to foster camaraderie among the parents and teachers, while the second objective was to motivate the parents to become more active in school projects. The assembly started with an ice breaker called Two Truths and a Lie. The game definitely roused hilarious and even naughty bits of trivia from the parents!

Pabitin, Patadyong and Puto. What do these three things have in common? The correct answer is that we all see them during the Linggo ng Wika! Last August 22, ILLC celebrated the Linggo ng Wika with a fiesta! Students and teachers alike came to school wearing Filipiniana costumes from different ethnic tribes and provinces in the Philippines. The next part of the program was the Palarong Pinoy. Selected students had an interpretative dance number as the Music Club led the community in singing the finale song, Paraiso. Like a fiesta, the ILLC Community became one in feasting over pansit, lumpia, barbeque and different kinds of kakanin!

Was it an animal invasion?! A zoo on the loose?! Nope, it was ILLC‘s Foundation Day!

David, ILLC‘s Executive Director, Dr. Pineda talked about taking care of our pets properly. Then it was time for the pets to take the center stage.
