The Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Parochial School and the Sto. Niño Parish School attended the CEAP National Convention in Western Visayas last September 25-27, 2019 with Dr. Leo B. Galve, Dr. Marcella D. Bejado, Mrs. Susana S. Nahag, Ms. Maria Imelda M. Balabat and Mrs. Elma O. Acena as delegates. The three main objectives of the participation to the National Assembly Center include but are not limited to: 1. Update on new innovations and trends in Catholic Education; 2. Receive the certificates of new membership; and 3. Explore Guimaras. The delegates flew from Manila on September 24, 2019 at 11:00 p.m. and arrived at Iloilo International Airport 5 minutes before midnight. They were ferried to Days Hotel with their couch captain for three days, Mr. Joe Ann Detanoy. Despite lack of sleep, the group managed to wake up early, ate breakfast and proceeded to Iloilo Convention Center to claim their kits and attended the Eucharistic Celebration in the afternoon. Day two marked the meat of the convention as the delegates were divided into 2 groups to attend the concurrent sessions for high school teachers and for administration. The evening was quite exciting as Phoenix Publishing House and Aviba invited the group for dinner. Both invitations were attended. In Day 3, the delegates made sure to be in the venue as early as possible in order to secure a place near the stage to receive the recognition certificates. Sto. Niño Parish School, despite being the new member of CEAP, received the Plaque of Recognition for celebrating its 25th founding anniversary. Dr. Bejado received the plaque of recognition from the outgoing president Rev. Fr. Joel E. Tabora, SJ. After which, representatives from new member schools were called to receive the certificate of membership. Dr. Bejado represented Sto. Niño  while Dr. Galve and Mrs. Nahag represented Sto. Tomas de Villanueva. Before noon, the team headed to Jordan, Guimaras through the newly restored pump boat transport as it was suspended due to the sea mishap that happened last August 2019. They stayed in San Antonio, Nueva Valencia, the birthplace of Dr. Galve. Before flying back to Manila, the delegates were treated to a sumptuous lunch in honor of the fest of St. Michael the Archangel.
