Muy Excellente

SUCCESSFULLY climbing Mount Everest, world's highest peak, reflects how a leader shows "muy excellente" (excellent) skills.

Mountaineering can obliterate persons of weaker hearts and stamina.

Distinguished leaders must know how to climb the rugged terrain of catastrophe. Thereafter, she must smash through the wall of logistical, practical and geographical hardships. Ultimately, she must lead her team of varied talents and personalities so they can stamp their boots through a common path of success and surging triumph.


In Angeles City, specifically, at Holy Family Academy, we see leaders who profile honesty, integrity and upright principles. Harmonizing the principle of "Ora et Labora" or "Prayer with Work," they walk on the pathway of Benedictine goodwill and great service.

My hat off to the following officers:

Yes! How people are inspired by enlightened leaders like Ines L. Manaloto and her co-officers who inspire us to ascend the apex of summum bonum (highest good).


You and I are one in our pursuit of goodness.

Moving together as co-journeyers in the terra firma of bravery, we all can transcend the rocky walls of doubts, darkness and devastation. We have the power in our hands to wipe out the dark night of crisis, thereafter, we can spread the golden dawn of service and leadership.

Like the brave mountaineers who surmounted the majestic Mount Everest in Nepal (Sir Edmund Hillary- New Zealand and Sir Tenzing Norgay -Nepal) in 1953; their success shines in our world as a symbolic light of tenacious hearts and spirits.

Ascending the 29,029 feet above sea level Mt. Everest peak ultimately highlights the "muy excellente" code of leadership.

To all our readers, for all times, may the sunlight of blessings shine in your minds, hearts and spirits!
