THE HISTORY

On June 20, 1948, OUR LADY OF FATIMA ACADEMY was established in Tanauan, Batangas by the Augustinian Sisters of Our lady of Consolation in response to the late Bishop Verzosa, D.D. and Fr. Godofredo Mari?, Parish Priest of Tanauan, for a Catholic school administered by a religious congregation.

Sister Encarnacion delos Remedios, OSA, a native of Tanauan, was commissioned to start the mission with three other sisters. They were Sisters Maria del Sagrado Corazon, Fernanda de San Jose and Josefa dela Purificacion. With Sister Encarnacion as Superior-Directress, the Sisters started the school with hope and courage amidst the difficulties they encountered. The Platon family, related to Sr. Encarnacion, provided them shelter while the school building was under construction.

The first building was inaugurated on October 28, 1948, with three (3) classrooms for Kindergarten, Grade One and First Year, a small library, a space for the canteen and the Sister's quarters.

Complete elementary and secondary courses were offered the following schoolyear 1949-1950. The First Year Junior Normal was opened. Government recognition was given to the school at the end of the year. Three years later, the school decided to stop offering the Junior Normal Course and focus on the Basic Education.

From 1951-1954 Sister Pilar Prospero was the Superior and Sister Encarnacion was the Directress-Principal. Sister Ma. Guadalupe replaced Sister Fernanda de San Jose who was assigned to another community.

In 1954, Bishop Alejandro Olalia, D.D. became Bishop of Lipa. Sister Amparo Martinez replaced Sister Pilar as Superior and Sister Leticia de San Jose was the directress of the school.

The years that followed posed new challenges to the school administration that had to cope with the increasing school population. With courage and determination the community, under the leadership of Sister Leticia de San Jose the new superior-directress, started the construction of the annex building from a loan fund in 1960. The high school department, the office of the directress, Finance, laboratory and school clinic were transferred to this building.

During this period, the school participated actively in the LIDICSA 9Lipa Archdiocese Catholic Schools Association) where trophies and other awards were won in the cultural, academic, sports and other inter-school competitions.

Sister Soledad Eamilao (1963-1969) succeeded Sister Leticia de San Jose as superior-directress. With her were Sisters Elisa de Sta. Monica, Maria, del Sagrado, Corazon Concepcion, Antonia Mationg Jacobita and Flordeliz. In 1967, another building was constructed to accommodate the Sisters' Residence for the intern teachers/students, library and chapel.

From 1969-1970, the school was under a new administration. Sr. Susana Agudelo was Superior from 1969-1970 and Sister Adelina Segismundo took over as Superior-Principal for the three remaining years. Emphasis was on the total development of students. Participation in co-curricular activities was highly encouraged while the teachers did their best to ensure quality instruction. The SCB (Student Coordinating Board) was very active during this period.

The school celebrated its Silver jubilee in 1972 during the term of Sr. Maria Angelina Abando, Superior-Principal. Cooperative Education was introduced and became a part of the curriculum. The Credit Union for the teaching and non-teaching personnel and the laboratory for the students were also organized.

Sister Lucia Bantigue succeeded Sister Angelina as Principal in 1976-1977. After that year, Sister Consolata Dalisay assumed the position of Superior-Principal with Sister Fidelis Paredes as Principal of the elementary department and Miss Imelda Zagala as assistant High School Principal. The Pearl jubilee celebration in 1978 was highlighted by the presentation of DULSAWIT (dula-sayaw-awit) and the calendar in capsule. The elementary building was built through a loan and blessed in October 1978.

Sister Petronila Egalin succeeded Sister Consolata as Principal of both the elementary and secondary departments. After a few months, Sister Ma. Fidelis Paredes took over. It was during this period that the parents were greatly involved in the scouting activities of children. The Cooperative Program of the school gained remarkable development during the chairmanship of Mr. Roberto Resterio. The introduction of the CSSD program paved the way to a systematic assessment of the school's operation.

From 1983-1985, Sr. Ana Isabel Marcelo was the Principal of both departments. With the assistance of Sr. Imelda Mora, many changes took place in the school. She provided inputs on T.P.O. (Terminal performance Objective), E.O. (Enabling Objectives) on syllabus making and lesson planning. Clarification of the formulation of the OLFA Mission Statement, Philosophy and goal was also facilitated by her and deepened by the CSSD Program. To accommodate the growing population, a five-room storey building was built near the boys' quarters. The school adopted new structures in management as a response to the needs of the times; the call for lay empowerment. Thus, an Academic Coordinator and Subject Area Chairpersons who would assist the Principal in the discharge of her duties were appointed. Miss Norma Cuenca was appointed Academic Coordinator of both departments and Miss Andrea Hose?, Miss Remedios Molinyawe, Mrs. Luciana Planas, Mr. Roberto Resterio and Miss Patricia Molinar as Subject Area Chairpersons.

Sr. Natividad Santillan succeeded Sr. Ana Isabel Marcelo. Social consciousness was awakened among the students, faculty and non-teaching personnel.

OLFA started to reach out to the larger community by visiting prisoners and participating in mobilized activities in defense of human rights. The high school students were sent out for exposure to prisons, hospitals, squatters' area, etc. Each activity was followed by s Theological Reflection to deepen their experiences. The Family Council was organized. The Cooperative building was constructed with the kainan.

Sister Natividad was replaced by Sister Ma. Consolata Dalisay at the time when the school was preparing for its Ruby Jubilee. Fund raising was initiated through Holloween and caroling. Mother Teresita Villaluz was the consultant for the preparation of the event. The theme was "OLFA SA TAPYAS AT SINAG NG RUBY". The whole affair was highlighted by the coronation of Miss Ruby Jubilee, the DULSAWIT Part II and field demonstrations.

The following six years (1988-1994) with Sr. Concepcion Leopoldo were the most productive years in terms of physical plant development. Enrolment was increasing and rooms were constructed. The San Agustin Building and the additional was blessed by Msgr. Emeterio Chavez on August 28, 1990. The old administration building was extended to accommodate the computer room and the laboratory followed by the construction of the multi-purpose hall/gymnasium, which was made possible through the generosity of the high school graduates from school year 1989-1994.

In 1991-1992, the Mother Rita Barcelo Outreach Program started. An initial survey was made and the school decided to adopt a depressed area in Tanauan.

The school canteen was built immediately after the construction of the San Agustin Building. The classroom shed was also built to accommodate the elementary pupils occupying the oldest building that was demolished to give way to the laying of the corner stone of the three-storey building.

March 4-5, 1993 were red-letter days for the school. The Congregational Evaluation Visit (CEV II) was conducted to assess the school's administration, instruction, facilities and others. One of the recommendations of the team was for the school to undergo the PAASCU preliminary visit.

To meet the demands of the increasing number of both teachers and students and to facilitate supervision, the administration deemed it wise to have Academic Coordinators for each department. Miss Remedios Molinyawe was appointed Coordinator of Academic Affairs for the high school department and Miss Norma Cuenca was retained Coordinator of Academic Affairs for the elementary department.

The three-storey building (First and second phases) was blessed on October 13, 1993. Covered walks were installed and through the cooperation and support of the parents in launching the Mr. &Ms. Sapphire for both departments, a high fence was built around school campus for the security of the students.

The year 1994-1995 under the supervision of Sister Adelina Segismundo marked a great chance not only in the improvement of facilities but also in upgrading the quality of instruction that the school offers. The subject area chairmanship of the elementary department with the exception of Religion and Sibika were separated from that of the High School. A year later, the old building, the principal's office, the academic coordinators' offices. The guidance office as well as the Home Economics room (formerly the science Laboratory Room) were renovated. Roofs were painted, colorful tables and chairs for the Kindergarten were made. Playground for the Kindergarten was also improved. One of the rooms in the classroom shed became the Science Laboratory room for the elementary department.

The summer of 1997 marked the great improvement of the school as far as physical facilities are concerned. Among these were the renovations of old comfort rooms and the construction of new ones near the gymnasium. The construction of covered walk leading to the comfort rooms was also undertaken. The canteen and the OLFA Multi-purpose Cooperative also underwent renovations and beautification to improve its services. Likewise, an air-conditioner was installed in the students' oratory.

The Family Council has contributed greatly for the improvement of school facilities. They donated the following: ceiling fans for the classrooms, sound systems, chairs for the gymnasium and air-condition unit for the oratory.

It is noteworthy that the improvement of facilities enhanced instruction. As an evidence, the High School Department showed exemplary results in the National Secondary Achievement Test by passing 100% of the Fourth Year students for the past three years (1994-1997).

Last November 12-13, 1997 and January 19-20, 1998 the preliminary survey of the PAASCU for the Grade School and High School took place respectively. Everybody in the academic community was anxious to know the result of this visit. On May 6, 1998, a communication was received from PAASCU informing the Principal that a consultancy visit in the area of instruction for bot department may be requested from their office. Then on July 8 of the same year, the good news came that OLFA satisfactorily met the requirements of the PAASCU. A certification was issued by the Federation of Accrediting agencies of the Philippines 9FAAP) stating that OLFA is given Accreditation Level I until April 2000.

The third phase of the administration building was completed last summer 1998 with seven classrooms, a spacious clinic, air-conditioned computer laboratory for the grade school, offices for the alumni and Family Council Research and Development, CIMC, rest room and an air-conditioned VR which can accommodate 270 students. A shop building was constructed at the back of the new building. A statue of Mother Rita Barcelona y Pages, foundries of the Augustinian Sisters of Our Lady of Consolation was erected in the center of the garden within the building.

Year 1998 was the Golden Jubilee of the schools' foundation. The third phase of the administration building and the renovated gymnasium were blessed by Archbishop Gaudencio Rosales, D.D. on October 13, 1998 amidst a gathering of Sisters, Priests, Alumni Faculty, Students and Guests. 1998 was also the year of the Grand Alumni Homecoming which was celebrated with a bang on October 10.

With God's Divine Providence and the Blessed Mothers' loving intercession, Our Lady of Fatima Academy pledges to keep her banner waving highs she continues to unfelt the Congregation's Mission to respond to the needs of the needs of the times in her curricular and co-curricular offerings, and thus live up to her commitment of building a Community of Friends that is "Maka-Diyos, Maka-Bayan, maka-Tao and Maka-Kalikasan".
