Ars: By Voice, By Hand
by Sergei Lim
Arts. Visual and performance. Symbols and words. Print and voice. The arts are as diverse as the people that exemplify them. In the class of Canisius, this is never false.
On the 28th of January at 2 o’clock in the afternoon at Paco Park, Manila, Elise Ofilada was awarded second place in essay writing for her piece entitled “Philippine Heritage: the Flawed Vehicle of Metaphor”. Elise is a member of Pugad, Ampersand Literature and Art Folio, and a practicing spoken word artist.
For the past few weeks at the Ateneo Senior High School lobby, there has been a small art exhibit, dubbed “Crop” featuring the works of various students, including the portrait of Deji Nela Eclarin, entitled “Loca”. Deji is a member of the Art Guild, Ampersand Literature and Art Folio, and can be commissioned into creating art pieces.
Mens Sana in Corpore Sano: Swim and Spike for Greatness
by Aaron Thomas Santos
There is a saying in Latin, “Mens sana in corpore sano”. In English, the saying stands for “sound mind, sound body”, which embodies the ideal Atenean. This shows that an ideal Atenean should be able to excel in both the physical world and the mental. Sports and academics. Two students from Canisius are able to embody this saying: Abai Llenos and Suzanne Himor.
Suzanne Himor has been a prominent name in the swimming competition. Recently, she was able to lead the newly formed girls’ swimming team by setting a new record for the 200 m butterfly with a time of 2 mins and 25.30 seconds. Her other achievements in the recent UAAP 79 were receiving one gold medal, two silver medals, and one bronze medal. She also represented Region IV-A or the CALABARZON region at Palarong Pambansa 2016 held at the province of Albay, Philippines.

The Ateneo is known for its students’ excellence in the academics with one of its mottos being the Latin phrase “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam”, which stands for “For the Greater Glory of God”. 11- Canisius is not an exception, as shown by its two first honor students.
Keziah Pasion is not only at the top of her class, awarded as a first honor student last 2016, she is also a member of both the Ateneo Math Olympiad (AMO) and the Hilites student organization.
