Rain or Shine, Puso ang Labanan graced the SDCA Lympics Opening

The much-anticipated SDCALYMPICS Opening Ceremony took place at the SDCA Skyline, marked by grandeur and enthusiasm last April 16, 2024, hosted by Dr. Richardson Mojica and Reevah Seng Angue, which set the stage for a truly spectacular performance. Among the notable guests were members of the Rain or Shine Elasto Painters basketball team, namely Keith Datu, Luis Villegas, and coach Yeng Guiao who made an appearance. Holding their balloons and wearing their colors, Men and Women's Basketball and Volleyball teams from the five schools participated in the parade of players. They graced the SDCA Skyline with their respective muses, where SNAHS Crusaders Ionaj Dgewel Sapin won as the Best Muse.

The Elasto Painters led the ceremonial toss and painting with their donation of paints to SDCA, signaling the beginning of festivities and showing sportsmanship, camaraderie, and unity. In addition, by facilitating the transfer of donations to SDCA, they demonstrate their commitment to community involvement in a manner that is also consistent with giving back.

A press conference was held in the DRA Hall after an incredible SDCALYMPICS opening ceremony. Students from different programs took advantage of the opportunity to meet the players and their coache and asked a series of questions. That interactive session helped them better understand and appreciate the guests' experiences and views.

By presenting works inspired by prominent guests and professionals, some students have added an artistic element to the occasion, thereby enhancing the cultural tapestry. Razel Leigh Sunga, Alexzandra Carias, and Prof. Rey Joble, the visionary who brought the distinguished guests to SDCA, who were all from the Communication Department, were the perfect hosts for the press conference.

SDCA Executives such as Ms. Mary Grace Demetillo, Dr. Alvin James Virata, Dean of SCMCS, and Dr. Dina Gonzales, Dean of the School of Medicine, were among the notable guests. Bong dela Cruz, the coach of Pikemen, also joined the Rain or Shine Press Conference. The importance of the event and its compatibility with the school's values of education, sportsmanship, and community service were highlighted by their participation. Overall, the press conference was a forum for debate, creativity, and mutual admiration in which St. Dominic College of Asia's vibrant spirit could be expressed.
