Holy Infant Academy Calapan City (History, Vision, Mission, Goals, Alma Matter Song)

Holy Infant Academy, or HIA, is the only parochial school in Calapan City and the first of fifteen    established in Oriental Mindoro. It was founded in 1937 by the SSpS Sisters and is located in Ilaya, Calapan City in Oriental Mindoro. It offers education in preparatory, elementary grades 1-6, and high school. The school is headed by its principal, Mrs. Alona V. Cueto, with the school director, Fr. Nestor J. Adalia.



On July 2, 1936, Oriental Mindoro became an Apostolic Prefecture, with Bishop William Finnemann as its first Prefect. He requested the SSps Sisters to open a Catholic school under the parish to support the missionary work of the Divine Word Missionaries. On March 26, 1937, the congregation sent Sisters to Calapan. The new school was named Holy Infant Academy, in honor of the Child Jesus, locally known as Sto. Niño.

The World’s No. 1 Pool Player is a Mindorenean!

The 48-year old Filipino from Mindoro named Antonio Lining was now confirmed to be the best pool player in the world. This was according to Ian Anderson, the president of the World Pool-Billiard Association. He was also expecting Lining to overtake Francisco ‘Django’ Bustamante. 

According to Anderson, the champion of the Philippine Open will get 500 ranking points. The second placer will get 400, while the semifinalists are likely to get around 320 to 300.

Lining, part of the Philippine men’s doubles team that won the gold medal in the 2002 Busan Asian Games along with Bustamante, is expected to gain at least 300 points.

Prior to this latest campaign, Lining had a total of 1210 points, only 82 points behind Bustamanate, who didn’t play in the WPA event.

Lining’s climb to the top spot came even after he lost badly to eventual runner-up Ralf Souquet of Germany, 9-0, in their crossover semifinals match.



Antonio Lining (born May 9, 1963 in Mindoro, Philippines) is a Filipino pool player, nicknamed “Nikoy.” He is one of the few left-handed Asian players.

Lining’s most notable appearance was in the Motolite International Nine-ball Tournament in 2000, where he finished second to Francisco Bustamante. Prior to that final, Lining bested Efren Reyes in the quarter-finals.

At the 2002 Busan Asian Games, Lining and Bustamante won the gold medal at the nine-ball doubles event.

From there, he has only made small appearances in later events and had some success, especially in events that were held in Japan


Lito Camo : Singer and Songwriter

Carlito F.Camo also known as Lito Camo (born March 12, 1972) is a Filipino singer and songwriter. He established his reputation more solidly as a composer instead of being a singer which was his initial dream. He is known for songs such as “Bakit Papa? Tawag mo ako?”, “Spaghetti Song”, “Bulaklak”, “Wowowee” and “Otso-Otso”. In the roster of artists and musician, Lito found inspiration in Ely Buendia of the Eraserheads. Lito Camo was a native of Bongabong, Oriental Mindoro.

His debut album entitled Sino Camo? was released on 1997 with “Kung Ikaw” and “Hey Babe” as the album’s singles. His first single catapulted Lito to where he is now today. The album was followed by Ano Camo? but did not sell as well.

His family and friends did not believe his initial success as a recording artist. They came to believe it after seeing him on TV. Though, his dream was to become a singer but opportunity paid him much better as a composer.

Known for his novelty hits, he is dubbed as reigning king of the novelty songs. He turned artists into an instant sensation because of his songs. This include Sexbomb Dancers, Bayani Agbayani, Viva Hotbabes, Willie Revillame, Masculados, April Boy, Angelike Jones, Ai-Ai de las Alas, Sandara Park, K & the Boxers, Manny Pacquiao and many more.
A composer cannot just be a composer forever, this what Lito think as he shifted onto himself and released his 3rd album entitled, Ako Naman.
Camo is now a mainstay of a new sitcom, Show Me Da Manny on GMA Channel 7, together with his fellow friend, boxer Manny Pacquiao.


CLCC Institute of Computer, Arts and Technology (History, Vision, Mission, Academic Offerings, Contacts)


The CLCC Institute of Computer, Arts and Technology ( formerly Computer Learning Center of Calapan, Inc. ) was founded in 1991. Although regular classes opened in August, CLCC was formally inaugurated on September 8 because of the incorporators’ ardent desire to honor the Blessed Virgin on her birthday.

This institution was born through the cooperative efforts of three computer enthuasiasts, Mr. Francis Castro, DWCC Mathematics Subject Chairman, Eng. Leo Bucas, Dean of the DWCC Engineering Department, and Mrs. Marjorie R. Mendoza, Head of DWCC Commerce Department. After acquiring some units of computer and having a faculty of well trained instructors, the school began to offer modular courses on modular literacy (duly acknowledged by the Securities and Exchange Commission). Then it endeavored to offer two-year courses which aim to provide a firm and disciplined successful study and practice of computer education.

This endeavor was not put in vain for in October, Government Permit No. TV-P042, s.1992 was granted to CLCC to offer the following two-year courses: Office Management with Computer, Electronic Computer Technician; the one-year Computer Hardware Technology course; and the computer literacy courses such as Disk Operating System, Word Processing, Database and Spreadsheet. Government Recognition No. TV-R025, s. 1993 for these courses was then granted on July 6, 1993.
Moreover in its ardent aim to offer more varied educational program and both computer and vocational courses, CLCC decided to add courses. And so on September 21, the DECS issued Government Permit No. TV-E058, s.1994 authorizing CLCC to offer two-year courses as Computer Bookkeeping, Computerized Management and one-year courses like Computer Programming, and Electronic Service Technician.

CLCC began to operate with the supervision of Mr. Francis Castro, the first President with invaluable help of Engr. Leo Bucas, Mrs. Marjorie Mendoza, Engr. Mar Roxas, Miss Girlie S. Sonoron and Mr. Sherwin Villao. After 2 ½ months, Miss Nora G. Dacillo came into the scene by serving as full-time working incorporator. She took the position of Corporate Secretay, Registrar and Office Manager; first two positions she still holds up to the present. Then in SY 1992-93 Mrs. Erlinda Caringal began to work as full time working incorporator. Eventually, she was elected President when aMr. Castro resigned. Since Mrs. Caringal has been holding this post.

It is noteworthy to mention the very important role of Mrs. Marjorie Mendoza, another working incorporator, in the operation of CLCC. Being the Administrative and Finance Officer of the school, CLCC has been running smoothly in terms of finances and has remained stable and solvent for further improvements and development of the school.

Ejay Falcon PBB WINNER 2008!!!

Ejay Falcon, born November 21, 1989 in Oriental Mindoro, is an official housemate in the second season of Pinoy BigBrother Teen Edition. This handsome lad is 6 feet tall loves to play basketball and billiards. Ejay was a student in University of Manila during that time. He was dubbed the “Promdi Hottie” ng Mindoro.

At first glance, Ejay doesn’t look the typical promdi for he moves in a smooth and urbane manner. But as one gets to know him, the truth about his hometown begins to show, not that he tries to hide it.
This shy lad from Oriental Mindoro speaks with straight and clear Tagalog, with a taint of Mindorenyo and a Visayan accent. Ejay grew up in the island of Pola where there is a scarcity of water and electricity, and watching TV Patrol and primetime teleseryes from the community TV, the only form of entertainment for the residents.
Despite his timid ways acquired from his rural origins and strict Christian upbringing, Ejay is courageous and determined, ready to take on anything just to free his family from the poverty that ruined his parents’s marriage.

He dreams big for his family that even if he is granted one wish, he did not ask for fame but for his family to be together again. He is hopeful that Pinoy Big Brother is the first big step to realizing this dream.
