Last October 8, 2016, Kong Hua school reached another milestone with the successful blessing of the newly erected Senior High School building and the dedication of the auditorium to Saint Candida Maria de Jesus.

It was a momentous event for the school as distinguished guests which included the school’s board of trustees, benefactors, stake holders and the mayor himself, Honorable Oscar Moreno were in attendance to show their full support to the school.


The aforementioned event kicked off with the celebration of the Holy Eucharist at the school’s auditorium. The Archbishop of the Diocease of Cagayan de Oro, Most Reverend Antonio Ledesma, SJ,DD presided the mass together with Monsignor Noly Cue, LRMS with the other LRMS Priests namely, Fr. Jomar J. Burgos, LRMS, Fr. Garry Neil Fuentebella, LRMS, Fr. Roberto V. Fabillo, LRMS, Fr. Roberto B. Barcelona, LRMS, Fr. Peter Xue Lei Zhang, LRMS, Fr. Gil Escalante and Fr. Froilan Briones, SSS as the co-celebrators.


In his homily, he has made mention about inculcating in the youth values of the word of God for the pursuit of greater and productive future generations of learners as well as emphasizing the role of teachers in envisioning and making this pursuit possible.  


After the mass, the guests were led to assemble in front of the Auditorium to witness  its dedication to Saint Candida Maria de Jesus, the founder of Hijas de Jesus congregation. The said congregation had served the school as administrators for twenty-six (26) years. Following the dedication ceremony, the guests along with the priests, administrators, board of trustees and faculty and staff proceeded in front of the Senior High Building, this time, to witness the ribbon cutting and the blessing of the four-story building.


In celebration of a fruitful and successful event, a striking short show of firecrackers and Lion and Dragon Dance showcased by select Kong Hua School Students entertained the attendees.


A few moments after the presentation, the guests were usherred to the gymnasium for a simple banquet. As the guests enjoyed their food, the donors of the building and honored guests were given recognition in gratitude of their help and support for Kong Hua School.


The event concluded with another outstanding presentation of the Dragon Dance performed by talented and competent students from the school. The collective effort of everyone made the event a successful one.
