My dear IBED Bedan family,

As we open the new Academic Year, AY 2018-2019, we praise and thank the Almighty   Father for bringing us together as one BEDAN Family in the Integrated Basic Education Department of San Beda University.

While we all take pride of San Beda University, we join the whole Bedan community in pursuing Academic Excellence, Quality and Relevant research, High Involvement in Extension Services, External Linkages and Efficient Student Services.

Furthermore, we push together our dream towards the integral Christian formation of every member of the IBED Family and the BEDAN community as well.

Let us join the university in the journey to growth and transformation. In particular, we call each one to focus more relentlessly toward one direction to the fulfilment of the IBED major tasks this Academic Year such as the following:

The continuous alignment of all Academic and Co-Curricular Programs and Activities with the school’s VISION-MISSION, goals, objectives and the 10 Hallmarks of Benedictine Education;

The preparation of the upcoming PAASCU resurvey of the department;

The active participation of every member on nurturing the environment to realize the AY 2018-2019 Theme: Stewardship Towards Creation;

The continuous and effective implementation of the K to 12 Program to all grade levels.

We hope and pray for the realization of these major tasks as we strive to become fully human, wholly Christian, truly Filipino and globally competitive.

To the students who were with us last year, welcome back to your second home. To the new students, thank you for choosing San Beda University as your second home.

That in all things God may be glorified.

Basic Education Department Philosophy and Goals of Education

Committed to the Christian vision of man, inspired by the Benedictine ideals, adapting to the Filipino learner’s needs and situation, guided by the contemporary findings on learning processes and facilitating conditions, San Beda University Basic Education Department has evolved a philosophy of education which affirms:

1. that education is a life-long process of the “bringing forth”, the actualization of the limitless possibilities of the person;

2. that the school, in our age, is a phase in the process of a person’s growth, and is the formal facilitating factor in the child’s learning;

3. that communication is the process whereby a message becomes common to both the giver and the receiver of the communication;

4. that learning is the change effected in the life of a person due to exposure to an experience;

5. that teaching facilitates learning by putting together those conditions most conducive to learning;

6. that encounter, which is the meeting of persons in the context of respect and acceptance, is the necessary condition of learning.

As a Benedictine School and following fourteen centuries of Benedictine tradition, San Beda University Basic Education Department, administered by the monks of St. Benedict, offers what is authentically the monastic heritage.

Experience of the Gospel message of loving fellowship
Appreciation of the liturgy
Sensitive openness to the divine dimension of human life
disciplined pursuit of studies
