The amphitheatre, with the convention in full swing

The word “quadranscentennial” refers to a quarter of a century. In that same length of time has existed the St. Paul Educators’ Congress, now celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

The Educators’ Congress is an annual gathering of the top school officials and administrators from St. Paul schools nationwide. Organized by the St. Paul of Chartres Education Ministry, the Congress has grown from a handful of participants in 1989 to over 700 educators representing the 39 Paulinian schools throughout the country.

This year’s Educators’ Congress was hosted by St. Paul College of Pasig from May 7-10. It was organized by Sr. Merceditas Ang, the SPC Provincial Assistant for Education and head of the Steering Committee.

Since 2004, Copylandia Office Systems Corporation has been a staunch partner of the SPC Education Ministry. For 10 straight years, we have been a constant presence in the Congress. Each year, we provide all the printing needs, from the daily newsletter to the certificates and compilations of the proceedings.

This year’s congress was notable for another reason. Besides being the 25th anniversary of the Congress, it marked Copylandia’s 10th year of participation as the SPCEM’s official printing partner. To celebrate the occasion, Copylandia donated two brand new units of RISO KS-800 digital duplicators to the Education Ministry. The donation was facilitated by Sr. Gloria Pasamba of St. Paul College Pasig.

During the Congress, Copylandia also came up with a special edition of The Copypost, the company’s official newsletter, commemorating the decade of partnership between Copylandia and the Sisters of St. Paul of Chartres. In charge of the newsletter was Avin Ugay, Copylandia’s head of corporate communications, with assistance from the SPCEM’s documentation committee. The Copypost supplemented the Congress own newsletter, The Paulinian Educator. Both were printed using the state-of-the-art ComColor 9150, the world’s fastest inkjet printer with the lowest cost per print.

Copylandia would like to thank Sr. Gloria Pasamba for the 10 years of fruitful partnership and for making us feel at home in St. Paul. We would also like to thank Sr. Evangeline Anastacio, Directress of St. Paul University Manila and head of the Documentation Committee, for her invaluable assistance and for accommodating our team throughout the event.
