NDDU inaugurates 4-story IBED Building @ Lagao Campus

Posted on by in with 41 Comments

Just in time for the opening of School Year 2008-2009, Notre Dame of Dadiangas University in Gen. Santos City recently inaugurated its four-storey Integrated Basic Education Department (the new classy name for the word” Elementary”) school building at its sprawling Lagao Campus where its High School Department is also stationed.

NDDU Lagao

Formerly located at its Highway Campus, both departments are now housed in Lagao with the College department subsequently taking over the whole campus in Dadiangas.

Interestingly, the new building, christened St. Marcellin Champagnat Hall (after the founder of the Marist Brothers) looks very much like the main building at the Dadiangas campus, with its eye-catching green stained-glass facade in the center. It will definitely be NDDU’s signature look for the years to come.

Above photograph is the left wing of the new building, while photograph at the right is the right wing facing Tiongson Street in Lagao.

Below is the marker of the new building.

To NDDU Bro. John Tan, FMS and his staff, together with the whole Marist Brothers congregation, including Provincial Supervisor Bro. Manny de Leon, FMS congratulations from Bariles Republic, alumnus of High School Batch 82!!!

MABUHAY ang NOTRE DAME!!! MABUHAY ang MARISTA!!!

    Nice bitaw kaayo! I was there during the inauguration. I have a few pictures of my own in Multiply (exclusive to contacts). On the 3rd floor is the TD Library for kids. It was named after my Grandparents Trinidad and Doroteo Guipo. Though I wasn’t born, only raised in Gensan my family have contributed a lot to our General Santos City. From my parents to my aunties and uncles down to my siblings and my cousins, we are all Damians.

    ^^We can access the website of NDDU but I don’t think it’s up and running. I hope the I.T. Department of the school will look into this.

Besides, talagang hightech na tayo ngayon, even abroad can browse and get informations at the click of their fingers.
