 Twenty Five vivacious boys and girls made it to the first! They are the PIONEERS of a new institution that will mark a milestone in the history of the Rogationist of the Sacred Heart in the Philippines. The new school can simply be called RCP! - (Rogationist College-Paranaque).

At the opening mass it is mentioned: “This day, in the life of each one marks a new story, part of our own personal history…”; June 16, 2008, a date that will truly be remembered, kept in the memory of all those present, most especially the children, the bearer of the RCP torch of which flame will be kept alight through the years.

This first and historic School year was officially opened with the Parents Orientation Program. The major superior, Fr. Bruno Rampazzo, RCJ was the main celebrant of the Holy mass and with him were Fr.  John Lucas, RCJ School Board Member and Fr. Eric Raveza III, RCJ, the President of RCP.

The whole morning affair focussed mainly in the presentation of RCP Vision – Mission – Goals, the Course program (Pre-school and Grade School), the presentation of the School Board, Administrators, Faculty and staff.

Fr. Eric Raveza, in his opening remarks brought into light the figure of St. Hannibal Mary di Francia and the spirit that animates the community of the Rogationists: the passion for the ROGATE and the love for the underprivileged children. 

Three special programs in the curriculum were highlighted through short presentation from each of the instructor in-charge: Music, Mandarin and Taekwondo.

RCP Curriculum highlights three major programs. The academics program as mandated by the DepEd, the culture enhancement program and the values formation program. Each is a complimentary to the other and these three make up the whole ROGATE Education Program.

The Parent Orientation Program concluded with the campus tour where everyone enjoyed and marvelled at the beauty and harmony of the whole building. The joyful atmosphere that was created around, through the lively and tiny voices of the children, truly manifested that each of the PIONEERS has found a home. Truly, one can think at the end, that RCP was providentially built with the particular touch of Mary that makes everyone feels at home.
