Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy



To develop a total person, a balanced curriculum, one that speaks of harmony between the activities of the mind and the undertakings of the body is considered essential. IHMA has created Curricular, Co-curricular activities with a provision of joining extra-curricular activities that serve as a venue in training students to be effective leaders inside and outside of school campus.

A. Baynews

The Baynews is the official school paper of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Academy in both departments Grade School & High School. As it abides by the constitution and bylaws promulgated by Campus Journalism Act of 1991, it provides information in an accurate, comprehensive, timely and in understandable manner. It seeks therefore, to facilitate the flow of information directly affecting the school and local community; practice transparency in equalizing Catholic morals and freedom of speech; foster excellence among young journalists as budding transformers of the society; inspire successive generations of people by igniting a climate of social responsiveness and collaboration; and promotes social identity through responsible journalism (cf. Constitution and Bylaws: Baynews, 2007-2008)
