According to Mr. Mario Cortez, Social Science Coordinator, the remarkable achievement of the LSGH delegates in last year’s International History Olympiad in Berlin is a major motivation for the current batch to train doubly hard. Moreover, both students and coaches see this event as an opportunity “to be exposed in international academic competitions, while promoting the excellent curriculum that La Salle Green Hills offers.” Mr. Roy Milante and Mrs. Everlida Jimenez, Social Science teachers, form part of the coaching team  together with Mr. Cortez.
