Dzil Libei Elementary shows deep respect for tradition, education

Beauty, culture, elegance go hand in hand with disciplined academics

CAMERON-Webster's dictionary defines culture and tradition as "the totality of socially transmitted behavior, patterns, arts, beliefs, institutions and all other products of human work and thought of a population or community at a given time. A style of social and artistic expression defined to a class or society. The act of developing social, moral, and intellectual faculties through education. Customs and usages transmitted from one generation to another and viewed as a coherent body of precedents influencing the present."
