HS ’67 – THE GOLDEN JUBILARIANS
The year 2017 marks the 50th year of our SPC High School Class ’67 which was composed of 81 graduates. As early as the latter part of 2015, a group of active members in Metro Manila, led by our Class President Lilia Mendoza-Tuazon, who was awarded a TOPAS for the year, already started to meet and discuss preparations on how to celebrate our Golden Jubilee. It has then become a very busy 2016 for us all which culminated at the big event, the Grand Alumni Homecoming, on January 14, 2017.
We were able to gather forty (40) from here and abroad for our Ruby in 2007 and it was our ambitious goal to beat that by bringing together more classmates for our Golden. We continued to keep in touch and maintained a close friendship among us which has even become deeper and extraordinary as time went by. Thank God for the advent of internet, SMS, e-mails, Facebook, Messenger, Viber and other similar interventions, we were able to nurture our relationships. We have been communicating and we continued to reach out to all others whom we missed at our 40th and whom we expected to be with us this time. It is unfortunate, however, that we shall forever be missing nine (9) of us who have now passed away.
Every 3rd Saturday of each month, class members met at the St. Paul Alumni Office. Each meeting was always a happy occasion as suggestions were excitedly being recommended. Sessions were always capped with lunch either there at the meeting room or at nearby Robinson’s Magnolia for more bonding. Every now and then, meetings were held out-of-town at some classmates’ farm or resthouse or residence especially when we were celebrating important occasions like birthdays and Christmas.
Pre- and post-homecoming activities were organized to form part of our Golden Jubilee celebration. On the eve of the homecoming, the class was treated to a Ballroom Night at the Society Lounge in Makati. The following week, twenty-five (25) of us classmates went on an overnight trip to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a unique heritage and cultural site in Bagac, Bataan. These were treats more especially arranged for the enjoyment and pleasure of our visiting classmates from abroad, whose primary reason for coming home was to attend this once-in-a lifetime milestone, and who will otherwise have no other chance to meet, re-connect and mingle with childhood friends and classmates.
More than the camaraderie and good-fellowship, we have put up a special fund from which an amount was donated to our dear Sisters of St. Paul at the homecoming night. We have also been inspired anew to sponsor students for scholarship. As in our Ruby, we have again allocated funds for some deserving individuals to attend College and make something special of themselves. This is a great opportunity for us, Class ’67, to share our blessings with future Paulinian graduates and leave our legacy as we give back our gratitude to St. Paul, our dear Alma Mater.
As a result of the success of this our Golden Jubilee, we have agreed to meet quarterly from now on for birthday celebrations and/or get togethers should a foreign-based classmate come home to visit. This early, we are already planning our next out-of-town group tour to Cebu around January or February next year. We’re getting all excited as we gear up for our next Jubilee – our EMERALD in 2022!!!
SPUQC HS BATCH ’92 “A HOLIDAY BAZAAR”
Last November 18, 2016, students from all levels and the faculty and staff of SPUQC experienced something different at the Mere Marie Micheau Hall. The school gym was busy, not with a sports activity but with vendors selling delicious food and wonderful items. This feast was because of the very 1st holiday bazaar inside St. Paul University QC.
A HOLIDAY BAZAAR is one of the fundraising events of SPUQC High School Batch 1992. This is in preparation for their upcoming Silver Jubilee Homecoming on January 14, 2017. With the help of the SPUQCAAI (St. Paul University QC Alumni Association, Inc.), A HOLIDAY BAZAAR ran from November 18 to November 19, 2016.
Batch 1992’s Team Bazaar prepared the necessary requirements to make the event successful. Posters and banners of the event were displayed in strategic areas around the campus to promote the event to students, faculty, staff and alumni. It was also advertised through social media, radio stations and through friends and families.
In a little over 2 months of preparation, the bazaar registered 52 stall occupants. With all these merchants and a team from Batch 1992, A HOLIDAY BAZAAR opened its doors, exclusively for the Paulinian community (students, faculty, staff, and alumni) at exactly 8:00 in the morning of November 18, 2016.
Guests shopped from over 30 stalls of novelty items, RTW, make-up and accessories, arts and crafts, bags and clothes, and even toys for the little ones.
They also chose from 17 stalls of different food and drinks. Such as pizza, burger, takoyaki, sushi, pasta, chips, lemonade and more.
Other merchants offered services, such as the Caricatoon, which was a hit among the younger ones. There was even a free facial by Jordan’s Beauty Secrets.
One of the features of the event is the cooking demo. From the Professional Academy of Culinary Education (PACE), together with our very own Batch 1992 alumna, Chef Abigail De Guia- Flores, they showed how to make Chocolate Christmas Truffles and Oreo Lasagna. Such a treat with those overflowing free samples to taste! Perfect for the holidays indeed!
A Holiday Bazaar was made even more special as it became an avenue for SPUQC alumni to rekindle old friendships made stronger throughout the years. But more importantly, it was a channel to share one’s blessing to another especially to beneficiaries of the Sr. Marie Angela Barrios Trust Fund where all proceeds of the fundraising will go.
In our efforts to help others, we the Silver Jubilarians of HS Batch ’92 aspire to show that we are one with SPUQC’s mission in “forming individuals into becoming integrated and compassionate in the service of the Church and society.” All for the glory of God!
