Mens Sana In Corpore San : a sound mind in a sound body.
As in the past, the Annual Reading of Honors has been the perfect venue for the school to recognize the achievements of the students.
Last June 20, 2006, the whole High School unit, including the parents of the awardees, gathered in the gym for a short program.
Among those honored were the Xavier and Magis awardees. Presented by Assistant Principal for Formation, Mr Michael de los Reyes, the Xavier Award was given to Filbert Aaron Tiu (H2A) and Jonn Terence Dy (H3E). Moreover, nine students were presented the Magis Award, namely: Gian Louis Yap (H1A), Victorino Mariano Floro IV (H1B), Jaime Yu (H1B), John Vincent Alonzo (H1E), Diego Mikael de Ocampo (H1H), Evan Saunders Chen (H2B), Pierre Ignatius Co (H3C), Carlo Go (H3C), and Thompson Christian Tang (H3D).
Aside from the abovementioned awards, first honors, second honors, and Gawad Uliran certificates were presented by Mr. Jonathan Lacson, H1 and H2 team leader, Mrs. Irene Barcelon, H3 and H4 team leader, and Mrs. Fides Abad, High School Students’ Activities Coordinator. More than 50 worthy students were awarded these distinctions.
Also a recipient of the Xavier award in high school, Mr. Frederick Tiu, the current School Treasurer, talked about the different idols he had in his life. Among them were Batman, Larry Bird, The Beatles and most significant of all was Jesus Christ. He concluded by saying that although it is difficult to emulate one’s idol, he still continues to follow the examples of Jesus Christ as the perfect role model for all.
Among those present during the ceremonies were School Director Fr. Johnny Go, S.J. and High School Principal Mrs. Jane Cacacho who reminded the Xaverians to look up to the awardees as their ‘idols’ and strive to imitate their example.
