OUR PRIDE AND GLORY, Xavier School at Fifty is a handsome coffeetable book that commemorates the Golden Jubilee of Xavier School (1956-2006). The book features over 200 photos from the Xavier School Archives and contemporary shots taken by amateur and professional photographers including acclaimed lensman Pat Dy (’92).

Ismael Zuloaga, SJ, Mrs. Jenny Huang Go, former Energy Secretary Vince Perez (’75), John Burtkenley Ong (’86), Johnip Cua (’72) and many others.
The essays are grouped into six sections, each focusing on of the 6Cs that define the Xavierian at graduation: Conscience, Character, Community, Competence, Culture, and Compassion. The book features a brief history of Xavier School by Fr. Santos Mena, SJ, and is book-ended by an introductory essay from current School Director Fr. Johnny Go, SJ (’79), and the homily by Fr. Daniel Huang, SJ (/76), the Fr. Provincial, given on the opening of the school’s Golden Jubilee.
Designed by famed artist Felix Mago Miguel and edited by Fr. Ari Dy, SJ (’89), this limited-edition book is a collector’s item that belongs in every Xaverian’s library. There will only be a one-run printing of 1500 copies which will retail at P1000 each. The book is now available at the Golden Jubilee Office, tel. no. 723 0481 (loc. 380). All proceeds will benefit the school’s scholarship fund (XSETF).
