Two years ago, I stood on this very stage and shocked my batchmates when I performed a jazzed up version of Chicago’s All That Jazz for our English One Act Play. Our section ended up winning the contest, but I never performed in a play again. Carlos Locsin, Xavier Awardee
Our stay at El Nido turned out very well. Chery and I have been there before so this time was a repeat. The only bad experience on the whole trip was the baggage allocation is just rediculously discouraging to divers. The weight limit for each passenger is 15 kilos including hand carry. David Lim, XS '70
Sometime in September, I received an envelope from Xavier School. Since I have been receiving regular correspondence from the school, this particular envelope did not raise any alarm bells. Greg Yu, XS‘75

It was 8am. Saturday July 15, 2006. The voice on the cell phone said, “I’m running late. Can you check if the projector has been set up yet?” It was a voice message from Desi, one of the Charlie Brown guys. I looked at the car dashboard. Raymond Chua

Seeing the mass of people positioned along Ever Gotesco Commonwealth – with different banners, streamers and paraphernalia expressing their opposition to the President, soaked in rain and sweat – while I was on my way to the Batasang Pambansa Complex for the President’s State of the Nation Address – made me think of what really is the state of our nation at present. Brian Ong (XS'06)
The 3-day closed retreat is a golden opportunity for the alumni to take a break from their hectic schedules and reconnect with their spiritual selves. All Xaverians, who continue to impact the development of Xavier School and the community at large, are invited to reflect on how they can improve their lives to measure up to the Xavier ideal of “men for others”.
Since not all alumni will be able to attend the retreat, Xavier School has planned a series of recollections for the spiritual renewal of as many of the alumni as possible in this Jubilee Year. Three recollections are planned focusing on three specific alumni groups.
The Xavier Alumni RecolleXSion was held at the University of San Francisco (USF) on Sunday, July 23rd, with Fr. Ari Dy, SJ ’89 as recollection master.
