Henry Sy Foundation Supports XS Nuvali

Source: Xavier Bulletin

Xavier School is pleased to announce that the Henry Sy family has formalized its support for Xavier School Nuvali.  The Henry Sy Foundation signed the Deed of Donation with Xavier School last May 11, 2010 at SM Mall of Asia, to support the school’s new campus.

The foundation will underwrite the construction of the primary school building, one of three main facilities scheduled in the first phase of development. The deed was signed by Fr. Ismael Zuloaga, SJ, chairman of Xavier School, and witnessed by Amb. Bienvenido Tan, Jr., chairman emeritus. Representing the Sy Foundation were Hans Sy and family patriarch, Henry Sy, Sr., who turned over the initial donation.

The building, which will be named the Henry Sy Primary School Building, will start construction in June and will be completed in time for the school opening in June 2012. Xavier School Nuvali will be administered by Xavier School (San Juan) and will offer the same Xavier education, designed as a college preparatory curriculum with a core Chinese studies program.

However, the new school will be open to both boys and girls, and will maintain a scholarship level of 25% of its student population. The new campus will rise on a 15-hectare property situated in the heart of Nuvali, an eco-community development in Sta. Rosa/Calamba, Laguna. Aligned with the vision of Nuvali, the school campus is being developed to adhere to principles of sustainability, adopting green design and technology.

The dinner,  held at the the Hong Kong Emperor in Mall of Asia, was hosted by Henry Sy and his wife, together with their children, Hans, Herbert, Harley, and Tessie Coson. Joining Fr. Zuloaga and Amb. Tan were Fr. Maximo Barbero, SJ, alumni members of the Board of Trustees and alumni from the Class of 73.

All the sons of Henry Sy, Sr. were educated in Xavier School: Henry, Jr. (Batch ‘70), Hans (Batch ’73), Herbert (Batch ‘75) and Harley (Batch ‘76). Hans Sy currently sits on the board of trustees of the Xavier School Educational and Trust Fund.
