The inauguration of Xavier School Nuvali in Calamba City, Laguna attracted over 500 guests who witnessed the blessing of the school’s first two facilities. The program highlighted the 15-hectare land donation of Aurora Properties, Inc., a joint venture between Ayala Land and the Jose A. Yulo family. The special guest of honor was Education Secretary Bro. Armin Luistro, FSC, who unveiled the commemorative marker, alongside school officials led by school president, Fr. Johnny Go, SJ and board chairman Fr. Ismael Zuloaga, SJ.

Inaugurated during the event were the Henry Sy Sr. Primary School Building and the Ramon S. Ang Gymnasium. Henry Sy Sr. attended the event, accompanied by his wife Felicidad Sy and sons Herbert and Harley Sy, both Xavier alumni. The alumni donors of the building’s 39 especially designed rooms and facilities also attended the blessing. San Miguel Corp. president Ramon Ang presided over the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the gym.

Over 30 Jesuit priests led by The Very Reverend Fr. Jose Cecilio Magadia, SJ, Provincial Superior, turned up for the blessing and celebration of the Mass of the Holy Spirit, officiated by The Most Rev. Francisco San Diego, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Pasig. The program concluded with a message of thanks from Fr. Johnny Go, SJ and the ceremonial lighting of the Xavier flame by Daniel Ng, student council president of Xavier School in San Juan, and two students of the new school in Nuvali.

The alumni members of the school’s board of trustees were all present to welcome the guests including Rudy Ang, Francis Chua, Carlos Chung, Johnip Cua, Manny Fong, Greg Yu and former board trustee Miguel Tan. The gathering was also a reunion of past and present school administrators, including former school principal Jenny Huang Go (who was the principal during my time in Xavier), Norma Sandoval, Lulu Domingo and Robert Suntay (who was my Religion teacher), as well as former school director, Fr. Alberto Ampil, SJ.

During the lunch reception that capped the morning’s program, the school handed out plaques of appreciation to the individual benefactors of the new school and the first two alumni batches that donated to Xavier School Nuvali, the Class of ‘79 and the Class of ‘86 (my batch).

The day echoed our school motto Luceat Lux or “Let your light shine in Nuvali!”
