About 400 alumni came for the 2nd XU Grade School Alumni Homecoming on October 25, held at the XUGS Covered Courts of the Macasandig campus.
Current and past faculty members also came to meet their former pupils. There were many photo opportunities and affectionate hugs among alumni and former teachers, and recall of memories among the alumni themselves.
The homecoming started with a Mass officiated by Fr Lino A Macatol II SJ of XUGS Class of 1997.
The program was highlighted by the welcome of XUGS Alumni Chapter president Dante M Verendia (XUGS '87), the message of current XUGS principal Samuel F Macagba, and guest speaker Jose Rupert Martin M Andanar (XUGS '88).
The alumni made their fellowship lively with lots of food, laughter and banter. Some groups even came in their alumni class T-shirt.∎
