When was the last grand alumni held at BORBON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL?
Fourteen or fifteen years back perhaps. As we remember…it was held in 1997 when the first DECADIC ENCOUNTER was initiated by groups of active alumni from batch 1992-1993-1994-1995 and 1996.
It was organized in a manner that all batches share active participation in the grand celebration. Tables from each batch were put up and decorated in festive moods and as agreed from the organizing committee. Superb presentations received instant reward that very night— wala na lang ko ka-remember kong kinsa to nga batch ang nidaog.
Foods and snacks were sponsored by generous alumni coming from monetary contributions. All I can say that all attendees were more than willing to make that night memorable for them. Sounds & lights add glitter to the gathering and the disco afterwards was so exhausting, not to mention, for the oldies who attended that first ever encounter at school.
Those were few of the activities I remember from our ever-changing memory, “dili na jud ikalimod, nagkatiguwang na ta ani, mao nga tinuod gyud ang panultihon…ang kalimot walay GAHOM”.
To address calls from passionate alumni who wanted to have a GRAND ALUMNI CELEBRATION to happen again after long years that is why we are asking every graduate of BNHS to join the KRUSADA right here and right now.
We’re extending this plea to all GRADUATES OF BORBON NATIONAL HIGH SCHOOL bisan asang suok sa kalibutan man kamo gipadpad, amo kamong giagni sa paghatag sa inyong panahom ug ideya aron maumol ang tinguha sa uban nga magkapundok-pundok ang tanang ni-gradwar sa atong pinalanggang eskwelahan sa Borbon. For it’s time to come home again to our dear ALMA MATER.
Please share your ideas here so we can start organizing the grand alumni homecoming. Thank you very much.
