Loyola Academy
Class of '80
The year 2005 marks the 25th year of our graduation from our beloved Loyola Academy and also marks the day when we each went on our own path with the burning wish to realize our dreams. After 25 years I know that lots of dreams must have come true and some have not. For those who finally realized their dreams and even surpassed them, my congratulations and for those who are still out there pulling all their strings and using all their lifelines to get to where they want to be, the best of luck!
Dear 1980 graduates of Loyola Academy,
Before we all get too old to share our experiences, I would like to suggest that we get together and hold a Class Reunion in the year 2005.
I will be going back home to the Philippines (with my family) in November 2005 and will stay until the 1st week of January 2006 and hopefully, others might do the same, so if you’d like to, we can hold our class reunion around this time.
Vivian Balaong Duran (Canada), Villa Adamas Zipp (Europe), Adelina Acong (Hongkong) and myself (Europe) will be your reunion co-ordinators abroad. We would however need some of you at home (Philippines) to co-ordinate this reunion and to communicate with us. If any one of you is interested please feel free to email me and I will communicate my address and phone number to you.
Find the batch list* below and… Come and join in!
On behalf of Class of 1980,
