LDHS reunions are taking place not only in the Philippines but also in other parts of the world. Fellow alumni in the United States have linked up with each other and are now regularly holding activities. Last July 19 Canada-based graduates from different batches also had a get-together, a picnic held at the Petticoat Conservation Park in Ontario.
Batch 78’s Malu Ortiz and Josephine Urbiztondo (IV-3) were there to join Leopoldo dela Vega (Batch ’77), Mario Garcia (Batch ’79), Malou dela Vega Guinto (Batch ’80), Ronald dela Cruz (Batch ’80), Roel Laurio (Batch ’82) and former Pilipino teacher Ms. Salome Tamayo.
“It was a day of nostalgia, laughter,” Malu told us in her email. “We were just like children, reminiscing our school and childhood days in LDHS and Tondo.”
Unfortunately, Mario Mercado was not able to make it to the event because of a prior commitment. Malu said she and Mario are trying to set an appointment with Ma’am Salome for another date.
“This is just the beginning,” Malu said, as more activities are being lined up for all LDHS alumni in Canada.
