These are the officers of LDHS Batch 78’s corps of lady cadets. We did our best to edit the photos so that you can help us identify each one of them.


Panunumpa ng mga nagsipagtapos

May nahalukay na naman kaming larawang kupas, kuha sa araw ng aming pagtatapos sa hayskul noong Marso 28, 1978. Dito’y makikita ang mga nagsipagtapos sa pagbasa ng kanilang panunumpang mamahalin ang paaralang pinagtapusan.

Mula sa kaliwa: Yoly Mañalac, Ana Marie Joaquin, Laarni Canicula, Rorie Quijano, at Ariel Dimacali. (Nanay ba ni George Hizon ang nasa siwang sa pagitan nina Rorie at Ariel?)

Narito naman ang teksto ng buong panunumpa:

Pangako sa samahan ng nagsipagtapos

Buong puso akong nangangako
na mamahalin ko ang aking paaralang pinagtapusan
Matapat kong isasagawa ang mga dakilang mithiin nito,
at sisikapin kong mabuhay nang marangal
upang magamit ko nang buong talino
ang aking natutuhan sa paglilingkod
sa Dakilang Lumikha,
sa aking bayan,
at sa kapwa tao.

Virtual campus tour

LDHS campus

For whatever reasons, most of us have never got the chance to revisit LDHS’s current campus, which in our time was just a wide expanse of open space.

Peps on YouTube

Eric has posted us on YouTube. He said he spent so many hours enjoying all our photos and decided to grab them and make this video presentation:

As background music, he used the song “That’s what friends are for”, the theme of our 1988 reunion in Matabungkay.

It’s a work in progress and will be updated every time Eric gets new materials from us. Thanks, Eric, for the effort.


Eric and Larry

Over the last two years or so, a small number of peps managed to hold just a couple of kitakits. The last gathering was in fact attended by only a handful: Eduardo Roberto, Red George Hizon, Catalino dela Cruz, Diosdado Dizon, Lauro Ramos, Rizaldy Espiritu, Roderick Macatangay, and Carlito Parungo.

So one question that kept cropping up during these drinking sessions was: “Nasaan na kaya sila?” Sila, of course, refers to the rest of the class who hadn’t let their presence felt in quite a while.
