I was reading through the posts of my contacts in Multiply, when I saw Kog’s “My Week So Far”. Since Kog is an alumni now teacher in Xavier High School, I was curious enough to take a look on how he has been doing “so far”; also, I knew that a lot of new stuff were added to the classrooms, and I just wanted to have a glimpse of what’s new.

Behold and be Amazed — I consider myself privileged to have studied from Xavier, and to have had a good Jesuit education. But I must emphasize that what they have now is like 5-star-hotel compared to our 3- or 4-star amenities before.

Before, we were situated in the Jesuits Residence Wing, where we had our wooden tables and chairs, and 2 air conditioning units. We were luckier back then; the batch after us were transfered to the high school building, where they all suffered/ endured the heat because they didn’t have air conditioning units. After that year, they reconstructed and did a face-lift to the fourth year classrooms. But now, they were successful in implementing the changes to all high school classrooms.

And here is our classroom, H4B, back then at the Jesuit Residence wing. Focus on the second photo — that’s our adviser, Simoneil Mendoza, using the computer with a tv screen inside a “wooden box.”
