2012:  Quezon High 110th Anniversary



Quezon High 110 Foundation is being marked in 2012 aboard a cruise ship sailing Eastern Caribbean March 18 by a mini group of alumni and friends, in a fund- raising dinner dance in Toronto July 7th  and in a big celebration with parade and day long programs on October 2nd, 2012  in Lucena.  "Let her name stand forever, symbol bright of shining luster" so goes the Alma Mater song. Throw away that Mayan calendar.  It isn't doomsday.  It's party time !!!!

An adventure on a grand scale,  some Quezon High grads, families and friends sail March 18, 2012 to celebrate the 110th anniversary foundation of the school aboard Allure of the Seas, the biggest, brightest and most innovative cruiseship to date.  Broadway shows, line dance and outdoor excursions are on schedule for those interested in joining.  The year 2012 marks the 110th anniversary when The Thomasites, the US fleet of teachers who boarded a ship via USS Thomas to rehabilitate the Philippines settled in the country and ended up with the founding of the then Tayabas High School in 1902, the second oldest high school in the Philippines.
Allure of the Seas had its maiden voyage last Dec 5, 2010.  Eastern Caribbean route for 7 days starts from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida to Nassau, Bahamas; St. Thomas, Virgin Islands; St. Maarten, Netherland Antilles and back to Ft. Lauderdale .  Other activities include karaoke, aqua theater watching, ice games, stand-up comedy session and lots of shopping at ports of call. Allure has Central Park piazza, Royal Promenade, Aqua Theater, Pool and Sports Zone and many other facilities unrivalled by other ships for those interested to join.

Last August 19th, President Quezon day, the band paraded throughout Lucena with the new uniforms financed by the Toronto's Quezon High Alumni Association. From the old t-shirts they used to wear, to the new slick made-to-order blue and yellow uniforms and 5 pairs of leather boots, the 30 band members and majorettes marched their way to the beat of the drums and musical instruments donated by class 68th 40th reunion. The band is under the supervision of Christopher Joy Veluz, faculty member and band instructor.

Toronto Ballroom Dance Raises Funds for QNHS desks and classrooms

By Bal Yujuico 

Two seven-foot benches, two blackboards.  One with a hole in the middle.   Ten lucky girls occupy the benches squezzed side by side while the rest of the class sit on the concrete floor littered with some tetrapaks left over by the previous class.   Meanwhile, the literature teacher inside the class  had to speak in high decibels to beat the noise of students outside eager to occupy the same room for the next class.  click to read more

Typical classroom with no desks.
