Don Bosco Manda87 - The Gathering
UPDATES 01/30/2009:

An excerpt from the group email of Fr. Chito Dimaranan — Batch 87's former H.S. Principal:
"...I also would like to inform you that I am happy to note you are all excitedly preparing for the big day come 2012. The target is no doubt big, but by no means unattainable. Bright ideas and suggestions keep on coming, as valid and useful as the ones I heard you speak about during the homecoming. I trust that the leadership of Norman, and the cooperation of all of you will pay off handsomely in God's own good time. The recent suggestions from Trudie are inspired and, seem to me all realizable. I pledge to support you in every way possible within my capacity as your former Principal, now wanting to be considered as a friend and a brother among you. My watchword for you is: AIM HIGH; AIM NOBLE; & AIM RIGHT (FORZA ALL THE WAY TO 2012!)

For today, I wish you all a Happy Feastday of our common Father and Teacher, St. John Bosco!

Kalakbay at Katoto!
Fr. Chito"
We are all anticipating the big day of 2012! It is a time when everyone from this '87 Grad Class gets the opportunity to come back where it all started from and recharge anew! I myself can't wait to go back HOME and catch up with old friends. The above 'The Gathering' graphic is truly inspired and designed by our fellow batchmate Jonathan Bendebel.

For Bosconians belonging to the Don Bosco Technical College High School Class 1987, there is an email service group hosted by Yahoo called 'buskohs87'. So if you fit the bill and want in, point your browser to or send email to the moderator (Mr. Rex Mabunga) at (sorry 'bout the cryptic writing, trying to avert spam 'bots from flooding the list).



From the countries of the West, To the eastern skies so bright, From the hills and to the seas. From the line of light and sun, To the pools of ice and snow, From on high and earth below;

All the world resounds one name...
It is Don Bosco's name that charms,
Heavens bright and thisour land.
'Tis Don Bosco's name so grand,
That enchants all men and names.

Thy serene and smiling face, On the sad and sorrowing souls, Peace bestows, the heart consoles, Heals all troubles, griefs and pains. To the youth's unwary hearts, Thou art sure and constant guide. To the wrecked injurious tide, Thou art savior, thou art hope.

Hail Don Bosco, Father dear, Hear the song we sing to thee. Let us all thy children be, Guard us though our life, let us all thy children be!


Saint John Bosco, our loving father, Now we lift to thee our voices. As we gather around thine altar Far and wide the world rejoices.

O Don Bosco, we're thy dearest Who's protection are imploring, For in heaven thou remainest, An apostle 'mid thee adoring.

Refrain: Don Bosco, thy children On many a shore Shall love and revere thee Till time be no more.

Don Bosco, thy children On many a shore Shall love and revere thee Till time be no more.
