8 October 2015 marked the third death anniversary of Fr. Ismael Zuloaga, S.J. He is the longest-serving School President (Director, 1965-1985) and he spent his twilight years at Xavier School.
As a preliminary effort to honor his great contributions to Xavier School, the Board of Trustees has approved a Special Resolution to name the fourth floor of the intermediate building (the Grade 8 wing of the past few school years) as Zuloaga Hall. The floor has three big multiple-purpose rooms (the size of three classrooms each) for the use of the community.
A marker plaque was installed on the fourth-floor landing near the MPC building. It was blessed after the usual morning Mass last 8 October 2015 celebrated by Fr. Guy Guibelondo, S.J.
As one community, let us honor the memory of the Jesuit credited with formulating the school’s vision of the Xaverian: men fully alive, endowed with a passion for justice and the skills for development.
