New Wave Era - Our Dark Ages and Renaissance

This was the time when IBM started making personal computers. The first model was the IBM PC, released in August, 1981. Remember the earlier versions of computer applications like Lotus 1-2-3, WordStar, WordPerfect 4.1, and Microsoft Word 1.0 for the Apple Macintosh both released in 1985?

Our most unforgettable days came to pass... But the experiences we had during those years will be kept in our minds forever. As we left our beloved Alma Mater, we were faced with challenges and complexities but with the strong foundation, we're more than ready to confront the future ahead of us.




CLASS HISTORY
(From the tattered pages of the Rizalians)
It was 1981 when we first stepped upon this great school. We were really a bunch of fresh and innocent elementary graduates who just had our first taste of high school life. We were very young and care-free. At a very young age , we begun to add feathers to our caps by capturing several positions in clubs and organizations.


Our batch stunned everyone from the start when the people viewed us with awe, in our wonderful performance in the Book Presentation entitled "Panibagong Buhay". We grabbed first place then, outwitting the sophomore, junior and senior groups.


The first days of our sophomore life proved that we had not lost the burning fervor we established where we were in our first year. Our inspiration heightened when we captured first place in the Division Science Fair beating students from other schools in Quezon City. Our Project "Oil from Banana Leaves". We also topped the Speech Fest with our piece, "Tulad ng Molave" and when we pocketed first place in the Christmas Carol Singing Contest.


Then, we turned into jolly juniors. We were good journalists and homemakers. We won in Essay Writing Contest in the Division Press Conference making one of our classmates the Essay Writer of the year. We also grabbed the top position in the Local and District Smocking Contest.


And came our last year, we were no longer children and were really fine young men and women starting to prepare for the long journey - College. The final pages of our historyhave been turned the days... when we experienced to defend ourselves against obstacles and struggles... with thw bruises and wounds we acquired from the hindering hurdles in our track, we bravely faced these challenges with hope and faith in our hearts.


Our batch was truly a group of good leaders. The seniors banged the ears of other students when the judges announced the Best Actress and Best Actor belonged to our group in the magnificent portrayal of "Summer Solstice."

Science wizards were born to this batch. There were also good historians with precised minds among the seniors. We had a straight win in the Choral Interpretation Contest with one piece,
"I Am Proud To Be A Filipino."












"Time is the only force that made us leave our Alma Mater. The memories of our stay are left behind."








SPECIAL MEMORIES

"You will always be a special part of me.
You will always be a special memory.
I'll always cherish wonderful moments
you have given me.
You are in my heart wherever I may be."







We have our own roads to travel on...
Our triumphs are
the souls of our identities.
