We are a group of alumni of our dear Alma Mater
organized to serve a venue for batch reunions
every once in a while. But the group eventually
evolved with a purpose; the reunions became
avenues of giving back from time to time. The
group had its first successful community
outreach last December 2009 at Calagdaan
Elementary School. Hence, the term Batch Nizo
– an epitome of “true men and women for
others.” WE ARE BATCH NIZO.
A momentum was sustained. It was followed
by giving free snacks to the students of
Cantilan National High School during the
National Achievement Test last March
• …then a Back-to-School Outreach activity
last May 2011. School supplies were
distributed to students of Isla Heneral
Integrated School, Cantilan National High
School – Consuelo Annex and some
pupils of Cantilan East Central Elem.
In line with the Silver Jubilarian’s outreach
advocacy this year, the Batch Nizo spirit
was rekindled. We wanted to give back
“Charity begins at home." We found out we have
batch mates who have not enough share of
blessings. Last September 20, 2015, we brought
them together at the Retreat House of the Poor
Clare Sisters in Palasao. Along with their
families, we said hello and reminisced the good
old days. We ate with them, laughed with them
and gave them groceries and gifts.
We are BATCH NIZO.
