It was an occasion brimming with joy, pride, and a sense of accomplishment as students, teachers, and families came together to honor the dedication and hard work displayed throughout their transformative journey.

The ceremony took place in the Antipolo Cathedral, and it was also broadcast live on YouTube. It began with a Eucharistic Celebration led by Rev. Fr. John Paul Buenafe.

Fr. Buenafe spoke of the importance of remaining grounded, even in the face of accomplishments and accolades that may come their way. Drawing from his own life experiences, he shared anecdotes of renowned figures who had reached great heights but had also succumbed to the pitfalls of ego and pride.

“Sa bawat tagumpay, manatiling mapagpakumbaba. Manatili kang nagpapasalamat dahil ang taong nagsisimulang magmataas, sinisimulan na rin niya ang kanyang pagbagsak.”
Rev. Fr. John Paul Buenafe

After the Holy Mass concluded, Crishelle Ann Jornacion, president of the Junior High School Coordinating Team, formally opened the ceremony proper by giving an inspirational message to her fellow completers, reminiscing about their high school journey through the pandemic.

“There were various times that we panicked a lot and come close to giving up. Although we were unable to fully experience Junior High School in person, we were nevertheless happy to learn and explore it in a different manner.”

Rev. Fr. John Paul Buenafe and Mr. Jorge Pacleb led the presentation of certificates and medals. Respective advisers in Grade 10 called the names of their students.
