CSIL Cross-Over Ceremony


On Thursday, 20th of December 2018, Colégio Santo Inacio de Loiola (CSIL) celebrates the cross-over ceremony of 112 year-9 students crossing over to year-10. The ceremony started with a thanksgiving mass to celebrate the success of the junior high students over the past three years and to thank God for all the blessings that they have received. This is a celebration for the students to ask for God’s Blessings before they begin their Senior High School next year and to give them courage to tackle the next phase of their journey.

This momentous ceremony gave the opportunity for the students to extend a special welcome to their principal, priests, staff, parents, family, and friends who were present in the celebration. The students were engulfed in a joyful moment seeing the presence of all the people that have stood with them and guided them during their years at CSIL Junior High. This is the time for them to appreciate the efforts and contribution of all these people for their success today and in the future.
