Movie Screening of Beauty and the Beast
by Bubbles de Mesa
The Class of 1984, the first batch to graduate high school from Woodrose, held an exclusive screening of Beauty and the Beast at Power Plant Mall in Rockwell Center on March 19, 2017. The sold-out screening was part of a series of events planned by the Woodrose alumnae in celebration of the school’s Ruby Anniversary. Aside from the 1984 graduates, many more alumnae came with their families and friends to support the event.
The screening was sponsored by Meralco, as well as URC, which provided all the guests with various snacks including Griffin’s, Mintini Sweet Mint, Nissin Cup Noddles, Calbee, and Nova. URC also sponsored some games before the actual movie screening, the Nissin Cup Pyramid Game and Griffin’s Lucky Bear Game.The winners received gifts packs of Nissin Cup Creamy Searfood and Griffin’s cookies.
Over the next few months until the end of the year, the Woodrose alumnae will be holding events that would serve as an opportunity for alumnae to meet and reconnect with their batchmates as well as other graduates. These events will lead up to the Homecoming on November 18, 2017. We hope to see all of you in every event!
We begin the celebration of the 40th Anniversary of Woodrose on the month of the Holy Rosary, this October 2016, with Holy Mass and an offering of 40 roses in prayer and thanksgiving to our patroness, Our Lady of Woodrose.
