Centralian Encounters in New Zealand

Some call it ‘pocket reunions’ or you may call it a visit. Whatever, the fact is Centralians are meeting and gathering in New Zealand.

We know there are Centralians in Wellington, Oamaru, Dunedin, Christchurch and other places of New Zealand.

We could assume they also find time to meet and fellowship and recall their lives as students of CPU.

Here are some of the Centralian encounters in 2013.

Centralians in Oamaru and Timaru

On 1 December 2013, joining the fellowship of fellow Ilonggos in Oamaru and Timaru are Centralians: Marilyn Cox, Helen Grace Bayot Banzuelo, Jonan and Jewel Castillon.

Centralians in Auckland

Some Centralians living in Auckland, their spouses and children gathered at Joe and Leah Soliva’s house on 28 December 2013.

The Quimbas (Boyet and Sharon), Sanglaps (Nathan and Phoebe) and Castillons (Jonan, Jewel and Jadyn) were there.

Taking time out for life with the Jarbadans

On 29-31 December 2013, the Castillons took time out for life with the Jarbadans who are living in Tauranga. From Auckland, they drove 2.5 hours to reach the place

Tauranga is a progressive city in the Bay of Plenty region of North Island, New Zealand.

Centralian encounter at Hamilton

During their visit to Hamilton, the Castillons and Jarbadans took time to meet with Gene and Marj Anotado and Joy Lam.

Hamilton is the main city of the Waikato Region in the North Island of New Zealand. It’s a 1.5 hour-drive from Tauranga.

The meetings are surely memorable moments for all and they’re hoping to have another chance to see each other.

Based on the Aotearoa Centralians FB page, there are 44 alumni living in New Zealand.

Let us hope that Centralians in New Zealand will have a big gathering in the near future.
