July 6th 2015 is a special day for students of Gonzaga College. Since predawn, the students of XI and XII class who became the committee of orientation days for fresh students woke up and prepared themselves to go to school. The delight to welcome the fresh students who go to school in white and gray is the reason behind. The fresh students were not allowed to come together with their parents by their own vehicles. Many students came in to school by public transportation and some of them were walking. Therefore some committees were ready on some spots near the school to secure the activities.

Meanwhile 45 members of flag hoisting squad led by Alexander Timothi Simanjuntak were trained their marching since 04.45. There also the members of Wacana Bhakti Symphony Orchestra who prepare their instruments and scores after the morning holy mass. Thus the preparation and situation of the students and seminarians in the morning that considered holiday for another schools.

The flag ceremony is started since 07.00 and followed by all members of the civitas academics include students, teachers, and staffs. The headmaster, Father Leonardus E.B. Winandoko SJ., M.Ed. led the ceremony. He instructed the students to do 2 things, first to be delight and the second to be responsible. Those two things need to be accomplished because this year is the year of Conscience. It related to the theme of Jesuit Educators Conference in Spain 2014 that focused to the value of Conscience.
