Last February 26, 2010, the second year students of the high school unit had their Afro- Asian Festival at the Sr. Ehrentrudis Hall.  This annual activity is part of a major academic integration program which aims to provide students a venue to apply the skills learned inside the classroom and develop appreciation for the culture of Afro Asian countries.  The countries presented in the Festival and their respective sections were Indonesia for 2 Hope, Thailand for Year II-Compassion, Korea for Year II-Simplicity, Japan for Year II-Love, China for Year II-Ora, Africa for Year II-Acceptance and India for Year II-Responsibility.  Students performed the music and dances of these countries during the Festival day celebration which was highlighted by the traditional national costumes worn by the sophomores for their assigned countries.

Other than the showcase of culture through music and dances, the students also researched on their respective countries’ geographical, historical, political background, as well as their environmental concerns and issues.  All these were compiled in a scrap book and presented in their AVP, which was shown right before their performance.
