The School Spirit week, a High School Student Council-sponsored event was held from July 26 to July 30, 2004. Its chief aims are to recapture and evoke pride for the school among students. Various activities, which were in accordance to the themes for each day, were set by the different organizations of the High School Unit namely Tinig, Project Earth, Pep Squad, Sports Club, Art and Crafts Club, and Creative Writer’s Guild integrated in this celebration. Kampil, Gabriela, Dance Club, Kapatid Music Ministry, Curtain Call, Glee Club, and Computer Club participated also. Most of all, the High School Faculty dance Troupe also gave their support for the School Spirit Week and Return to 1980s Day celebration. With this program, we specifically intended to fulfill the given objectives which are also a part of the objectives of the High School Student Council for this school year.
During the first day, the Student Council formally opened the School Spirit Week. In addition, an environmental awareness campaign was launched as well as the “School Colors Day”. A sabayang pagbigkas and a song were prepared to inform students of the environmental situation we have in the country and in school. With this activity, the Student Council and the environmentally concerned clubs wished to promote and improve cleanliness in our surroundings. Moreover, a School Colors Parade or parade of athletes as well as a cheer dance presentation were prepared to get high school Scholasticans geared for the fast approaching WNCAA. The other objective of these activities is to further encourage the students to support our athletes and cheerleaders in other competitions. The students, faculty, as well as the administrators were present in this opening.
Last Thursday, as continuation of the School Spirit Week, the Arts and Literature was honored through an exhibit which was opened with another display which was the “Return to 1980s Exhibit”, a commemoration for the country, the women, and the High School Scholastican Community of that decade. Paintings, drawings, poems, articles, and photographs were put up for the unit to see. The paintings and literary works all expressed the “Scholastican Spirit” as perceived by the artists. Articles and photographs of the socio-political situation of the country, of famous women, and condition of the unit were also arranged to give Scholasticans an idea of what it might have been like twenty years ago.
In relation to the second theme of the week, the fourth day of the School Spirit Week served as a day of the Performing Arts where a mini show was put up for the community. Its purpose is to expose students to more forms of arts and to showcase the creativity of the students. It also intended to gather more support for outside performances and competitions. A dance number and song presentations were organized by the Dance Club and Kapatid Music Ministry. This mini program was held that lunch time in the school grounds.
