As a way to establish solidarity and camaraderie among high school learners, two acquaintance parties were attended by the Junior and Senior Phoenixes with the theme “Ang Pagbabalik: Coming Home of the Red Phoenixes” and “Barbiecore: SHS Welcome Party!” respectively last August 2, 2023 at the Ledesco Campus.
The Senior Phoenixes unleashed their inner Barbie and Ken as they showed off their fashionista side while taking inspiration from the outfits worn by characters in the Barbie movie.
Meanwhile, the Junior Phoenixes strutted around the covered court dressed in their retro and classic outfits while rocking the timeless fashion pieces of a ‘90s Batang Pinoy.
The Junior High School (JHS) and Senior High School (SHS) Student
Councils (SC) prepared different activities, games, and contests which were participated by all learners.
Filipino games popularized during the ‘90s such as Trip to Jerusalem, Longest Line, and Pasa-Pasahay Buko were played by the learners and teachers of each JHS curriculum filling the venue with excitement and cheer.
The SHS SC also spearheaded a costume-making contest where each team sent two representatives to dress up like Barbie and Ken using the recyclable materials provided by the committee.
Judges observed learners during the event as various awards were given to the trendy and stylish attendees
such as the Fashionista Award for learners and teachers, Mr. and Ms. Head Turner, Mr. and Ms. Confidence, and Mr. and Ms. ‘90s. The Best Recyclable Outfit was also awarded to SHS learners during the costume-making contest.
“I experienced the warmth and lively spirits of my fellow Junior High School phoenixes. I am proud that everyone managed to pull through and enjoyed our event,” said Prince David Sia, JHS SC president.
Both acquaintance parties concluded with a food sharing activity which strengthened the camaraderie among old learners and welcomed the new learners to a new school year.
