ESS celebrates Vision-Mission and School Fair Days
ESS-SOUTH — The Vision-Mission Day and School Fair were consecutively held online last February 23-24, 2022. The two-day event was filled with non-academic activities led by ESS-South’s Faculty, Houses, Center for Student Well-being (CSWB), and Supreme Student Council (SSC).
“Enlivening SetonYan Spirit: Sharing Our Hearts and Soul” was the theme used during the Vision-Mission Day. The event started with a Virtual Mass in the morning, and it was followed by the National Calisthenics dance exercise.
The CSWB also sponsored a short-film viewing for the Junior High School (JHS) and Senior High School (SHS) divisions. After that, a friendly batch competition occurred among Setonians who played Family Feud, Escape Room, and Quiz Show.
Aside from playing games, a Pep Talk, Vocation Talk, and Symposium were simultaneously held for the learners of Grades 10-12. These events were followed by an Online Art Quiz in the afternoon.
The Vision-Mission Day ended with the Students Transition Empowerment Program for the Grade 10 parents in preparation for their transition as incoming SHS parents.
“Phantasmagoria: Dare to Dream” was the theme for School Fair 2022. The second day kicked off with a Morning Prayer and the National Calisthenics dance exercise.
After a short break, Setonians played in various House-sponsored activities as part of an inter-House competition. The House of Saint John XXIII emerged as the winner with a total of 273 participants who played in their sponsored activities.
In the afternoon, a Book Film Adaptation for the JHS and SHS students was conducted by the librarians from the Information and Literacy Unit.
The School Fair ended with The Amazing Race: Escape 2 Fantasy, which was organized by the SSC for the seven houses. Various games were played, and the house that finished first won the race.
The House of St. Paul was crowned as the winner of the race, followed by the Houses of San Pedro Calungsod and San Lorenzo Ruiz respectively.
