ERDAnians had a double treat on Friday, September 29, 2017. In the morning and the afternoon, team-building activities were held, and in the evening, there was the disco, Fusion 2017.
After the advisory period, the four teams: Blue, with coaches Mrs. Eden Baltazar and Mr. David Reyes; Red, with coaches Mr. Joel Sulit and Miss Chyryz Valiente; Yellow, with coaches Miss Hazelyn Verdejo and Mr. Noe Libradilla; and Green, with coaches Mrs. Michelle Testa and Mr. Ramon Christopher Ricafrente assembled along the corridors and then paraded from the main building to the basketball court. The teams are a mix of grade 11 and grade 12 students.
After the opening ceremony, the various games began in different venues on campus. These included volleyball, group march, team bucket, tug of war, solidarity tower, water balloon, dodgeball, adventure time, minute to win it, and basketball.
In the afternoon, the Mr. and Ms. Vocation 2017 was held at the Saint Ignatius of Loyola Hall. Each team had a pair of representatives, one male and one female. Mujahid Basiman (Grade 12 – St. Peter Faber) from the Yellow Team won as Mr. Vocation while Zandra Loraine Quisao (Grade 12 – St. Peter Faber) from the Blue Team was proclaimed Miss Vocation.
When evening came, the ERDAnians danced their hearts out in Fusion 2017 as their teachers fondly watched over them. By 9:30 p.m., the event ended, but the wonderful memories the students gained from this fun Friday will remain in their minds and hearts.
Mr. Mark Rivera, the Student Activities Program Coordinator, together with the ever-reliable and dedicated Student Body Organization (SBO) team led by its chairperson, Coleen Felix of Grade 11 – St. Dominic Savio deserve the full appreciation and admiration of the school community, most especially the students, for making all these possible.
