To end the year, Fr. Pierre Tritz Institute – ERDA Tech held on Friday, December 22 the Holiday Shindig 2017 which was spearheaded by the Student Body Organization (SBO) under the moderatorship of Mr. Mark Rivera, Student Activities Program Coordinator.

The day began with an institutional mass officiated by Fr. Richard Babao, parish priest of the Ina ng Laging Saklolo Parish in Punta, Sta. Ana where many ERDAnians reside.

It was followed by a program at the St. Ignatius of Loyola Hall wherein the grade 11 classes gave performances and hosted games for the students, faculty, and staff.

By late morning, everyone was having lunch courtesy of each grade 11 class. The school also provided spaghetti and C2 juice for everybody.

Awards were given to the winning teams and classes in the games and in the classroom decoration contest. In the latter activity, Grade 11 – St. Lorenzo Ruiz under Miss Hazelyn Verdejo won first place, Grade 11 – St. Pedro Calungsod under Mrs. Eden Baltazar got second place, and Grade 11 – St. Dominic Savio under Mr. Pierce Gallego garnered third place.

Exhilarated and looking forward to the final stretch of school year 2017-2018, the members of the school community bade goodbye to one another for a much-needed and well-earned two-week break.
