Schola de Vita recently held their first Face-to-Face event since the pandemic lockdown at Robinson’s Mall in Las Pinas, Manila. The event was a huge success; with preschool and lower level students participating in a Character Day, while higher level students ran different thematic booths across the mall. The day was all about how each member of the school community is important and has a personal role to play in building a peaceful and inclusive community. It was a great opportunity for parents and kids to learn more about the importance of peace, while also having a whole lot of fun!
Here are some highlights from the event.
One of the main highlights of the event was Character Day, where preschool and lower grade level students wore costumes representing different characters who exemplify peace and positivity. It was a great opportunity for kids to learn more about different ways to be peaceful and kind, while also being able to express themselves through their costume choice. Some of the popular costumes on Character Day included the Avengers, Wonder Woman, Spiderman, and our very own Darna among others. There was a special dance presentation which showcased the talents of our students.
Another highlight of the event was the different thematic booths that were set up by higher level students across the mall. The booths were all about different aspects of peace and included games, Treats, and learning opportunities for kids of all ages. Parents and kids alike loved being able to learn more about peace while also enjoying some delicious treats!
