Storytelling with fathers, virtual open mic take place in English Week
Maristas participated in various online activities that emphasized their creative and meaningful use of the English language in the school’s English Week celebration held last January 18 to 22, 2021.
Grade school students took part in various language and reading activities with the theme “Love, Enjoy, and Explore English in the New Normal.”
Activities held in Cluster 1 (Kinder to Grade 3) include a storytelling with the fathers, poster making, and virtual reading. Further, Cluster 2 (Grades 4 to 6) joined in events such as poem composition, dramatic monologue, and song composition/adaptation.
Students in the grade school levels also participated in varied online run of the school’s spelling bee, “Spellbound.”
Meanwhile, high school students checked into their mental well-being, in line with the theme “English Communication Quest (ECQ): Are You Okay?”
Activities participated by their students in the classes include the creation of one liner quotes for Grade 7, creating posters on mental health for Grade 10, and a data gathering about high school students’ mental health for Grade 12.
Then on January 29, the school live streamed its first virtual open mic event entitled, “Philautia: Rekindling Self-love through Poetry and Music.”
Originally scheduled last November, the celebration was postponed due to the prolonged class suspension of Typhoon Ulysses.
