Social Action and Lady Baden Powell Clubs: Overnight Planning and Team Building

Last August 1 and 2, 2014, the Social Action Club and the Lady Baden Powell Club had an overnight planning and team building activity at AdDU Grade School.  As Social Action Club members, it was quite a different experience having an overnight activity with another club.  Having new friends and socializing with them was fun.  We pitched our tents together and even shared dinner.  During the team building activity, we played the "boat is sinking".  In the next activity, each group was tasked to construct a tower made of straws held together by tape.  Even though we don't know each other that much, we still worked together as a team.

Grade School Intramurals Kicks Off

August 1, 2014 was the official kick-off for the GS Intramurals 2014.  Grade 3-6 pupils participated in the event. The Dance Club and the PEP squad gave a wonderful performance to add color and vibe to the opening program.  Aside from the traditional torch lighting which featured selected pupils from the different events and the grade level heads of Grade 3-6, one highlight was the unveiling of the grade level moniker.  Grade 3 classes were the Pioneers as their sections were the pioneers in our quest for sovereignty.
