Stepping into a world of fantasies, freshmen from Xavier High School and Immaculate Conception Academy , experienced being mythical gods for a night in their acquaintance party held last December 18, 2004 from 1:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the High School Gymnasium, where they were encouraged to interact with one another through six different activities.
“First Impressions” started off the night and functioned as an icebreaker, as it allowed the freshmen to write their initial impressions regarding the other freshmen of the opposite sex in the same group on a piece of paper.
Further enlivening the mood of the freshmen, the “Cupid's Arrow”, a game that used the concept of spin-the-bottle, required freshmen to pair with each other in order to accomplish a specific task.
The “Hula-Hoop” game was a trial of self balance and rhythm, where the object of the game is to sustain the spinning hula-hoop around the waist for as long as one can hold.
An improved pass-the-message game, the “Echo” game provided more challenge to the freshmen than what they would normally think; alternately, the freshmen would have handicaps – being deaf, mute or blind.
Last, yet definitely not the least, the freshmen were asked to write down their final impressions on the same paper they wrote their first impressions on other freshmen – the title of which is “Last Impressions”.
Apart from the games, the dinner, set at the parking lot, had an Al Fresco mood, and the disco, held at the Multi-Purpose Center , where freshmen had the time to show their moves before the awarding ceremonies were held, provided the chance for the freshmen to interact more with each other.
Awards were given in the form of titles of mythological gods, which were given to Carlo Roman, “Zeus of the Night” and Stacey Hontiveros, “Hera of the Night”.
In the end, the four and a half month worth of preparations paid off – the acquaintance party was a success to most; the mythical fantasy indeed became a reality to everyone.
