They day’s activities started off with lunch for the Night High Scholars and teachers at Mang Inasal in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.
After lunch, it was off to Enchanted Kingdom, where the Night High Scholars and teachers participated in a special contest organized by the staff of Ariva.
The 25 Night High Scholars and teachers were divided into 3 groups and had to complete different tasks requiring them to run around and explore the different rides at Enchanted Kingdom. The first group to successfully complete all the assigned tasks wins a special prize.
The 3 groups also had a cheering contest, judged by members of Ariva, and ABC Foundation. Fabulous prizes were also given to the group with the best cheer.
After the group contests, the Night High Scholars and teachers were given extra time to relax and explore the amusement park on their own, and to go on all the different rides.
After an exhausting day running around Enchanted Kingdom, the Night High Scholars and teachers were ready for dinner, and once again, they were treated to Mang Inasal for delicious barbecued pork and chicken.
During dinner, the Night High Scholars and teachers of Siena, San Jose del Monte, took the opportunity to thank their sponsors, Ariva, for supporting them through Night High School, and for the very special Christmas party at Enchanted Kingdom. The 25 Ariva Night High Scholars performed a special song they had prepared, and gave Ariva a big thank you card, as a token of their gratitude. Ms. Lani Julia, Night High advisor and coordinator at Siena College, San Jose del Monte also said a few words on behalf of teachers and administrators of Siena College, San Jose del Monte, Bulacan.
Mr. JM Matienzo and members of Ariva were touched by the token of gratitude they received from their 25 Night High Scholars. The members of Ariva presented the scholars with gift bags filled with goodies, and presented the winners of the group contest, as well as the cheering competition.
After the long and tiring, but wonderful day, the 25 Night High Scholars and teachers were finally ready for the long ride back to San Jose del Monte, Bulacan. This being their last year of Night High School, the 25 Night High could not have asked for a better way to spend it than with their sponsor for the last 5 years, Ariva!
We would like to thank Mr. JM Matienzo, and Ariva Seminar and Conventions Organizers for treating their Night High Scholars, teachers and members of ABC Foundation to a fun-filled day at Enchanted Kingdom, and for sponsoring their Night High Scholars for the past 5 years. Your generosity has been a tremendous help to ABC Foundation and to your Night High Scholars, whose lives you have touched.
