Project Title and Theme
Friendship Games: Unang Sabak sa Tag-araw
Summer of Fun and Fruitful Activities
The 2009 Friendship Games: Unang Sabak sa Tag-araw, commits itself for public and youth development, growth and wellness. This is a month-long event composed of different activities that will measure the capability of youth in different areas.
These areas are: Physical Area – which measures ones capability of strength and power; social – which tests the capability of socializing and interpersonal relationship; mental and psychological – which measures the ability to adapt to situation and think rapidly of solutions; cultural – this will test and shows the talents of the participants as they face unexpected challenges.
Participants will be grouped into three (3) – red team, green team and blue team who will compete for the title, Mga Hari ng Laban. In each team, one Sk councilor will serve as their team coach. The organization of each team was; Leader – the general facilitator of the team; secretary – the team encoder; document keeper – responsible for keeping the teams important documents and files; flag bearer – the contact of the organizers and responsible for the team spirit and emblem; and the attendance officer – the person in-charge for checking the team members and securing their safety.
Background and Rationale
This is also to start new trends in executing SK Projects wherein it is a jam-packed activity under one event. It is also in connection that summer is the only time for youths to enjoy life, without the stressful home works, projects, paper works, exams, quizzes, recitations and others of the same kind. This event will serve as the spice of their vacation with activities that are worthy and fruitful. The catalyst of their busy school life.
As what the old Chinese saying, “to be great in one is not enough, but rather to develop and conquer the others.” That’s it, this program envisions that the youth will improve the four areas namely; physical, social, mental and cultural capability through the challenges and activities that will be conducted.
This is also the time to rest from the addictive computer games, the lousy friendster and facebook, senseless chitchat, expensive text messaging and so much attachment to others of the same kind. This will let them realize that it is more fun to go back with the old ways. The battle of strategy to outburst others.
This also aims to gather the youth of Lumbac and develop the spirit of teamwork, friendship and discipline.
As they say, no man alone is in an island. This will teach them that, to work as a group is better than to do things alone. They will soon realize that everyone has a worth and nothing is made for nothing. This will show them the perspective of wholeness and oneness. We will remove the boundaries of separations and indifferences among the youth, but rather, we will group them as one.
This will widen their vision of sportsmanship and hard work. They will soon realize that things come and go as it could, but the sweetest achievements are gain through hard work.
When this happen, I can say that this project is beyond success and a great fulfillment it will bring us.
