GAD & Wellness Seminar:
Lola Corazon, Candaba, Pampanga
October 17-18.  The activity kicked off with excitement at 4:00am when everyone gathered at the school ground to wait for the departure at 5:00 am. Leaving 30 minutes after the exact departure, the team travelled with  faith in their heart that God will always be their driver in any journey. This was visible on their first stop at the San Guillermo Church, Pampanga  at 9:30 o’clock in the morning.
At around 10:30 am the team arrived at the venue – Lola Corazon leisure Farm. On this period, teachers were met by the facilitators and different activities were provided. The first activity was Cheer competition where the group was divided into  five teams- Red, Yellow, White and Blue. This was followed by hollahoop relay and sandbag shooting. Lunch was served at 1:oo pm. At two pm teachers were allowed to  relish the beauty of the place. The most exciting one was the zipline where everyone was thrilled, young or old, heavy or light.
At 6:00 video presentation on Safety and Disaster Management was presented. Tips on survival and and other team building activities were tackled. At 7: pm dinner was served. Moment after the dinner was, unspeakable, unbearable, heartbreaking, indescribable! Where everyone can recollect, a juxtaposition of who really you are.
Second day, September 18, 2015, 6:30 am began with an exciting dance party atmosphere full of latin and international music, designed to bring people together to sweat it on; teachers did sexy moves with the ZUMBA.After the Zumba water game competition was a bit given a twist due to heavy rains and stormy winds, yet a plunge in the water was a mixture of different laughters; bursting, screaming, giggling and guffaw… a complete release of a piled up stress.
An activity without an evaluation is not complete. So, at 10:30 am everyone gathered at the pavilion to assess the output of the two-day activity. Strengths and weaknesses were discussed. Activities were linked to real life situations and how these activities can teach us lessons to make us grow  better individuals and educators in particular. A sumptuous lunch was served after the evaluation and at exactly 12:00 noon, the participants headed for their home sweet home.
