How to execute a successful Acque? YOUTH start planning early.

The Acquaintance Party (Acque) of batches 2022 and 2023 was held last Monday, October 23, 2017, at the UPIS 7-12 Gymnasium.

This annual event is organized by the Sophomore's Association (SoA) and Freshman Association (FA) to establish camaraderie between their batches and to officially welcome the Grade 7 students to high school.

This year’s “Youth” theme was inspired by the freshmen’s chance to bid farewell to their younger selves.

“’Yun na po yung ‘last children’s party’ nila since nasa high school na po sila [tapos] hindi na po sila mga ‘kids’” said Roczanne Dela Cruz, Sophomore Association (SoA) President.

The highlight of the event was a surprise formal dance in which the freshmen were paired with sophomores. There was also a question and answer portion wherein the freshmen asked for the sophomores’ advices regarding high school.

Other games such as relays were also held. In total, there were 195 attendees in the event. //by Nica Desierto
