SPHS celebrates Freshman Day 2012
Friday, August 24th, 2012
Some 500 students gathered at the Angel Nuñez Auditorium this morning, Friday August 24th in welcoming the approximately 180 students that make up the new freshman class at the San Pedro High School (SPHS). The new students come from the various primary schools across the island and will now make the SPHS their home for the next four years.
The day is filled with interactive activities between all classes that started at 8AM until 1PM. The activities give the newcomers the opportunity to interact with and get to know the other members of their newly found family in fun ways. Activities for the day included games such as: musical chairs, goal kick, Fruit Loops relay, orange pass relay, mummy wrap, dress your baby, lime and spoon, pigtail bottle, pig and ring out, soda biscuit and whistle, and male and female arm-wrestling among many others.
The students were separated by their various classes. This year, the SPHS has a total of 17 classes from which six were formed by freshmen students at the high school. Adding to the excitement of the day is the fact that the winning class gets to take one day off during the first semester.
A group of energetic, excited and enthusiastic students had the chance to spend the entire day in friendly competitive activities. Snacks and drinks were on sale. The management, staff and upper students at the San Pedro High School take this opportunity to send a warm welcome to the new students that create the Form One classes at SPHS.
