Christ the King College held its Acquaintance Party last August 4, 2018 at CKC Ground and Mother Ignacia Gymnasium with the theme “Pista sa Nayon.” The main purpose of the event was to develop friendship and unity among the old and new members of the CKC family.
The day long celebration started with a team building exercise where traditional Filipino games like Patintero, Sack Race, and Triathlone games which include the Bao Race, Tiyakad, Kaliring, Luksong Tinik, Lapitin and Slipper Game that were played in the morning. Students from 1st year to 4th year were gathered together and divided into teams. A small parade opened the main program. The students were encouraged to wear formal Filipino costumes such as Barong Tagalog for males and Filipiniana for females. An invocation was given followed by the singing of the National Anthem and Gingoog Hymn. Jesel Mercado, the KSO senate president, led the Bayanihan ritual, June Anthony Guillena, KSO president, gave the welcome address, and an inspirational message by S. Ma. Felicisima L. Cruz, RVM was given right after. To embed the Filipino spirit into the event, different courses are presented by their best contenders competed during the Kundiman and folk dance competition.
