Caritas Christi urget nos!

With its goal to foster camaraderie among its employees, SPUP culminated the 2017-2018 Pre-Opening Activities through a Team Building Activity on August 25-26, 2017. SPUP Sisters and employees travelled to Kangaroo Beach Resort, Gonzaga, Cagayan, where the recreational activities were held.
The program included reflective activities such as Perfect Square, which aimed to serve as orientation to leadership and to strengthen trust among the employees; the Problem Family Tree, which focused on having good disposition despite the challenges; and What’s On Your Desk, a slogan-making activity bearing the SPUP standards for the next school year.
The event also featured a variety show, which was participated in by five teams: Team Blackbuster; Team Bluepers; The Basic Education Unit; Team SITE/SBAHM/SNAHS and Team Staff II. The teams were recognized with the following awards: Best Values Integration for Team Blackbuster, Most Entertaining for Team Bluepers, Most Creative for the Basic Education Unit; Most Enthusiastic for Team Staff II; and, Most Ecstatic for Team SITE/SBAHM/SNAHS.
Moreover, six pairs also competed for the first-ever “Search for Mr. and Ms. Q and A: SPUP Edition.” Laughter filled the hall as each contestant displayed their wit and exchanged funny moments with the hosts of the program, Mr. Cherson Bariuan and Mr. Chester Karl Manuel.
Mr. Angelo Bautista (BEU) and Ms. Margarita Florentino (Team Bluepers) were declared winners. Joining them were: Mr. Darwin Jake Felina (Team Blackbusters) and Ms. Jane Tecson (Team Staff II) as First Runners Up; and, Mr. John Rovy Lucena (Team Staff I) and Engr. Nova Domingo (Team SITE/SBAHM/SNAHS) as Second Runners Up.
Mr. Perico Guiyab, SPUP Zumba Instructor, started the second day with a zumba session. It was followed by a leisure time for the employees. It ended with a Thanksgiving Mass celebrated bu Fr. Dom Resureccion, OFM, Parish Priest of Sta. Teresita, Cagayan.
The Team Building Activity was facilitated by Mrs. Mischelle Solito, Mr. Jomar Casil, Mr. Robert Fugaban, Mr. Michael Fugaban, Mr. Mark Udaundo, and Mr. Jericson Bulauan, BEU Faculty Members.
