The month of December has brought a lot of excitement for ICI students as it marked the start of a well-deserved vacation for them. And to formally close the academic year, ICI-Iligan celebrated its very own Christmas Party with the theme: “Paskong Pinoy” last December 18, 2012 at MSU-IIT Amphitheater from 3 pm to 10 pm.
Like any other grand event, a program was especially made for it. The ICI Music Guild performed an Invocation song, starting the event formally. Thereafter, the Academic Head Mr. Jefferson Obial gave his opening remarks and welcomed everyone with a smile all while sharing his thoughts about the party. After his message, a game was facilitated with the help of ICI-Iligan’s Student Body Organization (SBO). Students joined each game with much enthusiasm. The winners received cash prizes and goodies.
Then, the Institute President Mr. Ladislao Tabanao Jr. shared his plans for the upcoming ICI course which tackle game development. He explained how innovative and exciting the new course is as well as the kind of jobs it offers.
At 6 pm everyone enjoyed a delicious meal for dinner prepared by the HRM and Culinary Arts Department. After a while, students witnessed a production number from the ICI-Iligan Faculty and Staff members. They showed their fun side by dancing to the beats of 80’s musical film “Footloose”, Spice Girls’ “Wannabe” and even Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance”. Students excitedly rushed near the stage to see their favorite instructors up close. After the “entertaining” production number, a Christmas Caroling Contest followed. Then, the Grand Raffle and Announcement of Winners were conducted. Random students as well as ICI employees won great prizes. A few minutes later, everyone began to gather around the center to dance with their friends during the Disco part of the event.
The ICI-Iligan Christmas Party 2012 proved to be one great event as everyone had a really good time.
