We recently joined one local university who is having their University Week to highlight and to showcase the various talents of their students in sports, dancing, singing, and academics. This can be a good avenue to share the students' talents and to boost their confidence and to widen their social networks too.
My own school employer shall hold our College Days next week where students shall be playing various kids' games including yo yos among others. The week shall be complemented with some skill competition with other schools in Mindanao. So, I bet, next week shall be one big competition week for students and schools in general.
We, the professors, can only be happier because the break shall mean no classes and just one week of leisure time.
