From the Classroom to the Coastline

In what has become a cherished tradition at Eastbridge, the school administration treats its hardworking staff to a well-deserved respite as the academic year draws to a close. Usually dubbed the "Eastbridge Exposure Trip," this annual excursion offers an opportunity for teachers and support personnel to unwind, recharge, and create lasting memories before the summer classes begin. Far from being an ordinary getaway, the administration strives to make each year's trip unique and memorable. 

On a bright Monday morning, May 29, the entire Eastbridge management, along with teaching and support staff, eagerly embarked on their journey to San Juan Batangas. Excitement filled the air as they boarded three vehicles, bound for an overnight stay near the breathtaking white sand beach of Laiya. Along the way, the group made several strategic pit stops, not only for rest and refreshment but also to capture the magical moments through photographs. Such is the nature of our trips—memories immortalized in snapshots, cherished for years to come. The management took great care in planning the itinerary, ensuring that no formal activities were scheduled, granting everyone the freedom to relish the sheer pleasure of the occasion.

The chosen destination offered a multitude of delights to be savored. Among the amenities were a private indoor pool, catering to both the water enthusiasts and those seeking a relaxing dip. Even those unaccustomed to cycling were not left out, as the venue provided three-wheeled bicycles for beginners to enjoy unlimited rides. Picture a scene where colleagues gather in an outdoor sitting area, engaging in private conversations amidst laughter and camaraderie. For the musically inclined, a JBL-powered videoke room awaited, ready to echo with soulful melodies and joyful harmonies. Additionally, a well-equipped kitchen was at the group's disposal, allowing for the preparation of meals on-site and reducing overall expenses. Last but certainly not least, the pristine beach was just a short walk away, offering a serene escape from the demands of daily life.

Upon returning from this much-needed break, our evaluation revealed that the staff truly reveled in the unique atmosphere and the relaxed nature of the trip. We express our heartfelt gratitude to the Lord for watching over us and providing this incredible opportunity for enjoyment. We also thank one of our school families which gave a generous amount to cover a portion of the expenses.
