INSET 2019

The yearly semesterly break is an important time not just for students but for teachers. More than just giving them some time off to relax from the stress of the previous quarters, it is also an opportunity to build more meaningful relationships with their co-workers during the annual In-Service Training (INSET). This year’s INSET happened at Crystal Beach, Zambales with the teachers grouped into three different teams.

Despite having a bit of rain in Manila, the weather was favorable during the three days of the trip. Day one began with lunch at Subic and pictures by the bay. After checking in at the resort, the teachers reassembled for the first activity where they were tasked to create a synchronized swimming routine—on land. This was followed by a quick photo shoot where each team had to arrange themselves and pose like models in a surfing ad given only a few seconds.

Day two had the teachers putting on their best summer attire and posing for more photos while making use of the beach’s natural sights. Pictures ranged from idyllic holiday scenes to bold and daring setups. For their final performance, each team prepared a live music video skit to be performed against the backdrop of great OPM hits by Aegis (“Luha”), Rivermaya (“Hinahanap Hanap Kita”), and Eraserheads (“Ang Huling El Bimbo”). Day three came with some last-minute beach activities and lunch at one of Subic’s best kare-kare restaurants before heading home.
