November 8 was marked as one of Pines Academy’s special student gatherings to promote deeper interaction and to cap off another 2-week meaningful English learning especially done in the evening classes. The 8-part event made the students participate in games and find new connection among the audience members.
Guitar Class students proudly performed their impeccable rendition of Matisyahu’s “One Day” and The Beatle’s “Let it be”; they call their group as Guitar Heroes. While everybody couldn’t get enough of the first performance, Ivory who is known as the batch ballerina, led a classical ballet warm-up.The musical event switch back to academic mode through the Evening Study Program Team’s informative lecture on Pines Students’ 8 Common Grammatical Errors which made them aware and would hopefully lead them to becoming better ESL communicators and learners.

The crowd’s energy leaned towards the interesting game called “Bring Me” wherein they raced in bringing persons and specific items like red phone. The race was so tough that they had to find and bring in front the most handsome man, cutest Pines couple, tallest guy from the audience, man with the longest lashes, 5 students from different countries and 3 students who are bound to study at Chapis Advanced Campus. Everybody was in their element and were very eager to receive goodies from the organizers. This is Pines’ fair share of Friday fun.
After the high intensity game “Bring Me”, students have proven once again their confidence in showcasing their talents. James Lee reminded everyone that love should be certainly felt that night while serenading the crowd with the song “Can You Feel the Love Tonight”. This is his third time to perform for the evening gathering. Mongolian student Happy gave her all singing “Old Town Road” with Teacher Chrismark.
