TESDA Tarlac Joins TESDA III Sportsfest, Teambuilding
SUBIC, Zambales – TESDA Tarlac joins TESDANS from all over Region III in holding the 2017 Sportsfest cum Teambuilding at the Whiterock Beach Hotel and Water Park at Subic, Zambales on 23-25 March 2017.
This is an annual activity to introduce the new members of the family and reinforce esprit de corps through sports, group games and the much awaited socials night.
The first day of the activity saw the enthusiastic employees’ participate in badminton, Volleyball, and basketball with a twist.
Participants in each game are group not according to provinces, but randomly selected through, “Rock, Paper, Scissors,” winners against losers with plenty of substitutions to allow the majority of the participants to play.
The next day, the employees were treated to a Zumba number lead by the resort staff.
After the Zumba number, participants were grouped into ten pairs and challenged to play the word pair game, wherein each employee was only allowed to ask three questions per rotation to find their pair.
The next game is the survival scavenger game where a representative of the group is allowed to gather materials from a cache within the prescribe time, and then the materials gathered were arranged in the order of its ability to contribute to the survival of the group.
The last game is the packaging design for fragile objects, where each group is given identical sets of materials for three protective packaging designs, the poor eggs unknowingly volunteered to be the fragile objects, which were dropped from the zip line tower to test for effectiveness. There were survivors. TESDA design works!
The afternoon of the second day was spent exploring the facilities, amenities, and of course the water bodies in and around the resort.
The socials night was all about swearing in the newly hired employees by the TESDA Region III Director Atty. Andrew A. Bido, videoke singing fueled by that wonderful product of yeast fermentation, and the ubiquitous line dancing led by the TESDA Zambales Provincial Director Virginia B. Bondoc.
The activity ended in the lazy morning of the third day where employees wandered around visiting each other’s rooms saying their goodbyes and reaffirming the ties that bind.
