KHS @ 78

Posted by on Mar 28, 2016 in Announcements, Grade School, High School, News and Events | 0 comments

Fountrams 2015 marked the start of the three-year preparation for Kong Hua School’s 80th founding anniversary. It had its theme which went, “KHS @78: Rejoicing for the Blessings that Sustained Us through the Years.” The general theme for this three-year preparation are as follows: SY 2015-2016- rejoicing, SY 2016-2017 – renewing, and SY 2017-2018 – radiating.

As an annual practice for opening the Fountrams celebration, there was a foot parade on November 25, 2016 (the first day of celebration). The foot parade is one of the many traditions during Fountrams. This event showcases the different themes and costumes of the members of each grade level as well as the extravagant and recycled attires of the muses and escorts. It’s a way of signifying the start of Fountrams 2015—and what better way to officially open Fountrams 2015 than with a barrage of colors. Participants would gather in the grade school court and walk to the preschool department; they would make a turn on the sidewalk outside the preschool department and walk back inside the campus of our school—towards the gym for the opening ceremony. As exciting music fills the air and as the audiences flock near the participants to get a closer look, we could say that the parade is ready to go.

The parade started off with the Amazing Ones armed with their camouflage hats and red balloons. Their theme captivated the hearts of the onlookers as these little soldiers paved the way. Next one who took the streets by storm were the Mighty Two—in hand were their yellow balloons. The spectators were awed and smiling joyously as they rooted for the Mighty Two. Featuring their theme as tigers were the Terrific Three. Onlookers cheered them on as they put on a fierce look and held their orange balloons with their little hands. As the second half of the grade school department came in, the thrill and excitement of the program got more intense. With the color blue occupying the street came the Fantastic Four—a great team led with a bubbly muse and an enthusiastic escort. Succeeding the Fantastic Four were the Green Archers. The team was led with a muse and escort that were dressed in amazing costumes that fitted their theme. The members of the Green Arches wore very eye-catching headbands that took the audience’s breath away. Next to soar vigilantly through the street were the Grade 6 Hawks. The ingenious costumes of the muse and escort created that wonderful illusion of them having wings. Onlookers continued to cheer them on as the Hawks wore their yellow masks. As the grade school department continued to walk away, spectators were eager to get a glimpse of what was coming next. Their breaths were held as the crowd anticipated on the next team. The onlookers put in thought that the next team would blow their socks off—oh, how right they were. The Roaring Tigers were filled with determination and were very proud at what they had in store. Competing with their cat ears and tails; they were able to fascinate the audience’s hearts. Next to charm their way to the audience’s hearts were the Aztec Warriors. Their colorful headdresses and yellow balloons caught the eyes of parents, teachers, and guests. The resourceful material that their costumes were made of made this team memorable. The audiences were enthusiastic when the Tribes came in next. You could truly feel the teamwork and eagerness of this team. The Tribes showed their fighting spirit as they chanted their chants in unison. The final team to show their vigor and determination to win were the Midnight Ravens. Dressed in black cloaks and led with a muse and escort whose costumes were spot-on, they continued to wonder and capture the audience’s attention.

With the Foot Parade at nearing to a close, everyone present still got their hearts pounding from excitement. All of the teams were able to show their abilities, props, and themes to the various guests who came at the opening day of Fountrams 2015. It was a successful take in following the tradition of our school. The foot parade introduced us to the different teams competing and left the audiences with a solid impression.

To give additional attraction to the 6-day celebration, the school organized to put up tiangge and funfair activities. In this, the school invited establishments and Konghuanians to help one another to do business during the event. The Grade 4 to Grade 10 students created their creative booths to bring up fun and joy during the so- called Fountrams. There were school rules and regulations that must be obtained when opening the booths. The booths were as follows:

  • Grade 4 Amity – Ball and Scooter Booth
  • Grade 4 Peace – Win it to Ride it!
  • Grade 5 Green Archers – Archer’s Movie House/Refreshments
  • Grade 6 Honesty – XBOX360
  • Grade 6 Integrity – With Integrity
  • Grade 6 Loyalty – Rent a Hoverboard
  • Grade 7 Generosity – Hoop Star/Bingo/UNO/LoveNotes
  • Grade 7 Humility – Shooting Range
  • Grade 9 Fidelity – Rent Some Wheels
  • Grade 9 Courage – Object of the Day
  • Grade 9 Truth – Color of the Hour
  • Grade 10 Justice – YOUR WAY OUT
  • Grade 10 Prudence – Sing mo to!
  • Grade 10 Fortitude – Bonut-bonut/Juicepong
  • Grade 10 Undrstanding – Dedication Wall of Hands
  • Grade 10 Knowledge – Delivery Booth
  • Grade 10 Wisdom – Wisdom domdomdom Horror House

 

Kong Hua School Fountrams 2015wouldn’t be complete without the hard works of the students in making their booths. It was great opportunity for students to acquire entrepreneurial skill through exposure to managing of their class/batch booth. As such, an award was given. The Wisdomdomdomdom Horror House by the Grade 10 – Wisdom students won the “Entrepeneur Award”.
