Pahinungod volunteers facilitated the first off-campus team building activity of the staff of Animal and Dairy Sciences Cluster (ADSC) of the College of Agriculture (CA) last June 18 at the Caliraya Resort Club in Laguna.
Over 50 members of ADSC, including College of Agriculture Dean Dr. Enrico P. Supangco, ADSC Director Dr. Elpidio M. Agbisit, Jr., Professor Emeritus Dr. Carmencita D. Mateo and other instructors, professors, and administrative staff, participated in the event.
Mrs. Ester O. Santiago, an Administrative Officer IV in ADSC who joined the event, said that the activities helped them relax and de-stress.
“The event was successful and the volunteers were good in assisting us,” she added.
The team of volunteers led by Department of Humanities instructor Ms. Katherine Gonzales, together with senior volunteers Therese Anne Medina, Marjohn Reglos, Donna Paz, and Luis de Belen, designed a teambuilding program aimed to foster and reinforce camaraderie among ADSC faculty members and staff. It was also intended to be a fun activity where they can unwind and relax.
The program, which started from 8am and lasted until 3pm, included activities such as relay races, obstacle courses, mind games and other group dynamics.
According to faculty volunteer Ms. Gonzales, “compared to my other teambuilding activities, this one was very challenging [because we] were handling people [with] different age range.”
She also mentioned that this was her most memorable experience in facilitating seeing how all faculty members and staff, despite their age and status, worked competitively and cooperatively at the same time. EJSumayod
