For students in its care, FPVI provides the platform for discovery and adventure. Each Sunday session brings new learnings in unexpected ways. For example, while the schools settled with the modular distance learning system during the pandemic, FPVI introduced learning through self-discovery. Projects like the e-book, the video trilogy---Christmas in August, Local News Recap, and Uswag, virtually---fully reflected their own experiences and memories that they were not aware they could tap and mine for their written work and arts and crafts work.
The FPVI Christmas celebration in 2022 came in the form of Year-End Retreat aimed at helping the students focus on setting goals beyond senior high school, encompassing the spiritual and practical dimension, and made possible by sessions with a Catholic missionary priest, a school teacher, a district school supervisor, a Theology School rector, and Tunga’s town mayor. The side activities were just as important and the thoughtful questions at the end of each session and at mealtime revealed a growing maturity in each of them. The retreat reaffirmed FPVI’s role in the students’ lives and as a safe place for fostering and nurturing their potential. It was a first for all but also their first sleepover, first visit to the city, first time to dine in a proper restaurant, and first time to see historic sites. The group left the FPVI Center with a genuine sense of joy, appreciation and optimism from the 4-day retreat experience.
This e-booklet aptly captures the spirit of the retreat.
