The very first community recreation for the Redemptorist Formation Community here in Davao was a fun filled afternoon at the local bowling alley at NCCC Mall. So excited were the students to have some fun together that all were ready at 1.30p.m, the agreed departure time. Along with the students were Fr Pio Makabenta CSsR, one of the student prefects, Sr Miriam Alexandrino OSB, the dean of studies and Ms Portia Awayan FLARE, the pastoral directoress and professor in pastoral counselling.
The whole reason for the recreation was for the students to have fun, unwind and to bond with each other hence there was no competition and everybody was just invited to just let loose the bowling balls. It was a definitely a welcome break after all the meetings and schedules of the first few weeks. Altogether we occupied 8 lanes in the bowling alley. With the constant cheers and claps, anyway passing nearby would have thought that there was really some serious bowling going on but it was all in the name of fun.
After 2 hours of bowling, the sign boards above the lanes flashed that the time limit had passed. All in all, everyone had an afternoon of good fun.
