School Activity in the Philippines

Ever since I was a child I had participated in different school activities. One of my favorite is the United Nation Activity that we did in my old high school. We dressed up to the countries we were assigned and then eventually came together to dance surrounding the whole school with people who wore the different costumes of the nations they were assigned. It symbolized that people from different parts of the world can come together and celebrate in harmony.
