TO PROMOTE knowledge and appreciation of sports and the arts, the UST Public Affairs and Alumni Office (PAAO), Office for Community Development, College of Fine Arts and Design (CFAD), and the Institute of Physical Education and Athletics (IPEA) held the 5th Summer Arts Workshop and Sports Clinic with the theme “Youth for Peace” last May 6 to 9 in the municipalities of Ferrol, Odiongan, and Looc in Tablas Island, Romblon.

“We were really much welcomed and the people from those provinces were very appreciative,” PAAO director Anna Maria Gloria Ward said.

In a primer released by the PAAO, the annual program aims to form a progressive and humane society that seeks to develop among its participants a citizenry responsible to the service of God, country and the global community.

This year, 57 youth aged 11-16 participated. Each participant took part in lectures and different activities such as acrylic painting, ballroom dancing, basketball, volleyball, football, personality development training, and a Eucharistic Celebration to further promote value formation.

The participants, with the assistance of professor-facilitators from CFAD and IPEA, also engaged in the production of a collaborative mural, which was later donated to Ferrol town. Jose Bimbo F. Santos
