Rain or Shine, CHILDians are One

“One Team, One Spirit, One Childian!” is a fitting theme for the Intramurals this 2019. Rain or shine, nothing can stop the Childians to show their sportsman spirit.

Rain symbolizes new beginnings. It represents birth and life. It is important in growth. Some may think of the rain as a hindrance. However, for those lovers of challenges, the rain might even serve as a blessing. Rain is cool, calming, and soothing. The team spirit of the Childians has never been stronger despite of the drenched and damaged decorations.

Not only student potentials are discovered but also their character as sports enthusiasts and challenge seekers. Each team performs their yells and cheers to liven and buildup the excitement.
