One of the Grade 7 activities that Justin attended at Pisay was the Urbanity Bash: A Showcase of Good Taste and Refinement of Behavior, which was held at the PSHS Gymnasium last February 15. Urbanity Bash was a major requirement in their Values Education I (ValEd) subject and comprised 20% of their grade for the 3rd quarter. The Urbanity Bash allowed Grade 7 students to apply in real life the topics they discussed in their ValEd class like social graces and good manners, as well as virtues like temperance, modesty, self-discipline, etc.
Grade 7 students were required to dress up in semi-formal attire and to show proper behavior throughout the program, i.e., observing proper table manners when eating and practicing social graces when dancing and communicating with others.
Dancing was also an integral part of the Urbanity Bash. Each section had to present a group dance. Justin’s class, Grade 7-Emerald, performed a modern dance medley, which was well-applauded. Students likewise had the chance to ask their classmates or students from other section to dance with them.
