The competition ended as the Raptors settled as champion gaining them a shrilling applause from the spectators.

The Arnis and Taekwondo Clubs of the elementary and high school astounded the crowd with their sizzling and awesome exhibition that showed their prowess in poomse and self defense. The participants in taekwondo who started their training last summer are currently enrolled in the school’s taekwondo program under the initiative of the elementary school principal Mr. Rommel Alejos.
