At SCHS teachers and students have been preparing themselves for the big day on February 28, 2024, where the final set of races will take place along with the famous cheerleading competitions. The day began with devotion to ask for God's guidance and protection. Later on, each house showcases its best cheer which took close to 2 hours to complete all the houses. At the end of all the presentations, the judges met and the results were ready to be shared.


In first place, Orleans (Blue House) came out victorious in being the Cheerleading Champions for this year 2024 followed by Pascal (Green), Goreti (Purple), Lourdes (Red), Avilla (Yellow), Mercedes (Orange).

They foster confidence, healthy competition, and school spirit.
