Claretians spent the evening of February 24, 2019 with elegance, glamour, and fun as the Grade Eleven Level held their Juniors Promenade at Fairmont Hotel in the city of Makati. Entitled “Stella della Sera”, meaning “the star of the evening”, the event took its participants back to the era of 1940s Hollywood as live music, red carpet looks, bright lights, and award ceremonies filled the night. The teachers, students of Batch S, and their partners displayed their fashionable looks at the starry red carpet walk. The international cuisine buffet kept the students satisfied as they ate, socialized, and bonded during the dinner. Along with performances from the bands of the batch and other solo acts, the up-and-coming indie band Carousel Casualties was a highlight of the event as they filled the venue with their colorful music and performance. Awards for Best Promposal and Best AVP were given out for the batch contests and other awards including Stunners and Darling of the Night were given out for the most fashionable and confident gentlemen and lady. Stag of the Night was awarded for the solo male attendee of the event who still took the event by storm with his charm and energy despite having no date, and the Couple of the Night was awarded to the student and partner whose chemistry and charisma turned everyone’s heads. Lastly, the Prom King and Queen were awarded and closed the event with a dance along with the Couple of the Night and later, with the original partners of the King and Queen.
The promenade is an opportunity for Claretians to exercise their socializing skills and etiquette to bring out the Claretian gentleman inside, as well as, create some of the most unforgettable memories for the high school students. Without a doubt, the Claretians took their time to shine in Makati that evening and surely, it’s a night they’ll never forget.
