Lastly, a quiz-like Kahoot with 12 players per house (2 players per batch) will challenge the knowledge and reading comprehension of the scholars. 

In the meantime, House Vela leads to bag the overall champion award upon dominating Kahoot and tying with House Carina in The general results will be declared in a week’s time.

The half-day stretch in the kick-starter event for the online sportsfest has concluded and has officially sparked the competition. Alchris Ceballos added,
