Athletic opportunities in both individual and team sports cultivate the value of discipline, team work, personal initiative, fortitude, and sportsmanship.
The following are the sports-oriented varsities offered in Woodrose:
The school has two student governments: The Woodrose Student Council (WSC) for High School and the Jr. Woodrose Student Council (JWSC) for Grade School. They organize activities that foster school spirit and promote our core values; support the general welfare of students; represent the school in various events on and off campus; and channel student concerns to the faculty and administration. They live by the motto, “To lead is to serve.”
Stemming from one of the Woodrose core values – concern for others – various community service opportunities are available to all members of the school community from students at all levels, to parents, alumnae, and staff.
Through the community service initiatives of the school, students go beyond their comfort zones and acquire a better understanding of the needs of others. In the process, they learn humility, compassion, and the importance of helping in big and small ways that cultivate the spirit of service and responsible citizenship.
The fundamental purpose of the cultural exchange program is to immerse students in different cultural, linguistic, socio-economic, or religious backgrounds. The program is carried out between high school students of Woodrose and St. Joseph Girls’ School in Japan. Though Japan exudes modernity, its people have a deep reverence for the past and a fervent belief in tradition, making travel to their country a very positive and rewarding experience for foreign exchange students.
Woodrose students live with a host family from St. Joseph and attend school with their host sisters. They sit in class lectures; participate in school-wide activities; go on sightseeing and cultural tours; and do community service such as visits to the sick and the aged. Through these unique experiences, they gain a deeper understanding of both their own and another culture that can help them grow in tolerance and appreciation of cultural differences; grow in self-confidence, independence and adaptability; meet new people and develop life-long friendships among their classmates and host families; and become ambassadors in their own way, sharing the Filipino culture with others.
Intramurals & Family Day
Intramurals and Family Day are school traditions that breathe excitement every year and create lasting memories for everyone. The Intramurals is a series of sports competitions held on specific days of the school year. Each new student is assigned to one of the four house teams – Red Conquerors, Blue Phoenixes, Green Griffins, and Gold Lions – and remains in the same team throughout her stay in Woodrose and even beyond graduation. Each house is led by a Team Captain who rallies her members, from the youngest in Grade School to the oldest in Senior High School, to play hard and play fair. The “big sisters” in high school guide their “little sisters” in grade school. They learn to depend on and be responsible for each other.
Intramurals culminates with championship games and team parade on Family Day. It is a whole day affair which includes cheering competition and family tournaments in football, basketball, volleyball, softball, ultimate Frisbee, table tennis, tug-o-war, and much more. The event brings together the entire school community – students, parents, alumnae and staff – with their families and friends for a full day of healthy competition and camaraderie.
Intramurals and Family Day also provide opportunities for developing leadership, cooperation, and sportsmanship among the students.
