Cagayan State University took pride with Tuguegarao City as another page of history was unfolded during the second year celebration of the Pavvurulun-AFI Festival 2015, last August 7, 2015 along Enrile Boulevard, in front of the City Hall.

Last year was the first blow of the said festival and CSU, through the College of Human Kinetics’ workforce and around 3,000 Basic P.E. students, acted as the key player in its realization.

This year, the city government tapped all Basic P.E. teachers both at Andrews and Carig campuses as frontline choreographers unlike last year where the city government hired outside choreographers. This move made this year’s AFI Festival more historical on the part of CSU as it gave their P.E. teachers the chance to showcase their skills in doing choreography.

With the privilege received, Dr. Chita Ramos didn’t stop coordinating with the point persons of the City government regarding all the concepts, needs, rehearsals and other matters concerning the festival.

In fact, just right after the notice for this endeavour was sent to CSU and was later cascaded to CHK, Dean Ramos immediately called for a faculty meeting, assigned different committees, gave general orders to all Basic P.E. staff and sought the cooperation and help from all CHK faculty and staff; then later, CSU Red Eagle Gymnasium again became very busy for practices accommodating 2900 Basic P.E students in their respective schedules.

Moreover, this year’s AFI festival, to contrast it with the previous, is indeed made memorable to all participants since the city government provided them with an allowance and free costumes. And as promised, the participation of the Basic P.E. students in the recently concluded festival will serve as their prelim grade; hence, such condition compelled the students to religiously attend practices and rehearsals even under the sweltering heat of the sun.

This year’s AFI Festival again wowed the audience and gained appreciation as seen in the continuous flooding of AFI-verous stories in the social media.
