The holiday season is in full swing, and before everyone goes back home to spend Christmas with family, Goldenstate kicked off the month’s festivities on December 1 with the inaugural Light-a-Tree Countdown celebration.
Spearheaded by Mr. John Manilay, Head of the Development Office, the Light-a-Tree Countdown is the culmination of the efforts of students, faculty, and staff. Each department spent the preceding weeks decorating a tree in the courtyard. Except for the Christmas lights, all of the decorations needed to be sourced from recycled materials. This added challenge tested the creativity and ingenuity of each team, and on Monday evening, once the sun had set, their stunning innovations were on bright, luminous display.
