Two hundred and five incoming Padres spent the day at Serra on Friday meeting new friends and learning all about the Serra community.
The Class of 2023 was introduced to members of the Big Brothers Club, Encounter Leadership Team and Serra Executive Council. After an opening prayer and reflection, students watched a welcome video and participated in ice breakers.
Mid-morning, they enjoyed a rally out on the field and then it was all fun and games! Padres raced through obstacle courses and tricycle races and also played card and board games to promote Padre bonding.
"It was great to see the new Class of 2023 on campus today," said Assistant Admissions Director Jeff Thomas '07. "We hope they enjoyed the cookies, churros and fun games on the football field. I'm glad that the director of activities started this a few years ago -- I wish I had an event like this when I was a freshman!"
