Love was in the air at Keys School Manila on Valentine's Day! From thoughtful reflection to joyful celebration, February 14th was filled with activities that united the Keys community in friendship and purpose. Students, faculty, and stakeholders came together to mark the start of Lent, showcase talents, fundraise for student council, and spread the love on this most romantic of holidays. With melodies floating through the hallways, the smell of freshly savory treats wafting from the stalls, and the sound of laughter ringing across the festive grounds, Valentine's Day at Keys warmed hearts schoolwide.

The day kicked off on a thoughtful note as the entire student body, faculty, and visiting stakeholders attended an Ash Wednesday service to mark the beginning of Lent. Somber yet meaningful, this traditional ceremony set the tone for a day of community, compassion, and bonding.

After quiet reflection in the morning, lively festivities swept over Keys in the afternoon!

From spine-tingling vocal solos to upbeat dance numbers, the audience was amazed by the diverse range of gifts on display. The passion and polish of each act made it clear that these students had put their hearts into preparing.

Adding even more good-natured fun to the afternoon was a snack stall set up by the student council and Profeta's. Students and teachers alike could purchase savory options like hot and crispy chicken poppers and fries. With each treat sold, more funds were raised for an important cause selected by the student council, allowing attendees to satisfy their sweet or salty cravings while also contributing to the council. Chatter and laughter could be heard all around the snack stall as friends chose treats together and enjoyed the festive fundraising. The snack stall was a hit, spreading savory goodness and raising spirits across campus on Valentine's Day at Keys.

With activities ranging from spiritual to spirited, Keys School created a Valentine's Day that touched every heart. Students and faculty alike will surely remember the community and love that filled the halls on this most affectionate of occasions.
