Mabuhay Westlake!

On Friday, 11 August 2023, Westlake held its very first Pinoy Night (Filipino Cultural Night). Only 5 hours before the event, the event sold out with an audience of over 900 people. The Westlake Girls Event Centre was filled with lively cheers not only from Filipinos but also from diverse racial backgrounds who came together to show their support for the vibrant Filipino culture.

The performers of the night proudly showcased a range of traditional dances such as Pagapir, Pandanggo sa Ilaw, Cariñosa, Sayaw sa Bangko, Tinikling, and modern music performances from the bands, duets, and soloists, along with the anticipated pageant, raffles, and games which revived the enthusiasm and embraced the rich culture of the Philippines.

To teachers, supporters, performers, prefects, helpers, and committee members, thank you for your exceptional devotion to organising this event. This night would have just been an idea without their time and dedication.

Most of all, we would like to thank Ms Misa for her unequalled commitment to Westlake Pinoy Night. Her unwavering efforts ensured the remarkable success of this event. She has gone above and beyond to support this event, ultimately bringing the community closer together.

Salamat sa inyong lahat! (Thank you all) We hope to see you again next year.
