Last is syato, but some Filipinos called it “shatong”. To play syato or shatong you will need a short stick and a long stick. Every team will take its turn. The first team will fling the short stick off the small hole where the short stick is place using the long stick. Presently he/she should be watchful that the opponent does not get the short stick. In the event that the other group gets is, the present group loses their turn and the restricting group takes their swing to heave the short stick.
The above mentioned Filipino games played mostly by Filipino children. Since Filipino culture was the highlight of this Culture day celebration in Genius English Proficiency Academy, Filipino games were introduced and played. Both students and teachers were joining and enjoying the moment in playing games. And it’s nice to see that lots of students were participating though they don’t even familiar on it but still they cooperate. Thanks Students!
