COVID-Safe Social Activities Foster Friendships at Hawaiian Mission Academy

Pacific Sunrise Hawaii COVID-Safe Social Activities Foster Friendships at Hawaiian Mission Academy
Hawaiian Mission Academy Students
In mid-October, Hawaiian Mission Academy’s spirit week included a tourist attire theme in honor of the reopening of transpacific flights.
One of the most unexpected outcomes of COVID in an in-person academy setting is the uncertainty and hesitancy in social interactions from students. Parents and media have taught young people to social distance, to limit conversation to less than 15 minutes, and to angle their bodies away from each other’s food. The dilemma for a young person then becomes to weigh the risks of having much-needed social interaction with others or COVID-safe isolation. Hawaiian Mission Academy’s ASHMA (Associated Students of Hawaiian Mission Academy) has combated this dilemma by hosting in-school social activities where students can compete against one another in spirit week, online games, movies in which class activities have been woven, classroom decoration competitions, and more. With the success of these activities, HMA has seen relationships grow and develop in a COVID-safe environment. It is their goal to foster the love of God in each of their students and lay the foundation of life-long friendships.
