On the 24th of August 2016, the Mu Sigma Phi Sorority held one of its annual events, Alay sa Musmos. Thanks to the animal experts and caretakers from the Wildlife Rescue Center, the kids from Creche Preparatory School met several animals during the event. Among the critters introduced to the children were two snakes, a brahminy kite, and a tortoise named Athena. The children were in great awe and enjoyed meeting each animal.
