Virlanie believes that in order to bring the best service for the children, its staff has to be strongly bonded and connected.

On October 13, 2017, all Virlanie staff gathered in Carmona covered court for a day of games and bonding. Virlanie Sports Fest is Virlanie’s annual Olympic games, a part of the HR-led series of team building events on the theme “Staying strong, Staying connected.”

Divided in 4 teams named with a reference Virlanie’s 25th anniversary theme Silverlinings, our employees and volunteers, office workers and house staff spent a whole day competing in a fun and joyful atmosphere. The teams were Silver Hearts, Silver Sharks, Silver as One and Silver Bells.

After a quick Zumba warm-up, each team performed its own cheer dance routine. Each team trained after working hours a week before the actual event. Home-made costumes, inspired taglines, amazing cheerleading dances and strong team spirit were the results of that daily practice.
