Island Government Activity


Welcome seniors

Welcome Seniors!

  • This year the Homecoming is held on a cruise ship that goes from the San Pedro Harbor to Catalina Island and back to dock in one evening. What fun! However, one problem; There was a little accident…On the way back to dock to see friends and family, your massive sized ship hit an iceberg. That’s right, your ship has capsized. Somehow at the moment of impact, all the teachers and adults on board were safely escorted off the ship to an island where cocktails (Piña Coladas and Mai Tais) are currently being served. The young and more physically able were left to fend for themselves. The remainder of the senior class is either injured or has not come ashore yet so it is up the group of you on the island to figure out how you will survive and function as a society. You have about ½ hour of daylight left, so you better hurry up! Below is a list of things you must address. Time is running out…Good luck!
