The biggest celebration that aims to nurture the gift of every child happened in this year’s National Gifted Week spearheaded by the Philippine Center for Gifted Education, Inc. (PCGE) in partnership with PROMIL® FOUR and support from the Kite Association of the Philippines.
From November 24 to 30, the National Gifted Week featured a whole-day kite flying event and a two-day conference to be attended by giftedness experts.
“This event aims to celebrate the gift that every child possesses. It is a great way for parents to encourage the creativity of their children, have fun and spend some time together. We will also be gathering the most notable experts who will discuss and share their knowledge on how to nurture a child’s gift,” said Dr. Leticia Peñano-Ho, president of PCGE.
On November 24, the celebration kicked off with the biggest kite making and flying event in Manila. Children and their parents created colorful kites and watched them rise in the air during the activity held at Burnham Green Park across Luneta from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.
Arts director of Masterpiece Movement, Kara Escay, facilitated the said activity. Attendees enjoyed exciting games, entertainment, a parade, and other surprises.
To promote discussion and share learnings on giftedness, the PCGE also held a gathering of experts for a two-day conference on November 29-30 at Hive Hotel & Convention Place in Quezon City from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM on both days. The conference focused on revisiting the Multiple Intelligences.
