The biggest celebration that aims to nurture the gift of every child happened last Sunday November 24, 2019 as the Philippine Center for Gifted Education, Inc. (PCGE) in partnership with PROMIL® FOUR and support from the Kite Association of the Philippines officially launched The National Gifted Week.
From November 24 until the 30th, the National Gifted Week has featured a whole-day kite flying event and a two-day conference that was 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.
The celebration kicks off with the biggest kite making and flying event in Manila. Children and their parents were able to create colorful kites and watched them rise in the air during the activity which was 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 also enjoyed the exciting games, entertainment, a parade, and other surprises.
To promote discussion and share learnings on giftedness, the PCGE gathered experts for a two-day conference which was held last November 29-30 at the 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.
Sharing their expertise are experts that include Mr. Ryan Cayabyab, Ms. Shaira Luna, Ms. Kara David, Ms. Roselle Ambubuyog, Dr. Carlos Arcilla, Mr. Ryan Tumbocon, and Mr. Kim Atienza. They discussed how to nurture a child’s gift based on their dominant intelligences which can be among Musical-Rhythmic, Visual/Spatial, Verbal Linguistic, Logical Mathematical, Science, Interpersonal and Intrapersonal, Naturalistic, or Body-Kinesthetic.
