Philippine Center for Gifted Education Holds National Gifted Week 2019
The biggest celebration that aims to nurture the gift of every child is happening 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.
Happening from November 24 to 30, the National Gifted Week features 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 Periano-Ho, president of PCGE.
Last November 24, the celebration kicks off with the biggest kite making and flying event in Manila. Children and their parents created colorful kites and watch them rise in the air during the activity which was held at Burnham Green Park across Luneta. Arts director of Masterpiece Movement Kara Escay facilitated the said activity. In addition, there were exciting games, entertainment, a parade, and other surprises.
To promote discussion and share learnings on giftedness, the PCGE will also be a gathering of experts for a two-day conference. Happening 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 will focus on revisiting the Multiple Intelligences.
