    In celebration of the National Gifted Week 2019, the Philippine Center for Gifted Education, Inc. (PCGE) and the Kite Association of the Philippines in partnership with Promil Four, will let children and their parents design and fly a kite on November 24 during the Let Your Gift

    Soar event at Luneta Park.
    For this event, children can create colorful kites and watch them soar. Promil Four, i-Shine Art Mentor and Arts Director of Masterpiece Movement Kara Escay will be facilitating the kite making activity. There will also be exciting surprises for everyone to look forward to.

    Aside from the festivities, PCGE and Promil Four, will also be holding a two-day Giftedness Conference on November 29 and 30 at Hive Hotel, Quezon City where various experts from different fields will discuss the 8 different gifts—Linguistic, Musical, Bodily-Kinesthetic, Logical-Mathematical, Naturalist, Interpersonal, Intrapersonal, Spatial-Relation. Join this conference to further understand child’s strengths and how these can be discovered and nurtured as he grows. Among the panel of experts include Ms. Shaira Luna, Ms. Kara David, Ms. Roselle Ambubuyog, Dr. Carlos Arcilla, Mr. Ryan Tumbocon, and Mr. Kim Atienza.

    “Through this event, we would like everyone to realize that giftedness is multi-faceted. A kid who can play the piano is equally great as a kid who can paint, sing, or dance. What we want to do is for them to maximize these gifts,” said Dr. Leticia Peñano-Ho, president of PCGE.
