Our school drop-out youth joined the celebration of the National Language month by showcasing their talents in singing, poetry writing, cultural dancing and pageantry.
The program emphasized the preservation of culture, heritage, and identity through Filipino and indigenous languages. Besides demonstrating love for the Filipino language, the different competitions also gave the participants the opportunity to develop self-confidence.
Our school drop-out children would normally miss these precious moments as these celebrations are huge in the Filipino schools. Young Focus wants to celebrate this "Buwan ng Wika" (Month of the National Language) so they can be prous of being a Filipino.
The staff were proud to see how these participants had developed their talents and improved through practice and determination!
Greetings from Manila! One of the school dropout programs is called 'Love2Learn'. Love2Learn children are children from ages 8 up to 15. Recently they had an educational tour at the National Museum of Natural History and the National Planetarium in celebration of the Museums and Galleries Month. They were overjoyed with the experience. A side trip to the Manila's Luneta Park made it even more meaningful -- they rode a train, ate ice cream, watched the birds and shared a good laugh with their classmates. This tour gave them multi-sensory opportunities for learning that is sure to last a lifetime.
Just over 60 children attend the Love2Learn classes and our vision is that they will be able to go back to a regular school after this school year. We wish them good luck!
