• Preschool’s United Nations Celebration (2016)

    Every month of October, United Nations is celebrated. This is a joyous time for people to embrace cultural diversity, including the Preschool children of Nest. This year, the children were engrossed with learning about distinct cultures from around the world. Each class was assigned a country where they were able to experience its culture and practices through multiple activities in a span of two weeks.

    For the Pre – Nursery and Nursery Class, they enjoyed learning about New Zealand, specifically the indigenous Maori people. On the other hand, the Pre – Kinder Class were delighted to discover about South Korean culture. Kinder – Tikling had a great time in discussing about Greece and its rich history, while Kinder – Pipit spent much time in becoming aware of the Native American culture.

    As a way to cap the celebration off, October 7, 2016 was the culminating day where the children got to exhibit their works about their specific country (refer to the picture above). They were even able to present dance performances in relation to the country the learned about.

    Finally, throughout the first semester of the school year, there has been a great number of parent volunteers who spared some time and prepared activities for the children. To show our gratitude, certificates were given to these helpful parents who are partners of the school in helping their children learn new ideas and gain new experiences.

    A celebration would not feel complete without having a feast. With several kinds of dishes from all over the world in one buffet, it was both an amazing sight and a scrumptious treat for these children.

    It was truly a fun celebration for both the parents and the students. It was also an educational experience for the children to learn about other cultural practices of several countries outside the Philippines. Until the next year’s United Nations Celebration!
