“A MUSICAL JOURNEY TO THE AGES”

Music is important in the learning process of children. It associates the correlation between student enjoyment and student interest. Singing — as an example — can be an alternative medium in teaching literacy, and developing oral communication sans the direct instructional modulation.

It is important that young students are immersed in an environment that promotes audible expression as an extra part of the curriculum.

The Children’s Ark Preparatory School believes in promoting music and giving children another means of self-expression, allowing them to artistically impart their feelings and emotions they bear, whether it be happiness, frenzy, or frustration. In a very real sense, this is building up their Emotional Intelligence.

More on our student’s EQ, The Children’s Ark Preparatory School held another musical gathering. Dubbed “A Musical Journey To The Ages” the event was held on February 11, 2017 at the Philippine Social Science Center Auditorium in UP Diliman. The musicale was a presentation of our young students’ talent in the field of music as they performed medleys of songs and dances from the Golden Oldies, or from the ’50s to the ’60s era.

The superb presentation was a result of the Coach Nino’s tireless effort in laying it out for everyone. The event was jazzed up by cool raffle prizes and a dance number from our very own faculty members.

COSPLAY FOR A CAUSE

A date with movie/comics “characters” as The Children’s Ark Preparatory School held Cosplay For A Cause, a gala of our little cosplayers assembled for the benefit of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society and the Social Development Center (SDC).

The Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) is a volunteer-based non-government organization whose goal is to prevent animal cruelty through education, animal sheltering and advocacy. The SDC on the other hand aims at protecting, rehabilitating and training the children, while facilitating their social preparation for future family reunification and community integration.

The SDC, however, is currently suffering from a critical lack of resources, mostly financial and technical. This public institution receives insufficient support to operate full services and meet the basic needs of the children.

Much as cosplay provided the kids a whole lot of fun in playing dress-up with cool characters, our pack of awesome cosplayers have joined together in extending a helping hand and more for the two institutions.

La Mesa Ecopark Retreat

Gilbert Chesterton hit it plainly, ” The true object of all human life is play. Earth is a task garden; heaven is a playground.”

The Children’s Ark Preparatory School believes that the growth and development of every child should not be confined only in the four corners of the room. The monotonous routine every student has to undergo daily for the rest of his or her grade school life produces only an unhealthy pattern. There should be an escape. A once in a while dodge from the realities and challenges of the daily life. A momentarily time away to seek a path of discernment and to live life more fully.

TCAPS  guarded and set aside a time for a RETREAT without interruptions; a safe and quiet place to contemplate, reflect and play; with the school’s dutiful teachers as the guiding voices. And on January 28,  we found ourselves at the refreshing La Mesa Dam Ecopark for a one full day of  bonding, self-development and most importantly, withdrawal from the harried life.

In riding a horse, we borrow freedom!

They say the bicycle is a curious vehicle because its passengers is its engine.

Always remember to be happy because you never know who’s falling in love with your smile.

Freedom goes hand in hand with mutual respect.

Out and About: Educational Tour 2010

 

TCAPS went beyond the classroom walls and into the vast community outside last September 10, 2010 on a school outing that provided students with experiences that cannot be duplicated in the school but are nonetheless an integral part of the general knowledge which are worthwile for students. A fun-filled day of learning expansion!

First stop: MUSEO NG KATIPUNAN. A time-warped museum complete of replicas and images that delivers visitors back in time to the Spanish era up to the Philippine Revolution of the 1800s.

Next, TCAPS paid homage to the less fortunate children of the Fundacion de Damas de Filipinas Settlement House run by the Asosasyon de Damas de Filipinas Foundation in Paco, Manila. The institution that went down on an infernal tragedy killing dozens of lives more than a decade ago.

At the KULTURANG PINOY, the students were re-oriented to various Philippine cultures, traditions and native dances. Some long-established common recreations like piko, sungka, chinese garter, trumpo, sipa and patintero were relived.
