PAG holds ‘Nurture Giftedness’ convention

The Philippine Association for the Gifted (PAG), the country’s foremost organization for the promotion of giftedness and advocacy for gifted children and youth, held its 12th Annual Convention-Workshop last November 25 from 8AM to 5PM at the Mandarin Hotel Suites of the Gateway Mall, Araneta Center Cubao, Quezon City.

With the theme “Nurturing Giftedness: New Directions,” the convention-workshop aimed to recognize the importance of nurturing children’s potentials. The event also coincided with the country’s 10th year celebration of the “National Week for the Gifted and Talented.”

As a venue for teachers and parents to learn new methods in nurturing their child’s talents and potentials, this two-day event also gathered school administrators, guidance counselors and professors. This event was promoted by Promil Pre-school, a powdered milk drink for children 4-7 years of age. Promil Pre-school contains Nutrissentials – a unique combination of essential nutrients to help optimize a child’s full potential.

Mary Ellen Ryan, an expert on gifted children and currently the Director for Implementation of the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) which shows teachers how to develop students’ talents by assessing their strengths and providing enrichment through resources and services, stood as the facilitator of the event. Registration cost P2,500 but special discounts were given to the early registrants.
