Precious as diamonds, our dear moms deserve a celebration like no other! The Cambridge BHS kids spent this special day to pay tribute to their moms. They made beaded bracelet and a bouquet of paper flowers. The kids also rendered a special song and dance number. Happy Mother's Day to the most precious gem in the family!
With much interest in tents as transient homes of hikers, the Kinder kids went to Recreational Outdoor Exchange (ROX) at Bonifacio High Street. Sir Red showed them different tools used by hikers such as headlamp, survival kit, life straw, sleeping bag and the like. But what they truly enjoyed was putting up and pretending to sleep in the lightest tent that weighs only half a kilo! :)
The kinder class has explored the field of food preparation, table setting, food services and kitchen workers. The children were very lucky to have visited 3 restaurants that offer different food services such as Mc Donalds (fast food), Niu by Vikings (buffet) and 2nd's (fine dining restaurant). These field works made their learning more meaningful and interesting.
Exploring and experiencing first hand, the children went out on fieldworks to further investigate the topics they have discussed in class. Some of them went to the fruit stand to check on the different seeds found in each fruit, identify it and buy the one they need for their follow up activity. Bigger kids went to the Pet store to find out the animals that feed on seeds and other plant products. Kids who went to the flower shop also had fun doing flower arrangement. The Kinder class also had a very meaningful experience of visiting the Echostore which houses organic products that help save Mother Earth. It was indeed a great learning experience for everyone!
Cambridge BHS relaunched its Pretoddler program last October 11, 2014. Babies 10 months old to 1.5 years old joined us for a morning of fun activities with their parents. They enjoyed playing, doing their hot air balloon craft, singing songs and listening to the storytelling. Till next time!
In collaboration with the Philippine Marines headed by Brigadier General Martin N. Pinto, the footwear and books gathered during our term 1 culmination was successfully delivered to the children in Zamboanga. It put a lot of smiles in the children's faces. Thank you Cambridge parents for your generosity and the Philippine Marines for being the means to have this activity realized! Our hearts are overjoyed!
Giving back is what we always aim for at the end of each term. With our "fashion shoe" the parents and children were able to enjoy sharing what they have while appreciating their children's work and ability to present themselves in the crowd. On that day also, our friend from Philippine Navy, Brigadier General Martin N. Pinto joined us to give us an idea of the situation of children in Zamboanga, a war-stricken area in Mindanao. Those children were the recipients of the different footwear gathered from this event. Thank you Cambridge parents and children! A little help goes a long way!
The children have truly enjoyed the term Shoes. They have learned a lot from knowing the different types of shoes, to what happens in a shoe store. Some classes also explored different activities they do with various shoes such as sports. They also got to meet people who use special kind of shoes for work like the soldier. But more importantly, they learned the importance of having shoes and became aware that there are also some people who have no means to buy shoes, thus it is also nice to share!
Parent- school collaboration is highly valued in Cambridge. Thus, it is always best to start the school year with Parent Orientation. This became a great opportunity for both parents and teachers alike to get to know each other and be in sync with our philosophy and goal in providing a quality education for their children.
