Parents were in high spirits with the program saying that “Our children had improved their Chinese language proficiency and had a deeper understanding about the Chinese history, culture and values. Students had equal chances of performing on stage, may it be acting or singing, which they cannot experience during regular school.”
Every student looks forward to summer vacation. At the same time, parents also want to take this opportunity to enroll their kids in summer classes. The Tan Yan Kee Foundation, Inc. (TYKFI) combined learning and enjoyment by sponsoring the 2014 Tan Yan Kee Library Summer Class from March 26 to June 8, at the 16th flr., San Fernando Tower, 514 Muelle de Binondo St., Binondo Manila. The schedule are as follows, Tuesdays to Fridays: Chinese History Class, Thursdays to Saturdays: St. Jude Special Class, Saturdays and Sundays: Chinese Literature Class.
Children ages 13 to 16 and six to 12 had a most fruitful summer as they joined the yearly Tan Yan Kee Library activities. The former group was in History class and the latter in Fables Class.
The Tan Yan Kee Library graduated 54 pupils at the end of its 2011 Summer Activity. This is an annual offering of the library for the youth.
Participants this summer, whose ages ranged from six to fifteen years old, had an interesting mix of studies that included Chinese History and Language (Idioms) and enrichment activities involving play-acting, handicrafts, singing and dancing, and beadwork. Their final output was showcased and given to their mothers during the celebration of Mother’s Day. Culminating activity was their graduation and awarding of certificate of participation.
