Promil Four's Learning Camp - Shaping the Gift to Build Tomorrow’s Greats

Hello po! Frens, who among you still remember the series of commercials about Promil's The Gifted Child? I sure do and vividly recall those young geniuses showcasing their brilliance in their respective fields! My fave one was "The sun is in the center of our solar system. Moving around it are the planets!" O di ba! Batang 90's e!

Last November 7, 2017, I attended Promil Four's event at the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila in Pasay City. This came to be as  part of this year’s celebration of the Gifted Awareness Month.

The Learning Workshop was conducted by PROMIL Four, in partnership with the Philippine Center for Gifted Education (PCGE). It featured expert speakers in the field of Developmental Pediatrics, Clinical Psychology, Obstetrics, Health & Wellness, Arts, and Nutrition.

The said event is in line with the brand’s theme of “Shaping the Gift to Build Tomorrow’s
Greats.” It was a gathering of celebrity and blogger parents. We participated in a series of workshops and activities. This is a bid by Wyeth to educate us about the importance of building a strong foundation for children’s learning abilities.

The Essential 3 R's of before were Reading, 'Riting and 'Rithmetic. Children of today are bound by the 3 R's- Reasoning, Resilience, Responsibility.

The 9 Facets of the Future of Learning-
1. Love for learning
2. Skill at learning
3. Communication
4. Self knowledge
5. Worldliness
6. Comfort with complexity
7. People sense
8. Goal setting
9. Open mind

According to Dra. Leticia Ho, Clinical Psychologist/Neurotherapist and President of Philippine Center for Gifted Education, the future will be different for children. In the face of an ever-changing world, they will need to learn a different set of skills.

The best period to nurture these abilities lies in the crucial first 1,000 days of the child, starting with the mother’s pregnancy. It is during these days that the child responds and adapts to different interventions.

“A child’s development results from an ongoing and cumulative process of nurturing. This means that your child’s brain development can be affected by both environmental and intrinsic factors,” added Ho.

“This event aims to educate the parents on the proper tools and approach to help shape their child’s gift. With the proper parenting, proper stimulation, and proper nutrition we believe that your child can reach his full potential.”

The camp has a social activity, through a giant block game, focusing on the need of being socially adept for better learning. It underlined how an imaginative game can promote strong leadership qualities in children through imagination, communication, and collaboration.

We made our best castle here. First, without talking, then the second time, speaking is allowed. I was in Team 3, and was I lucky that Dimples Romana was my groupmate! The facilitator was Dr. Tippy.

Next, the physical activity focused on the importance of growth and immunity to strengthen physical agility through a yoga class. As a productive meditation activity, it showed how yoga can stimulate body movement and sensory experiences for children.

It also promotes multi-dimensional learning as it encourages balance and coordination, focus and concentration, mind and body connection, and self-awareness and mindfulness.

I love the detox and relaxing experience! We were mentored by Yoga Teacher Mosh.

Finally, the mental activity featured an art workshop developed to encourage recognition and memory. This activity focused on bringing the experience on how art can develop a child’s memory through storytelling and painting while inculcating repetitive practices and rhythms.

I became a child again in art school, hehehe! Did you know that I love drawing? I had the chance to be a contender in a few art competitions, and I even studied Fine Arts for a while! Here is Therapeutic Art Practitioner Teacher Cara.

They said that day was OUR day. A time-out from all the stress and tasks. And to be a 5 year old once more on playtime.

Our tummies were very happy as we were pampered with yummy food- from breakfast, lunch at the Spiral Buffet, to snacks after Yoga, and merienda! Can you say spoilt much?

One of the most important take away learning is the importance of the FIRST 1000 DAYS! It begins from the moment of conception up to the second birthday. So, no, it is not true na dugo pa lang yun!

The first 1000 days is the most crucial for physical, social, emotional, mental, cognitive development. Pregnant mommies should also take the best nutrition, like Wyeth ProMama.

Promil Four has Nutrissentials! You can see its clear advantage over other brands.

To end the event, Dra. Leticia Penano-Ho gave a key message and that is “Every child has the talent which can be a Gift if discovered and nurtured early. It is the parent’s role to make the child’s talent reach his full potential, or else that gift could just be there untapped and undiscovered.”

Aside from the Learning Workshop, this year, PROMIL® Four is also partnering with Atlantis Production. They will be showcasing awe-inspiring talents in the local production of Matilda the Musical, a theater play that features the story of a gifted child.

The three child actors, who will portray the lead role of the play are Esang De Torres of ABS-CBN’s “The Voice Kids” and “Les Miserables” Asian Tour; Uma Naomi Martin of  “A Little Princess”; and Gawad Musika’s Outstanding Child Performer, Felicity Kyle Napuli.

This musical play will run from November 10 to December 10, 2017.

The three boys performed the two songs wonderfully. I myself had goosebumps while some ladies shed tears uncontrollably!
