October 19th-23rd:  “Museum of Filipiniana”

 

In honor of our gracious host country, the Children’s Media Center is proud to host a week-long Museum of Filipiniana.  Displays will include examples of traditional handicrafts and clothing, as well as descriptions of fruits, animals and games found only in the Philippines.

The Preschoolers have created a large and lively floor display, entitled “Oh Manila!” which will be the centerpiece of our humble but proud exhibit.

A special feature this year is the Filipino concept of “bayanihan” or helping one another other out in times of need.  This display will showcase photographs of ISM students and teachers lending a hand to assist in Ondoy relief efforts.
