MANILA -- Seeing one’s children succeed is among the most rewarding aspects of being a parent. However, there are many factors that affect a child’s development, especially during their most critical age of learning.
While still young, a parent can be the No. 1 support a child will need. Let them unleash their highest potential in a stimulating environment with an opportunity to shine.
Now on its fifth year, iShine Talent Camp has been a venue for kids aged above 3 to 7 years old to play and learn under credible mentors in the field of arts, music, and performance.
Living up to its promise of a “bigger and better” season, this year’s talent camp ended on a beautiful note, with kids showing off their talents in arts, music, singing and dancing.
Hosted by Kapamilya star Dimples Romana, 30 grand finalists were chosen from hundreds of kids who submitted their task videos online to get a chance to join a two-day workshop covering music, arts, and stage.
Award-winning graphic artist Robert Alejandro taught the kids how to enhance their creativity at the Art Camp, where he made sure that the young participants were having fun, as this is when one's "uniqueness" show.
True enough, the iShiners proudly showcased the puppets and dioramas they personally made at camp during the grand finale.
Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, a first-time mentor this season, headed the Music Camp to teach kids "discipline and hard work" through music education. For the finale, the iShiners created beats using recycled materials as their instruments.
Meanwhile, the Stage Camp, where kids were mentored in singing and dancing, had G-Force founder Georcelle Dapat-Sy and veteran rocker Rico Blanco as the mentors.
"Let's help them nurture the gift," a proud Teacher Georcelle said at the grand finale.
Parents could not help but be proud of what their kids presented in the grand finale held last November 12. While they were performing, parents shouted their kid’s name and applauded as soon as the performance ended. The kids, meanwhile, were all smiles as they showcased their puppets, danced to the beat, and belted out songs.
Three kids, however, shone the brightest from each camp and were chosen as this year's Grand iShiners.
Sean Hayden won from the Stage Camp, while Seth Levi Salada topped the Music Camp and Alliyah Umandal was chosen from the Art Camp.
True to Promil Pre-school’s commitment to be a partner in talent development, the prizes for this year are in partnership with credible institutions -- Cultural Center of the Philippines for the Art Camp, Star Magic for the stage camp and the School of Ryan Cayayab for the Music Camp.
These three awe-inspiring kids will get to continue their journey to talent mastery through a year-long customized training program under the partner organizations.
But no one really went home empty-handed as all of the kids were able to enhance their talents and learn from their mentors.
After all, what matters most is that every child gets the support, encouragement, proper nutrition, and opportunity to shine.
