On Friday, July 01, 2016 a closing ceremony for the Continuing Education (CE) 2016 Summer Kids Program was held at the Assembly Hall of Palau Community College (PCC). The ceremony was an opportunity for the elementary school students to showcase the artistic and cultural skills that they learned while participating in the program. Present to enjoy the performances were the students’ family members as well as interested members of the community. Also in attendance were PCC President Dr. Patrick U. Tellei, PCC Dean of Continuing Education (CE) William O. Wally, and the summer program instructors.
The 2016 Summer Kids Program offered summer classes began on Monday, June 06, 2016. Over a four-week period, students participated in various cultural & educational activities designed to enhance their learning abilities. Subjects covered in this year’s summer classes included mathematics (with an emphasis on Singapore math), English reading & writing, Palauan orthography, marine/environmental science, music, and art.
In addition to improving their academic skills, the summer program students also participated in activities that enhanced their understanding of Palau’s traditions and cultural practices. The students learned traditional skills such as basket-weaving and the proper method for building a fish trap. In addition, the students learned about Palau’s mythology through traditional chants and storytelling.
During the closing ceremony, the elementary school students performed various skits that highlighted the lessons they learned over the summer. This included a number of songs that they had learned in their music classes that were taught by PCC Associate Professor of Music Howard Charles. The students also received certificates in recognition of their academic efforts and scholastic improvements.
