To realize and improve their specific talents, Sacred Heart Education Center in Bago, Myanmar held a talent show for the children on November 7.

“The priority of the talent show was to encourage the young children to come to identify their specific talents and develop and express them freely without fear or force. Giving prizes to the winners is secondary,” the director of Sacred Heart Education Center, Father Abraham Shwe Win, said.

The students from kindergarten to grade 5 participated in this show.

“It is very impressive to see the children telling the stories, singing, dancing, illustrating the stories through their attractive actions boldly. There is already an improvement in the children in their learning. They begin to be creative and they express themselves freely,” An observer, Naw Rose commented.

It is a sort of post-Covid-19 activity for the Children who are learning in Sacred Heart Education Center.

“We hope that the children will continue learning with enthusiasm and be formed and trained for the bright future of themselves and that of the community,” Naw Rose noted.   

The activities of the children would be recorded in the library of the center and in the yearly record.

“The programs of the center are very supportive for the learning children during the difficult time of the country,” Father Shwe Win remarked.
