A.M.P. Fest at Blended Learning Center
It was a fun day over at Blended Learning Center in Cubao. It was a day of Art, Music, and Pages, or A.M.P. Fest for short. This year, the third one, was aimed at raising funds for a mobile library for the local community as well as for the school's future scholars.
Matt and his schoolmates had their artwork on display, as well as their creative writing projects.
They performed "Ode to Joy" and "Leron, Leron, Sinta" on the recorder. They also sang "Peace Like a River."
Lingap Kabataan was also a special guest, a non-government organization focusing on street kids. The kids from Lingap were entertained with a getting-to-know-you game, a "basag palayok" (Matt called it a "piñata"), and a storytelling session, as well as the musical performances of the BLC kids. They also performed a special dance number of their own, with the song "Fruit of the Spirit."
There was also a performance of harp playing, which we loved.
Not a bad day to spend a Saturday afternoon.
