Every Friday around 3:30 – 4:30 in the afternoon, all kids ranging from 9 – 11 years of age are gathered to join one of the activities that are prepared by one of our social workers here in Bahay Aurora. She is Ms. Safhe Sitan. One of the recent activities was called “Something special about me”. On this activity, the children had to write something about “unique characteristics” on their notebooks about themselves, and on the other hand, the children were instructed to write on the other child’s notebook the uniqueness of their companion.
And then afterwards, each one of them had to read the characteristics that were written on their notebook in front of Ms. Safhe and the other kids from Bahay Aurora. This activity lasted for an hour and the purpose of this recreational activity was to enhance the child’s skills in social communication and awareness.
