600 Tarlac preschoolers join KID Scouts Day


TARLAC: At least 600 preschoolers in this province joined the recent Kabataang Imumulat Diwa (KID) Scouts Day at SM City Tarlac as part of the Boy Scouts of the Philippines’ (BSP) first step in the scouting trail to help the youth develop values and acquire competencies.

Held annually, the BSP’s KID Scouting section aims to produce individuals, starting from a young age, to become responsible citizens and capable leaders anchored on the Scout Oath and Law.

“This activity is intended for preschoolers (Kinder 1 and 2) to start teaching independence at an early age and sportsmanship through games, while fostering friendship with different schools,” said Salve Aguilar, BSP-Tarlac Council scout executive.

The event, composed of two parts — “Palabas” and games — centered on activities for home and family members of KID scouts from both public and private schools.

First part involved Palabas, where groups presented their own interpretation of the musical accompaniment revolving around the theme “commitment to excellence”.

The districts that won were Camiling Central, first place; Mayantoc, second place; and Sta. Ignacia North, third place.

For the moving up category of the games portion, Gerona South won first place; Sta. Ignacia North, second place; and Paniqui West, third place.

For the balloon relay of the same portion, Sta. Ignacia North captured first place; Camiling East, second place; and Moncada North, third place.

Still for the games portion, Camiling Central won first place in the cup collection contest, with Paniqui West taking second place and Paniqui North, third place. For the cap ballet contest, Moncada North bagged first place, with Paniqui West and Moncada South taking second and third place, respectively. Meanwhile, Paniqui West won first place in the hula hoop relay, while Camiling Central and Paniqui North placed second and third, respectively.

Other districts that participated in the activity included Moncada North, Moncada South, Paniqui South and Mayantoc.

The BSP offers five sectional programs for young boys and girls. Aside from KID, it also offers Kabataan Alay sa Bayan, Boy, Senior and Rover Scouting programs.

The scouting program is anchored on the philosophy of the scout method “learning by doing,” which is a form of experiential learning where youngsters are encouraged to teach themselves, rather than being taught or instructed.

The development is a result of first-hand experiences as opposed to theoretical instruction.
