A total of 152 children completed the Palau Community College’s (PCC) Summer Kids’ Program which culminated on July 5.

The PCC’s Summer Kids’ Program, which aimed to give children both refreshers and advance lessons on a particular subject, spanned for four weeks and taught children several subjects including Palauan Orthography, English and Reading, Music, Arts, Marine Science, and Singapore Math.

Parents and relatives crowded the PCC Cafeteria as they expressed support for their children who had performed what they learned throughout the course of the program during the culmination ceremony.

PCC Dean of Continuing Education Jefferson Thomas, in an interview, said that the summer program is one way of occupying children’s time in the summer as their parents went on with their regular jobs.

“We would like to ask parents to register their kids next summer so that they can retain all the information or what they learned from the classroom,” Thomas said, adding that the program will help prepare the children for the classes they are going to take in their next grade levels.

For $30 per student per class, the children can enjoy the summer lessons along with the other kids. (Rhealyn C. Pojas)
