Cheerful kids in colorful costumes filled the Buddhist Tzu Chi Campus (BTCC) on October 28 as the Tzu Chi Great Love Preschool Philippines brought its Trick-or-Treat program to the Sta. Mesa headquarters.

 

With the theme “Healthy You and Healthy Me”, the students came in vegetables and fruits costume as well as animal attires to encourage healthy diet and love for animals among young children.

 

The students played games, went around the campus, and got treats from Tzu Chi offices. School directress and Tzu Chi volunteer Jane Sy thanked the staff and the parents for their support to the fun and auspicious activity. “We really feel that we are such a one big family,” Sy said.

 

The preschoolers, guided by their parents and teachers visited the Jing Si Abode and paid respect to the Buddha. “It's also so nice to see that the students, even after just staying with us for two months already know how to say ‘Gan en’ (Thank you), to always be thankful of what they have,” Sy added.

 

This is the very reason why Aileen Cua enrolled his son to the Preschool. “I believe that Tzu Chi education is about teaching young kids the values of gratitude, of cherishing your blessings, as well as being kind and loving to all beings,” Cua said.

 

“I had fun during the obstacle course, and my son really enjoyed getting the candies and toys, so we’re very happy today,” she added.

 

The Tzu Chi Great Love Preschool Philippines is a progressive school for children ages 2-4 that aims to develop young children's physical, cognitive, socio-emotional, character, and life skills, as well as Tzu Chi’s humanistic values through experiential learning in a loving and nurturing environment.
