10 Oct Pathways to Fun, Creativity, and Learning
By Julie Tan-Sy, 1982 and Geraldine Tan-Lim, 1988
October 8, 2019 was the day when ICAAA excitedly turned over to the ICA Grade School Department a Sensory Path made by alumnae and student volunteers. A sensory path is a colorful, creative, and playful way for children to develop motor skills like balance, hand-eye coordination, and spatial awareness. The ICAAA hopes that the sensory path will be able to provide opportunities for children to actively use their senses as they explore the world through play.
The project was led by ICAAA VP for Outreach Steff Chiu-Buenaventura ’89, in collaboration with GS Science Coordinator Mrs. Sheryll Angeles, who designed the path. For almost a week, volunteers drew, painted, traced, designed, and added their personal touches to the area in front of the Grade 2 classrooms, resulting in a colorful path that was highly anticipated by the children and teachers. After it was finally unveiled, they rushed to jump, walk, skip, turn, glide, and hop on the path. Several children expressed their thanks; narrating that the path was fun and it gives them energy. It was a joy to see the children enjoy the path over and over again. Their happy faces made the project truly worthwhile!
