HSG recently received a letter from Koji Chikauchi, Director of the Kanagawa International Foundation congratulating us for encouraging our students to participate in the 15th Kanagawa Biennial World Children's Art Exhibition.
Of course, the congratulations go out particularly to Jillian Ray V. Calugas and Yvonne Danica D. Rollan for their respective entries which made it to the prizewinning work among a total of 20,723 works for the Exhibition around the world and within Kanagawa Prefecture.
The prizewinning works will be exhibited at the Kanagawa Plaza for Global Citizenship in Yokohama City from July 4th to July 26th, 2009 and within Kanagawa prefecture from September 2009 to March 2010 in order to promote international exchange and global understanding through pictures.
Once again congratulations Jillian Ray and Yvonne Danica for their prizewinning entries!
Dr. Linda K. Silverman made these findings in her group's 30-year study on giftedness:
"Gifted girls and gifted boys have different coping mechanisms and are likely to face different problems. Gifted girls hide their abilities and learn to blend in with other children. In elementary school they direct their mental energies into developing social relationships; in junior high school they are valued for their appearance and sociability rather than for their intelligence. Gifted boys are easier to spot, but they are often considered “immature" and may be held back in school if they cannot socialize with children their own age with whom they have no common interests."
