The first-ever Kinder Quiz Bee, which was held last November 22, proved that preschool pupils are small yet terrible. Their answers to questions during the competition showed that they learned a lot from school. As part of their learning process, they discovered, developed, and honed skills that will be helpful later in life.
The Kinder Quiz Bee had two sessions – one in the morning and another in the afternoon. The brightest kids converged at the Ching Ban Lee Memorial hall and attempted to outscore one another. Topics dealt with Science,Mathematics, and General Information.
The winners in Group A were Denzel S. So (1st Place), Simon Jaxith T. Martinez (2nd Place), Raissa Ysabelle T. Chua (3rd Place), Sasha Athena O. See (4th Place), Aizen G.

Last December 6, young voices of CKSC kindergarten pupils warmed the hearts of audiences during the Christmas Choral Festival held at St. Stephen's High School. Singing familiar songs like Joy to the World, Away in a Manger, and Angels We Have Heard on High, they also joined the MAPPRESA's Yuletide Carol held at Lucky Chinatown Mall. The two events were excellent opportunities to bring together young pupils from private schools in Manila.
The CKSC pupils looked so confident on stage and were very well applauded. Two thumbs up to the 23 Wong Chung Seng Memorial Preschool kindergarten pupils and to their trainers, Ms. Omega Tan and Mrs. Josephine Yap.
