Two Sundays ago, PCGE was launched formally under the leadership of its Executive Director, Dr. Leticia Penano-Ho, at the Cultural Center of the Philippines.If PCGE's definition of gifted is?a condition resulting from a responsive biological and environmental that manifests during the developmental period of life and describes significantly above average performance inferred from the current performance and estimates of future performance and contingent upon the person's task commitments to attainments in adaptive behavior, then Linangan sa Imahen, Retorika, at Anyo is qualified.And LIRA's?Pambansang Kumperensiya sa Panulaang Filipino?last November 25 to 26-can pass as part of?The Week for the Gifted celebration-though it was actually the highlight of LIRA's 25th?anniversary this year!
