Kuya V joined his first abacus competition last weekend. He did not get any medal. I asked if he feels sad about not winning anything. "I'm happy because I joined. I have a IPA badge on my level exam that's like winning too." He was all smile telling other kids that they did a good job.
Vs teachers encouraged him to join the competition, and he said yes. Every session teacher’s reassured each student that doing your best is important and winning is a bonus.
He did not win.
Dad and I asked if he would like to join next year’s competition, he said YES. He promised that next competition he will practice every day.
We are so proud of you!
