The University of Baguio (UB) Supreme Student Council (SSC) held an outreach activity at the Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD)-Reception and Study Center for Children (RSCC) in Puguis, La Trinidad last Jan. 26.
Officers of the SSC spent the afternoon painting shirts with the children, who were provided with different stencils and paint colors.
The SSC also donated art and school materials, as well as diapers for the infants at the Center.
The painting activity was aimed at encouraging creativity in the participants, serving as an avenue for them to express their imagination. Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking – the standard-bearer in assessing creativity in children since the 1960s – found in a study that high creativity scores are better indicators of lifetime creative accomplishment.
