More than 260 story books and an external hard drive containing more than 1,000 Knowledge Channel videos and digital resources were turned over to Bago Bantay Elementary School in Quezon City.
Each child in Grade 2 received a book from Adarna Publishing House. These books were also animated by Knowledge Channel in the TV series, “Kuwentong Pambata” aired every Monday and Tuesday, 8:00AM with replays at 6:00PM. A storytelling session was also conducted by Sky employees to the enjoyment of its students and their teachers.
